Former Pittsburgh school psychologist cleared of child sex charges

An Allegheny County jury Friday acquitted a former Pittsburgh Public Schools child psychologist of all charges related to raping a boy.

Donald Stettner, 53, was accused of assaulting the boy, now in his late 20s, weekly from the time he was 9 until he was 17.

The jury deliberated three days before finding Stettner not guilty.

“(Stettner) is certainly pleased and relieved,” said Tim Lucas, one of Stettner’s attorneys. “This has been a long haul. This case has been kicking around for seven years.”

Lucas said witness credibility was a factor in the trial.

Prosecutors declined comment after the verdict.

The victim went to police in 2003, and Stettner was ordered to stand trial later that year. The Tribune-Review does not identify accusers in sex assault cases.

Stettner’s ex-wife, Rosalia Montes, 54, testified against him, saying she walked in on Stettner and the boy during sex acts on several occasions. In March 2009, she pleaded guilty to corruption of minors, indecent assault and endangering the welfare of children.
