Substitute teacher, Jennifer McLeod, was arrested for inappropriate sexual contact with a 17-year-old student at Hebron Christian Academy in Valparaiso, Indiana.
According to the unnamed victim, McLeod began by dropping hints that she wished he was older or that she was younger so they could have sex. They kissed on a few occasions and had several long, sexually-explicit phone calls. Some of the inappropriate conversations and contact happened at the school.
This incident follows on the heels of a December case where a teacher had sex with two male students. Haeli Noelle Way even traveled with the family of one of her victims and had sex with him on the trip.
The trend is disturbing. It was shocking when Mary Kay Letourneau did it in 1997. The then 34-year-old became pregnant by her 13-year-old student, Vili Fualaau. Now, the reported numbers of teacher student sexual relationships are outrageous. In 2014, there were 781 reported cases of inappropriate school adult and student relationships.
What do you do if this happened to your child?
