Milton Teacher Accused Of Unlawful Conduct With Student May Blame Parkinson’s Medication

“Not only does the disease, but some of the medications result in this type of behavior which I think you can find on any web search,” Lawton said. “He’s got increased libido, and impulse control issues.”

Snyder was arrested Friday, at his Abington home and held on $25,000 bail over the weekend.

Snyder was expected to post his $10,000 bail after his arraignment.

Lawton said in the 27 years Snyder has worked at the school, there has never been a complaint against him.

Snyder was inducted into the Massachusetts State Track Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2009.

The group’s president says the allegations are out of character. “Nothing but positive things to say so I’m at a loss for words,” said Jim Hoar. “I just don’t understand it.”
