Police are reviewing the video (above) to see if the teacher acted in self defense, but alleges that the incident started when the teacher kicked the student as she was leaving the classroom. The video captured was recorder by another student's cell phone.

The school district is investigating and will decide whether the student will be expelled and whether Jones will keep her job, spokesman Dale Davis said.

We see this type of arrest on the news and on national television program’s all the time, but I was hoping I wouldn’t see it in Grayson County," said Keith Gray of the Grayson County Sheriff's Dept.

Chad And Diana Carey - Couple Arrested On Charges Of Ongoing Child Neglect And Abuse - Has Lengthy History Of Child Abuse/Neglect Issues

Tavares, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Chad Carey, 39 and Diana Carey, 42, have been arrested on multiple charges of child abuse and neglect. The arrest comes after a prior abuse conviction and lengthy history of abuse/neglect issues that have been logged by the Florida Department of Families and Children (DFC).

Chad and Diana Carey were arrested on Sunday after police were alerted to alleged neglect, following 6 reports and 16 case referrals that were logged at the Florida Department Of Children And Families.

On May 20th, investigators began to conduct interviews with two of the couple's children while they were at school.

During the interview, the boys told investigators that their father, Chad Carey, often beat them with belts and extension cords, according to court documents.

According to authorities, the boys were covered with bruises and sores and were described as "extremely unsanitary" and generally unhealthy. The children told investigators that they had not bathed in several days because the family home did not have running water.

The couple's 8 year old child had rope burns around his neck and a large, infected cut on one foot.

The beatings were not limited to just the children, according to court documents. The boys reportedly also told investigators that Chad Carey hit their dog so hard in the head with a dog leash, that it "does not walk right anymore."

Chad Carey was also arrested and charged with child abuse in 2007, after beating one of his sons. Carey pleaded guilty to a reduced charge and was sentenced to probation.

Chad Carey is now facing three counts of child abuse, three counts of child neglect and one count of animal abuse.

Diana Carey faces three counts of child neglect.

The couple is currently being held without bond at the Lake County Jail.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

We're wondering how these parents were able to maintain full custody of their kids following a conviction of abuse and a lengthy history of reports into child services of their continued behavior towards the kids.

More and more, kids have to pretty much be murdered before authorities really begin to get the message We're glad to see that the kids held on long enough to finally get the protection they deserve.

James Hawkins - Murders Girl Friend And Then Forces 12 Year Old Daughter To Help Cut Woman's Body Into Pieces

Memphis, TN (The Weekly Vice) -- James Hawkins, a man accused of killing his long-time girlfriend and the cutting off her head, feet and hands, apparently also forced his 12 year old daughter to participate in the gruesome acts on her own mother.

James Hawkins faced a judge on Wednesday during a hearing where Hawkins is accused of killing his girlfriend Charlene Gaither and then dismembering her body before dumping her in the Coldwater Creek in DeSoto County.

The court heard testimony from Gaither and Hawkins' 12 year old daughter, who told the court about what happened on the day of her mother's murder.

The girl said that during an argument, her father got a knife from their kitchen and stabbed Gaither in the neck, before ultimately choking her to death.

The girl then testified that afterwards, her father made her help cut off Gaither's head with a saw. She then helped cut off the woman's hands and feet. She went on to say she went along with Hawkins to dispose of the body and the dismembered body parts in various locations.

According to police, Hawkins was captured on security cameras purchasing the saw he used to cut Gaither's body into pieces. He then cleaned the saw up and returned it back to the store he purchased it at.

At the conclusion of Wednesday's hearing, the judge ordered that the case be sent to the grand jury.

James Hawkins has been charged with first-degree murder.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

On a side note, we also obtained a copy of the restraining order Gaither filed after Hawkins physically assaulted her and then threatened to harm her further on at least two occasions. Gaither had allegedly told Hawkins that she had decided to leave him, which apparently lead to the woman's eventual demise.

It's sad to know this woman reached out for help, knowing she was in serious trouble - but couldn't seem to get the protection she needed to prevent this gruesome murder.

But involving a 12 year old girl in cutting up her own mother is just beyond comment, as it really goes beyond any kind of rational explanation

Janmattie Singh - Teacher Arrested For Having Sex With 15 Year Old Student And His Two Cousins. Goes Back For Seconds

Queens, NY (The Weekly Vice) -- Janmattie Singh, a 22 year old English teacher at Richmond Hill High School in Queens, New York has been arrested and charged with third-degree rape and endangering the welfare of a child.

According to police, Singh had sex with a 15 year old male student and his two cousins.

Singh allegedly called one of the boys in January indicating that she wanted to have sex with him. When the boy told Singh he couldn't get away, investigators say Singh then went to the Brooklyn home where the boys were and had sex with them.

According to court documents, Singh had a second sexual encounter with the two older boys at her apartment about a month later.

The Department of Education says Singh has been on medical leave since November, and that her name has now been placed on the ineligible list -- meaning she can never work for the city again.

Singh's attorney has commented that the teacher was victimized by the teens she had sex with her, stating that they knew she was on medication at the time.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

So the teacher calls up a student, asks to have sex with him, comes over to his house - but it's the teens' fault she had sex with them? Victimized?

That's a might far bridge to cross counselor. We're not ready to buy it.

On the other hand, New York is not known for heavy sentences resulting from teacher/student sex convictions. We fully suspect this teacher will serve a minimal jail sentence if any. If we had to bet on it, we'd say she'll get a deferred probation sentence - but we'll see.

Kerry Foulk - Teacher Pleads Guilty To Sexually Assaulting 14 Year Old Girl, Cuts A Deal With Prosecutors To Avoid Jail Time

Nederland, Texas (The Weekly Vice) -- Kerry Smith Foulk, a 47 year old former substitute teacher at Nederland High School in Nederland, Texas has pleaded guilty to felony charges of indecency with a child after molesting a 14-year-old girl in September 2006.

According to Jefferson County prosecutor Pat Knauth, Foulk's sexual contact with the 14 year old girl occurred at Foulk's home and was not an isolated incident. "After this student made an outcry, others came forward," said Knauth.

Knauth went on to say that Foulk had a history of befriending young teen females that she taught, noting that Foulk allowed the girls to stay overnight at her home.

"She would provide alcohol to them, talk about sex with them, try to get them drunk," Knauth said. "It was obvious, at least to me, that she was grooming these other girls but that the other girls stepped out of the situation before something could happen."

Foulk has struck a plea agreement with prosecutors that would sentence her to a 10 year deferred adjudication probation. She would also be required to register as a sex offender and pay counseling cost of the victim.

The plea agreement is subject to approval by state 252nd District Court Judge Layne Walker, who is scheduled to sentence Foulk next month.

Teacher Caught On Tape Humiliating Kindergarten Student In Front Of Entire Class

New Albany, Ind. (The Weekly Vice) -- Just yesterday, we posted a story on 5 year old Alex, who's teacher allegedly humiliated him in front of his entire class, by allowing each student to comment about what they didn't like about him. The teacher later asked the class to vote on whether Alex should stay in the class, telling the youth that no one liked him.

Now, just a day later, a very similar story has emerged of a teacher's abuse and humiliation of another 5 year old boy, Gabriel Ross, in Indiana. This time however, the teacher was caught on tape.

Kristen Woodward, a kindergarten teacher at Ellen Jones Elementary School has been suspended after she was recorded berating 5 year old Gabriel in front of his class.

While Gabriel's parents admit that he has not been a model student. They believe the teacher decided to verbally abuse their son, instead of disciplining him.

After months of hearing the boy complain about his 'mean' teacher, Gabriel Ross' parents decided to send a pocket tape recorder with him to school with instructions to record the 'mean' conduct Gabriel had been telling them about.

When the tape came back, they were shocked to hear the teacher's ongoing rant against their son, which contained the following rebukes:

"You've punished everyone in this building with your behavior. Everyone has been affected by your nasty behavior. Everyone. Cafeteria workers, the monitors, the art teacher, music teacher ... ten people in this building you have tormented and tortured for 149 days. I'm done."

"You've been ignorant, selfish, self-absorbed, the whole thing. I'm done..."

Then Ms. Woodward asked the class to join in by asking: "He has made every wrong choice possible and he has had more help to make right choices and he has chose not to. So you guys think, is that somebody you want to be with?"

"Noooo," says the kindergarten class said.

"See, your friend doesn't want to be with you," said Woodward.

Gabriel's parents have now pulled Gabriel out of the school and have said that they plan to seek out counseling for Gabriel.

"We seriously need to find somebody to talk with Gabriel to see if he's alright, because this experience for 149 days - as far as I'm concerned that's how long it went on."

The Indiana State Teachers Association is standing up for Woodward, who has taught for 13 years. They say the school system went too far with the suspension and didn't give Woodward a fair chance to give her side of the story.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

A majority of the media who is following this story has all but lynched this teacher for her words - and we're partial to agreeing with that sentiment, however we're not going to take this position quite yet.

We have a bigger bone to pick with the school who we believe is at least partially to blame here - not just the teacher.

Most schools have special funding for children who present behavioral or emotional problems in class. This funding usually goes to additional support such as an extra teacher who can take a smaller class of kids with a history of behavioral issues - and works with them on a more one on one basis.

This is good for the student, because it gives them a more specialized care that may help them. It's also good for the rest of the class, who can move ahead on a different track. Lastly, it's good for the teacher, who can follow a lesson plan, instead of having it disrupted every 10 minutes.

It's clear that this school did not provide these resources to the teacher - and we absolutely do NOT believe this teacher got to this point without ever going to school authorities and discussing this problem.

We could be wrong, perhaps this teacher tried to handle things on her own - but it's clear that she's in over her head here and is simply reacting out of sheer frustration.

Meanwhile, the school board will throw this teacher under the bus, never acknowledging that it's THEIR responsibility to handle special needs cases (and this may very well qualify).

In an effort to save money, many schools misappropriate funding that is designed to go directly to situations like THIS.

If the school board has been negligent in using these funds appropriately, then their ass should be in the meat grinder right along with the teacher here.... and in our opinion, they should shoulder more of the blame, since they control the purse strings and resourcing here.

We hope some of the news outlets in this local community will investigate the school's role in all of this, instead of just putting the whole issue on the teacher's shoulders.

Craig Gullicksen - Convicted, Sentenced For Repeated Sexual Assault Of 10 Year Old Girl

Delafield, WI (The Weekly Vice) -- Craig A. Gullicksen, a 59 year old former music teacher at St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy in Delafield, Wisconsin has been convicted of repeatedly sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl.

Gullicksen, who taught at St. John's Academy for approximately 10 years was accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a 10 year old girl over a 60 day period in 2007.

Police first became aware of the incidents when the victim disclosed the activity to her mother, who then contacted police. When police questioned Gullicksen, he allegedly told them that the girl was being truthful about the events. He also told police that he sexually assaulted the girl 5 to 10 times.

Gullicksen was found guilty of three counts of 4th-degree sexual assault of a child.

Although Gullicksen will not have to register as a sex offender, he was sentenced to 6 months in jail. He has also been sentenced to 3 years of probation and has been ordered to have no contact with the victim.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

As a side note, the unreported tragedy in this case (in our opinion) is that Gullicksen's wife has lung cancer. As a result of losing his job, Gullicksen's health care insurance will be running out soon, which of course is essential to his wife's cancer treatment. We are not aware of any other provisions she'll have for treatment and since it is a pre-existing condition, she'll fall into a position that no non employment insurance carriers will want to touch.

We aren't comparing tragedies here as they are both horrible situations. But we want to make a point that in cases such as these, there are multiple victims who are effected by this kind of activity. The victim AND the various family members who surround both parties.

We genuinely hope that the little girl will be young enough, that she'll be able to overcome these events with time. We also send our best wishes out to another innocent party, Mr. Gullicksen's wife who is also battling a horrible disease.

Megan Douglas - Naked Teen Crashes Car, Then Tells Police She Deals Marijuana. Where Else Would This Happen But Florida?

Port St. Lucie, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Megan M. Douglas, an 18 year Florida woman was arrested after police found her naked at the scene of an accident. She went on to tell police that she "deals in marijuana".

Douglas was driving a Toyota Highlander Friday night, when her SUV ran off the road and hit a utility pole.

Teacher Humiliates 5 Year Old Boy With Disability In Front Of Class - Leads Students To Vote Boy Out Of Class

Port St. Lucie, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Proving once more that the Florida School system is truly the arm pit of the country - A Morningstar Elementary School teacher humiliates a 5 year old disabled boy in front of his class - allowing students to insult and then vote him out of the class, one by one.

Melissa Barton, Alex' mother is outraged and considering legal action after her son's kindergarten teacher instructed students to humiliate her son, one by one, as he stood alone before the class.

After each student was allowed to tell Alex what they didn't like about him, each student was allowed to vote on whether Alex should stay in the class or not. 14 students voted him out, while two students voted that he should stay in the class.

Barton became aware of the incident when her son told her that he had been voted out of class. Not understanding what her son was referring to, she approached school officials to clarify the comments.

According to Barton, the teacher told her that she instructed each class member to tell Alex what they didn't like about him. After a vote, the teacher asked Alex where he planned to go next, by which the little boy replied "I guess I'll go sit with the principal". The teacher reportedly told Alex that the principal didn't want him either.

Alex, a special needs child is reportedly being tested for autism and has been receiving disabilities assistance for behavioral problems.

St. Lucie School spokeswoman Janice Karst said the district is investigating the incident, but could not make any further comment. The state attorney's office concluded the matter did not meet the criteria for emotional child abuse, so no criminal charges will be filed.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

While there is always two sides to every story, ANY of the above activities is both repulsive, abusive, humiliating and recurrent reminder of the complete insanity that goes on with the Florida school system.

If Florida teachers aren't abusing kids, they're molesting them - on a daily basis.

We wish we could say we were being sarcastic, however an easy 1/4 of the crimes on students we report on this site come out of Florida. We skip many stories in an attempt to avoid being annoyingly redundant in our reports.

This particular case is upsetting to us here at the Vice on a number of levels.

The actions of the teacher are unprofessional, destructive and cruel to any child's self esteem which is not the role of any teacher. The school's decision to crawl under their desks instead of putting the teacher on immediate leave while they investigate, is the second problem. The state's unwillingness to get involved is the third problem.

There are many resources available - paid by the state - to assist special needs children in Florida. Humiliating and attacking a student is not one of those programs. Neither if voting a student out of class - especially since Florida state law REQUIRES every child attend school.

Put together, you have the perfect example of why Florida schools continue to make headlines for having the most corrupt, unprofessional, child abusing school officials in the country.

We'd like to let Mrs. Barton know that we're behind her 100% in drawing attention to the actions of the school. While what the teacher did is repulsive, we're most concerned with what the school is choosing to do about it.

Idiot teachers in Florida are a plenty. It's the school's job to keep the numbers of lunatic teachers in their ranks to a minimum.

AND as a special note for the teacher, Wendy Portillo. You failed our class - please get the hell out of teaching.

Quincy, Mass. (The Weekly Vice) -- Norman J. Finizio II, a 46 year old special education teacher at Quincy High School in Quincy, Massachusetts has been arrested and charged with indecent assault and battery on a child under 14.

Police are investigating Finizio after allegations surfaced that the teacher molested a 9 year old girl in his home.

According to police, the victim told her mother about the alleged activities. The mother then contacted authorities.

The girl told police that 'Norman' would always put the pornography movies on his computer screen to watch. She also stated that they always "played school" in his office, according to court documents.

Court documents went on to say that Finizio explained to the 9 year old what happens when a man likes a woman, further explaining how his body changes.

The girl's mother told police that she had confronted Finizio at one point, by which Finizio allegedly stated that he may have 'crossed the line', but that he only made the statements because he is a teacher and kids come to him.

Quincy School Superintendent Richard DiCristofaro said he had Finizio escorted from the school by the resource officer and director of security and safety when he learned of the situation.

Authorities became aware of the allegations on Monday of last week and obtained an arrest warrant in the case on the following Thursday.

Police have also reportedly obtained a warrant to search Finizio's home, where they recovered items including Finizio's computer.

Norman Finizio is currently being held without bond until a Wednesday hearing. He has also been placed on paid administrative leave by the school.

Lesbians Arrested, Performed Sex Acts At Public Pool In Front Of Children

Casselberry, Fla (The Weekly Vice) - Johannie Jimenez and Emily Hernandez have been arrested on multiple charges after performing sex acts on each other in front of children at a Casselberry, Florida public pool.

According to the Seminole County Sheriff's Department, two women stripped down and engaged in oral sex while a third woman photographed them inside a bathroom at the Casselberry public pool.

Police became aware of the incident after a pregnant woman who was at the pool with her children, walked in on the three women and wasn't allowed to leave.

The woman told police she walked into the bathroom with her children and noticed two naked women who were apparently engaged in oral sex with each other while a third woman photographed them.

When she tried to leave with her children, she said that the women prevented her from exiting, and then threatened that she not call police. When the woman did eventually leave, she contacted police who arrested the two women.

Jimenez and Hernandez have been charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition, battery, false imprisonment of an adult and false imprisonment of a child under 13 years old.

Seminole County Deputies also noted that while the women were being transported to the Seminole County Jail, Hernandez bit Jimenez while inside the patrol car.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

While it takes a special breed of stupidity to try such an act in a bathroom at a public pool, things might have gone better if they set up the shoot over in the men's bathroom where such a thing might be treated as 'entertainment' as opposed to lewdness. We're being sarcastic, of course.

We could be wrong, but Jimenez appears to be strung out on meth and they both appear to be wearing deputy windbreakers for lack of having their own clothes. Either way, it must have made for an obnoxious scene.

According to police, Froehlich, initiated a personal relationship with a resident student that included 'inappropriate touching'. The John L. Gildner Regional Institute for Children and Adolescents is a special needs school that specializes in assisting children with emotional disabilities.

Authorities say that the alleged incidents occurred on school property during school hours.

Police began their investigation on May 19th after a school administrator contacted Child Protective Services alleging that Froehlich touched a student in an inappropriate way.

Lindsey H. Froehlich has been charged with fourth-degree sexual offense and sexual abuse of a minor. She was originally jailed on a $250,000 bond, which was later reduced to $75,000.

As a condition of her bond, the court banned Froehlich from the school premises and ordered her to have no contact with minors other than her 3 year old daughter, said David Martella, attorney for Froehlich.

‘‘She has no history of this kind of thing and if you talk to anyone at RICA they'll describe her as outstanding, outstanding, outstanding,” Martella said.

A Houston Couple Stores Dead Baby In Refrigerator/Freezer - Arrested And Charged

Houston, Texas (The Weekly Vice) -- A Houston couple has been arrested after police discover the couple's child, frozen solid in a freezer. Police say the couple stored their 6 month old child in a freezer for approximately a year.

Crystal Sosa, 25, and common-law husband Dezmond Blake, 29, have been arrested after police discovered the couple's son, Devin Blake, frozen solid in the couple's refrigerator / freezer.

Police first learned of the child's condition when Blake called police to report that the couple's son had died from natural causes. When investigators arrived, they found the body of a 6 month old child stuffed inside a duffel back inside the couple's motel-apartment freezer. Detectives say the child had been stored inside the refrigerator / freezer for almost a year.

"It's really a difficult concept to put your arms around -- that these people could have lived in this apartment for a year, still use their refrigerator and freezer, knowing full well that their child was inside the freezer," said Detective C.P. Abbey with the Houston Police Department

Sosa and Blake have been arrested and charged with felony 'tampering with evidence' according to police, noting that both suspects gave conflicting stories as to why the child was stored in the freezer.

Investigators who processed the room for evidence have found drugs and a gun inside the room the couple stayed in. An autopsy of the child is being conducted, to try and determine the cause of death.

Authorities have classified the case as 'ongoing' and stated that additional charges may be filed in the case. They also noted that the couple has a criminal history that ranges from prostitution to drug related offenses.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Does it really get much lower than this? How does one go to sleep at night, living in a motel room where your baby is frozen in your refrigerator. Sounds like a warm jail cell and 3 meals a day will be an upgrade.

We'd be surprised if there weren't additional charges coming out of this one. Something tells us that this child didn't just die of natural causes. There's a reason why the couple didn't take this baby to the hospital or free center.

We may be wrong, but we'd venture the couple debated during the year about what to do with the body. Something stopped them until they just couldn't live any longer with a dead baby frozen in their freezer like a holiday turkey.

Should we follow this story?

The World’s WORST Deadbeat Dad Goes To Prison. Pouts As They Cuff Him

Kissimmee, Fla. (The Weekly Vice) -- Where does the 'worst' deadbeat dad live? In Florida of course!

Robert Abraham, 65, the man Central Florida authorities have dubbed the "worst deadbeat dad", is finally going to jail.

According to court records, Abraham has repeatedly refused court orders to pay child support, and now owes at least $697,000 in back child support payments. The mass amount of back child support has accumulated over the past 17 years of non payments.

Abraham tried to defend himself vigorously, explaining in court that going to jail wouldn't allow him to work and earn child support. His attorneys said that Abraham was beginning to pay child support.

The prosecutor batted the defense down, pointing out that paying child support two months before going to court, wasn't quite going to make up for the 17 YEARS that he's missed payments.

During the hearing, Abraham's 20-year-old son took to the stand to testify about his father. He told the court that, during forced visits to his father’s house, he was abused and neglected by Abraham and his new wife.

Abraham claimed he didn't pay the money because he couldn't. But the judge went through years of court ordered payment programs Abraham violated. At the same time he bought expensive houses in his mother's name, got married again and took a honeymoon trip to Switzerland.

The judge sided with the prosecution, stating that 'leniency was not an option.'

Abraham is the first man in Central Florida to face third degree felony charges for non-payment of child support. As a result of his conviction, Robert Abraham was sentenced to 24 months in prison.

Abraham frowned and looked at his ex-wife and kids as deputies handcuffed him. As they lead Abraham from the court, he stared at them shaking his head.

Abraham was also ordered to serve several years of community service and start paying $1,000 a month towards the entire $700,000 he owes.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Do you think he'll start paying child support after he gets out of prison? We predict he will never consistently pay child support. In fact, he may spend more years in prison from this point forward, then he does on the outside.

Those $1,000 child support payments will be harder to make on a McDonald's paycheck. No more big houses and new wives for him from now on, huh?
