High School Teacher Allegedly Had Sex with Female Student

Kelly Ann Garcia, 29-year-old former teacher at  Hastings High School, Houston, Texas,  faces felony charges for allegedly having an inappropriate sexual  relationship with a 16-year-old female student.

Garcia has been charged with sexual assault of a child  and indecency with a child, court records show. She is free on $60,000 bond. After being under investigation for several months Garcia appeared in court on Thursday to face the formal charges against her.

The alleged victim was a 16-year-old student at Hastings when she met Kelly Garcia through a mutual friend and the two began to get close. The student said Garcia would stay with her after school numerous times while she was working on a classroom project, even though she was not her teacher. According to court documents, Garcia picked up the teen girl on  March 21, and the two went to Starbucks to have coffee. Garcia allegedly then confessed the teen that she had a romantic dream about her. A week later, Garcia sent text message to the teen girl telling she had just broken up with her boyfriend. A day after Garcia picked the girl up in a rental car and took her back to her apartment, where they kissed and cuddled passionately for the rest of the evening, the teen told investigators.

Garcia allegedly picked up the teen again next day and took her back to her place again. This time their actions got more intimate. The teen said Garcia then took her to Katz Boutique and Sex Shop and purchased a sex toy with her credit card, and then drove back hot her house where they engaged in sex. Over the next several days, teacher and the female student allegedly had more sexual encounters.

The teen told about her sexual encounters to some of her friends at school and one of them reported what they heard to an administrator. The assistant principal then began to investigate and called the teen in for questioning. The teen confirmed the allegations, but her interactions with Garcia did not end. The teacher continued sneaking around with the teen even while the investigation was ongoing, Alief ISD police said. On May 21st the teen’s father caught the two together at the park, but Garcia sped off when he tried to confront her. Investigators recovered the receipt from Katz Boutique, confirming the purchase of the sex toy, in addition to pulling phone and text records showing communication between the teacher and teen. They also found a photo of the two kissing.

Hastings High School Teacher Accused Of Having Sex With Female Student

Another Female Teacher Accused of Sex with Two Students

Megan Garland, 28-year-old teacher at Messmer High School,  Milwaukee, Wisconsin,  has been accused of having sexual relations with two male students.

According to the criminal complaint, a passerby saw a parked car in the Destiny High School parking lot with the windows “steamed up” on the evening of Thursday, May 23rd. When the passerby opened the car door found Garland performing an oral sex act on the 14-year-old boy. The witness detained Garland and the victim and then called police. The boy confirmed to police the witness’ statement.

Megan Garland is a science teacher at Messmer. A statement released by the school last week says she was suspended. The boy is student at the same school. Neither the defendant or victim are associated with Destiny High School.

The mother of the freshman who prosecutors say was sexually assaulted by a teacher, says her son was manipulated. "Totally tricked. An overgrown person preying on a child." The mother says her son is doing okay, and will seek counseling.

On the Messmer High School blog Megan Garland was described as an an easygoing teacher who enjoys laughter and comedy. She also told that she " loves sharing her love of Science with her students to get them excited about the subject just as she was in high school." And that she " loves working with Messmer students and seeing the looks on their faces when they grasp a concept. She also likes sharing her knowledge with young people in hopes of some of them becoming the scientists of tomorrow." All references to Megan Garland were removed after her arrest.

The feeling of shock is spreading throughout Messmer's community after another male  student claims he was sexually assaulted by the same female teacher. Milwaukee Police say a 15-year-old boy filed a report earlier this week which claims Megan Garland assaulted him. The MPD doesn't know if there are more victims out there, but they encourage anyone who may have been a victim to come forward. On Wednesday police confirmed the first victim told investigators he was not the only one have an inappropraite relationship with his teacher.

Milwaukee police say Garland attempted to commit suicide after being found out, and was treated for her wounds. If convicted, Garland faces up to 40 years in prison.

Messmer High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

Brittany Larson guilty of sex with teen

Brittany Larson, 29-year-old former teacher at Devereux Glenholme School, New Milford, Connecticut, was sentenced earlier this month on an agreed upon charge of third-degree sexual assault to a 10-year prison sentence, suspended after nine months, to be followed by 10 years of probation.

Larson was accused of engaging in  sexual relationship between May 2011 to December 2011  with a 16-year-old student. The school serves students with Asperger's syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and other learning disorders. Female teacher was married and pregnant in her third trimester at the time of her arrest in October 2011. Police had been conducting an investigation since being contacted a moth earlier by administrators at the school. Mrs Larson was charged with second-degree sexual assault and held by police on a $25,000 bond. According to an arrest affidavit, staff members at the school  became suspicious of an inappropriate relationship after discovering racy online interactions with on the victim’s Facebook page. Ms. Larson told authorities her relationship with the student turned intimate in June 2011, and that she set up a secret Facebook page to communicate discreetly. The victim reportedly told police that the encounters took place on campus in multiple locations.

In June 2012, she turned down a plea deal that would have meant a 10-year sentence, suspended after 15 months, instead opting for the jury trial. Anyway, later she pleaded guilty to second degree sexual assault under the Alford doctrine. The Alford doctrine means that a defendant does not agree with all of the facts of the case but believes there is enough evidence to result in a conviction, and that pleading guilty could result in a more favorable sentence. Based on the sentence handed  she will be incarcerated for nine months at the most but will still be required to register as a sex offender for 10 years.

She faces three counts of having intercourse with a child 16 or older, a misdemeanor.

Cathleen Balman granted probation for having sex with student

Cathleen Balman, 40-year-old former language arts teacher at Clearwater Middle School, Clearwater, Kansas, has been placed on three years on probation for having sex with a former student and ordered her to have no contact with non-relatives under the age of 18.

Balman, married mother-of-two, pleaded guilty in March to engaging in a year-long indecent relationship with a 15-year-old boy. She pleaded guilty to one count of indecent liberties with a child. Her trial on three counts of indecent liberties with a child was scheduled to start next day. Two of the charges were dismissed as part of the plea bargain.

Balman was arrested and charged in November 2011 with having an sexual affair with one of her students for more than a year. Plice began their investigation in September after detectives reviewed text and photo messages that had been exchanged between Balman and the student. As the investigation progressed, according to prosecutors, it reportedly became apparent that Cathleen  Balman had become engaged in a sexual relationship with the student that spanned several months.

Because she had no prior convictions, the charge was in a “border box” on the state’s sentencing grid, which means the law makes no recommendation between probation and imprisonment. District Judge Terry Pullman concluded “by the narrowest of margins” that Cathleen Balman would be less likely to re-offend if she were placed in a treatment program rather than be sent to prison for 34 months as prosecutors were recommending.

When Cathleen Balman was then given a chance to address the court she told that she was really sorry for her actions. “It’s truly the biggest regret of my life,” she said. “I’m full of remorse. I take full responsibility for what happened. If given the privilege of probation I can assure you this will never happen again."

“I’d like to apologize to the victim and his family. I am truly sorry.”

After granting her probation, Pullman said told Balman that if she does re-offend, he will revoke her probation and order her to serve a 34-month prison sentence that will run consecutively to any new sentence she may receive. Meaning if this mother who likes to have sex with teens continues sexually abusing kids, she  ends up behind bars.

Balman, who taught language arts to eighth-graders for three years prior to her arrest, had joined the school district in 2008 after teaching second-graders for one year at Argonia Elementary School.

Childplace Childcare Worker Accused of Child Sex

Megan Ralston, 27-year-old child caretaker from Jeffersonville, Indiana, has been accused of sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old boy who was living at Childplace because of a variety of mental illnesses.

According to the Clark County Prosecutor Jeremy Mull, Ralston began a four-month sexual relationship with the 14-year-old last August. The 14-year-old boy stayed at Childplace, a center that provides adoption, counseling and other treatment options for children in need. Ralston was a caretaker in the cottage where the boy stayed and is accused of having an inappropriate sexual relationship with him on multiple occasions between August 2012 and November 2012. Court records said Ralston admitted to about 10 instances of physical contact with the teen, including two that involved oral sex in a cottage bedroom. In addition to sex at the Jeffersonville counseling center woman and boy  also had sex in a Childplace Inc. van on numerous occasions.

Ralston told police she thought the boy was attractive and admitted to having romantic feelings for him. She also admitted to giving the teen $120 in exchange for a love letter she wrote him when he told her he was going to report her. But during a later police interview, Ralston changed her story, saying the teen forced her to have sex.

A school resource officer at Jeffersonville High School alerted police about the alleged relationship after talking with the victim. The boy asked the officer about laws pertaining to adults having sex with minors and when the officer probed further the teen told him about the alleged sexual relationship with an employee of Childplace, 27-year-old Megan Ralston.  The officer also said he saw the student with a large amount of money. The victim said it all ended with the employee giving him money in exchange for a letter she wrote him.

Ralston appeared in front of a judge for the first time on Wednesday answering to two charges of sexual misconduct. Ralston is due back in late July. Her trial is slated for October.

Police found the juvenile and Robinett and they admitted to being in the woods together. The boy told officers he and Robinett had sexual contact the past month.

When questioned, Robinett admitted to having sex with the boy on two occasions, the second time while in the woods while officers were searching for them.

Kathleen Cawthorne Sentenced for Sex with Student

Kathleen Cawthorne, 33-year-old former teacher at William Campbell High School, Rustburg, Virginia, accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student, was sentenced to a total of 11 years for one count of indecent liberties with a child and three counts of electronic solicitation of a minor but Campbell County Circuit Court Judge John T. Cook suspended the time to be served to four months.

Cawthorne will also be on supervised probation for three years and must register as a sex offender. Cawthorne’s probation officer had testified that Cawthorne was bipolar with facets of hypersexuality which is probably the reason her sentence went from 11 years to four months.

In February Cawthorne pleaded no contest to one count of taking indecent liberties with a minor and three counts of electronic solicitation of a minor.

She was arrested in April 2012 on charges are based on incidents deputies believe took place between March 7 and March 13 when Cawthorne was a teacher at William Campbell Combined School. The student asked Cawthorne for her phone number, and the two began texting each other. The texts were of a sexual nature. On March 13, 2012, the two met at a store in Campbell County and rode around together in the student’s car, and the two had sexual intercourse. Kathleen Cawthorne also sent photos of herself showing the “upper part of her body” to the student.

Another teacher was shown the photos on another student’s phone and went to the principal. When the principal confronted Cawthorne, she admitted that the photos were of her and that she had allowed the student to touch her in private areas, but denied having sexual intercourse with the student. Kathleen Cawthorne, married mother of three, was released from her position with the school in March after the allegations surfaced.

The indecent liberties statute incorporates sexual touching or exposure.

Mother Gets Prison For Raping 2-year-old Son

Emily E. Thompson, 26-year-old mother from Uhrichsville, Ohio,  will serve at least 10 years in prison for raping her then 2-year-old son in May 2011.

Thompson, of 317 S. Wardell St., pleaded guilty earlier this month to an amended Tuscarawas County grand jury indictment on charges of rape, child endangering and cruelty to animals. Judge Elizabeth Lehigh Thomakos ordered that she can’t have any contact with the boy, who resides with relatives.

Thomakos also classified Thompson as a Tier Three sex offender, which means that for the rest of her life she must register her address with the sheriff’s department of the county where she resides, if released from prison. Thomakos added that she considers the case to be especially serious because of the betrayal of trust by the mother.

In May 2011, Emily Thompson went to the Uhrichsville Police Department and she told officers that she had met a man who talked her into undressing herself and her son and engaging in sexual activity with the child. She also told police that five photos were taken and sent to his cellphone and email account and that another incident occurred where she again was coaxed into getting naked with the child and taking photos nude, but no child sex was involved that time. According to police, they initially thought she was a victim and being pressured into participation, but during the interviews they began to suspect Thompson after more more images of Thompson engaging in sex acts with her son surfaced. Her computers, cellphones and photo storage devices were forwarded to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

The incidents over a period from January to May 13, 2011, were investigated by Uhrichsville police and a county Children’s Services caseworker. She was indicted in September 2012, with the time needed for the testing and the schedules involved accounting for the lag time in the case, the prosecutor explained. During the investigation, a search warrant was obtained for the residence of the 25-year-old New Philadelphia man involved in the case.

The sentence for raping a child is life in prison. However, under the amended indictment, Thompson pleaded guilty to statutory rape. That mandatory sentence is 10 years to life in prison, with possibility of parole after 10 years.

Lori A. Layher,  37-year-old guidance counselor formerly at Bronaugh High School, Nevada, Missouri, accused of having sexual relations with students pleaded guilty last week after four counts were dropped and two others were reduced to misdemeanors.

Layher had been charged with single counts of statutory rape and statutory sodomy and four counts of sexual contact with a student by a school employee. The counts stemmed from alleged sexual contact with two boys under the age of 17 between Dec. 1, 2009, and March 31, 2010, both on and off school grounds.  A plea agreement reached by the prosecution and defense attorney Christopher Mirakian allowed Layher to plead guilty to the lesser charges rather than face an Aug. 26 trial.

Layer was arrested in November 2011 and has been free on bond since then. Charges against her included four counts of having sexual contact with a student on public school property, one count of second-degree statutory rape and one count of second-degree statutory sodomy. The rape and sodomy charges are Class C felonies and the sexual contact charge is a Class D felony. If she would have been Hconvicted of the more serious felonies, she could have faced a maximum 30 years in prison, a $20,00 fine or both prison and a fine.

Instead of prison, Judge James R. Bickel sentenced Lori Layher to a year in the county jail on each count -- the sentences to run concurrent -- then suspended the jail time and placed Layher on supervised probation for two years. She was also ordered to  surrender her teaching certification to the state and agree to never teach again.

Documents allege that sexual activity between Layher and two male students took place over a lengthy period of time and at several locations in Vernon County including Layher's home, Bushwhacker Lake and Layher's office at Bronaugh High School. One of the students told an investigator that Layher asked for his cellphone number in late 2009 and he received a text message asking him to meet her at Bushwhacker Lake. The rendezvous allegedly led to sex in a parking lot at the lake. He told the investigator that on another occasion she invited him over to her house and engaged in both oral and conventional sex with him. The same student alleged that she engaged in oral sex with him multiple times in her office at the high school. The other student claimed similar sexual trysts at the lake and at her home.

Notorious Stepmom Sex Scandal Case Defendant Sentenced to Probation

Michelle Almonte-DeJesus, 27-year-old woman from Grand Island, Nebraska, who pleaded no contest to sexual assault charge in March has been sentenced to no jail for engaging in sex with her 15-year-old stepson.

Almonte-DeJesus will have to register as a sex offender and will spend five years on probation. She was also ordered that she not have a cell phone and have limited access to the internet.

As a result of the plea deal made with prosecutors, charges of incest, child pornography and creating obscene material against Almonte-DeJesus were dropped. According to records, the boy, who was 15 when sexual relationship with his stepmother began and turned 16 in June 2012, reported three incidents of first-degree sexual assault, eight incidents of incest, three incidents of consenting to child pornography and two incidents of creating obscene material.

While Michelle Almonte-DeJesus could have gotten 50 years in prison, Judge William Wright said in court last week he opted not to give her jail-time saying the boy might have been the one to instigate the sex acts. When the prosecuting attorney questioned whether this was a double standard,  the judge told him the sentence is similar to one of his prior cases involving a man. Hall County's Deputy Attorney Jon Hendricks said this case involved a family member. "To me that was one of the most horrendous aspects of this was. She was supposed to be a mother-figure to him and taking care of him-raising him. And it's just a different dynamic. And to me it just appears she took advantage of this child."

Victims father Enrique Almonte-DeJesus Jr. says he suspected something illicit was going on with his wife and son after he thought he saw them kissing one day, so he came up with a plan to catch them red-handed. “One day prior, I went downstairs and I saw them kissing, sitting on the couch,” he said. “I had my doubts, and I acted as if I was going to work, and I returned and found them having sex in my home.” According to court documents,  the woman and the 15-year-old traded nude photos of each other via cell phone and began having sex in January of last year.

Britney Rosenfield Guilty of Sex with 13-year-old Boy

Britney Rosenfield, 25-year-old woman from Casper, Wyoming, who was arrested in November 2012 for sex with 13-year-old boy, and pleaded guilty to the charge of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor in February 2013 agreed to accept the state’s sentence cap of six to 14 years in prison.

Although the presentencing investigation writer had recommended probation for Rosenfield, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Stensaas said in hearing that he still believed the previously agreed-upon sentence was appropriate. Stensaas indicated that a double standard appeared to be in play because of Rosenfield’s gender.

“I have yet to see a recommendation like this where a male is the perpetrator,” he said. Stensaas additionally noted that the sexual intercourse had been occurring since the boy was 12.

District Judge David Park said he believed the six- to 14-year sentence was appropriate and agreed to uphold the recommendation. Rosenfield’s attorney, Jamie Woolsey, did not attempt renege on the plea agreement, but said her client was upset and wondered why she accepted the prescribed sentencing terms.

Rosenfield — who also goes by the last name Olsen — was originally charged with two counts of sexual abuse of a minor, one in the first degree, one in the second degree. The state agreed to drop the first-degree charge in exchange for her guilty plea on the second-degree charge. The maximum penalty for a conviction of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor is 20 years in prison. The maximum sentence is 50 years if the conviction is for a first-degree charge.

According to the affidavit, Britney Rosenfield said she had sex with the 13-year-old boy  between July and October of last year. The boy also confirmed the sexual encounters with the older woman. He said the incidents occurred in several rooms of Rosenfield’s house, including the living room, the defendant’s bedroom and the laundry room. Rosenfield reportedly also admitted to police she had performed sex acts with the teen boy about five or six times in her home. The first time the two had sexual contact was  July 5 2012 and the most recent time was Oct. 16 2012.

Amber Failla Gets Probation For Classroom Oral Sex Acts on Students

The notorious sex scandal case of Amber Failla, teacher who invated male students to her classroom where she performed oral sex on them one by one, seems finally to be concluded.

Failla, 37-year-old former math teacher at California City High School, California, who pleaded no contest last month to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse, was sentenced to three years' felony probation

Failla was arrested in July 2012 for an alleged sex acts with several students, entered a plea in April  to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse, and multiple counts of oral copulation and contacting a minor with the intent to commit a sexual offense were dismissed.

Failla was arrested after an investigation revealed that she had maintained ongoing sexual relationship with at least three students. Court documents included an allegation that Failla would send text messages to students one by one to come between class times to her classroom, where  she would orally pleasure the students.

The coach overheard a student in the locker room saying that Failla had given oral sex to one of his friends. The 17-year-old later admitted that it happened during a soccer game, in her math classroom. The 17-year-old also claimed they engage in sex acts in a car. The 16-year-old told police that one day Failla texted him to meet her in her classroom where she performed oral sex on him. One of the teens told to investigators that Failla grabbed his hand and put them on her breasts and said, “this is like candy to me.”

The teens claim that Failla would send them pictures of her breasts and sometimes pictures of her genitalia. California City police searched Failla’s home and reported they seized computers and cellphones.

Originally charged with eight felonies, prosecutors dismissed seven charges after Failla pleaded no contest to one charge of unlawful sexual intercourse on April 5. Police said the former California City High School math teacher engaged in sex acts with three students ranging in age from 14 to 17 years old.

Defense attorney Timothy Lemucchi said Failla is bipolar, and she was given a drug that has a side effect of making a person “hyperactively sexual.” Lemucchi said Failla was the recipient of poor medical treatment in that she wasn’t given a second drug to counteract those effects.

Failla was also sentenced to two days in jail with credit for two days already served, so she was spared any further time in jail but will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
