Modesto, CA – A California teacher who made national headlines for leaving his wife and three children for a teen student, has been accused of sexually abusing a different teenage girl that he taught in 1998.
Jordan Powers, 18, quit school to move in with her teacher James Hooker, 41, has now dumped him following his arrest for alleged sexual misconduct with another student. Jordan, who last February defended their odd pairing on national news, now fears there may be more students
“My heart dropped. I felt betrayed. I just have a gut feeling there are other girls,” Powers said, according to the ABC News interview. She went on to say, “He called me from jail and, yes, I told him that we’re done. I lost everything for this guy. I lost my senior year. I gave up all my friends at high school because they didn’t agree with me.”
Jordan’s mother, Tammie Powers, is pushing for a bill in California that would make it a felony for a public school teacher to date a student in the same school, regardless of age, even if the student is 18.…
Brooklyn, NY - A teacher’s aid has been arrested after he allegedly videotaped himself spanking a child and fondling another – in a public school classroom.
FBI agents arrested 40-year-old Taleek Brooks after a computer and two external hard drives seized from his home were found to contain child porn. Brooks became the target of a child porn sting after he traded some child porn images with an undercover police officer online. But turns out Brooks was doing more than just trading child porn, the sicko was also creating it.
Two of the videos retrieved were taken in a classroom at Weeksville School where Brooks has worked since 1995. According to the complaint, one was of Brooks fondling a child’s genitals and another was of him spanking a naked child. Investigators believe the videos were shot sometime between January 2008 and January 2011.
The complaint also states that Brooks “admitted that he had been downloading and sharing child pornography for approximately seven years.” He also “indicated that he had collected and saved over 1,000 digital files on his computer containing child pornography.”
The Department of Education released a letter telling Weeksville School parents to call a confidential FBI hotline, 212-384-2700, if they have any information relevant to the investigation or believe that one of their children may have been victimized by Brooks.…
GUTHRIE, Okla. — An Oklahoma couple have been arrested and charged with child neglect after one of their kids showed up to school with a marijuana pipe in its diaper.
The child’s parents, Jessica and Jesse Renaker, were subsequently arrested and charged with child neglect and drug possession after police showed up to their filthy home and found over an ounce of marijuana, a loaded .380-caliber handgun and four marijuana pipes within easy reach of the couple’s two children.
If convicted, they face anywhere from a $5,000 fine to life in prison. They have since been released from jail on $52,000 each. No word on how these charges mess with Jessica’s professions as a certified early childhood education instructor for the Head Start program.
For those of you unaware, the Head Start program provides comprehensive education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families. Basically, it is supposed to give poor kids a leg-up before entering into regular school in hopes of better test grades.
Radnor, PA — A teacher at Presbyterian Children’s Village, a school that caters to children victims of violence, neglect and other serious conditions, was arrested last week after another school employee witnessed him sockin’ a female student in the face.
According to police, on January 23, 41-year-old Richard Little requested help from an on-duty supervisor at the center for help with a student who was throwing chalk at him. When the supervisor entered the classroom, he saw chalk on the floor and told Little to leave the room.
The supervisor told police Little then grabbed the girl, dragged her into the hallway and began punching her in the face, causing her to bleed. Other staff members intervened and Little was escorted out of the building.
Both Little and the student were transported to the hospital for treatment. The extent of the girl’s injuries are unknown, but police say Little’s hands and fingers had blood and teeth marks indicative of punching someone in face.
Little posted $100,000 bail after being arraigned on charges that included aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment.…
Kissimmee, FL — Lillian Gomez, a special needs teacher at Sunrise Elementary, may soon be standing in the unemployment line for allegedly sprinkling hot sauce on the crayons in her classroom in order to prevent her autistic students from snacking on ‘em.
Two of the children involved were apparently so traumatized by the whole thing, they refused to even touch a crayon for weeks.
“I was really upset. I couldn’t believe it. Honestly, I was like how can a teacher of so many years do something like that,” said family member Karina Holguin. “They got to be traumatized, especially for a kid who can’t express himself like any other children that can tell you this hurts or doesn’t hurt.”
When school administrators learned of the alleged incident in October, Gomez, a 12-year veteran with the district, was removed from the classroom and suspended. With pay, of course. The superintendent is now requesting Gomez be terminated. Figuratively, mind you. An employee termination hearing has been set for February 7.…
FRESNO, CA – Yeah, it’s as disgusting as you think it is. Neng Yang, a teacher at Freedom Elementary since 2007, has been accused of blindfolding a 7-year-old girl and tricking her into giving him oral sex in what he called “the lollipop game.”
The 43-year-old got busted after the girl’s alert mother arrived at the school early and noticed that neither her daughter nor her teacher, Yang, were outside with the rest of her class participating in PE.
When her daughter got out of school and into the car, her mother asked why she and Yang were not with the rest of the class and her daughter explained that she had been playing the lollipop game. When asked what kind of game this was, the girl explained that Yang would blindfold her in a darkened, locked classroom and have her suck on different lollipops. If she guessed the flavor, then they moved on to the next lollipop. If she didn’t, well then she kept on sucking until she did.
Mortified, the mother immediately went to authorities.…
Boston, MA – Police in Boston have arrested a popular elementary school teacher on charges of possessing, making and distributing child pornography.
David Ettlinger, 34, was placed behind bars on a slew of child porn related charges after federal agents raided his home and found hundreds of pornographic images of children and dozens of stolen girls’ underpants he had taken from pools, locker rooms and changing areas.
The raid was a result of a federal probe of Dreamboard, a members-only website whose members distribute and watch child pornography that we reported on last year after some of their members were busted. Ettlinger had achieved VIP status within the Dreamboard community, a feat that can be achieved by producing and uploading original child pornography… something Ettlinger had.
Among the hundreds of child porn images in his possession, investigators found some Ettlinger made himself. It was in the form of a video he’d made of a sleeping 12-year-old girl. In it, Ettlinger pulls back the underwear of the sleeping girl, exposing her genitals to the camera.…
ALABASTER, Ala. – A man has admitted to molesting over 20 girls during his 25-year career as an Alabama schoolteacher.
Police charged 49-year-old Daniel Montague Acker Jr. with three counts of sexual abuse after a girl, aged 12 0r 13, went to police to report that Acker had molested her back in 2009. Police believe some of the molestation happened in the classroom but they are not sure if any of the other students present witnessed it or knew exactly what was happening if they did.
Acker would admit to investigators that he molested the girl and go on to admit that he had also molested up to 20 other girls who police believe were either students of Acker’s or students at the schools he has taught at.
This isn’t the first time Acker has been accused of inappropriate behavior with children. Back in 1992, Acker was charged with child abuse but those charges were dropped when a grand jury refused to indict.
Because of this, the county school board reinstated him as a teacher where he worked as a fourth grade teacher for 25 years, drove a school bus for 15 years and since his 2009 retirement, a substitute bus driver… allegedly molesting little girls the entire time.…
You see… Parker was a Florida Sunday school teacher. Sadly, he was arrested and convicted on child pornography charges in 2009. This happened after he was found to have taken photos of young girls at the church camps at which he volunteered, cut out their faces, and and pasted them on adult pornographic images. Parker was subsequently sentenced to five years for possession of child pornography.
It was reported that, while jailed, Parker read the story of John Stelmack. Stelmack was a principal at a nearby elementary school who had been arrested in 2007 for basically the same thing that Parker did. Stelmack was reported to have taken photographs of his female students and attached them to photographs of adult pornography. The resulting images were found in his school office. Stelmack was later convicted on child pornography charges, but that conviction was recently overturned.…
SOMERVILLE, NJ – Police have arrested the assistant principal at Bernardsville Middle School, accusing him of secretly filming underage boys taking showers at a Catholic high school for over three years.
I haven’t found what triggered the investigation that led to police searching 54-year-old Patrick J. Lott’s home, but when they did they found numerous videos of underage boys showering together. Using the videos, they were able to locate a hidden camera installed in the shower area of Immaculata High School where Lott volunteered as a videographer.
Prosecutors said the videos were made between January 2008 and Dec. 13 of this year and featured at least 22 boys showering, nine of which were underage at the time they were surreptitiously filmed.
Lott has been charged with 22 counts of invasion of privacy, and more than two dozen charges of endangering the welfare of a child. If he makes his $500,00 bail, he is not allowed to return to work, nor is he to have any contact with any children under the age of 16.…
Lakeland, FL – A sixth-grade geography teacher at Lakeland Highlands Middle School has been charged with battery after she threw her food through the driv-thru window of a Florida McDonald’s.
According to the arrest report, 39-year-old Simone Paolercio was upset with her $20 McDonald’s order Saturday morning. She wasn’t happy with two of the hash browns she had received and was demanding a refund.
When the manager refused to refund Paolercio her money, video captures Paolercio as she hurls a bag of food back through the window, hitting an employee in the face and chest. She then proceeds to place a seemingly never-ending supply of McDonald’s breakfast items on the window sill, which fall to the floor.
She takes off before police arrive, but they eventually catch up to Paolercio at her home where she would first deny ever throwing any food at the McDonald’s worker. But unlike the manager, she couldn’t argue with the surveillance footage and was arrested on a charge of battery. She has since been released and is awaiting a trial date.…
LIVINGSTON, TN – If any of you are in Tennessee and would like a job teaching math to elementary kids, Allons Elementary is about to have a job opening after one of their math teachers used a permanent maker to write “stupid” on one of his student’s forehead.
The incident reportedly happened on Dec 6 when a student in Alex Boles’s math class asked a reasonable question about their lesson. Boles answered the student then used a permanent marker to write the word “stupid” on the kid’s forehead. For a bit of added scumbag, he wrote it backwards so the kid could read it when they looked in the mirror.
Reports are the student sat in class with the word on their head for two hours. Another employee told Superintendent Matt Eldridge about what Boles had done, and his reaction was immediate. He suspended Boles and minced no words when he told reporters he will do what he can to ensure the teacher loses his job after the investigation is complete.…
Westlake, LA — Twenty-eight-year-old bible school teacher/hottie Heather N. Daughdrill has found herself on the business end of the Louisiana justice system having been arrested for inappropriate sexual contact with a 13-year-old boy.
It was reported that text messages discovered by the 13-year-old boy’s parents prompted a call to authorities in early November. The subsequent investigation determined that Daughdrill had ‘inappropriate sexual contact’ with the boy on ‘multiple occasions between June and October’ after ‘picking him up from school without the parents’ knowledge.’
Daughdrill reportedly met the boy while she was working as a teacher/aide at a Summer Bible school camp the boy had attended.
“So when Corinthians talks about people who won’t inherit the Kingdom of God, it is talking about people who do that stuff that we just did, right?”
Daughdrill was arrested on November 28 and charged with 4 counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile; 8 counts of sexual battery; 3 counts of 2nd degree kidnapping; 1 count contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile; and 1 count indecent behavior with a juvenile.…
BOSTON — A University of Utah professor was arrested on Saturday after being accused of watching child porn on his laptop while on a Delta flight from Utah to Boston.
A passenger sitting behind 47-year-old Grant D. Smith, a professor of material science and engineering, witnessed Smith watching the alleged child porn and took a picture of him with their cell phone while also notifying the flight crew.
Once the plane landed at Boston Logan International Airport, police were waiting for Smith and asked to see his laptop. After a bit of searching, police say they discovered “disturbing images of child pornography.”
Smith was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography. Instead of attending a conference for the Material Research Society, the father of two was placed in jail on a $15,000 bond and was still there as of this morning. The university has placed him on administrative leave, stating he would be fired if the allegations turned out to be true.
If the accusations are true, and Smith was watching child porn on a laptop while in the first class section of a Delta airplane, then he’s definitely one of the dumber criminals we have ever posted about on this site.…
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – A former teacher at a church school in Colorado Springs has been arrested, accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student. Two pastors at the school and the school’s former principal were also arrested for allegedly failing to report the abuse.
The Hilltop Baptist School teacher, 32-year-old Terah Allyn Rawlings, is accused of having a sexual relationship with the boy during the 2007-2008 school year and the following summer, ending when he broke up with her. They didn’t keep the relationship very discrete, leading to teachers and students reporting the abuse to the principle, the school’s senior pastor as well as the school’s athletic director and associate pastor. These people did not contact police and reportedly tried to covered up the relationship.
Now why would a religious school be so quick to hide the illegal relationship between one of their teachers and one of their students? The fact that the senior pastor, 63-year-old Franklin “Wayne” Knight, is Rawlings’ uncle and the associate pastor, 57-year-old Raymond “Alan” Knight, is Rawlings’ father may have something to do with it.…
Stockton, CA – Lincoln Unified School District has placed one of its teachers on paid leave while investigating allegations she was operating a collective of pornographic websites using her district-issued Apple laptop. Heidi Kaeslin, 35, was the creator of teachertitties.com and mysluttyteachers.com which, by name, appear to be educational sites. Sadly, the Lincoln Unified School District disagrees.
According to reports, the investigation concerned allegations Kaeslin (pictured) and Richard Fields, 51, were using the school computer to support several for-profit websites, adult-oriented sites. Kaeslin, a special-education teacher, has worked for Lincoln Unified since 2002. She also served as the Lincoln High girls soccer coach during part of that time. Fields, incidentally, was Lincoln High’s School Resource Officer at the time.
District officials became aware of the possible misuse of her computer after her husband – reportedly suspicious of the relationship between Kaeslin and Fields – told them of her endeavors. The district is said to have confiscated her school-issued laptop and hired a computer expert to perform a forensic study of the hard drive contents.…
Billerica, MA – Picking up where we left off yesterday, I got a couple more teacher stories to post, starting with the middle school teacher who was arrested and charged with armed robbery.
According to the police report, 27-year-old Jennifer Horton, a 6th grade English and Social Studies teacher at Marshall Middle School, was sitting in a parked car with her boyfriend, Andrew Pasquale, and a 54-year-old man who was in the backseat.
At some point Horton and Pasquale, who is an acquaintance of the victim, pointed a gun at the victim sitting in the backseat while demanding cash and his prescription medications. The victim told police that after the couple took $103, OxyContin pills and a Social Security card, he was sprayed with pepper spray before he was able to get out of the car.
Police have arrested Horton and Pasquale, charging them both with armed robbery. Bill Ryan, the superintendent of schools, said Horton is now on paid administrative leave and not allowed on school property.…
Schaumburg, IL – A couple of teachers are in the news today, starting with a math teacher at a Christian school who just got busted jacking off behind his desk in front of a classroom full of students.
Police say 75-year-old Paul LaDuke, a teacher at Schaumburg Christian School for over 10 years, was seated behind his podium when he lowered his pants and began masturbating. Another student noticed what he was doing and told another teacher. Since this is not a public school, LaDuke was fired that same day and police were contacted.
On Monday, after investigators interviewed several students, LaDuke was arrested and charged with sexual exploitation of a child. Police believe LaDuke has been doing this several times a year for a decade. Police also said there is no evidence that any students were inappropriately touched or physically harmed.
Maybe it’s because of all the weird shit we post, the only things about this story that surprised me was that LaDuke was capable of an erection and that he chose to lower his pants to take care of it.…
