Memphis, TN – Eduardo Marmolejo, the 17-year-old student accused of stabbing his teacher to death, has been ordered to undergo a mental evaluation.
On Wednesday, 49-year-old Suzette York was found stabbed to death in a classroom at Memphis Junior Academy, a Seventh-day Adventist school of less than 100 students.
Shortly after, police had Marmolejo in custody and charged with York’s murder. He told police that he did not like York and had planned on killing her since May, ever since he found out he would be the only 11th-grade student at the school.
York had lobbied the school should expand past their current kindergarten through 10th-grades; saying it was important to keep students in a Christian setting. The school board agreed and voted last spring to extend classes through the 11th grade.
Marmolejo was the first and only student to begin his junior year there and he was not happy about it at all. One of his teachers said Marmolejo was left behind because several of his classmates had transferred to another school to finish their junior and senior years.…Continue Reading
Memphis, TN – Not a lot of details on this as it is breaking, but police say they have a 17-year-old student in custody at the Memphis Junior Academy where the Principal was found stabbed to death in a classroom.
The body of 48-year-old Suzette York was discovered by a teacher shortly after 11 a.m. Wednesday at the private school operated by the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. York had been with the school for more than three years.
The 17-year-old student was taken into custody at the scene. No motive is known at this time. The school will be out for the rest of the week.
Not a great start for a school whose classes just started on Monday.
New York, NY – According to police, Tara Driscoll, a 33-year-old English teacher at Campus Magnet High School, was arrested after police obtained videotape of her having sex with a 16-year-old student in a motel room.
It’s not being reported that Driscoll ever taught the kid, but he was student at her high school and the tape explicitly shows the two engaged in various sexual activities in a room at the Capri Motel.
Driscoll was arrested after the boy confessed to his mother that he had sex with the teacher. Police seized the tape the pair had made during their session and charged Driscoll with third-degree rape and third-degree criminal sexual act.
Prosecutors allege Driscoll has a history of alcohol abuse and was recently in rehab, but since she is a teacher, she has not been fired and has simply been re-assigned out of the classroom.
Ok, we see the chick’s picture and I think we can all agree the term “rape” being used is the legal term. Some are pointing out how different people would be reacting if genders were reversed and I say so what?…Continue Reading
Springboro, Ohio – Stacy Schuler, 33, used to be a physical education teacher at Mason High School who once wrote in her Health Education Philosophy portion of her application that she wanted to teach students about major risk factors for teenagers including “sexual behaviors that result in disease, STDs, and unwanted pregnancies.
After receiving an anonymous tip, police would find that her teaching methods included banging members of the high school’s football team.
Schuler would resign from her position shortly after a grand jury indicted her on 16 counts of sexual battery, a third-degree felony; and three misdemeanor counts of providing alcohol to minors. She’s looking at up to 81 years in jail if convicted on all charges, but as we have seen in these types of cases, that’s highly unlikely.
She pleaded not guilty to the charges, denying any of the things she is accused of doing ever happened. Her trial was supposed to start in May, but it has now been pushed back to August after she changed her plea from not guilty to not guilty by reasons of insanity, effectively increasing the chances that I will think about her later while masturbating.…Continue Reading
Syracuse, NY - Garth Hill, 28, pleaded guilty to charges related to police claims that he walked into an elementary school and molested a first-grade teacher in front of her class. He was promised a sentence of 12-years to life in exchange for the plea.
In addition to the accusation that Hill entered McKinley-Brighton Elementary School and subjecting a teacher to sexual contact by force in front of her class, Hill was accused of fondling another teacher in the hallway afterward.
Officials said that Hill ran when he was confronted by an administrator, but left his wallet behind and was identified by witnesses. That “leaving the wallet behind” thing never works so good for criminals.
Assistant District Attorney Jeremy Cali said that the sentence was “very appropriate.”
“If someone is willing to walk into a school, and into a classroom of 6 and 7 year olds, and sexually assault a teacher, he needs to be locked up,” Cali said.
Defense attorney Thomas Ryan said Hill was under the influence of drugs when he entered the school.…Continue Reading
WEST SENECA, N.Y. – Looks like we have another man posing as a woman on Facebook to get pictures from young boys, then blackmailing them into sending him more. Our first story was last month and involved a UNC college student, now it involves a substitute teacher.
The FBI says 25-year-old Timothy Bek, a former substitute teacher at West Seneca West Senior High School, has been charged with possession of child pornography after he got busted posing as a woman named “Sarah Grayson” on Facebook and talking underage students into sending him naked photos of themselves.
These charges may be upgraded as investigators have proof that he also attempted to blackmail his victims, telling them if they do not send him more photos, he’d distribute the ones he already had. They originally identified three victims, and now have identified several others. They are now trying to find out if some or all of the victims attended West Seneca High School.
While Assistant Superintendent Dr. Patrick Phelan said they’re not aware of Bek behaving inappropriately with students while employed with the school district, police are looking into whether Bek used school equipment, or his position in the schools, to search for his potential victims.…Continue Reading
Beech Grove, IN – Sara Kifer, an Indiana teacher who is currently suspended, will go to court related to a No Contact Order based on allegations of her stalking a student last year at Beech Grove High School.
A investigation into Kifer’s behavior towards an unnamed student was begun by by the Department of Education after a student claimed that she fell in love with him during his senior year. The student reportedly said that he ignored her advances at first, but eventually felt it necessary to turn letters Kifer had allegedly written to him over to his school counselor.
The school responded by suspending Kifer immediately and a No Contact Order was issued by a county judge. According to the victim, neither of these actions – or his graduation – were a deterrent. When he started college that fall, Kifer reportedly began trying to reach him through his circle of friends.
“First it was another student at my college and through that she made contact with people I know and began contacting them in other manners,” the stalking victim said.…Continue Reading
The boy was in an after-school program in the cafeteria of Osteen Elementary School when he began running around screaming like an idiot. When the teacher, 47-year-old Kelleen Long, approached the boy he grabbed a pencil and began moving towards another student.
When Long stepped in to protect the other student, the 8-year-old turned on her and attempted to stab her in the face with the pencil. Long was able to shield her face but was stabbed in the forearm, leaving lead lodged inside her. The boy then dropped to the ground.
Long did not require medical attention, but according to deputies she does want to file charges against the boy. His mother was called to the school to calm him down and explained that while he was not on any medication, her son was taking fish oil to help with his anger issues.
I’m thinking maybe it’s time she introduces the boy to handfuls of Valium…or possibly a dog crate.…Continue Reading
Coleman Eaton Jr was teaching a class at Riverdale Elementary School when he allegedly walked to the back of the classroom and told the students not to turn around. Of course some did, and they say they witnessed Eaton urinating in a garbage can. One of these student went to the office and reported the incident.
Eaton was arrested immediately and charged with two counts of aggravated child molestation. Last reports were that he was still sitting in Clayton County Jail after he was unable to pay a $50,000 bond. Eaton denies the accusations, but Riverdale police Major Greg Barney says they have evidence that he did, in the form of Eaton’s DIY urinal.
Parents at the school are equally shocked and disgusted. “You don’t expect that from a teacher,” said parent Erica Reese. “That’s nasty. That’s why there are plenty of restrooms.”
Check out this video from CBS Atlanta for some more info, including some PTA meddling in how the school handled the situation.…Continue Reading
Memphis, TN — Meet 50-year-old Ruth Shrader – she’s accused of repeatedly having sex with her teenage godson for the past two years, beginning when he was 15.
Shrader, a close friend of the boy’s family, is also an assistant pastor at the family’s former church and elementary school teacher.
The teen reportedly told police the sex was consensual and began when Shrader treated him to a massage. As the relationship progressed, Shrader reportedly showered the teen with gifts, cash and trips in exchange for nookie.
Charged last week with statutory rape by an authority figure, Shrader has since been released on $10,000 bail.
A Memphis City Schools spokesperson said Shrader is a teacher at A.B. Hill Elementary School, but the victim is not a student. Even so, Shrader is on unpaid leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
Okeechobee, FL — This handsome fella before you is 28 year-old Joel Huddleston. According to reports, Joel landed himself in a nice big heap of shit Tuesday night after his wife took some pictures of him in a compromising position…in bed with a half-naked 12 year-old girl.
Authorities say the woman entered a locked bedroom and found the pair, both asleep, immediatley whipped out her cell phone and snapped a few shots of the girl and Joel, his hands allegedly on the girl’s private parts. This evidence was promptly turned over to authorities, which led to Huddleston being arrested Thursday.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a DD story without a little something else to spice it up. Turns out Mr. Huddleston is not only a youth pastor at Buckhead Ridge Christian Church, he’s also the girl’s basketball coach at Yearling Middle School and a social studies teacher. Says one former student: “He was always really creepy. He’d get close to girls, they’d keep their distance with him.” Sounds like a real charmer.…Continue Reading
An unidentified special education teacher at Webster Elementary School was suspended earlier this week after allegations surfaced that he ordered the third and fourth graders in his class to remove their underwear in the hopes of solving a mystery of the “fecal” variety.
From what I understand, one of the man’s seven students either took a dump or left skid marks on the floor of the classroom late last month. In order to identify the alleged dookie dropper, the teacher had each student remove their underwear in a private bathroom stall while he waited outside. The children were then directed to redress themselves and exit the stall…skivvies in hand. Teach then inspected each and every pair. What, exactly, he was looking for is unclear, but dingleberries come to mind.
The teacher apparently said that he was trying to find out who had shat their pants so the guilty party could be sent to the school nurse.…Continue Reading
WILLIAMSBURG, KY – Republican state Rep. Dewayne Bunch was taken to the hospital after suffering a critical head injury while trying to break up a fight at the school he has taught at for the last 17 years.
A 15-year-old and 16-year-old were fighting in the Whitley County High School cafeteria Teusday morning when Bunch, a math and science teacher at the school, ran over to intervene. He also ran into a punch that knocked him to the ground where he hit his head, causing him to suffer a severe head injury.
“The juveniles were fighting. Mr. Bunch and two of the other teachers went to break it up. Mr. Bunch ran over to it, ran into a punch that one of the juveniles was throwing, made (Bunch) bobble backwards, hit the floor and he’s been unconscious ever since. He got himself between two young men fighting.” Whitley Sheriff Colan Harrell said.
When paramedics arrived, Bunch was unresponsive and bleeding from the ears. Emergency responders performed a tracheotomy procedure on Bunch before taking him to Baptist Regional Medical Center in extremely critical condition, then transferred to University of Kentucky Medical Center.…Continue Reading
Margaret Boyett, 41, has been teaching autistic students at the school since 2009, but her future employment at the school, or any school for that matter, isn’t looking so hot after being accused of abusing one of her students in February.
She has been accused of grabbing a 7th grader by the wrist and forcing him to hit himself “7 to 8 times” in the head in an attempt to make him apologize for something. A teacher’s aide was in the room at the time and yelled for Boyett to stop. She even had to grab Boyett’s arm to keep her from slapping the boy.
The aide immediately reported the incident to school officials who in turn notified the police the following day. Investigators attempted to question the victim, but because of his disability, documents say he was “unable to comprehend the event and form a cognitive statement.”
On Tuesday, Boyett was arrested in her lawyer’s office and was being held on a $6,000 bail, under the alias Margie Terranova (?), until her first court appearance sometime today.…Continue Reading
LOUISVILLE, Ky. –Last Friday, police found a car parked in a handicapped zone at a closed park. Inside where a 38-year-old Carrie Shafer and a 17-year-old boy. They were partially clothed and it was obvious the pair had been involved in a little of the in-and-out as evident by the steamed up windows and the “moist condoms” (their words, not mine) found outside the car.
Since the boy was over the age of consent, Shafer was cited for unlawful transaction with a minor for providing alcohol and unauthorized parking in a handicapped zone. That was until a couple days later when they learned that Shafer was a biology teacher at duPont Manual High School, and the teen was one of their students.
Shafer resigned on Sunday, but that hasn’t stopped the Louisville Metro Police Department’s Crimes Against Children Unit to begin their own investigation. Even though it is legal for Shafer to allow 17-year-old penis inside her, it is not legal or her to do so if the 17-year-old is a student; that would be a felony.…Continue Reading
Charlotte, NC – Thank God some people are as dumb as they are deviant. A teacher’s assistant at a North Carolina elementary school was arrested yesterday, charged with sexual exploitation of a minor and first-degree sex offense.
James Edward Meskill, 38, let a co-worker at J.H. Gunn Elementary borrow his camcorder on Tuesday. Unfortunately for him, police say he forgot about the child porn he left on it.
The co-worker discovered the sexually explicit video involving a minor and she immediately called police. Investigators watched the video and determined that Meskill not only made the recordings but also committed sex acts with a minor in the video.
On Wednesday, police arrested him at J.H. Gunn Elementary School where he had been employed since February. They have also searched his home for more evidence.
School officials told reporters that the victim in Meskill’s video was not a student of CMS schools, nor do they believe Meskill victimized any students of CMS schools. The news report I watched this morning made it sound like it was a relative Meskill’s.…Continue Reading
ARVADA, Colo. – Last month we posted an article about the city of Arvada arresting a 11-year-old boy over a violent stick figure drawing he drew while in class.
The image depicted stick figures of himself with a gun, pointed at four other stick figures with the words “teacher must die.” He was later arrested at his home and charged with a third degree misdemeanor, interfering with staff and students at an educational facility.
His mother says the boy, who suffers from ADHD, was simply following a therapist’s suggestion to draw his frustrations rather than act them out. And if you read our article you can tell I thought the entire thing was ridiculous, mostly because of some of the whacked out shit I drew as a kid in school (and now in meetings at work).
But I am backing off on my sentiments in regards to this story after the City of Arvada came out and defended the arrest. Seems as if there is some back-story that they are not allowed to reveal, and that the mother withheld when she went to the media.…Continue Reading
ATHERTON, Calif.— A teacher at Selby Lane School is on paid leave after he rattled a desk to get the attention of his class and a startled student called 911.
Police were called to the school after receiving a 911 call about a teacher causing a disturbance and possibly throwing things. When they arrived they found a calm teacher with a class in session. Police determined nothing had been thrown, but rather the teacher had simply rattled a desk to get the attention of his 8th-grade math class.
One of the girls in the class, probably a foreign exchange student from France, got scared by this and left the classroom to call police on a cell phone before running through the hallways screaming at her own shadow.
The other students in the class weren’t bothered by the teacher’s actions, said Sgt. Tim Lynch. Though the teacher “dramatically” made his point, “it wasn’t a teacher out of control,” he added.
Because police were called, the teacher, who has never had a complaint filed against him in the past, will remain on paid leave until the investigation is complete.…Continue Reading
Phoenix, AZ – 47-year-old Keith Kiefer, an unemployed handyman, and Patrick Trejo, a 25-year-old music teacher at Raul Castro Middle School, are each charged with conspiring to have bestial-sexual contact with an animal after both got stung in an online dog-sexin’ type sting.
According to authorities, both men were trolling Craigslist in search of some man on beast action. Trejo’s ad allegedly read, “Hit me up if you have a pup to play with.” He was searching for someone interested in a little “K-9 play.” And Kiefer’s ad? He was reportedly seeking “beasty worship of the kinky kind.” Kiefer also requested pictures of the canine’s genitals, which he said he “liked very much.” And I just threw up a little in my mouth…
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said the “handler” the men assumed they were corresponding back and forth with was actually a team of undercover deputies. The wannabe rover wranglers separately agreed to meet the “handler” and his male shepherd mix at a local motel on Thursday.…Continue Reading
A student at Benfield School made a post on Facebook asking his friends to dare him into pulling stupid stunts. One of these stunts has gotten him and some other students expelled from school.
With the urging from Facebook friends, the student took a teacher’s cup from her class and then teabagged it in the corridor. For those of you unfamiliar with the term “teabagging,” the boy basically placed his balls in her cup she uses to drink from. He then took a picture of his balls in the cup, and posted the image online.
No reports on exactly how school officials found out, but their reaction was swift once they did. The student who dunked his dangly bits in the cup was expelled permanently while three other students are on fixed-term expulsions.…Continue Reading
