Carrie-Staples-Williams
Carrie Staples Williams, former English teacher at Franklin County High School, Frankfort, Kentucky, has pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree unlawful transaction with a 17-year-old male student.

According to assistant Commonwealth Attorney Zach Becker, in 2006 and 2007, a 17-year-old Franklin County High School senior had an inappropriate relationship with Williams. The sexual relationship between teacher and student took place between September 2006 and January 2007, when the teacher was 23-years-old. After graduation, Becker says the teen confided in the superintendent at the time, Harrie Beucker. Becker claims the case sat dormant, and never reached law enforcement until the victim passed away and his mother found paper copies of emails between Williams and her son. Investigators say the student’s mother helped them crack the case.
Because of a one-year statute of limitations, Becker says he wasn’t able to go after Beucker or the school district for failing to report the case. Monday afternoon, Williams pleaded guilty, in front of the victim’s mother, to two counts of unlawful transaction with a minor.

Paige Mostella - teacher accused of sex with student

Paige Mostella – teacher accused of sex with student

Paige E. Mostella (aka Paige Groves), 29-year-old teacher formerly at Woodlan High School, Fort Wayne, Indiana, has been accused of engaging in sex with a 17-year-old student.

Mostella faces two Class D-felony counts of child seduction.
In the affidavit for probable cause, police began their investigation on February 12, 2014 when a 19-year-old taking a polygraph test required to fulfill juvenile probation requirements told a police officer giving the test that he had been involved in a sexual relationship with a teacher at Woodlan Jr/Sr.High School in early 2013.
The teen told the officer that he and Mostella would frequently “play fight” and that during one of these encounters he became aroused and Mostella allowed him to rub up against her for several minutes. During this first encounter, the teen told the officer that Mostella didn’t say anything.
The second alleged encounter did involve sexual intercourse and again took place in her office. A third encounter as described in the court document took place two days before a track meet and the teen asked Mostella if he could have sex with her because “it would improve his throwing ability during the track meet.” The teen told police that he put a jacket over the office door window so no one could see inside during these sexual encounters between female teacher and male student. The teen also told police that all of the encounters took place in Mostella’s office and she was aware of his age..
When the teen turned 18, he claims Mostella bought him gifts that included jeans, shoes and an entire outfit. He told police that Mostela told him she could still lose her job by being with him and that the relationship was wrong, however the two would talk on the phone when her husband was at work. The teen maintained that the relationship continued until the fall of 2014.

Under Indiana law, a teen can consent to sex when they are 16 or older. However, it is a felony if a person in a position of authority over the teen, such as a teacher or a military recruiter or a step-parent, engages in sexual activity with the teen if he or she is 16 to 18 years old.

Indiana’s Department of Education lists Mostella as a current teacher within the EastAllenCountySchool District. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of St. Francis and is licensed to teach language arts, according to the state’s website.
East Allen County Schools officials said they have cooperated fully with the investigation and said Mostella is no longer employed with the district.

cynthia herr - teacher sexCynthia Lynn Herr, 36-year-old former teacher at J.D. Floyd K-8 School in Spring Hill, Brooksville, Florida, accused last year of having sexual activity with a 16-year-old boy, has received a six-year prison sentence in exchange for a guilty plea.

Florida teacher Cynthia Herr guilty of sex with teen boy

Herr has to serve nine years of sexual offender probation. The family of the victim approved of the deal. If Herr had been convicted on all of the charges, she could have faced up to 45 years in prison.

the victim was an acquaintance of Herr’s daughter and was not a student at J.D. Floyd K-8 School in Spring Hill, where Herr was a prekindergarten exceptional student education teacher.
Cynthia Herr was first arrested Sept. 23 in Hernando County on charges of unlawful sexual activity with a minor. She was arrested again at her Citrus County home the next day on a similar charge in that county. Last month, the cases were combined, with approval from Citrus County Circuit Judge Ric Howard.
Authorities investigating the case said Citrus County deputies first heard allegations in early September that Herr was having inappropriate contact with the teen. Deputies contacted the victim, who, after initially denying any sexual activity, allowed authorities to view his text messages and Facebook account. Deputies observed numerous messages of a sexual nature, several seemingly referencing sexual activity between the pair.
In another interview with authorities, the teen admitted that the two engaged in at least two different sexual acts at a Weeki Wachee hotel on Aug. 24. He also told investigators of other intimate encounters in Herr’s van in Pasco and Marion counties.
According to an arrest report, Herr told investigators she knew that what she did was wrong and that she probably would lose her family and job and go to jail. She also said she would be in trouble if authorities were to access her phone and Facebook account.Source:
