Relationships can be a beautiful thing when both partners are of age. But here’s the thing, there is a dark underbelly of some relationships even though they are claimed to be consensual. Leave it up to grade school teachers to put a major rift in the whole dating game with their under age escapades with their own students. To think that parents actually trust the well being of their children to these women too! It’s pretty appalling when someone who should be looking out for the best interest of your kid is actually committing one of the worst crimes against them.
Additionally, it's pretty vile that there are so many women that commit these crimes on the regular. It’s not like this is such a rare occasion, which is just plainly awful! Sadly, not all of these women are even brought to justice either, which means that they are still out in society potentially still committing the same crimes! Who are the women you should be keeping your eye on? We complied a list of some of the worst offenders when it comes to sleeping with their students so you know exactly who you should keep your kids away from.
15 Heather Daughdrill: The "Bible Thumper"
Sometimes, you just have to shake your head at the decisions people make and this is definitely one of those times. 28-year-old Heather Daughdrill was arrested for having sensual relations with a 13-year-old student! The relationship started after she met him at a summer Bible camp of all things, too. Talk about thumping that Bible, huh? The question is, who at her age is attracted to a 13-year-old to begin with? Nobody in their darn right minds.
After lewd text messages were exposed, the authorities found out that Daughdrill would pick the child up from school without his parent’s knowledge and engage in intimate behavior with him. Say what? Daughdrill now faces charges including sexual battery, carnal knowledge of a juvenile, kidnapping, indecent behavior with a juvenile, and contributing to delinquency. Dear lord! Talk about a laundry list of charges. We hope she will truly find Jesus, and NOT at a child's summer camp.
14 Debra Lafave: The One Who Got Away With It
Boy, oh boy did Debra Lafave catch a break. Although, I don’t think I’d want my kids entering into her classroom any time soon. This Florida teacher was charged with two felonies after having intercourse and oral fun with one of her 14-year-old (ew) students. Okay, it’s one thing to sleep with an 18-year-old, but 14? Come on, Debra, that’s just disgusting.
However, Lafave didn’t serve any jail time because the victim’s mother didn’t want him going through the emotional trauma of the trial. I guess that’s understandable, but wouldn’t you want justice for your son, too? Again, the kid is 14 in case you didn’t catch it the first two times. The real kicker? Lafave is now married and is the mother of twins. Seems wrong doesn’t it?
13 Carrie McCandless: The Overnight School-Trip Offender
She is the former cheerleading coach of Brighton Charter High School, and man did her life take a turn for the worst because of a stupid decision. What was the stupid decision? Well, McCandless decided to sleep with a 17-year-old student during a sleepover school camping trip. Wow, and she honestly thought she wouldn’t get caught on this one, huh? What a dope.
To make matters worse, McCandless also provided the kids with alcohol and “did everything except intercourse” with a male student while another male student slept nearby. What was her jail time you ask? A whole 45 days. Apparently, you can be a sexual offender and only get a month and half behind bars, sadly. Doesn’t seem like much of a punishment in the grand scope of things.
12 Lindsay Massaro: The Consensual Claimer
Are you noticing some boneheaded trends yet? Well, here’s another one to add to the list as 26-year-old Sussex County Elementary School teacher, Lindsay Massaro was accused of having not-so-PG relations with a 15-year-old student in both her bedroom and car. I know what you are thinking; she cannot be serious, right? Well, turns out it’s the truth.
The best part? The student’s father learned about the sexual escapades and reported it to the authorities himself! The teacher claims the relationship was consensual although the victim was vastly under age. She now faces parole supervision for life and a badly bruised ego on top of it. I guess that’s what you get when you think you are above the law. Not a good plan. Not a good plan, indeed.
11 Pamela Rogers-Turner: The Under-Under Age Offender
Here’s a woman that, once again, is into the 13-year-olds. I’m sorry, but there has to be a special place in jail for these types of people. It just isn’t normal behavior. Elementary school teacher, Pamela Rogers-Turner pled guilty to an on going sexual relationship with her 13-year-old student. Can we, once again, mention how disgusting this is in every possible way?
In August of 2005, she pled guilty and was sentenced to nine months in prison due to her eight year suspended sentence for statutory r*pe. Here’s the thing, Rogers-Turner didn’t just call it quits from the underage conduct game, she was actually arrested for doing it again and was sentenced to serve seven years in a state prison. She also admitted to sending nude photos and risqué videos of herself, too. Yikes.
10 Eppie Sprung Dawson: The IDAGF Teacher
I guess some people just don’t care when they do the wrong thing, and that was definitely the case with Eppie Sprung Dawson’s scenario for sure. This former St. Joseph’s College teacher really blew it after she changed her relationship status on Facebook from “single” to “in a relationship” with the student she was hanging out with behind closed doors. Why Eppie? Oh, dear god, why?!
Sprung Dawson then lost her job at St. Joseph’s College after she was caught in a car on the side of the road with her underage lover in 2012. Oh come on! It just goes to show you that people are definitely watching what you put on social media, and it could cost you your reputation and your career, too. Wouldn’t you say so, Eppie?
9 Kinsley Wentzky: The Honors Student Gone Rogue
What a shame. Kinsley Wentzky started out her life with a bright future, as she was an Honors English teacher at Dreher High School in Columbia, South Carolina. Well, she ruined all of that after she was caught having R-rated relations with two of her 17-year-old students. It just doesn’t make sense to mess up your entire career that you worked so hard to achieve for a little action with a student, doesn’t it?
Wentzky was initially sentenced to five years in prison, but the sentence ended up getting suspended and reduced to only probation. What the heck was this court thinking? You have a proven sex offender in custody, and you are just going to release her back into the public? Seems a little bit crazy to me.
8 Amy Northcutt: The Double Timer
She was a Christian school teacher that seemingly innocently went about her day spreading the word and teaching her classes (NOT!). The awesome thing about Amy Northcutt sending lewd text messages to a 16-year-old is that her husband, also a Christian school teacher, was in on the whole thing! Holier than thou, I think NOT, that’s for sure.
The pair was trying to arrange a group situation with this student, and a relative noticed the disturbing text messages about the said event. Northcutt and her husband both entered no contest pleas to the felony charge of harmful matter sent with the intent of seduction of a minor. I guess you could say this pair was meant for each other with their twisted and disgusting ways. Gross. Seriously vomit in your mouth worthy.
7 Sarah Jones: The Relationship That Actually Worked Out
She is a former Bengals cheerleader and pretty much a male teenager’s dream come true when they got admitted into her class because of her looks. Needless to say she started hooking up with one of her 17-year-old students while she was on the job. Not the smartest idea if you want to keep your job and stay out of jail, but what do I know?
She ended up pleading guilty to felony custodial interference and misdemeanor for sexual conduct for having intimate relations with one of her students and even went as far as agreeing to never teach again. Yikes. Since the whole ordeal, she has divorced her husband and is now engaged to the student that caused her career downfall to begin with. Talk about insane! Rumor has it she might even be getting her own TV show too.
6 Brianna Altice: The Multiple Offender
Well, Brianne Altice was a teacher at Davis High School in Utah before she threw her career away because she slept with her students. In 2013, she was arrested for having intimate relations with one of her 16-year-old students. After the charges were filed, yet another student came forward with the same story about intimate relations with his teacher. But here’s where things really got bad; yet another student came forward after the previous charges were filed.
You’d think she would have learned her lesson but no. Instead, she got out on bail and continued sleeping with a fourth student after all was said and done. Nowadays, she is facing 10 felony charges and could even face life in prison if she’s convicted. Not the best way to learn a lesson, but you have to say that Altice really asked for it.
5 Hope Jacoby: More Than A Mere Physical Trainer
Hope Jacoby put the “physical” in physical trainer that is for sure. This 23-year-old physical trainer at Tustin High School was arrested on the last day of school for having n intimate relationship with one of her students allegedly between 14 and 17 years old. The affair was even confirmed by a picture on the student’s cell phone. Did things just get uncomfortable or is it just me?
Jacoby was tried on oral copulation and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor but was released on bail. Seems kind of unfair, since she’s free to just do the whole thing again but who knows. To me, I just don’t understand why you would want to document your wrong doings via photograph, but clearly something is very off with this young woman.
4 Amy McElhenney: Barely Acknowledged Age Limits
Things get a little hairy with this case because there is a very gray area presented here. This former Miss Texas contestant and Spanish teacher was accused of having sensual relations with one of her 18-year-old students. Although the student was technically of legal age of consent, she still was tried based on the Texas state law that teachers are forbidden from sleeping with their students.
Although McElhenney didn’t face any jail time, she definitely still learned her lesson as she lost her teaching credentials. What a stupid thing to do. Lose your career because she just couldn’t keep her clothes on. What is up with these teachers thinking that just because their student is 18 that they are in the clear anyway? Not so much the case, as McElhenny found out.
3 Jessica Bonnett Acker: The Unfaithful Lover
Woah, boy does this story take some twists. Jessica Bonnett Acker was a 23-year-old teacher with her life ahead of her. Well, that’s before she started having intimate relations with her 19-year-old student. The teacher of Bryant High School in Cottondale, Alabama found out the hard way that although her student was of age, it is highly illegal to be engaging in this manner with a student according to Alabama state law.
Here’s the real kicker, Bonnett Acker started engaging with her student only mere months after tying the knot with her husband. Talk about messed up. How could you be that unhappy in your marriage that quickly? She was eventually placed in Tuscaloosa County Jail and was forced to resign from teaching. Sounds like justice was served if you ask me!
2 Rebekah Todd: The Booze Hound
What the heck are these teachers thinking when they are boozing it up with under age students? Well, Rebekah Todd did just that as she attended a high school graduation party with a ton of booze included. Not only did she get busted for some heavy drinking with under aged kids, but there was also a video that surfaced of Todd giving the students a striptease, too.
To top things off, she was also revealed to be sleeping with a 17-year-old student. Where did she do it, you ask? At his place of employment of all locations! Police also found text messages of Todd saying how great the student looked without his shirt on too. Do these women just not think before they do these things or what? Ridiculous.
1 Deanna Higgins: The Lover That Left A Trail
It’s another one of those face-palm worthy moments, as this 27-year-old science teacher decided to leave a trail behind after she did the deed with her 16-year-old victim. Deanna Higgins decided it was a great idea to leave behind a pair of her underwear in the teenager’s truck as a remembrance of the night for him. Oh come on now, and you really thought you weren’t going to get caught for this? What the heck was running through her dumb brain?
The person to reveal the relationship between teacher and student was Higgin’s husband, as he found some naughty text messages between the two on her phone. You just have to wonder what she was thinking by leaving such a stupid trail back to her after breaking the law so terribly. It can’t be the inner workings of a sane person. It just can’t be.
