BLOG POST #172: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving a middle school science teacher.

Being a school teacher involves so much more than teaching. Parents trust teachers to not only educate their children but also keep them safe. When a teacher violates that trust—whether it’s at school or not—too often, it’s criminal.

The Crime

This case involves a woman whose identity is protected because the abuse she suffered began when she was 10-years-old. And because she was a minor for most of the time she was abused, much of the case detail is also protected.

Deplorable Teacher Behavior

Posts about real school tragedy, crime and/or events can be upsetting.

I have friends who are teachers. They’ve spent many years obtaining their teaching certificates. Also, they’ve spent many hours building their careers. Often, they work off the clock to grade and plan.

It’s incomprehensible to me that someone would go to great lengths for a career and then throw it away because of a sexual attraction to underage children. But then, I don’t understand how an adult can be sexually attracted to a child and frankly it makes me angry.

Last week, I shared research on three teens that made online threats to shoot up a school. Two of the three boys served time in jail for their actions.

Party Tonight

Nothing good can happen when a group of teenagers party in a motel room. Two teens, a 15-year-old male, and a 13-year-old female were engaging in sex on one of the two beds in the room when the 18-year-old teen began recording them.
