There are a growing number of rapes, cases of pedophilia and use of child pornography by American educators. Here are a few examples in the news recently:
Christopher DeZutter, a chemistry professor at the University of Minnesota, was arrested, 5 February 2015, and charged with ten possession and one distribution child pornography counts. His next court date is 5 May 2015 and he remains free on conditional release that did not include monetary surety.
DeZutter told investigators he had been trading in child sex abuse images/videos since 1996. Examination of DeZutter’s electronics is still ongoing; however, investigators confirm his University of Minnesota laptop was “full” of child sex abuse files. Investigators said DeZutter told them, upon his arrest, “You are not going find a lot of this at home. I do most of this at the office.”
The university barred DeZutter from campus and temporarily relieved him of his teaching duties.
NEW YORK (Reuters) – A “Saturday Night Live” skit about a male student having sex with his female high school teacher painted the relationship as every teen boy’s dream, but drew a firestorm of criticism on social media.
The reaction to the comedy sketch reflected a growing view among law enforcement and victims’ advocacy groups that it is no laughing matter when a woman educator preys on her male students.
In U.S. schools last year, almost 800 school employees were prosecuted for sexual assault, nearly a third of them women. The proportion of women facing charges seems to be higher than in years past, when female teachers often got a pass, said Terry Abbott, a former chief of staff at the U.S. Department of Education, who tracked the cases.
This year’s numbers are already slightly ahead of last year with 26 cases of female school employees accused of inappropriate relationships with male students in January compared to 19 cases the previous January.
Student reveals how ‘sex-crazed’ cross-dressing high school teacher at Bill de Blasio’s son’s high school ‘flashed her, made her go to nude beaches and took her to sex clubs’
A high school student has revealed how a ‘sex-crazed’ cross-dressing teacher allegedly took her to nude beaches, sex clubs and luxury hotels during a relationship where he would routinely exploit her.
The girl, described only as V.V, said Brooklyn Tech faculty member Sean Shaynak flashed her as they walked to the subway after school and ‘plied her with alcohol’ during a visit to New York’s sex museum.
The youngster, who was 18 at the time of the alleged assaults, also said she was forced to ‘pray for her life’ as she hid in the bushes during a terrifying date with the 44-year-old, who was dressed in drag and screaming ‘b****’ as he looked for her.
During their relationship the father-of-one also took V.V. to a nude section of Jones Beach on Long Island, multiple ‘rave clubs,’ and X-rated venues where the girl would allegedly watch him ‘perform and receive (sex acts) with other males.’
A lawsuit seen by the New York Post accused Shaynak of exploiting the girl for his own ‘sexual gratification’ in a relationship that began when they met at an after-school Aerospace Club.
From coaches sleeping with athletes to substitutes sexting with 15-year-olds: Alabama tops list of states with highest rate of teachers busted for sex with students …an average of two a MONTH
Parents in Alabama have cause for concern, after the release of a new report which shows more teachers are arrested in their state for having sex with students than anywhere else in the nation.
The report was compiled by Terry Abbott, a former chief of staff of the U.S. Department of Education, who spent all of 2014 recording each news report of teacher sex cases in every state – finding 25 in Alabama.
He says that while his report is not scientific, since it draws only on media reports, it shows trends in what is becoming an alarmingly wide-spread issue.
Texas warns of dangerous rise in student-teacher relationships after reports of sexual misconduct increase by almost 30 percent
A San Antonio French teacher caught straddling a 15-year-old in her car. A Donna school security guard suspended for sending inappropriate texts to female students. A Waco band director who had sex with a high school girl in his music room.
These are just three of the 74 cases of inappropriate sexual relations between educators and students that have been opened since September.
The Texas Education Agency reported that, in the last three school years, there has been a 27 per cent increase in the number of student-teacher relationship investigations in the state.
San Antonio teacher Marcus Revila was given 17 years in prison for producing child pornography with a 16-year-old student who he got pregnant. Lisa Zuniga avoided a long prison sentence because she was pregnant with the child of a 13-year-old student she had sexual relations with.
There were 179 investigations during the 2013-14 school year, compared to 141 probes in the 2009-10 period, according to the Houston Chronicle.
The surge of cases in Texas corresponds to a national rise. There were 781 reported alleged cases of sexual relationships between students and school employees, according to the Washington Post
This is both alarming and calls for further investigation. Many times these professors and teachers are protected by their unions. States need to take action to allow pedophiles in the classroom are prosecuted and dismissed immediately.
