Laura LasekLaura Lasek, 27-year-old former teacher at Marysville High School, Yuba County, California, has been convicted of statutory rape and oral copulation with a 15-year-old boy on multiple occasions.

Lasek met the boy at a school that educates at-risk students, Thomas E. Mathews School, where she worked from October to December. According to court papers she engaged in sex acts with 15-year-old student multiple times during that period.

During an interview with a probation officer, Lasek gave an explanation for her actions. She said she had become overwhelmed and students were making inappropriate comments to her. She liked the victim and the two began texting, which evolved into a sexual relationship that she hid from her husband.
Her actions with the boy were discovered after a teacher’s aide overheard the victim talking about a sexual photo Lasek sent him. After she was confronted by school administrators and she admitted the relationship to her husband, she resigned from her teaching position, according to a probation department report.

Lasek, who was sentenced to serve 180 days in county jail and five years probation was also ordered to pay a $600 restitution fine, $1,140 sexual offender registration fine, $40 a month for probation, $370 for a probation report, a $43 booking fee, and $100 in additional court fees.

Lauren HillLauren Hill, 27-year-old former teacher at St. Joseph High School, St. Joseph, Michigan, has been sentenced to a minimum of 48 months in prison.

Hill pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct in May. Two counts of third-degree CSC were dismissed as part of the plea deal.

“The two charges to which she pled guilty involved using her position of authority to have sexual contact with a minor under the age of 16 years,” said Berrien County Prosecutor Michael Sepic in a press release.

The victim was said to be just 15 years old when the relationship began. “During this time, the victim was looking for a mentor. Her family was going through a difficult time, and Miss Hill was there for her. And Miss Hill crossed the line and turned the relationship mentor/ mentee, into that of a sexual nature,” said Berrien County Assistant Prosecutor Jacob Jenison. “This situation lasted from when the victim was going to be a sophomore in high school, all the way until the end of her senior year – for those reasons she could not complete her senior year with her classmates. It was supposed to be one of the best times of her life.”

“In most criminal cases, the victim’s loss can be made whole,” said Berrien County Judge Gary J. Bruce. “Stolen money can be replaced, injuries can heal, medical bills can be reimbursed, a broken window can be repaired. But the loss of the best four years of your life can never be gotten back.”

For her part, Hill fought off tears as she told the court she was sorry to cause so much “devastation.”

Hill said she had made decisions based on emotions and not common sense.

Hill was educated at Michigan State University where she played soccer. The judge called Hill’s support network of family and friends the strongest he had ever seen.

Hill’s defense attorney said his client was a bit “naïve” on the subject of punishment because she had never been in trouble before.

The victim was said to be in the courtroom, but did not speak at the sentencing hearing.

The judge encouraged Hill to continue her teaching career while behind bars, after learning she had worked as a volunteer for the Fresh Start program while in jail.

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.
