    Pervert Abusers Need Punishment

    I am so sick and tired of abusive predators that get away with exploiting and assaulting innocents. Here are just a few examples...what is wrong with this picture? Where are decency, morals, and values??? Are people getting complacent? The laws are in place against this crap.

    Hollywood probably thinks its funny.

    Teen Tells Congress of His Online Exploitation
    from staff reports

    Reporter testifies the government took no action against predators.

    A teenage victim of sexual exploitation via the Internet told his story to Congress Tuesday. Right under the nose of a watchful parent, Justin Berry was manipulated and abused for years by a network of pedophiles.

    Berry was just 13-years-old when he set up a Web cam with hopes of chatting with his peers. Within minutes, he was connected with a network of child predators.

    "One of these approached me online with a proposal," he told a House subcommittee. "He would pay me $50 if I took off my shirt for a few minutes while sitting in front of my webcam."

    Berry complied, thinking it was just easy money. But that was only the beginning.

    "The seduction was slow," he said. "Each request only went a bit further than the last, and the horror of what was happening didn't strike me at that time."

    Soon Berry was performing sexually for the camera and being molested in real life on a regular basis. All the while his mother, who used child-protective software and checked what was happening in his room, was unaware of what was happening. Steve Ryan, Berry's attorney, called it a common tale.

    "There are 1,500 people acting to subvert the actions of a single parent, and they win," he told the congressmen.

    Anti-porn groups have long accused the Justice Department of failing to enforce obscenity laws, and the testimony appeared to support that claim.

    Kurt Eichenwald, a reporter for The New York Times, said in this case the government refused to take action.

    "Important data offered to the government by Justin has, even at this late date, not been collected," he testified.

    Representatives of the Justice Department will appear before the committee on Thursday.

    Re: Pervert Abusers Need Punishment

    One Voice, Unheeded

    by Daniel Weiss, senior analyst, media and sexuality

    A teenager offered the government 1,500 pedophiles, but nothing has been done.

    As I watched the testimony of a teenage boy, robbed of his innocence by online predators, 14 years of angst concerning an ongoing lack of enforcement welled up inside me.

    Nearly 20 years ago in his video "The Winnable War," Dr. James Dobson described the dangers of pornographic material and outlined a strategy for stemming the flood of illegal obscenity. "The laws are on the book and we've got the resources," he said. "All we lack is the will."

    Dr. Dobson knew what he was talking about. Having served 14 months on the attorney general's Commission on Pornography, he had seen every imaginable degradation and vice, material that, he said, took a part of his soul. Yet, he remained optimistic, believing that America could rid itself of hard-core pornography if the Commission's recommendations were implemented.

    One of the recommendations was the establishment of an obscenity task force to assist U.S. attorneys in the prosecution and investigation of obscenity cases. Once established, that task force, which later became the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS) of the Justice Department, worked aggressively and effectively to arrest and prosecute producers and distributors of hard-core and child pornography. By the early 1990s, the open trade in child pornography had ended and hardcore pornographers were on the ropes.

    Fast forward to today. Obscenity has proliferated beyond anything Dr. Dobson — or anyone else — ever imagined. Hard-core pornography has moved from back alleys and red-light districts to Wall Street, bestsellers lists and virtually every home in America through the Internet. Nine out of 10 school-age kids have been exposed to pornography online, 47 percent receive pornographic spam on a daily basis, and at least one in five has been sexually solicited online.

    This begs an important question: What happened?

    The problem is not inadequate laws, but inadequate enforcement of existing laws. Federal code already prohibits the sexual solicitation of minors, solicitation online, child pornography, sexual abuse of minors, and the sale or distribution of obscenity. Even now, many federal lawmakers are falling over themselves to introduce new child-protection legislation.

    These officials should stop for a moment and pay close attention to yesterday's congressional testimony from 19-year-old Justin Berry and New York Times reporter Kurt Eichenwald, the crux of which provides a frightening window into the abject failure of the nation's top law-enforcement agency to do its job.

    Justin's testimony conjures up superlative descriptions: gut-wrenching, stomach-churning, appalling, unbelievable, horrific. Now 19, Justin recounted how at 13 he was propositioned by a child predator within minutes of signing up to a Web cam site. This proposition led to years of sexual abuse and molestation by as many as 1500 pedophiles online and in person. Justin became addicted to drugs and wanted to die. His own father pimped him for money. He was fully ensnared in an online nightmare few of us have ever dreamed possible.

    His way out came through Eichenwald, who tracked him down and convinced him to offer evidence to the Justice Department about the sexual predators who had preyed on him.

    This is where the story grows even more disturbing. According to Justin and Eichenwald, rather than move immediately to protect Justin and secure evidence against 1,500 online pedophiles, CEOS wanted to prosecute him for his crimes. This section, whose sole mission is to prosecute obscenity and child predators, evaded, ignored, neglected and generally mishandled the entire case. To date, more than nine months after learning of his abuse, Justin claims CEOS has never questioned him about the names he turned over or even examined his computer.

    Oh, that this were an isolated incident! My four years of work on obscenity issues has repeatedly died on the threshold of CEOS. Our policy magazine, Citizen, even featured its failure in a cover story in 2003. Numerous meetings with the attorney general and other top DOJ officials have always ended with the same answer: CEOS is doing a good job.

    Not according to Justin Berry. Or Kurt Eichenwald.

    Their allegations raise serious questions of malfeasance and corruption, and certainly point out abuse of the public trust of the highest magnitude.

    An attorney friend of mine insists that we reserve judgment until we hear the other side of the story. She's right, and the other half of the story will be presented at part two of the House hearing on Thursday morning.

    Here are the questions I'd like answered:

    1. If a reporter stumbled across Justin Berry while investigating a story on corporate fraud, what is CEOS' Hi-Tech Investigative Unit doing? Why didn't it find him first? Or others like him?

    2. Why did the DOJ wait 50 days to grant Justin immunity in order to get his evidence about 1,500 active online pedophiles?

    3. If CEOS is truly committed to preventing child exploitation, why has it never questioned Justin about the active pedophiles he handed them or even analyzed his computer? Why have only two of the 1,500 people named by Justin been brought to justice?

    4. If CEOS is not investigating and prosecuting violations of obscenity law and is not investigating and prosecuting violations of child-porn and child-exploitation laws, what is it doing with the millions of dollars in funding it receives each year?

    After 14 years of inaction, it's time to find some answers. Anyone concerned about the flood of pornography and frustrated by law enforcement's meager response needs to tune in to Thursday's hearing. If the DOJ's answers don't satisfy, they need to contact their elected representatives and demand a deeper investigation into the failures and abuses at CEOS.

    Dr. Dobson believed fighting illegal pornography was a winnable war, but knew victory would "occur only if American citizens demand action from their government. Nothing short of a public outcry will motivate our slumbering representatives to defend community standards of decency."

    Will Americans finally cry out for justice? Thousands of abused children are waiting to find out.

    Thursday's Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations hearing can be viewed online, starting at 10 a.m. ET.

    It is also scheduled to be carried on CSPAN 3. Some cable networks carry it and it's also available for viewing online. Look for the section titled, "Live Streams."

    Then, if you want to ask you representative in Congress to call for an investigation of CEOS, you can send e-mail through the CitizenLink Action Center.

    Florida dismisses
    Lafave's charges

    Attractive blond teacher accused
    of relations with 14-year-old boy

    Posted: March 21, 2006

    Editor's note: The newest edition of Whistleblower magazine pulls the covers off the shocking number of cases of lust-filled teachers, especially women, who have sexual relations with their students. Find out more here!

    Debra Lafave

    In a case followed nationwide, Florida prosecutors dropped charges against former Tampa teacher Debra Lafave, who admitted having sex with a 14-year-old middle school student.

    The boy's mother, along with prosecutors and defense attorneys wanted to avoid public trial for the sake of her son, the Associated Press reported.

    The victim has suffered extreme anxiety from the media attention, a psychiatrist previously told Marion County Circuit Judge Hale Stancil.

    The decision to drop charges came after the judge
    rejected a plea deal that would have meant no prison time for Lafave. The judge said the agreement, with no prison time, "shocks the conscience of this court."

    But Assistant State Attorney Richard Ridgway later argued, "The court may be willing to risk the well-being of the victims in this case in order to force it to trial. I am not."

    At a news conference after the announcement, Lafave said she had a bipolar disorder. Her attorney indicated she was getting treatment.

    "I have a lot of things in my past that have unfortunately become public," Lafave said.

    The former teacher still faces three years of house arrest and seven years probation in Hillsborough County, where she was charged.

    In a plea deal there last November, she pleaded guilty to two counts of lewd and lascivious battery. The 25-year-old teacher was charged with having sex with the boy in a classroom and her home. In another county, Marion, she was accused of having sex with the boy in an SUV.

    The phenomenon of teachers accused or convicted of having sex with their students has come to the forefront of national and international news in recent years.

    Some of the cases involving women have been collected by WND, including:

    Angela Stellwag, 24: Delran, N.J., woman accused of having sex in her apartment with a 14-year-old boy she met in school. She was charged with sexual assault for activity that allegedly took place in August 2004.

    Beth Raymond, 31: Private-school employee from Pownal, Maine, charged with risk of injury to a minor and second-degree sexual assault of a juvenile male at Eagle Hill School in Greenwich, Conn.

    Bethany Sherrill, 24: Daughter-in-law of school-board president charged with molesting a 15-year-old middle-school student. Reports state Sherill allegedly had oral sex with the boy and sent him coded text messages. She resigned her position at Jefferson Elementary School in Farmington, Mo.

    Cameo Patch, 29: Substitute teacher at Tooele High School in Tooele, Utah, arrested for allegedly performing oral sex on a 17-year-old male student. The sexual activity was allegedly consensual, and reportedly took place off school grounds after the pair had exchanged phone numbers in a restaurant.

    Carol Flannigan, 50: Boca Raton, Fla., music teacher reportedly slept with 11-year-old former student, and also had a simultaneous sexual relationship with the boy's father. In a deposition, the boy's father said he had the same sort of sexual relationship with Flannigan that ex-President Bill Clinton had with Monica Lewinsky. In February 2006, Flannigan was sentenced to five years prison as part of a plea deal.

    Adrianne Hockett: Accused of having sex with a 16-year-old special-needs student in a Houston apartment she rented for the get-togethers. The boy has testified the pair would "have sex, drink beer and smoke weed."

    Amber Jennings, 31: Though Jennings was initially charged with having sex with a 16-year-old, the counts against the Sturbridge, Mass., woman were reduced to a single charge of disseminating harmful materials to a minor. She reportedly admitted e-mailing naked photos of herself to a former student.

    Amber Marshall, 23: Northwest Indiana woman allegedly had sexual contact, including intercourse, with several students at Hebron High School, and turned herself into authorities, telling police she knew what she did was illegal.

    Amira Sa'Si, 30: Clayton County, Ga., woman remarked she didn't think her relationship was inappropriate based on her Internet research, learning the Peach State's age of consent is 16.

    Amy Gail Lilley, 36: Inverness, Fla., woman and softball coach at Lecanto High School charged with a lesbian relationship with a 15-year-old girl. She received no prison time, being sentenced to two years of house arrest and eight more years of probation.

    Angela Comer, 26: Middle-school teacher from Tompkinsville, Ky., fled with her alleged lover, her 14-year-old male student, before being tracked down in Mexico where she reportedly planned to marry the boy. She was indicted for illegal sex acts with a minor and returned to Kentucky. Charges include felony custodial interference, two counts of third-degree sodomy and four counts of unlawful transaction with a minor relating to sexual acts.

    Is there a Debra LaFave in your child's school?
    'PREDATORS' exposes today's hidden epidemic of teacher-student sex

    The seemingly endless stream of reports of female school teachers having sex with their ******** male students – most recently the stunning dismissal of charges against Debra LaFave who admitted having sex with a 14-year-old student – is one of today's most sensational news stories.

    In fact, a recent, federally funded study concludes the problem of school teachers molesting students dwarfs in magnitude the clergy sex-abuse scandal that rocked the Catholic Church.

    Now, in a groundbreaking investigation, the newest edition of WND's elite monthly Whistleblower magazine – titled "PREDATORS: What's really behind today's epidemic of teacher-student sex?" – explores as never before this troubling new phase in the "sexual revolution."

    "This Whistleblower edition goes way beyond the sensationalism of these stories," says WND Managing Editor David Kupelian, author of "The Marketing of Evil." "Our report shines a thousand-watt spotlight on this sexual epidemic and reveals the real dynamics behind it. It's an amazing story full of mind-boggling information and insights."

    Did you know that some judges do not consider statutory rape a crime?

    When 43-year-old teacher Pamela Diehl-Moore tearfully pleaded guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old male student, New Jersey Superior Court Judge Bruce A. Gaeta sentenced her to probation, saying: "I really don't see the harm that was done here and certainly society doesn't need to be worried. I do not believe she is a sexual predator. It's just something between two people that clicked beyond the teacher-student relationship. … And don't forget, this was mutual consent "

    Did you know that many of the offending teachers don't see anything wrong with what they're doing, and that some actually end up being rewarded for their behavior?

    Mary Kay Letourneau, after serving time in prison for "child rape," got a $200,000 advance on a book deal (titled "Only One Crime, Love"), had a TV movie made about her life, and received a reported $750,000 from a tabloid TV show for the video footage of her 2004 wedding to the schoolboy she had seduced years earlier.

    Do you know how prevalent teacher sexual exploitation of students actually is, according to experts?

    According to a major 2004 study commissioned by the U.S. Department of Education – by far the most in-depth investigation to date – millions of children might be victims of sexual misconduct by teachers or other public school employees. In fact, says the study's author, Charol Shakeshaft, professor of educational administration at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., the figures suggest "the physical sexual abuse of students in schools is likely more than 100 times the abuse by priests."

    "This is an incredible journalistic exposé of a major, vastly under-reported and poorly understood scandal in our nation," said WND Editor and CEO Joseph Farah. "Read it – and you'll learn a great deal about what's really happening to our nation, to our families, to our children. And most important, you'll learn how to protect your loved ones from manipulators and predators who masquerade as friends, as ministers, as coaches … even as school teachers."

    You seem to have an issue with women engaging in sexual activities with boys ages 14 - 17. Aside from the fact that this is virtually every school boy's dream, don't act shocked you savages... you know you would have given your left testicle to sleep with one of your teachers... aside from this simple item of common knowledge there is a huge difference between a man having sex with an under age girl and a woman having sex with an under age boy. There is the [in general] absence of force and intimidation and violence. I would bet that the boys were virtually all willing. It is the breaking of the law on paper.

    With girls who are the victim... it is completely different and I put forth that we enact the death penalty to the male perpetrators in cases of forced, violent unoncenting acts of sex with under age girls.

    No, I dislike perps of either gender- I have no bias against women in this thread, or otherwise- just people that assault others, especially children.

    You can't rape the willing, and there is a hell of a difference between a 17 year old (male or female) and a 14 year old. Go ask your female friends how many men they slept with when they were under age. Over half will say they slept with an 18-20 year old when they were 16-17.

    There is a big difference between breaking the law on paper and the reality of true violence and assault.

    The reality is that power is used to rape all the time. Just ask clinton. It is called coercion and it is just as much a violation as any other rape. This is the final liberal frontier and the way this debate is going on this thread is exactly how it will go until it is finally legal to have sex with children. You go, libs!!

    Because these are women perpetrators does not make it right. Are you suggesting that these laws need to be changed so that it is legal for adults to have sex with children as long as they are male children? What about male teachers? Should they be able to legally have sex with students as long as they are male students? Let's draw a line SOMEWHERE.

    "You can't rape the willing"??? What about date-rape drugs? What about a ten year old? This is EXACTLY the line of thought used by nambla. So if a six year old kid wants to sleep with an adult it should be okay, right? This is also the line that libs will use to eventually legalize everything. It demonstrates a stunning lack of any moral center, any sense of 'right and wrong'.

    Re: Pervert Abusers Need Punishment

    Fair enough. All this makes my blood boils, and I definitely do not want anyone to think I am not fair- I just happened to stumble upon the female teacher offender list at the bottom of an article about one head-case abuser...thought it would be a good post, to get people thinking. People need to know what is going on, and not think, "oh it possibly couldn't happen to my child..."

    Liberal judges should be reprimanded, ousted, or something - this type of abuse should be strictly punished, for any child that is abused in this manner, whether the perp is rich or poor, in a position of authority or not, from the right or left, conservative or otherwise, male or female, white, or of color- there should be no double-standards or ease of sentence for anybody. Victims are scarred for life, whether male or female.


    Dirty Secrets: Why sexually abusive teachers aren't stopped

    A small but dangerous contingent of sexual predators lurks among the dedicated teachers in our nation's classrooms

    Sunday, October 31, 1999

    By Jane Elizabeth Zemel and Steve Twedt, Post-Gazette Staff Writers

    First of a three part series. Story and picture at:

    Justin Kelly, with his mother, Kim Shrum, was 13 years old when his La Porte, Texas, homeroom teacher and football coach molested him. Michael J. Kluck was convicted of felony sex offenses. Justin, now 18, is suing the Nebraska school district that earlier had allowed Kluck to resign quietly after he was accused of misconduct there. (Brett Coomer, Associated Press)

    Children are often taught in school to look out for adults who might hurt them. But sometimes, the grown-ups in their own classrooms are the ones who could do the most harm.

    Sexual misconduct by educators is a volatile, sensitive subject that's been whispered about in school hallways and behind closed office doors as long as there have been schools. But a lack of public acknowledgment has helped the problem to spread and the bad teachers to circulate.

    It's a problem that resonates nationally, but accusations of sexual misconduct also have appeared recently in Pittsburgh-area schools.

    Joseph Doherty, an Avonworth School District teacher, was cleared of criminal charges but resigned under pressure after being accused of sexually assaulting a student in 1997. He was able to get a teaching job in Maryland this year even though Avonworth school officials had sent his case to the state Department of Education for review.

    Dennis L. Bair, a music teacher in Burgettstown Area School District, Washington County, was convicted in June 1997 on two counts of indecent assault of a female student. However, he was allowed to surrender his license last year rather than have it revoked. That action effectively sealed his records and could enable him to teach again outside the state.

    Gary Serlo taught elementary school in Westmoreland County in the early 1970s before being sent to a Greensburg prison in 1974 for child molestion. His license to teach in Pennsylvania wasn't revoked until last year, though, when he was convicted of molesting three boys in his new school district in New York. Because of an incomplete background check, school officials who hired Serlo never knew that he had served prison time for molestation.

    Larry Mihalko, an elementary school teacher in Gateway School District, was charged earlier this year with indecent assault and other crimes. The charges stem from allegations brought by former students -- three pre-teen girls -- who have testified that Mihalko had improperly touched them while they were sitting on his lap, including putting his hand under their clothing.

    Mihalko's attorney has said that hugging, patting and holding students on his lap was part of Mihalko's teaching style. Mihalko's trial is scheduled to begin in January.

    Re: Pervert Abusers Need Punishment

    Accused teachers represent a small percentage of our nation's educators. But those who do abuse students often abuse more than one, and the damage they do can be devastating.

    The Post-Gazette has examined 727 cases across the U.S. in which an educator has lost his or her license for sex offenses during the past five years, and has found some disturbing trends. Among them:

    The number of teachers who have lost their licenses because of sex offenses has increased nearly 80 percent since 1994.

    Several of those who lost their licenses were caught only after they had been molesting students for many years.

    Offending teachers sometimes get help landing another teaching job from a unexpected source -- their former bosses. The practice is so well-known among educators that they refer to it by name. They call it "passing the trash."

    Individual states' aggressiveness in detecting and removing predators from the classroom varies widely, and some states do no background checks on teacher applicants at all. There is a private, national clearinghouse that tracks problem teachers but its director admits that states' reporting can be spotty, leaving everyone vulnerable to the so-called "mobile molester."

    Even when caught, offending teachers can launch appeals that allow them to retain their teaching certificate for two to three more years. In some cases, those teachers have moved to another state and used that certificate to get a new teaching job until their appeals run out.

    Weak communication between the education and criminal branches of state governments means that education officials don't always find out if a teacher has been arrested for sex crimes or other offenses. In one case, Missouri education officials had to send a license-revocation order to a Kansas man who had already begun serving a 90-year sentence for raping a teen-aged girl.

    Striking again

    Rumors and accusations that William C. Bennett was sexually abusing his male students first surfaced in the early 1980s, when he was teaching in a school in Virginia.

    They finally ended at a high school in Akron, Ohio, earlier this year.

    Bennett, a guidance counselor, pleaded guilty in May in a case that charged him with having sex with students -- even in his school office.

    "If you have ever had a recurring nightmare, then you can probably relate to the last year-and-a-half of my life," one of his victims told the judge at Bennett's trial.

    Bennett is now serving a year in jail, has surrendered his teaching certificates, and is registered as a sexual predator. He will never teach again, never devastate another young life.

    Or will he?

    Kenneth Long did. He was arrested twice in Florida, in 1989 and 1990, for offering students money for sex and was put on three years' probation. Yet he was hired in Alexandria, Va., in 1995 when officials there failed to check for a criminal history; then he moved to Washington, D.C., in February 1998.

    In May, a federal grand jury in Washington indicted Long on 35 counts of interstate transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity. The victim was a 14-year-old student. Long's trial is currently under way in Washington.

    Terrible toll

    In Pennsylvania, 38 teachers lost their certificates for sex-related offenses from 1997 through 1998, compared to 21 in the two years before that. But even the growing numbers don't reflect the actual toll, experts say.

    The problem is not so much the number of offending teachers, it's the number of students a single bad teacher can victimize.

    "When they get caught, it's never a case of one act of bad judgment with one child," said Dr. W. Richard Fossey, associate dean of the college of education at Louisiana State University, who has researched teacher discipline cases.

    "If you've caught one, you know that the guy has a history."

    And all too often, the victimizing teacher has help from an unlikely source -- administrators in his own school. Examples are plentiful:

    A Houston-area family has filed suit against a Nebraska school district for allowing a problem teacher to resign, clean out his personnel file and walk away with a letter of recommendation in 1994. Weeks later, he was hired in Texas where, in the first month of classes, he molested their son.

    In South Carolina, a young man molested by his teacher also is suing the teacher's former employer, Porter-Gaud School, and has posted his own web site to bring attention to the issue -- http://www.geocities.com/~shawws.

    According to the suit, Edward Fischer was forced to resign from a private school in Charleston in 1982 after being accused of molesting a student. Yet administrators agreed to write a favorable letter of recommendation for him in exchange for that resignation, and he continued teaching. In April, Fischer, 71, was convicted of molesting 13 boys.

    Four months after teacher Robert Pannier's conduct resulted in a warning against using vulgarity, profanity or sexual innuendo, two administrators in Mendota Heights, Minn., wrote recommendations for him in June 1995. He was hired by another Minnesota school district and taught until early 1998 -- when police arrested him for having sex with a 15-year-old student.

    Doherty, the Avonworth School District teacher who resigned after being accused of sexually assaulting a student in 1997, was able to get a teaching job in Prince George's County, Md., this year even though school officials had sent his case to the state Department of Education for review.

    Although Avonworth school officials knew that Doherty had applied for the job, Maryland school officials said they didn't know about Doherty's arrest until a Post-Gazette reporter called to question them about their knowledge of his background. After the PG's call, school administrators removed him from his classroom while they investigated.

    Doherty had been secretly videotaped by Avonworth officials who had become suspicious of his behavior. On tape, he was seen engaged in what he called "wrestling moves" with a 12-year-old boy in his locked classroom. Even though prosecutors argued that Doherty was obviously sexually aroused in the videotape, the district justice decided that no crime had been committed. The boy and his mother would not testify.

    Pennsylvania officials will not comment on the status of his teaching license.

    Doherty, 39, no longer works in the Maryland district. He has filed a civil lawsuit against the Avonworth School Board, claiming they defamed his character.

    Attitudes vary

    The Post-Gazette study of teacher misconduct also shows that aggressiveness in removing predators from the classroom varies widely from state to state. While Ohio requires state and federal background checks, some states, including West Virginia, conduct no background checks on teacher applicants. Others, including Pennsylvania, perform partial checks. This has implications for all states, because the inconsistency in background checks makes it easier for bad teachers to circulate.

    The Post-Gazette also found that it commonly takes two to three years, and sometimes longer, before education officials catch up to a license revocation made in another state. This sometimes gives the person time to find a teaching job in another state -- at least until their past offenses emerge.

    In 1996, the Oregon agency that oversees teacher certification separately revoked the licenses of two teachers who were accused of making sexual advances toward students. The incidents had occurred as much as 12 years earlier, when the two men were teaching in different school districts in California. As California officials moved to take away their licenses, the two landed jobs in Oregon by falsely stating on their application that they were not under investigation.

    Officials in Oregon learned of the first case when a parent in the teacher's former district tracked his whereabouts, then tipped Oregon officials. They found out about the second teacher when a reporter at a California paper called to ask about his teaching status.

    Too often, a bad teacher is quietly relieved of his or her job, only to show up in another unsuspecting school.

    In William C. Bennett's case, Akron officials said they weren't aware that Bennett had been dismissed from the Virginia school for what school officials called "inappropriate conduct toward a student."

    But after a short time in Akron, he was accused of fondling a 9-year-old boy. The incident was resolved by moving the boy to another elementary school.

    More accusations came from students in 1994, 1996 and 1997, but were dismissed as untrue, although Bennett was moved to the high school.

    Last September, a college student went to school officials and told them Bennett had molested him in high school, and the investigation began that led to his guilty plea.

    Leaving quietly

    Hofstra University professor Charol Shakeshaft, in a 1994 national survey of 225 school superintendents, found that 221 teachers accused of sexual abuse quietly resigned or retired from their district.

    Of those, superintendents were aware of 22 teachers who then were hired in other districts. While they didn't know the whereabouts of the rest, the superintendents conceded that many of those teachers could be employed in other schools "and that it would be easy for them to get other teaching jobs," Shakeshaft said.

    And all but about 1 percent retained their teaching licenses, Shakeshaft said.

    In a 1991 survey of 65 superintendents in North Carolina, a Winston-Salem University professor found 26 cases of sex-related offenses by teachers over the past three years. In 12 cases, the teacher was fired or forced to resign, according to the researcher, Dr. Dan Wishnictsky.

    In the other cases, the teachers were simply reprimanded. Only one case was marked "charges not proven."

    Re: Pervert Abusers Need Punishment

    On average, teachers who molest children have worked in two to three school districts before they're stopped, according to Craig Emanuel, an investigator with the Arizona Department of Education. These are the teachers he calls "the mobile molesters."

    The typical mobile molester case goes like this, he said:

    A teacher who's a sex offender works in a school district "living a double life, until he gets out of control." School officials then learn about the abuse, and ask the teacher to leave quietly, dodging bad publicity and expensive legal proceedings.

    The teacher then moves to another district where he molests more children, and then possibly to yet another district.

    By that time, according to Emanuel's observations, the teacher's victims from the first district get older, wiser, and report the abuse to the police.

    The molester may then be prosecuted, but by that time he could have harmed dozens of children.

    In Pennsylvania, local school districts are encouraged -- but not required -- to report teachers who are forced to resign "for cause." But it doesn't happen often.

    "If a teacher is arrested, convicted, sent to jail, and resigns from his job, and the district doesn't tell us, and it's not in the newspapers, we may never know about it," said education department spokeswoman Michele Haskins. In that case, the teacher's certification would remain intact, allowing them to continue working in classrooms.

    Tide is turning

    When a teacher who has resigned under pressure applies for a job in another school district, often his previous school district will not reveal the problems to the new employer. That's because previous employers -- not only in school districts but in any profession -- are skittish about providing unfavorable references and possibly being sued by the employee.

    However, the legal tide is turning. Previously, said Thomas W. Pickrell, director of legal services for the Arizona School Boards Association, lawyers told clients not to reveal any information about former employees.

    "Now, people are questioning that, and focusing on the social costs of this practice," he said. "The no-comment policy is turning into a more common-sense policy."

    Adding fuel to the "common sense" approach undoubtedly is the fact that more and more abuse victims are suing the school districts that allowed the bad teachers to resign and move to another school.

    One of the most notorious cases involves former band teacher George Crear III, who was featured this month on ABC's "20/20." In 1987, two of Crear's former students in Flint, Mich., went to the Michigan Board of Education and told officials that they had been molested by Crear many years previously.

    But the statute of limitations had expired in their cases, and no criminal charges could be filed. The board simply allowed Crear to resign, and his personnel file was purged.

    Crear then obtained a job as a band teacher at Palmetto High School in Florida, where officials knew nothing of his background. Soon, Crear was facing sexual abuse allegations from at least three girls. One of those students committed suicide.

    In a verdict that surprised even his attorneys, Crear was acquitted in Florida. But almost immediately, another Michigan victim came forward with charges that Crear abused her. Crear now is serving life in prison in Michigan. And a former Florida student who said she was molested by Crear was awarded $720,000 last year in a civil suit against the school district.

    In a California case, a student complained to officials in the Pasadena Unified School District in 1983 about inappropriate advances by track coach Clyde Ezra Turner. The information went into a secret memorandum that didn't surface again until this year, when Turner was sentenced for molesting a 15-year-old boy.

    The teen-ager testified that Turner had invited him to his home, showed him a pornographic video, and then molested him.

    At Turner's trial, three other students testified that Turner molested them more than 15 years ago.

    Until the secret memo was uncovered by prosecutors, school officials denied they knew about any previous incidents involving Turner, who led the track team to five state championships.

    Such teacher misconduct is far from common, acknowledged Bart Zabin, an investigator with the New York State Department of Education. "There are only a small number of bad apples in this wonderful orchard. But saving even one child from an abusive teacher is important," he said.

    One way to prevent abuse, said Arizona's Emanuel, is to stop accepting quiet resignations from teachers "when you yourself would not rehire this person" and to constantly be on the lookout for signs of teacher misconduct.

    A few states even have laws that sanction administrators if they knowingly write a favorable recommendation to get rid of a problem teacher.

    Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia are not among those states.

    "We have to recognize," Emanuel said, "in this profession there are people, child molesters, who will go to any lengths to be with children."
