Alternative school teacher arrested on obscenity, child molestation

Amy Lee Cassada, 34-year-old teacher at the St. Marys Ombudsman School, Camden County, Georgia, has been charged with child molestation and electronically transmitting obscene material to a minor.


Police began investigating a report of alleged sexual activity between female teacher and a 15-year-old male student at the St. Marys Ombudsman School last month. Suspicious behavior happened between Casseda and the student after private tutoring sessions were arranged between them.

Police interviewed witnesses and seized several electronic devices as part of the investigation. In addition to text messages, teacher also transmitted a series of four pictures of herself to the student, one of which police said was obscene.

Police say a second person is in police custody in connection with the case.  19-year-old man was arrested for threatening the teen involved in this case a few days after the initial incident was reported. He was subsequently interviewed and confessed to the threat, and told officers he was also a former student of Cassada's and that over time he received sexual images from her as well.

Cassada was not only a teacher at St. Marys Ombudsman, she also works for a private company that contracts with the Camden County School district. The assistant Superintendent of Camden County schools said the company and the district have never had a problem with teachers before and are doing their own investigation into the situation. School system spokesman Arthur Van Blarcum said that Ombudsman has been successful in providing services for Camden County’s alternative school students placed there as a result of disciplinary or academic issues.


The St. Marys Police Department believes there are possibly other juveniles or students who were victimized by Cassada. Other victims are encouraged to contact detectives of the St. Marys Police Department, Criminal Investigation Division.

Former Teacher Allegedly Sexually Abused Multiple Students

Donna Harper, former special education teacher at Judson Middle School, Live Oak, Texas, is accused of sexually molesting four juveniles decades ago while they were students in the mid-1980s.

Donna Harper allegedly pursued a sexual relationship with the boys while they were in seventh and eighth grade. The notice of tort claims that “In addition to touching, groping and grooming, these students had sexual intercourse on numerous occasions with their teacher,” the notice reads. “Some sexual conduct occurred on a one-on-one situation, while other sexual conduct occurred with multiple children being present and having sex, while others watched or participated.” The sexual encounters happened at the school, at Harper’s home, at the South Salem Drive-In and at the Oregon Coast. Harper worked for the school district from September 1977 until December 1991, when she retired for medical reasons. She worked with kids who had physical, developmental and learning disabilities. The four men in these claims struggled with learning disabilities such as dyslexia.

Dan Gatti, the attorney representing the four men who accuse their former teacher, said it’s not unusual for victims to delay coming forward. He has represented several clients in sex-abuse cases against the Catholic Church and Portland’s Archdiocese. “I’ve had cases where people didn’t start connecting the dots until people were in their 70s,” Gatti said. “As a child you don’t have a clue that this is going to affect you. You are just filled with shame and anger.” Gatti is looking for additional victims. “If I’ve got four victims, I suspect she’s probably got many more,” Gatti said. “I would suspect there are other victims — assuming the district didn’t know and didn’t discover it.”

Paul Dakopolos, an attorney for the Salem-Keizer School District, confirmed that the district is investigating the accusations. He said time has made it difficult to track down possible witnesses. “The principal is deceased, and all of the other staff people are retired".

Female teacher Pleads Guilty to Sex Assault, Gets only 9 months of prison



Christina Powell, 40-year-old former special education teacher from Middletown, Connecticut, who pled guilty to a sexual relationship with one of her teen students last year was sentenced to nine months in prison.

Powell, of 24 Dobson Circle, was charged with second-degree sexual assault for allegedly having a sexual relationship with one of her students for about two years. The state has extended a plea deal offer to Powell, and Powell entered a guilty plea in March to second-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor and faced up to 18 months in prison.

Powell had earlier pleaded not guilty on Feb. 22 2012 through her attorney. Police were assigned to investigate a “possible improper relationship” between Powell and a student whom Powell had been teaching from eighth grade at Woodrow Wilson Middle School through 10th grade at Middletown High School, according to the warrant. The victim’s mother reported to police that she was concerned about the relationship between Powell and the victim after allegedly finding out that Powell pretended to be the victim’s mother and signed a juvenile summons for an incident where the victim was charged with shoplifting, according to the warrant. The victim’s mother told police that Powell “was very involved” with the victim since eighth grade. At the time, the mother appreciated the effort, according to the warrant. At one point mother found pair of Victoria Secret “Pink” brand V-string panties under her son matress with a Maloney High School class ring with name “Christine Doyle” carved inside it. Powell admitted to police that both items were hers.

The boy began babysitting her children in 2010. She would drive the boy and his friends around and signed them passes to be late for class.

In an interview with the police Christina Powell admitted that the relationship with the boy had turned sexual around April 2011, shortly after victims 16th birthday. Powell told that victim had tried to kiss her on mouth and she thought that he were joking, but when he did it again she kissed him back on the mouth, and that victim slipped her hands under her shirt and bra feeling her breasts. After that they “messed around” physically a couple of times before they had actual sex. Second time victim put his fingers in her vagina and “fingered her”. Shortly after those sex acts they began to have actual sex with full intercourse. According to interview, Powell told that she would pick up the teen boy about a once a week and drove him to her house to have sex with her in her bedroom. During the summer they had sex more often, usually several times a week. When the school started again, they were back having sex usually once a week. She also told that everything was consensual and that she never pressured or forced him to do anything. Powell said, according to an arrest warrant affidavit, "that their relationship was more than about sex. She said that they truly loved each other and that they had planned on moving out of state together after the victim turned 18."

The boy's mother told Judge David P. Gold that her son has changed for the worse since Powell sexually assaulted him. "She deserved to go to jail for what did to my son," the woman said. "I trusted her. I really trusted her. She ruined him and she ruined my relationship with him."

During the course of the preliminary investigation, Powell had admitted to police that she had sent the boy nude photos of herself via cell phone.

Powell must also register as a sex offender, will be on probation for 10 years can never again have any contact with the boy. The boy's mother has a lawsuit pending against Middletown schools. At least a year before police arrested Powell, other teachers and district paraprofessionals had significant concerns about Powell’s behavior with the student. Those concerns and suspicions were strong enough that one paraprofessional quit over what she felt was an inappropriate relationship between Powell and the boy, who at the time was in middle school, and another raised concerns about the situation, at least twice, with an administrator. When police began to investigate in November of last year, teachers and aides shared their concerns and suspicions. One told police that two summers ago she saw the boy hanging out at Powell’s home, swimming in her pool and that, wearing a bikini, Powell joined him. Others reported to police that they saw the boy hug Powell and smell her hair in the school. One said they overheard what appeared to be a spat between the two in the high school hallway.

Fort Atkinson Mother Allegedly Engaged in Group Sex with Teen Boys

Kayla Schneider, 24-year-old woman from  Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, is accused of having sexual intercourse with two allegedly intoxicated 16-year-old boys.

Schneider  faces multiple charges stemming from an underage drinking party she hosted at her apartment on May 25th, during which she is accused of having sex with two minors. She faces a total of six counts sex crime charges — including child enticement (two counts), exposing genitals or pubic area (two counts), and sexual intercourse with a child (two counts).

The 16-year-old boy boy told officials he was with Kayla Schneider in her bedroom, watching the “Life of Pi,” when they began making out, and that Schneider  undressed. The boy told officials they performed oral sex on each other and then he had intercourse with Schneider, according to the complaint. The complaint also states the boy told officials he did not wear a condom because Schneider told him she was “fixed.” The boy told officials that  When they were engaged in sex his friend, another 16-year-old boy, came into the room and Schneider asked his friend to join in. While one one of the teen boys was having sexual intercourse with the older woman she performed oral sex on the other boy.
The second boy noticed his friend and Schneider go into the bedroom and at first thought they were watching a movie, but then thought they might be having sex, as they were being loud. The boy opened the door to tell the two to quiet down, and noticed the two were having sex and he was asked to join in. The complaint indicates the three performed sex acts on one another while all three were in the bedroom.

Officials interviewed Schneider, who admitted there were juveniles drinking at her apartment on May 25th. However, the complaint says Schneider repeatedly denied having sex with the two boys — though she admitted having sex with the man and woman who had been in her bedroom that night, according to the complaint.
The complaint states that she told police that she had heard the following day that she might have had inappropriate contact with someone, but suggested that she would never have sexual intercourse with someone under 18 years of age. Schneider also reportedly admitted to be completely naked in her bed, but denied the two juveniles came into her room while she was naked.

The father of Kayla Schneider's children commented the case to media. “Honestly, personally I’m disgusted. I can’t believe that’s the mother of my children who did this. Not only did she destroy her own life, she ruined her children’s lives now, you know. Even if she were to get out of jail, she’s a registered sex offender after being convicted and won’t be able to be around her own children, you know. That’s the saddest part of it all”.

Kayla Schneider is facing a total of 58 1/2 years in prison and fines of more than $240,000 if convicted of the charges combined. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday, June 7, before Judge Randy Koschnick.

Christina Preston Gets 25 Years in Prison for Child Sex Crimes

Christina Preston, 45-year-old former teacher at Veterans Memorial Middle School,Columbus, Georgia, who was accused of moths long sexual relationship with a 13-year-old male student was sentenced to at least 25 years in prison after being found guilty of sex crime charges.

A Georgia jury found a former special education teacher guilty on multiple charges based on a months-long affair she had with a student. Preston was convicted of aggravated child molestation, child molestation, statutory rape and sexual assault on a person in custody. She was sentenced to life in prison with 25 years to serve before she is eligible for parole. When she is released, Preston will spend the rest of her life on probation and have to register as a sex offender. Superior Court Judge John Allen also barred her from having contact with any minors other than her own children and having any contact with the victim, who is now 15.

The victim of Christina Preston testified earlier this week about the sexual relationship that began after Mrs Preston initiated it on Halloween 2011, when the victim was 13 and went on for months until Preston was arrested in February after investigators caught her in car with a 14-year-old boy. Preston initially faced two counts of child molestation and one count each of enticing a child for indecent purposes and sexual assault against persons in custody, records state. Police found female techer in company of a young boy in a car about 12:30 a.m. Jan. 29, 2012 at Cooper Creek Park, 4816 Milgen Road.

A former seventh-grader testified this week about the incidents during the night deputies caught him and his special-education teacher in her car in Columbus’ Cooper Creek Park. Teen boy who is now 15-year-old, told prosecutor Don Kelly that he and Mrs. Preston had spent the afternoon riding four-wheelers along a power easement off Hancock Road. Later they washed the vehicles off, joined a family celebration at the teacher’s house, left together to buy food and then went to the park in Preston’s vehicle, a Ford Expedition. Preston parked in an unlighted spot on the park’s northeast corner, where they ate before she asked him to get in the back seat with her. She pulled off the boy's pants, fondled him and performed oral sex, and then they had intercourse, the victim told. After having sex their were sitting in the front seat about 12:30 a.m. when sheriff’s deputies checking the park shined a spotlight on the Expedition, and stopped to ask why they were in a park that closed hours ago. Preston told deputies that the 14-year-old boy was her daughter’s boyfriend, and they had stopped to eat and she was driving him home after a day of four-wheeling. She also told them that the boy's parents were aware of this this, and it was common practice. But the teenager was unable to give deputies a telephone number or address for his parents, explaining they had just moved. That made them suspicious. The boy’s story changed when a deputy visited the teen’s parents the next day. The boy would not make eye contact and was fidgeting nervously. Then he began to cry, and would answer no more questions. Then the boy said he and his teacher had sex in the park.

In court this week the young boy testified that the sex acts with his teacher in park was not the only time. He listed sexual encounters that included one at Muscogee’s Veterans Memorial Middle School, where Preston was among his teachers.

The sexual encounters had started Halloween 2011, when he had helped hand out candy at what was then Preston’s Springridge Drive home. She was to drive him back to his home off Moon Road, but instead stopped elsewhere in his neighborhood. “She started touching on me,” he said, adding that she fondled his genitals asking if he ever had had sex and if he liked what she was doing to him. Preston also told the boy that she liked him a lot, "a lot more than she was supposed". After fondling the boy for some time she finally took him home. Some time later they had a similar encounter at school in what at the time was a windowless conference room adjacent to the school’s library . There she kissed him and again fondled his genitals. “She used her tongue,” he said of the kissing.

He said occasions they had full sexual intercourse included:

• Once in her Springridge Drive home, in bedroom.

• Once when they were riding four-wheelers off Hancock Road, where she disrobed but he did not, and they had sex on the ground.

• Once on “hunting land” belonging to her husband’s family in Marion County, where they went to ride four-wheelers before having sex in a deer stand.

Preston’s estranged husband described the deer stand during his testimony, saying he and his wife had built it just for her. It was 4 by 8 feet long, and they named it “Cristie’s Condo,” he said. Husband had been working for the sheriff’s office from 1987 through 1998, and still had friends there. One told him about the Cooper Creek Park report later that same day, he said. Having heard nothing about that from his wife, he went home, packed his belongings and moved out. He filed for divorce Feb. 1, 2012.

Ohio Woman Gets Prison for Underage Sex

Nichole R. Metzler, 37-year-old woman from Kent, Ohio, has been sentenced by a Portage County judge to 16 months in prison after pleading guilty in March to a felony count of gross sexual imposition.

The child, who was 15 at the time, was under her care. Metzler pleaded guilty to having sexual contact with the male juvenile family member. Portage County Common Pleas Judge Laurie Pittman also fined her $350, credited her with four days already served in the Portage County jail and ordered her to have no contact with the victim. Pittman also labeled Metzler a Tier I sex offender, who must register with her local sheriff's office once a year for 15 years upon her release from prison.

Prior to Pittman imposing the sentence, defense attorneys Troy Reeves and Steve Smith told Pittman it was unlikely Metzler would re-offend if allowed to serve a term on probation. Metzler "took full responsibility" for her crimes, had never been in trouble before and "did not cause any physical harm to the victim," Reeves told Pittman. "Maybe you didn't physically hurt him, but emotionally and mentally, you tore him apart," Pittman said.
"You admit you had sex with him?" Pittman asked. Metzler said that she had, but could not recall how many times. "Once I got caught in that situation, I didn't know how to get out."

The victim, who is now 21, told Pittman he had waited for this day. "I'm tired of living in shame and regret," he said. "I struggled emotionally and mentally. I've always been made out to be a liar. It made me feel alone. I knew others saw and knew Nichole was guilty." Others also suffered "while Nichole sat back and played innocent," the victim said. "I just want her to suffer the way I have, her husband and son have. I want everyone to look at her and know what she has done." After imposing the prison sentence, and before Metzler was led away in handcuffs, Pittman told the victim that "now, people have to believe you."
