Phillip Beeson - Touchy, Grabby Teacher Arrested After Allegedly Fondling Two Teen Girls. Does Anyone Else Hear An Echo?


Charges Have Been Dismissed. Both charges of assault on a female student were dismissed after the victim's through their attorney Michael Mills requested that sub poenas in the case be quashed. One girl's parents testified that neither family wished to talk to police or the press. Both parents allegedly stated that they did not think Beeson assaulted their daughters.

Original Report:

New Bern, NC (The Weekly Vice) -- Phillip Samuel Beeson, a 53 year old social studies teacher and girls basketball coach at New Bern High School in North Carolina has been arrested on two counts of assault on a female.

According to police, Beeson has been accused of inappropriately touching the chests of two teenaged female students.

Police said they were notified by officials at the Craven County School District in February about allegations of inappropriate behavior by Beeson that involved two students at New Bern High School. The alleged incidents are said to have happened in September and October 2007.

This was not the first instance where Beeson has found himself mired in a sex scandal.

Beeson resigned employment at another school, East Forsyth High School, after an incident that occurred in 1998 involving 6 teachers.

Douglas Shields, another teacher at that school, videotaped himself having sex with two female students. Shields then showed the video to others.

Although Beeson was not charged, investigators say he knew about Shields' alleged conduct and failed to report it.

Police arrested Beeson and booked him into the Craven County Jail. He was later released on a $5,000 bond. He has also been suspended with pay from the school pending the outcome of the charges.

Nicole Van Neil - Mama Dope Head Passes The Bong To Baby. Arrested For DUI Again And Again And Again

Lutz, FL (The Weekly Vice) -- Nicole Marie Van Neil, a 22 year old Florida woman who is 8 months pregnant has been arrested for DUI again. And again. And again. And Again.

Hillsborough County Deputies noticed Van Neil's car swerving across the yellow line while driving her vehicle on April 17th. When they pulled the vehicle over, they found 8 month pregnant Van Neil and a strong odor of marijuana.

Police also found marijuana stored in a pill bottle and a marijuana pipe hidden under the driver's seat. They also found additional drug paraphernalia stored in the vehicle's center console.

Police charged Van Neil with DUI, marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

As if that wasn't enough of a train wreck, authorities soon learned that this isn't the first go around for Nicole Van Neil. This isn't the second time and it's not the third time.

Despite being a little more than a year over the legal drinking age, Van Neil has been arrested and charged with DUI on three previous occasions.

Van Neil's previous arrests occurred in February of 2004, April of 2005 and May of 2005. Interestingly enough, these three arrests occurred before Van Neil was even of legal drinking age.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Does anyone really believe that this was the first instance Van Neil smoked up heavy and hard during her pregnancy? Not likely. With an ample stock of fresh bud, rolling papers and a roller paper machine, Van Neil is all set to ensure her child pops out as drug addicted as possible.

Will family services keep an eye on this revolving train wreck? Considering Florida makes up nearly half of all child abuse/neglect cases in the country - it's not likely unfortunately.

Let's just hope her hopelessly addicted baby doesn't have the same droop eye that mama dope seems to have. That would be two strikes against him/her.

Jeez.... could someone just smack her upside the head ONCE for us?

Mary Fasnacht - Her Parenting Skills Stink, Literally!

Fort Pierce, FL (The Weekly Vice) -- Mary E. Fasnacht, a 19 year old Florida woman was arrested and charged with child neglect after police found her 1 year old baby living in a filthy house that was cluttered with trash and spoiling food.

On an anonymous tip that reported that a child was living in filthy conditions, police officers and child welfare workers were dispatched to the home of Mary Fasnacht. When they arrived, they found a home that was "Not fit for human residence," according to the arresting affidavit.

Police characterized the two bedroom house as a place where "no child could remain healthy," noting that there was no running water and the home smelled of human waste.

"By the level of filth and smell coming from the home, it appeared from outside of the home, to be a dangerous environment for humans to reside in," stated the police affidavit.

Authorities also noted in the report that every room in the house was filthy, cluttered with garbage, dirty diapers, decaying food and other various items.

The report went on to state "The toilet bowl was filled with human feces and female hygiene products and was in reach of the child. There were dried/evaporated stains in the living room that were still moist and sticky and attracted dirt to make a filth paste."

In the center of it all, they found a 1 year old boy in a crib out in the living room who was taken into protective custody.

Fasnacht was arrested and booked into the St. Lucie County Jail. She was ordered held on a $2,500 bond.

Susan Lefevre – The Story Of A Truly Desperate Housewife. Wife And Mother Lived A Double Life After Being A Fugitive Of Justice For 32 Years

San Diego, CA (The Weekly Vice) -- Susan Lefevre is a typical 53 year old mother and wife. There's just one minor detail about Lefevre that is not so typical. She has been running from the law after escaping prison 32 years ago.

Now, Lefevre's past has finally caught up to her. Responding to an anonymous tip, the absconding mother and wife was outed and arrested after years of living a double life.

Lefevre was arrested on drug charges in the early 70's. Growing up in Michigan, Lefevre says she fell into the wrong crowd when she was 19 years old. "There were just all these different drugs. [I] experimented and got involved in the wrong crowd," says Lafevre.

Lefevre was later convicted on drug charges and sentenced to 10 - 20 years in prison. Lafevre said that she expected to get probation. "So it was a couple hundred dollars worth of drugs a transaction that my friend did, and I was just there in the car."

She decided to 'mitigate' her own sentence and escaped by climbing over the fence and flee from the Robert Scott Correctional facility in Detroit about a year into her sentence. "My grandfather was waiting a few blocks away. I thought they were going to shoot me, but I didn't care, I just needed to get out there, it was a very wrong thing to do," said Lefevre.

After her escape, Lefevre changed her name to Marie Day and moved to California. She got married, changed her name to Marie Walsh and raised three kids with her husband Alan in an affluent neighborhood. When confronted with her real identity, Lefevre admitted who she was but told police her family had no idea she was a fugitive.

According to the U.S. Marshals Service, police became aware of Lefevre's whereabouts on a tip that she was living in California under the name Marie Walsh. Authorities were able to verify Lefevre's identity by matching her thumb print records with that on her Marie Walsh driver's license.

Lefevre was arrested and booked into the Las Colinas Women's Detention Center while awaiting extradition back to Michigan where she will serve out the remainder of her sentence.

"I've been through 30 years of paying off a debt," Lefevre says. "I hope that there is some consideration that I did turn my life around, that's a very good way of putting it."

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

This story is upsetting on a few accounts.

First, it highlights a serious inconsistency in our laws for establishing sentencing guidelines that fit the crime. A 19 year old girl is caught up in the wrong crowd and gets sentenced to up to 20 years in prison. Alternatively, we have teachers raping kids who either serve a matter of months in jail, or no jail time at all.

While we agree, the woman should have had some kind of consequence for her actions, is society going to get a return on its investment in this case? She'll go from being a contributing, taxpaying citizen to becoming a tax burden that taxpayers will support until the woman becomes an immobile 70 year old. At that point she will be qualified for government retirement benefits. Basically this woman will be supported by taxpayers until she dies.

Meanwhile, our judges are letting repeat child molesters and pedophiles out of jail after multiple offenses, as we reported on yesterday.

If anything shows how whacked our laws are, this story does.

Leroy J. Fuller - Repeat Sex Offender Who Was Repeatedly Set Free, Repeated Sexual Assault On 6 Year Old Child - TWICE!

Waterville, Maine (The Weekly Vice) -- Leroy J. Fuller, a 66 year old registered sex offender has been arrested after molesting a child in a thrift store. But this isn't the first time he's sexually assaulted children. It's not the second time either. Fuller keeps right on fondling and assaulting while Maine keeps setting him free.

Fuller was arrested Monday night after he allegedly groped a 6 year old girl who was on a shopping trip with her family at a Ken-A-Set thrift store. He has been charged with unlawful sexual contact according to arresting officer Sgt. Jeffrey Bearce.

"The 6-year-old related to me that she was in the toy section and an elderly gentleman gave her a stuffed toy and talked to her and then grabbed her in the private area," Bearce said.

According to police, Fuller walked away and then returned a short time later and repeated the act on the child. The girl then told her sister what had happened, who told their father.

"Dad ran out of the store and brought him back into the building," Bearce said. "When I came, the elderly gentleman was sitting in a chair. The young girl pointed to the elderly gentleman who was sitting in the chair. I proceeded to interview him."

Fuller was booked into the Kennebec County Jail where he was ordered held on a $50,000 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

What is perhaps more alarming than the act itself is the extensive history of convictions, several of them sexual assaults, that this man has committed. Yet he's still walking around molesting 6 year old girls.

The state of Maine, who rejected Jessica's Law in lieu of a weaker variation of it is among the weakest in the nation regarding child sex law. Not so much with the police departments, who are trying to get these pedophiles off the street. It's the judges who keep suspending the sentences and letting perverts like Fuller walk right back out of jail.

Fuller was convicted of gross sexual assault in 1980, as well as sexual misconduct with a child and visual sexual aggression against a child in 2004.

Three convictions under two judges who didn't think molesting a child and exposing himself to another child was worth jail time.

The second item of interest is the complete lack of press coverage in Maine on this topic. A search of Fuller's exploits turned up very little local coverage of this story outside of Fuller's Sex Offender Listing.

It's darn hard to make the judges care about repeat pedo offenders like Fuller if the local community in Maine can hardly be roused long enough to research cases like this.

All we can say is this. It truly sucks to be a kid in Maine.

Michael Schedin - Part Time Teacher At Church Sexually Assaults Teen. Admits Guilt

Aloha, OR (The Weekly Vice) -- Michael Schedin, a 40 year old part time teacher and tutor at Palace of Praise Church in Aloha Oregon has been arrested and charged with sexual assault on a minor.

Police have charged Michael Schedin with third-degree sodomy and third degree sexual abuse on accusations that he sexually molested a minor in the Beaverton High School parking lot.

Police first learned about the incident when the teen told her parents who then contacted the Beaverton Police Department. Authorities say Schedin knew the alleged victim from the church they both attended.

In a brief statement, Schedin admitted culpability in the incident telling reporters "I am not innocent. I've done wrong. I'm sorry for hurting the family. I'm sorry for hurting the church."

[Note Scherer forgot to apologize the girl he molested]

Schedin was booked into the Washington County Jail, but was released shortly after posting bail.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

To us, this crime ranks one step above that of teachers who abuse their students - because acts like this pervert the trust of a child that goes to a spiritual level.

This kind of heinous crime not only affects the victim mentally and physically. This kind of rape can corrode a persons very center of well being. Their faith.

While the law does not necessarily see a difference from one child sex crime to another, we certainly do. We hope this perverted, disgusting individual gets some serious time.

Kathryn Anagnost - Former Principal And Teacher Busted For Throwing Alcoholic Party For Teens. Learning Her Lesson, She Throws A 2nd Alcoholic Party

Montour Falls, NY (The Weekly Vice) -- Kathryn Anagnost, a 40 year old former principal and teacher at Hanlon Elementary school and Groton Elementary school has been arrested a 2nd time for allegedly providing alcohol to minors.

According to police, Anagnost hosted an underaged drinking party at her residence over the weekend. She was arrested early Sunday morning after police were called to her residence to investigate a report of a possible assault.

The Schuyler County Sheriff's Department said Anagnost was charged with six counts of endangering the welfare of a child, six counts of unlawfully dealing with a child and second-degree criminal nuisance.

Police arrested several others at the party, including Jasmin Hescher, 20; Heather Horton, 20; Thomas Aldrich, 18; Katie Kuznezov, 16; Keith Jelliff Jr., 17; and Kristine Gardner, 20. The six youths were charged with unlawful possession of alcohol with intent to consume.

This is the second similar incident that has occurred in the last couple of weeks. She was also arrested on April 5 of this year after deputies say there was another underage drinking party in her home.

Agagnost was arraigned at Montour Falls Village Court Monday and ordered held on $1,000 bond at Yates County Jail.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Getting busted once for throwing a party like this is bad judgment. Getting busted TWICE in the same month is just plain idiotic. We almost hope she'll try it once more time just to ensure some jail time.

School is supposedly a place of learning.... So why don't these teachers and principals ever seem to learn for themselves?

Josef Fritzl - Father Imprisons His Daughter For 24 Years In House Of Horror Dungeon - Rapes Her Repeatedly, Fathering 7 Children

The video above is the first segment of a four part documentary. You can watch all four segments without leaving this page. To watch segments 2, 3, and 4 - play the video to its conclusion. Then choose the next segment from the list of suggested videos that follows.

Amstetten, Austria (The Weekly Vice) -- The world was horrified Monday as details began to emerge involving a man who has now confessed to imprisoning his daughter in a windowless, underground dungeon - never seeing the light of day for 24 years. What's more, the man repeatedly raped his daughter, fathering 7 children with her.

Josef Fritzl, a 73 year old retired engineer has confessed to enslaving his daughter Elisabeth Fritzl in an elaborate underground cellar, where he held his her captive for decades. He also told police that 7 children who reside in the home were his, conceived by Elisabeth.

Three of the children were forced to live their entire lives underground with Elisabeth, while three other children were allowed to move upstairs to live with Josef and his wife. The seventh child reportedly died a few days after birth and was burned in the cellar boiler.

Franz Polzer, head of the criminal investigations unit in the province of Lower Austria, said: "He has now said that he locked up his daughter for 24 years and that he alone fathered her seven children and that he locked them up in the cellar."

Investigators say that Elisabeth taught her captive children how to read and write from the confines of the dungeon. Items like food and clothing were passed through a hatch. A television, video recorder and a large radio were the only contacts Elisabeth and her children had with the outside world.

According to police, the cellar was kept locked with a secret pass code. Fritzl kept the prisoners in line by convincing them that the cellar had been booby trapped to explode if any of them tried to escape.

According to reports, Fritzl decided to release Elisabeth and her children Kerstin, 19, Stefan, 18 and Felix, 5, when Elisabeth fell seriously ill and required medical attention. Elisabeth's daughter Kerstin has also been hospitalized and is now in a coma.

Elisabeth, who entered the hospital pale, malnourished and white haired, told police she was held captive shortly after her 19th birthday, having been abused by her father since the age of 11. Elisabeth is now 42 years old. The picture above is of Elisabeth when she was teenager.

Police were called in when doctors asked Elisabeth for her medical history and she agreed to talk to them if they could assure her that she'd never again have to go back to the cellar.

Doctors have described Elisabeth's condition as 'suffering from serious physical condition that is deteriorating.'

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

This story is the most horrifying, unimaginable and unforgivable that we've reported on to date. While we've chronicled many stories of parental abuse of children, we have yet to ever see a case where a parent tormented a child in severe isolation for decades. Adding in the trauma of sexual abuse as well as seeing your children tormented.... Good God, what a nightmare.

This woman will need an enormous amount of love and outreach far, far away from the evil which lurked in the home she was imprisoned in.

If anyone knows of a fund that's been set up for these children, please inform us here, so we can get the word out.

Dale And Leilani Neumann - Murdered Their Daughter With Stupidity And Selfishness

Westin, WI ( The Weekly Vice ) -- Two parents who's daughter became sick with a treatable diabetic illness have been charged with homicide after refusing medical care for their 11 year old girl.

Dale and Leilani Neumann were charged today with 2nd-degree reckless homicide.

According to medical examiners, little Madeline Neumann became ill with a treatable diabetic illness that eventually claimed the girl's life. An autopsy determined that Madeline died from an undiagnosed diabetic ketoacidosis.

According to police, the Neumanns refused to take Madeline to the doctor, despite apparent signs of illness, opting instead to pray for healing.

According to court documents, Leilani Neumann said in a written statement to police that she never considered taking the girl to a doctor.

"We just thought it was a spiritual attack and we prayed for her. My husband Dale was crying and mentioned taking Kara to the doctor and I said, 'The Lord's going to heal her,' and we continued to pray," she wrote.

According to the court documents, the child's father Dale sent an e-mail out that stated, "Help our daughter needs emergency prayer!!!!." He also wrote that his daughter was "very weak and pale at the moment with hardly any strength."

Friends and family reportedly begged the parents to take Madeline to the doctor, however the Neumanns refused, claiming that the illness was "a test of faith for the Neumann family."

After Madeline passed, authorities advised the parents that their daughter would be taken to Madison for an autopsy the next day, but the parents responded "You won't need to do that. She will be alive by then".

One relative told police that the girl's mother believed she "died because the devil is trying to stop Leilani from starting her own ministry," the complaint said.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

We could go on with various quotes from these two numb skull parents, but we're confident the readers have gotten the gist of the story.

The only good that comes out of this entire situation is that these mutantly stupid parents will be locked up in jail, unable to start a ministry that ends up killing other kids.

Using faith as a means to disconnect one's brain from reality is a sad distortion of real faith.

God gives parents a perfectly good brain to figure out what's going on with our kids so we are able to protect them, not subject them to torment. It's truly sad that extreme cults like this parade such blatant idiocy under the guise of 'being faithful'.

We'd like to close out this post by dedicating the day to Madeline, who bravely hung in there for as long as she could, while her cruel, heartless and inadequate parents let her die.

While her child was in pain, this mother worried more about her own little ministry - which is precisely the direct opposite of what biblical love is all about. Serving one another, instead of one's self and one's own haughty endeavors.

Please rest in peace Madeline.... You are in a better place now, but will be missed by those who love you.

He was ordered held on a $250,000 bond which he posted shortly after being detained.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

We could be wrong, but it sounds to us like a divorce is in this couple's future. It seems the wife was trying to help - and her pedophile husband turned it into a personal sex-capade. We couldn't determine if the couple has children, but it just goes to show you how many victims there are around a pedophile.

Tampa, FL (The Weekly Vice) -- Arrested once, arrested twice....... and as if the train hasn't been wrecked enough, Stephanie Ragusa tops even herself for yet a third arrest on child sex charges.

Stephanie Ragusa, a 28 year old math teacher from Martinez Middle School was originally arrested on 5 counts of lewd and lascivious battery of a minor from a sexual relationship she had with a 15 year old boy when she was a teacher at Davidson Middle School.

Ragusa was then arrested again in mid April and charged with more charges involving a second boy who was 15 (some sources say 14).

Ragusa was smiling, as she usually does for the cameras as police led her away in handcuffs. She was transported back to the Orient Road Jail (Hillsborough County Jail) and re-booked on the new charges.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Alright, the insanity is beginning to get a little old. Granted, as attractive as she may be, her nuttiness is becoming certifiable. Makes you a little curious how many fan letters she has coming in down at the county jail.

Florida just keeps on cranking out hot, nutty teachers faster than we can keep them posted. But as the saying goes. It's a nice place to visit, but we wouldn't wanna live there. Ragusa included.

According to police, Sotonwa groped and fondled the various women during exams for things the women had not reported.

“The victims would go to the doctor for a simple procedure, or simple check up, or a routine issue, and somehow through the exam. The doctor would lead them into, either he's fondling their breasts, or he's touching them inappropriately, “ Lt. Mike Loux said.

Among the complaints, one woman stated that Sotonwa fondled her breasts for 15 minutes. Another woman stated “He examined my inner thighs with a business card, then asked me to take off my clothes so he could place the card near my bottom. When I would make a noise, he said 'it makes me horny when you do that'.”

Dr. Sotonwa was arrested about a week ago on charges of batter and sexual battery. He was arrested again a week later on two additional felony counts of committing lewd and lascivious acts on children under the age of 16.

One patient went to Sotonwa complaining about heaviness in the chest and to receive a checkup for menopause. According to police, Sotonwa determined that she had a urinary tract infection and "told her to take it easy on the sex." When the patient said she was abstinent, the doctor told her to strip off her clothes. He then touched her inappropriately.

Another patient came to Sotonwa on referral for a gall bladder surgery and a routine mammogram. When Sotonwa offered to give the woman a breast exam, the woman refused, demonstrating on herself how she gives herself regular exams. He told her she was doing it all wrong and proceeded to fondle her breasts for about 15 minutes. He then allegedly told the woman that she could be his girlfriend if she wanted to.

Sotonwa was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and ordered held on $40,750 bond.

"He has told me that he is sorry for what he did and how it has affected everyone's life - and it even, it has everything to do with our lives. It expands, it goes out, it affects the students at the school and the teachers and everybody and here we are today," Said Overcash' attorney Bill Fritts.

Message To The Victim and Community:

We've allowed for an active forum on this issue during the course of these proceedings. During that time, the name, activities, personality, reputation and dignity of this student has been repeatedly trampled - although she at no time was charged with a crime.

As forum administrator, I want to personally apologize to this young lady if she had the occasion to read any of the comments made on this site.

No parent should ever be put in the position of wondering what school officials are doing with their children.

No student should ever be left to the guidance of adults who engage in sexual activity with other students - consensually or by force.

From this moment on, I will delete any and all comments that impugn the name, activities, persona and/or reputation of the student in this case. It's repulsive, irresponsible and a bad reflection on your community.

Post one comment about this student and I'll delete it within hours.

Furthermore, I want this victim to know that we support her fully. This site will also be cooperative with the student and/or her parents in determining what this link displays. Just email us and let us know if we can be of any help in this regard.

Furthermore, we have been in contact with local police. If I hear one threat or even a suggestion of a threat against this individual, I will provide the i.p address of that individual to authorities - and they can use it as they see fit. Yes, i.p. trackers can be installed on blogger now.

Enough is enough.

Officers found him in Forsyth County.”

Abbie-Jane Swogger - UPDATE - Teacher Sex Scandal Finally Explodes. Police File 33 New Charges

New Kensington, PA (The Weekly Vice) -- As we predicted early on, the case of Abbie Jane Swogger - the ex-stripper turned teacher's aid, is shaping up to be perhaps the most prolific teacher's sex scandal of all time. Investigation into this mother and short term teacher's aid has produced a sheer volume of charges that now surpass any teacher sex scandal that we're aware of thus far.

Just to be clear, we aren't classifying this case as the most nationally recognized one. That distinction belongs to former teacher Debra Lafave, who's photos still circulate the Internet.

This case however seems to be a bottomless, meaning that the charges seem to double every few months as police uncover more and more about Swogger's activities.

Well, here we go again.

New Kensington Police have filed 33 new charges against Abbie-Jane Swogger, a 34 year old former teachers aid at Highlands High School.

Previously, Swogger was arrested after police found her hosting a drugs and sex party with several high school students. Investigators say that Swogger got the male and female students high in hopes of luring them to have sex with her. Police found cocaine, alcohol and condoms at the hotel where the party took place.

Police say Abbie-Jane then violated the terms of her bond when she was found in the home of another Highlands High School teacher's aide.

As police went to arrest her at her home, they found her with a 17 year old boy who was inside her house, yet another violation of her bond. Inside Swogger's home, police found cocaine and crack cocaine as well is various drug paraphernalia. Additional charges of 'Drug Possession' and 'Corrupting The Morals Of Minors' quickly ensued.

Are we finished yet?

Absolutely not! To make things interesting, grainy sex photos of Swogger surfaced on a MySpace personal page, showing an undressed Swogger grouped together with several teens. When police tracked down what was going on in THAT photo, the lid blew off this case.

Morgan O'Dell, one of the boys in the photo, said the pictures were taken at party at a home in Natrona in January of this year.

There were more than 15 people at a party ranging from the ages of 16 to 20. That's where he saw Swogger naked with some of the males fondling her.

"I stopped down and apparently walked into the wrong room," said O'Dell. "When I was there, everybody was grabbing her. I just got into the picture," O'Dell said. "I thought it was funny and then I left."

Police investigated and found that Swoggar took the picture during a party she threw at a 15 year old boy's house. The teacher allegedly had stripped for several under aged teens before posing for a group shot.

Police said Swogger had a relationship that lasted several weeks with one of those boys, a 17-year-old she met at the high school she had previously worked for.

Swogger was promptly charged with with 'corruption of minors', 'unlawful contact with a minor' and 'selling or furnishing liquor to minors.'

Now police have announced the addition of 33 additional charges in the case.

Police now say that a 17-year-old Harrison boy admitted to having a "sexual relationship" with Swogger for several weeks starting in January.

Swogger will also be charged on accusations that she offered to give two girls $40 to beat up another girl who allegedly posted one of Swogger's nude photos on the Web.

Various other charges include soliciting sex from two minor girls, having unlawful contact with minors, having cocaine, and corrupting the morals of minors.

The number of separate sex scandals that have been generated in this case has required prosecutors to roll all the separate cases into one colossal monster drugs/sex case.

Add up all of the sex charges, all of the drug charges and another stack of assorted teen corruption charges - and you have what could easily be the most drama rich teacher sex scandal to date.

This may be what shapes up to be the mother of all teacher sex scandal cases - and the trial hasn't even begun.

Sgt. Thomas Petty, a 43 year old veteran of the Bradenton police force resigned immediately following allegations that he had a 10 year long extramarital affair while in uniform.

According to filed police reports, Alison Wright told officials that Petty had sex with her while he was on duty.

Wright accused Sgt. Petty of stealing from her and then and filed an official complaint saying she had a relationship with Petty for more than 10 years. Wright alleged that Petty had sex with her several times while he was on duty and in uniform, according to her complaint.

After Petty submitted his resignation from the force, the woman trotted back in soon after and recanted her story.

Police have announced no plans to investigate the matter.

As for Ms. Wright, she obviously has forgiven him now. See, we told you that Bradenton is a friendly town.

Melissa A. Brown - Middle School Teacher Arrested For Bank Robbery. School Officials ‘Stonewall’ Parent Concerns

Barboursville, W.V. (The Weekly Vice) -- Melissa A. Brown, a 28 year old art teacher at Stonewall Jackson Middle School and her brother, 24 year old Jeremy Brown have been arrested and accused of robbing a Barboursville bank.

According to police, Melissa Brown drove the red Chevrolet Cavalier getaway car following the robbery of the First Sentry Bank. Her brother Jeremy Brown passed a note to tellers threatening he had a gun and demanding money.

The sibling duo didn't get far. The Brown's red Cavelier was pulled over by police Monday morning, shortly after the bank was robbed. The brother and sister tag team was arrested and hauled off to jail. End of story.

Well, not exactly.

When authorities in nearby Charleston learned the details of the Barboursville robbery, they found many similarities to a robbery that occurred in their own town just a week earlier. Tactics used in both robberies involved similar methods and a similar description of the getaway car. Police also say evidence found in the Browns' car tied the teacher and her brother to both robberies.

"It was determined that the details surrounding both robberies were identical," said Charleston Police Sgt. Steve Cooper.

"After the interview process, the suspects implicated themselves in both robberies," Cooper added.

Parents who have expressed concern to school officials over the bank robbing teacher have been given a rather "Stonewalled" response from the school.

According to school superintendent Melanie Vickers, Brown's arrest is a 'personal matter'.

"We follow the same procedures when there is an investigation," Vickers said. "(She is) suspended with pay until proven guilty."

"We've got a lot bigger problems in our schools than having one teacher who drove a getaway car in a bank heist," said School Board member Pete Thaw.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Well Pete, we're curious what big problem your school has.

If your school has a LOT bigger problems than hiring teachers who are robbing banks each week, we'd be curious to know what else is going on in that school.

Refusing to thoroughly address parent concerns involving felony crime among your staff sends a strong message that your administration could truly care less about the concerns of your community. Apparently you've forgotten that your salary is funded from taxpayer dollars, Pete.

If your administrators are unable to understand why an event like this is disruptive to students who attend your school, there is indeed a serious problem.

If the school board is so aloof to THIS problem, what other problems does it consider minor and/or personal matters?

While a school can't be responsible for the behavior of every one of it's teachers, it certainly DOES have an obligation to take steps to ASSURE parents that their children will be safe while attending the school.

Every single day of the week a teacher somewhere is caught raping a kid, doping up or robbing a bank.

Keeping in mind that a person's child is under the authority of such individuals for the whole day gives any parent the right to demand that it's school answer their questions thoroughly.

If these school administrators can't handle the task of answering parent's concerns over something as startling to students as this, then perhaps it's time for those school admins to consider another 'less complicated' line of work.

A school administration is a profession, not a dictatorship. It's time for parents to hold administrators like Pete accountable for such unprofessional, non-attentive answers such as his. If he cannot handle the job, perhaps it's time to find someone who can.

Pete seems to have forgotten that he is not a Czar. He is accountable just like everyone else is in life. It's up to this community's parents to assure that he is.

Jon Jeffrey Jones – Principal Caught Peeping In Neighborhood Windows Is Found Guilty

Sugar Land, Texas (The Weekly Vice) -- Jon Jeffrey Jones, a 39 year old assistant principal at Garcia Middle School who resigned his position after he was caught peeping into the window of a single mom's home, has been found GUILTY.

Jones who's teaching license is now under scrutiny, first came to the attention of authorities when a neighbor reported the principal peeping into the window of a single mother who resides in Sugar Land, Texas.

After the report, police patrolled the neighborhood, keeping a watch on the woman's home. That's when they caught Jones peeping once again.

"He indicated that he had watched a woman there at the house get dressed," said Capt. Gary Cox said.

According to police, Jones also admitted to peeping on another home in the area. He told police that he peeped a number of times, jogging back and forth between homes.

Police arrested Jones on charges of disorderly conduct and was sentenced to a $150 fine.

Jones worked in the Fort Bend County Independent School District for 17 years and was an assistant principal at Garcia Middle School for three years.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

A $150 fine? Are they serious? A simple speeding ticket can run higher than this.

Evelyn Mora - Arrested For Child Neglect, Her Flea Bitten Kids Lived In A Roach Infested Hell Hole

East Naples, Fla. ( The Weekly Vice ) -- It's time once again to pick a winner for our bad Mother of the week. A few days ago we featured a story about couple who had locked their babies in a concrete based room with nothing more than a bottle of curdled milk. This week, such conditions will seem like heaven to this woman's poor children. Read on and see if you agree. Evelyn Mora. The 'mommy dearest' of coke addicted white trash.

Evelyn Mora, a 25 year old East Naples, Florida mother of twin boys has been arrested on charges of child neglect and possession of drug paraphernalia following a visit to her home from local police.

Let's back up and start from the beginning.

Early Sunday morning, a passing driver noticed a three year old child walking alone in a drainage ditch. Upon closer inspection, the driver noted the child was filthy and covered in insect bites.

The drainage ditch was near an abandoned apartment complex that is increasing inhabited by groups of homeless persons, so the driver called police.

When police arrived, the boy directed them to his home, where police found toys, bikes, roller skates and an unkempt baby pool in the front yard. Nothing however prepared them for the horror which lurked inside the child's home.

Police knocked on the home's half open door and got no response. After knocking hard several times and calling for the child's parent, a disheveled Mora stumbled out of a back room. Bloodshot eyes and a "slept in" dress was the first impression authorities got of the the child's mother.

While talking to Mora, authorities began to notice the inside of the house, which appeared to be a disaster pit. Officers asked the unemployed Mora if they could enter the home and Mora agreed, explaining that she had lived in the home for about four months.

Upon closer inspection, officers noted that the residence had no running water or electricity. Mora had an answer for that. She told officers that she had not had electricity in the home for weeks because she was planning to move. [ghetto talk for 'awaiting eviction'].

According to the police affidavit, authorities moved to Mora's bedroom, where they found more surprises. Inside the room, the officer found empty beer bottles, moldy pizza on a bookshelf, cigarette butts littered across the floor, marijuana rolling papers and a hand roller.

Moving to the kitchen, officers found more good housekeeping practices. More empty beer bottles, strewn cigarette butts and moldy, spoiled food that littered the counter tops, sink and microwave. The report noted an 'overwhelming' odor from the spoiled food that had been left about.

In a back bedroom, officers found unattended burning candles next to a baggie which contained the residue of a white substance. A marijuana pipe was found on top of a pile of dirty laundry and children's toys.

The same white substance was found on a couch which was also cluttered with children's toys.

In the arresting affidavit, police also noted dead roaches on the floor. While officers inspected the residence, they watched Mora's other three year old pick up a discarded ketchup packet and squeeze the contents into his mouth. [It was likely the only unspoiled thing in the house to eat].

Police then inspected the home's bathroom. Yes, things get a bit worse.

In the bathroom, officers found the bathtub filled with 'blackish' water, with human feces smeared about. A snorting straw was found also covered with human feces.

We could go on of course, but for the sake of those who have yet to eat, we'll throw the anchor down here.

Needless to say, authorities took both children out of the home and placed them with the Florida Department of Children and Families.

They also arrested Mora on a charge of felony child neglect and one count of possession of narcotics paraphernalia.

Incidentally, Mora's next door neighbor commented to reporters that Mora had a roommate and had planned to move because her landlord was giving her "Too many problems".

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

We doubt the owners of the home will be sad to see Mora go. It really doesn't get much worse than a house that is so trashed, even the cockroaches die.

What seems worse is Mora's obvious devotion to her own looks, as seen in her MySpace page, while her kids roam the gutters covered in flea bites.

We don't think 'disgusting' quite describes this coke addicted, child neglecting burn out of a mother. Anyone beg to differ?

Elizabeth Peters - Teacher Burns Neighbor's House Down, Then Brings Them Stew

Little Egg Harbor Township, N.J. (The Weekly Vice) -- Elizabeth Peters, a 43 year old substitute teacher residing in Tuckerton, N.J. has been arrested amid accusations of aggravated arson and burglary. BONUS: After burning down her neighbor's home, she whipped up a batch of stew, brought it over to them and hung out like best friends.

Peters, who has been accused of setting multiple fires in the area has been charged with four counts of aggravated arson, two counts of burglary and two counts of attempted burglary.

According to police, Peters set her Ocean County neighbor's home ablaze. She also set a neighbors boat and air conditioner on fire, which spread to two additional homes.

Among the victims of Peter's arson spree is Kent and Linda Handlewitch.

Although the Handlewitch's were in Florida when their house was burned to the ground, they returned to find a good Samaritan in Peters who brought them dinner, while comforting them. "She came over and brought us a pot of stew and hugged and kissed me and I sat in the car with her for an hour," Linda said.

Other neighbors, such as Loretta Murphy are equally puzzled. "How do you burn someones house down and then bring them a stew," She asked.

"One of the fires was next door to Peters' house. [It] doesn't make any sense to me at all," She added.

While police have not yet established a motive, they did say they believed Peters was having trouble at home, according to police Detective Sgt. Mike Hart.

Peters was booked into the Ocean County Jail and ordered held on $75,000 bail. She posted bail and was released a short time later.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

People still eat stew? That right there is offensive all by itself. Especially if it had cooked tomatoes. Poor neighbors. She burned down their home and then punished them further with stew. And who knows where the meat in the stew REALLY came from. One neighbor thinks the cat died in the fire. Or did it?
