March 18, 2004 -- A former Hackensack athletic director has pleaded guilty to fondling and spanking a 17-year-old boy in his high-school office. Robert Quinn admitted Monday in Superior Court that he massaged and fondled the boy on several occasions. Quinn, 50, also said he spanked the boy with a belt and ruler and instructed the youth to do the same to him.
He pleaded guilty to third-degree child endangerment and agreed to submit to a psychiatric evaluation. Depending on the results of that evaluation, he may be sentenced to three years at a treatment center for sex offenders. He could also be placed on five years' probation and ordered to an outpatient counseling and treatment program.
Quinn is scheduled to be sentenced May 21.
He was athletic director at Leonia HS from 1989 to 2003.
