We’ve covered the distasteful subject of the burgeoning number of cases of teachers engaged in sexual abuse of minors, most often those entrusted in their care. Here are the most recent installments:
The daily reports that Tucson police have arrested Joseph O. Massey, a 36-year-old Utterback middle-school teacher on charges that he had a sexual relationship with one of his female students. He has been charged with two counts of sexual conduct with a minor.
Victor Scott McPeak Jr., 38, a father and former Arizona Charter Academy 5th grade teacher has been convicted and will serve up to 24 years, with lifetime probation as part of a plea agreement. In addition to fondling two of his young students, he was snared by the FBI last year in an international porn ring spanning more than 20 countries, according to a report in the daily.
McPeak, the son of a minister and once a youth minister himself, attended a school with a peculiar proclivity among its graduates: The daily reports that public records indicate the younger McPeak is the fourth person among those attending Ozark Christian College in the late 1980s and early 1990s to be linked to either child pornography or child molestation.
Seeing Red AZ is once again seeing red over this vicious exploitation of children by those who are hired to educate them — in scholastic matters.
