Melissa Lindgren, 28, was placed on “administrative leave” after she was charged with having sexual contact with three boys between the ages of 13-15 this week in Fullerton, California.
As reported at the LA Times, the math teacher “is accused of sexually touching and kissing one boy while in a classroom, a second boy on the school campus and a third student in her car.”
She also sent sexually suggestive text messages to all three students.
As reported at Liberty Unyielding, the astonishing amount of teachers having sexual contact with their students is nothing less then an epidemic.
One of the few journalists actively reporting on this ongoing trend is Steve Gunn of EAG News, who reported earlier in February that every single day,
“…there are at least three or four new reports of teachers being arrested or sentenced for having sexual relations with students.”
Oftentimes, the teachers engaging in the criminal activity are given shockingly light sentences, and many others never see the inside of a jail cell.
A list posted at Tavern Keepers highlights the shocking number of teachers being sentenced or charged with inappropriate sexual activity last week alone.
It is time that people become aware of this very real epidemic.
