American physical education teacher and boy’s varsity basketball coach .
He was convicted of serial rape and sexual assaults of female students. A successful sexual predator for some 20 years, he was finally convicted and sentenced to prison.
Before his 2/01/1997 suspension, the Mattapoisett, Massachusetts teacher was known as a dedicated family man and winning coach for nearly 30 years. He was arraigned on 3/20/1997 in Plymouth, Massachusetts on seven counts of rape and six counts of sexual assault against two female students who were 13 and 16 at the time. One of the incidents occurred in October 1995.
Originally, Shockro, flanked by his wife and two sons, his family and many other supporters, pleaded not guilty to the charges. His attorneys claimed the case might be one of the worst intentional destructions of a man’s career in the history of the commonwealth. Then when the judge ruled that eight other women who came forward during the investigation could testify to show a pattern of sexual attacks, he changed his plea to guilty. The attacks took place over nearly 20 years. The 6’ 3" tall, tanned Shockro reportedly targeted girls with low self-esteem, plied them with alcohol, and forced himself on them. He punched one young victim in the eye when she attempted to end the sexual relationship.
Branded a serial rapist, Shockro was sentenced to serve an eight-year state prison term.
