BLOG POST #177: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving a 15-year-old high school student and her 50-year-old teacher.
It was her first year in public school. She’d been home-schooled through eighth grade.
He’d been with the high school for six years, teaching health sciences.
She’d been a student in his forensics class when another student said they’d witnessed the student and teacher kiss in his classroom. The accusation was unsubstantiated but the rumors were rampant and triggered the following events.
Crossing The Line
The morning the teacher disappeared with his student he’d left a note for his wife. He said he needed to get away and ‘clear his head.’ He took with him $4,500 and two prescription refills of an erectile dysfunction medication.
