Parents support convicted pervy Bronx teacher: ‘He has got the golden touch’

Parents of children taught by convicted perv and former prep school teacher Richard Hovan came to court to support him as he faced the possibility of prison on Tuesday.

“He is the world’s best teacher … He has got the golden touch. He’s a smart, personable guy,” said Laurie Bliss, of Midtown, whose two sons were taught by Hovan.

Hovan, 33, an MIT grad who taught at Buckley School on the Upper East Side and Riverdale Country School in the Bronx, was convicted in February of bedding a 16-year-old former Riverdale student. He faces up to four years behind bars.

His sentencing was adjourned because his lawyer is challenging the conviction — claiming the prosecutor misled the jury and the jurors discussed the charges before summations.
