Mario HuntCahokia, IL – Mario Hunt, a 35-year-old coach and teacher’s aide for special needs students at Cahokia High School, is currently behind bars after being accused of sexually abusing a male student and knowingly exposing him to HIV.

Initially, the school received complaints about Hunt making inappropriate posts on Myspace.  Not having been on Myspace for years, I decided to do a little investigative journalism and find these alleged pictures/postings.

But, after 10 minutes of not being able to successfully navigate the “new” Myspace, I was left feeling old and angry.  So, I will have to leave it to your terrifying imagination, my dear reader.

The allegations against Hunt  quickly escalated about 10 days ago when a student and his mother asked police to investigate the conduct between the suspect and other young boys.

It was discovered that Hunt had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy from January-June 2011 and knowingly exposed the boy to HIV. The relationship with the teen has not been released, but charges say that Hunt “holds a position of trust authority or supervision” in relation to the minor.

Cahokia Police Chief, James Jones has said since these charges, two more victims have come forward, but the charges against Hunt seem to pertain to only one victim so far. It is unknown if the victim has actually contracted the disease or not.

“These 2 individuals were brave to come out and explain to us what took place.  We also ask that if this has happened to anybody else at the school, please contact us, we need to hear their story,” Jones said.  “We need to know, just for the fact that, we hope that if something did happen, that people are tested also.”

Police said the victims were all students at the school and that the crimes happened at school, during school hours.

Mario Hunt was arrested and charged with criminal sexual assault and transmission of HIV. He is currently in the St. Clair County Jail on $300,000 bond.

Edit Goddamnit!!! Finally found his Myspace page.  That really pissed me off.  Now I know why Grandma gets so mad at the TV remote.
