MARIETTA, GA — Mary Pursley, a special education teacher at Mount Bethel Elementary School, was arrested after police say she put an autistic student into a trash can and compared him to Oscar the Grouch.
The incident happened on Thursday during an after-school program when a second-grade student with autism began yelling and screaming in the classroom because he was “angry and upset about returning inside” and because another student was bothering him.
Pursley came into the classroom to talk to the boy and told him that if he continued with his trashy behavior, she would put him in a trash can. The boy did not stop, so Pursley made good on her word.
So, in front of other students with special needs and three adults in the classroom, Pursley picked the boy up and held him upside down by his legs inside a trash can. According to the arrest warrant, the student was crying, screaming and yelling for Pursley to stop.
Pursley was arrested on Monday and is now facing a first degree felony charge of cruelty to children for causing excessive physical or mental pain.…

LAKE STEVENS, WA – Two third grade girls from Sunnycrest Elementary School have been suspended after they bypassed Internet filtering software on their school supplied laptops and shared explicit pornographic images with other students while in class.
The two girls were in class using the laptops at the time, says Lake Stevens school district spokeswoman Jamie Taylor. According to the district, the school system subscribes to a filtering software that blocks certain content like pornography, gambling, obscenities, etc.
The girls were able to view the porn due to a change in the search engine that had not been updated by the filtering software company. Regardless, the district says they are standing by their decision to suspend the two girls because instead of alerting their teacher, they shared the images with other students.
Austin Maxwell, the stepfather of one of the girls, isn’t happy with their decision. He says they have parental locks on their home computer that work, and that his daughter only saw the images after searching for words on the urging of another student.…

FRESNO, CA – A lot of “debate” going regarding a story out of California where a mother has filed a legal claim against the former teacher of her developmentally disabled girl for putting the girl in an enclosure that the mother calls a cage.
Ledelldra Brooks says when she showed up unannounced to her 7-year-old daughter’s classroom at Viking Elementary School, she found her daughter wearing a dirty diaper inside a makeshift enclosure made from a toddler gate and a crib gate that were attached to bookshelves.
Not happy with the situation, Brooks immediately took her daughter out of the classroom, notified the school’s principal and called police. A teacher’s aide explained to the responding investigators that the girl was one of seven children in the classroom and that the enclosure, which had been there for three years, was not used for punishment.
The aide said students were put in the gated area when they were out of control or posed a risk to themselves and classmates. In the case of Brooks’ daughter, the girl had been disruptive in class and had scratched one of the aides.…

Kenner Police Chief Michael Glaser says the two teachers, 32-year-old Shelley Dufresne and 24-year-old Rachel Respess, met with the student after a football game on September 12th, then drove to Respess’ home where they participated in a threesome that lasted until the early morning hours.
Regular readers of DD know we’ve reported on a slew of women having sex with their students, to the point that I get sick of writing them up. The obvious difference with this particular story is that it involves two teachers at the same time.

MILWAUKEE, WI — The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee fraternity investigated over sexual assault claims last year, has been suspended after accusations of using a potential date rape drug at a party full of underage kids.
Last Friday, Tau Kappa Epsilon held a party at their off-campus frat house. For $8 you could also receive an access card that would allow you to get free drinks. The catch, according to one girl at the party who ended up at the hospital, “you have to be hot” to get one.
A few hours into the party, campus police responded to reports of people at the party being so drunk that they were unable to walk and were vomiting. Police would find 42 kids under the age of 21 in the basement with either red or black X’s marked on their hands. The fraternity would not explain to police what the X’s meant.
Three women and a male at the party would end up taking a trip to the hospital where, according to a search warrant, one of the girls told police that after consuming some of a drink given to her by a frat member “she had a weird feeling and sensation prior to blacking out which she had never felt before.”
Another girl said she blacked out 30 minutes after someone poured her a drink then moved “the cup under the bar out of sight; after a few moments the male pulled the cup back on top of the bar and gave her the mixed drink.”
The male said he got sick shortly after taking sips from a drink given to one of the girls.…
LOS ANGELES, CA – Virginia Nguyen, a third year medical student at UCLA, is facing felony charges after being accused of stealing an iPad from a dying cancer patient.
Natalie Packer was being treated at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center for an aggressive form of breast cancer when she went into cardiac arrest. Unfortunately, Packer could not be saved.
Afterwards, Packers family members noticed the iPad she used for entertainment and communicating with family members was missing. Using the tracking app on the device, they found the iPad was still at the Medical Center, but the registration had been changed from “Natalie’s iPad” to “Virginia’s iPad.”
Police were called and the resulting investigation revealed that “Virginia” was 32-year-old Virginia Nguyen. She claimed it was all a misunderstanding, and that she’d accidentally picked up Natalie’s iPad mistaking it for her own… then changed the registered owner…
Police must have believed that excuse as much as I do, as they arrested her on charges of petty theft, grand theft of lost property, and computer access and fraud.…
SILOAM SPRINGS, AR – We’ve been reporting on teachers sleeping with students for almost ten years, but I swear it seems as if it’s becoming more common. So much so that I now have to choose which teacher story I want to write up.
Today I chose not to go with the Oklahoma teacher who followed a student 650 miles to have sex, and decided on 32-year-old Mary Faith McCormick. She’s the married teacher who just got busted having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old student.
According to the affidavit, the sexual relationship between the two began after a friend of the 13-year-old dared him to contact McCormick. He did, and McCormick reciprocated.
The relationship eventually turned into a sexual one with the two having sex on at least two occasions between June and August. On one of these occasions, the boy and a friend went over to McCormick’s apartment to watch a movie where the 13-year-old had sex with McCormick in her bedroom.
The two were busted mainly because of their Snapchat activity.…
Matthew Burdette killed himself on November 29. His family had noticed the once happy, popular teen had become withdrawn in the days leading up to his suicide, but say they never saw it coming.
Matthew left a note that stated he had no friends and that he could no longer handle school. Wanting answers, his family started asking questions – starting with school officials at University City High School.
They say school officials wouldn’t tell them anything about what may have happened at the school to have caused Matthew to suddenly hate school so bad that it would be part of his reasoning for ending his own life.
However, other students didn’t have such issues. They told Matthew’s family that their son was being relentlessly bullied over a video that was posted online that went viral.…
SURPRISE, AZ – A 5-year-old boy has been accused of sexual misconduct after he pulled his pants down while on his school’s playground.
The boy’s mother says that back in April, her son was playing on the playground at Ashton Ranch Elementary School when another student told him if he didn’t pull his pants down he was going to do it for him.
So her son pulled down his pants and underwear in front of other students and teachers. The boy was taken to the principal’s office where he was given detention and was forced to sign a document that labeled his actions as “sexual misconduct.”
She said she’s tried to get the school to remove the label or amend the report, especially since the act was not sexual in nature and may have been the result of bullying. She also didn’t like that she was not present for the meeting in the principal’s office when her son was instructed to sign the document.
The school have declined to remove the sexual misconduct label, stating they followed proper procedures and protocols.…
PERRY HALL, MD — A father hit a teacher with a baseball bat after finding the teacher had engaged in some inappropriate texts with his teenage daughter.
Police were firsts contacted by the mother of a 15-year-old student at Perry Hall High School after she discovered a series of text messages between her daughter and a 42-year-old teacher at the school.
When police arrived and checked out the messages, they agreed that the texts seem to show an emotional relationship between the teen and the teacher that seemed inappropriate, but none of it constituted a crime.
Police would return to the home several hours later after receiving a disturbance report. The father of the teen said the teacher showed up at the family’s home wanting to talk. When the teacher refused to leave as he was instructed, the teen’s father hit the teacher with a baseball bat.
