She's "Joshing" You!
Jacksonville, Fla. -- Danielle Reed (pictured left) a teacher at Atlantic Coast High School in Jacksonville, Florida has been arrested on charges she had a sexual relationship with an underage student. The student told police the relationship lasted from March 1 to June 15, 2012. The student told them 23-year-old English teacher Danielle Reed had engaged in both oral sex and sexual intercourse on several occasions.
Police met with the victim last Friday, November 9, 2012. The victim told police he and Reed had planned to spend the night together, but they knew the student’s mother would not allow it. The student then made up a friend named “Josh” and pretended to spend the night at his house. Reed then went to the victim’s home with her black Labrador, Dexter, and pretended to be Josh’s mother. The victim was then allowed to leave with Reed.
Detectives brought Reed to the Police Memorial Building to be interviewed. They asked her about her living situation, and she said she lived alone with the exception of Dexter. She was then arrested and charged with two counts of sexual battery on a victim older than 12 but under 18. The police report said the victim admitted to telling their mother about the sexual relationship with Reed about a month ago. The mother later told the same story about Reed posing as “Josh’s” mother.
Nikolai Vitti, Superintendent of Duval County Schools, released the following statement:
“I am deeply troubled by the allegations of sexual misconduct by a teacher. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the alleged victim. This behavior is not representative of the more than 8,000 teachers in our classrooms who are positive role models for our students.”
Johnson said Vitti will be recommending Reed be suspended without pay pending termination at the December 4 School Board meeting. Danielle Reed is being held in the Duval County Pretrial Detention Facility on $150,003 bond. Her next court date is scheduled for December 3.
ACHS head football coach Kevin Sullivan told media sources that the school’s staff was told the victim was a student. The student was not, however, one of Sullivan’s football players.

Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor notified school alumni in the wake of allegations that associate head basketball coach Bernie Fine molested two former ball boys, starting in the late 1970s and continuing into the 1990s. Cantor reiterated a statement Syracuse made Thursday night. In it, the school said: "In 2005, Syracuse University was contacted by an adult male who told us that he had reported to the Syracuse City Police that he had been subjected to inappropriate contact by an associate men's basketball coach. The alleged activity took place in the 1980s and 1990s. We were informed by the complainant that the Syracuse City Police had declined to pursue the matter because the statute of limitations had expired. On hearing of the allegations in 2005, the university immediately launched its own comprehensive investigation through its legal counsel. That nearly four-month-long investigation included a number of interviews with people the complainant said would support his claims. All of those identified by the complainant denied any knowledge of wrongful conduct by the associate coach. The associate coach also vehemently denied the allegations." Fine was placed on administrative leave by the school Thursday night "in light of the new allegations."
The two ball boys, Bobby Davis (now 39) and Mike Lang (now 45 and a step-brother of Davis) told media sources that Fine sexually abused them at his home, at the Syracuse basketball facilities and on road trips, including the 1987 Final Four in New Orleans. In on-camera interviews with media sources, Davis said he was sexually abused "hundreds of times" and said that when he resisted, Fine would become more aggressive. Asked why he didn't come forward during the 16 years he said Fine molested and sexually abused him, Davis said: "I honestly didn't think anybody would believe me." His step-brother, Lang, told media sources that Fine was like "a god to you. He can do whatever he wants." He said Fine touched his genitals "probably 15, 20 times."
Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim defended his 35-year assistant in a series of media interviews. On Thursday when both men spoke in on-camera interviews with media sources, describing what they said were encounters with Fine that included reaching into their shorts and rubbing their genitals. "I didn't feel right about it," Lang said. "And I told him, 'Bernie, please don't do that to me.'" Davis told media sources that Boeheim saw him in Fine's hotel room on several of those road trips, but Davis said he never told Boeheim about the alleged abuse. Davis said sexual contact with Fine continued until he was around 27.
Davis said he reported the abuse to Syracuse police in 2003, but that a detective told him that the statute of limitations had run out. The statute of limitations in New York is five years from the last instance of sexual contact. Syracuse police said Thursday night they are investigating the claims, including meeting with both men. Syracuse campus police also opened an investigation. Syracuse police stressed to media sources that they are in the early stages of the investigation.

STOCKTON, Calif. (WCJB) — A high school teacher is under investigation after school officials said she was maintaining a pornographic website from her school-issued laptop computer. Lincoln High School teacher Heidi Kaeslin is on paid leave while the district investigates whether she violated its code of ethics, local media sources reported.
The investigation also involves former Stockton police officer Richard Fields, who was assigned to the school as a resource officer. He told the newspaper he had acquired domain names including mysluttyteachers.com to develop them into websites. Fields said Kaeslin's involvement was limited, and he eventually abandoned the venture. The source reports that one of the websites was active for only one day in February, which could indicate a test run. Fields said the allegations are overblown. Kaeslin and her attorney declined to comment.
Kaeslin, a special education teacher and former girls soccer coach, has been with the district since 2002. Fields retired from the police department in May. The two are romantically linked, according to the paper.
Lincoln Unified School District has hired a computer expert to study the content on the laptop. An attorney representing the district, said the school adopted an ethics code in 2003. The code calls for teachers to "adhere to the highest ethical standards" and "to attain and maintain the highest possible degree of ethical conduct," he told the source. "The code says that for breaches to constitute "unprofessional conduct," they must "involve jeopardy to student welfare; evidence malice, serious incompetency or bad judgment; or show a consistent pattern of misconduct."
Penn State: Pedophiles! Paterno's Lungs!

Happy Valley (WCJB) -- Joe Paterno, the Penn State football coach who lost his job amid allegations of child sex abuse against his former defensive coordinator, has a treatable form of lung cancer, his son said Friday. The family learned of the diagnosis after Paterno's follow-up visit last weekend for a bronchial illness, Scott Paterno said. "He is currently undergoing treatment, and his doctors are optimistic that he will make a full recovery," Scott Paterno said in a statement. "As everyone can appreciate, this is a deeply personal matter for my parents, and we simply ask that his privacy be respected as he proceeds with treatment." Paterno, 84, the all-time winningest football coach in Division I history, was fired last week amid the outcry over the handling of the abuse claims. Paterno, who served 46 years as head coach in State College, was known to generations of football fans simply as JoePa.
Posted: 11/17/2011 01:40:25 PM PDT Updated: 11/17/2011 01:00:27 PM PDT Happy Valley, PA -- The judge who let busted former Penn State defensive coach Jerry Sandusky out of jail earlier this month on $100,000 unsecured bail has done volunteer work for the charity Sandusky founded, according to media sources. Sandusky reportedly used his Second Mile charity, which reached out to needy children, to connect with some of his alleged victims. The state attorney general had demanded $500,000 in bail after Sandusky was charged with 40 counts of sexually abusing young boys. He also asked District Judge Leslie Dutchcot (pictured above, center-right) to order that Sandusky be outfitted with an electronic leg monitor, but Dutchcot only ordered Sandusky not to have contact with children. Judge Dutchcot was not immediately available to comment on her links to the charity. In a swift move from the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts (AOPC), the judge slated to hear Jerry Sandusky’s preliminary hearing has been replaced with an out-of-county judge, the office announced late Wednesday. The decision to replace District Judge Leslie Dutchcot comes on the heels of urgings from lawmakers and elected officials in Pennsylvania — namely, State Rep. Mike Vereb (R-150th of Montgomery County), who spearheaded the campaign calling for Dutchcot to recuse herself. Campaign finance reports leaked Tuesday indicated Dutchcot was an avid supporter of The Second Mile — Sandusky’s charity — and that the charity’s chairperson donated thousands of dollars to Dutchcot’s campaign and vice versa. “Due to the unique circumstances surrounding this case, it was essential that every precaution be taken to ensure all legal proceedings occur without the appearance of bias on the part of the judicial system,” said Vereb. Vereb said he was compelled to act by writing letters to the Attorney General and the Chief Justice of Pennsylvania. In the letters, Vereb asks that Dutchcot be replaced because of her history with The Second Mile. Vereb claims that campaign finance forms show Dutchcot’s contributions to The Second Mile and Second Mile Chairman Robert Poole was a political donor to Dutchcot when she ran for her judicial office. “With this particular case, it would have been extremely difficult to find a judge without some connection to Penn State, The Second Mile or any alleged victims. Assigning the case to an out-of-county judge takes away any hint of bias or conflict of interest.” Judge Robert E. Scott, a senior judge from Westmoreland County, will oversee Sandusky’s preliminary hearing. The AOPC affirms Scott has no ties with Pennsylvania State University, The Second Mile charity or any “officers or representatives of any of those entities,” a press release read.
Judging The Second Mile! Penn State: Secrecy!
"We anticipate we're going to have at least several of those kids come forward and say 'This never happened. This is me. This is the allegation. It never occurred.' The attorney also said that his client was just behaving like 'a jock.' Jerry Sandusky is a big overgrown kid. He's a jock, and for anybody who's ever played sports, you get showers after you work out." -- Ex-Penn State Asst. football coach Jerry Sandusky's Attorney explaining the (then 58 year old) former Penn State assistant coach's conduct in the Penn State showers with a 10-year-old boy.November 16, 2011
"What that means in essence is that while every other commonwealth agency, governor's office, police departments, townships, school districts ...are subject to this law and would be required to provide public record, Penn State is exempt. That came as a result of a series of lobbying efforts through the House of Representatives that was taking a look at rewriting Pennsylvania's right to know law, which was really among the worst in the nation and at that juncture the president of Penn State was one of the key lobbyists testifying before the House committee on I believe it was August 7, 2007 seeking an exemption for Penn State." -- Terry Mutchler, executive director of the Pennsylvania Open RecordsIn 2007, the Pennsylvania legislature was discussing a new law called the, "Open Records Act." Penn State's president personally went to the legislature and asked that Penn State be exempt from this law to make sure that Penn State public records were kept private. Public records are the type of records containing information we'd normally get in the United States from any public institution, especially a police department's records, including incident reports. Penn State's public records contain all the information you'd rely on to get the facts to know who knew what, when; where; how, [when and where they came to know it]; and why [they did what they did, or didn't do].
November 16, 2011 Mike McQueary did not report his allegations of child sexual abuse against Jerry Sandusky to the State College police department, Chief Tom King said Wednesday. McQueary has stated in a grand jury report that he saw a boy, whose age he estimated at 10 years old, "being subjected to anal intercourse" by a naked Sandusky, then the Nittany Lions defensive coordinator, in a shower at the Penn State football building in March 2002. Facing public criticism for a perceived lack of action during the incident, McQueary said in an email obtained by Allentown (Pa.) media sources that he "did have discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police." Penn State has its own police force, and administrators are looking into whether McQueary made contact with that department. According to the grand jury report, McQueary (pictured left) left "immediately," was "distraught" and called his father. His father told him to leave the building and come to his home. McQueary did report the incident to his then-coach Joe Paterno the next day and later met with athletic director Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, vice president for finance and business. Curley and Schultz have been chargedwith perjury and failure to report. Curley was placed on administrative leave, and Schultz, who oversaw university police, returned to retirement. Paterno (pictured below, center) was fired last week by the university's Board of Trustees. McQueary, now a wide receivers coach for the Nittany Lions, has been placed on administrative leave. (Penn State football coach Joe Paterno arrives home Nov. 9, 2011, in State College, Pa.) Sandusky is charged with 40 counts of sexual abuse of children and is free on $100,000 bail.

Penn State: More Victims!
"I am innocent of those charges," Sandusky said. "... I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact." -- Ex-Penn State Assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky responding to media questions surrounding allegations of his molesting multiple other minor boys on the Penn State Campus.NEW YORK - Additional suspected victims of the former Penn State assistant football coach at the heart of a massive sex scandal have come forward to authorities since his arrest, a source familiar with the investigation told media sources. The source did not provide the number of alleged victims but said that they are being vetted by Pennsylvania State Police. East coast media sources reported earlier the number of alleged new victims is around 10. The new accusations come as Jerry Sandusky (pictured above, center) said he showered with young boys and hugged them but called the allegedly criminal contact "horseplay." Sandusky has been formally accused of sexually assaulting eight boys over a 15-year span, with some of the alleged crimes happening at Penn State, where he had access to campus as an emeritus professor following his 1999 retirement as coaching legend Joe Paterno's top defensive assistant. Sandusky, in a televised interview on Monday night said that he was not a pedophile but, in retrospect, should not have showered with the boys he's charged with sexually assaulting. In an another interview, Sandusky, once considered the heir apparent to Paterno, proclaimed his innocence in the face of a series of startling allegations detailed in a grand jury report issued last week. "I am innocent of those charges," Sandusky said. "... I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact." Asked whether he was sexually attracted to underage boys, he said "sexually attracted, no. I enjoy young people, I love to be around them, but, no, I'm not sexually attracted to young boys." The interview was Sandusky's first public comment on the charges. He had previously maintained his innocence through his attorney. Asked if there was anything he had done wrong, Sandusky said, "I shouldn't have showered with those kids." When pressed about how two people could claim to have witnessed Sandusky engaged in sexual contact with boys on two different occasions, Sandusky replied that "you'd have to ask" them. The scandal has hit hard the community called Happy Valley, where "success with honor" is the motto. Paterno and University President Graham Spanier have lost their jobs and Athletic Director Tim Curley (pictured left) and senior vice president Gary Schultz, 62 (pictured below, left) face perjury charges. "We anticipate we're going to have at least several of those kids come forward and say 'This never happened. This is me. This is the allegation. It never occurred,'" Sandusky's attorney said during the interview. The attorney also said that his client was just behaving like "a jock. Jerry Sandusky is a big overgrown kid. He's a jock, and for anybody who's ever played sports, you get showers after you work out." Sandusky told media sources there was no sexual contact. "We were showering and horsing around, and he actually turned all the showers on and was actually sliding across the floor, and we were, as I recall, possibly like snapping a towel — horseplay," he said. Wide receivers coach Mike McQueary told a grand jury that in March 2001 when he was a graduate assistant, he saw Sandusky sodomizing a boy about 10 years old in a shower at the Nittany Lions' practice center. McQueary did not go to police but instead told Paterno, Curley and Schultz, although it is unclear how detailed a description he gave. Schultz, in turn, notified Spanier. When Sandusky retired in 1999, at just 55, he cited his desire to devote more time to The Second Mile, a charity he founded in 1977 to help at-risk kids. According to the grand jury report, however, Sandusky was a sexual predator who used the charity and his Penn State connections to prey on young boys. (Read more on The Second Mile below ...) Another additional new victim is also claiming another member of the Penn State faculty sexually abused him years ago, and he said when he brought his abuse complaints to university officials, he was turned away. Paul McLaughlin (pictured left) who is now in his mid-40s, told media sources that now-retired Penn State professor John “Jack” Neisworth, who is a nationally acclaimed voice on child development, sexually abused him in the late 1970s to early ’80s when he was between the ages of 11 and 15. McLaughlin said, after repressing the memories of his alleged abuse, that he decided to confront Neisworth over the phone in 2001 as part of his therapy. He tape-recorded the conversation, in which he claims that the professor admitted to performing oral sex on him. “I was in the process of trying to get him to open up about some of the sexual acts and what not, and he actually interrupted me and says, ‘Do you remember driving up on the hill?’” McLaughin said. “I said, ‘Wasn’t that the first time you went down on me?’ He said, ‘I don’t know if it was the first time but it was certainly fierce,’ was his words.” Over the course of a few months from the end of 2001 into early 2002, McLaughlin said he sent his taped conversation with Neisworth to university officials, but each time he was “rejected.”

Penn State: Paid Silence!
"I shouldn't have showered with those kids." -- Ex-Penn State Assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky responding to media questions surrounding allegations of his molesting a 10-year-old boy in the Penn State showersCorrupt Justice™: In 2002, Mike McQueary, a graduate student assistant, witnessed ex Penn State Assistant Coach, Jerry Sandusky raping a 10 year old boy in a campus locker room. McQueary first told his father about the incident, then the next day informed Penn State Coach Joe Paterno, and then ten days later met with other university officials. Paterno is said to have notified athletic director Tim Curley and school vice president Gary Schultz about the alleged rape. McQueary then met with Curley and Schultz. Before the Grand Jury Curley denied that McQueary had reported anything of a sexual nature, calling it “merely `horsing around,”’ according to the 23-page grand jury report. Schultz told the grand jury he also knew of a 1998 investigation involving sexually inappropriate behavior by Sandusky with a boy in the showers the football team used. However, despite his job overseeing campus police, he never reported the 2002 allegations to any authorities, “never sought or received a police report on the 1998 incident and never attempted to learn the identity of the child in the shower in 2002. No one from the university did so.” the jurors wrote. McQueary also failed to notify any external law enforcement officials. From the period of 2002 through 2011, McQueary remained absolutely silent, even though he continued to witness Jerry Sandusky on the Penn State Campus, in the unsupervised presence and company of minor boys. Mike McQueary was then hired as the Penn State Wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator in 2004. Happy Valley, Pennsylvania (WCJB) -- Penn State president Rodney Erickson says Mike McQueary (pictured left) an assistant coach now on administrative leave who was a graduate student assistant when he allegedly witnessed sex abuse at the school in 2002, wasn't fired last week because "legal issues" are in play. McQueary allegedly saw retired Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulting a child in the shower in a school locker room. Sandusky is accused of assaulting eight boys over 15 years, and denies the charges. When asked why Joe Paterno, the iconic Penn State head football coach was fired and not McQueary, Erickson said McQueary's situation was "different." He said, "The board, last Wednesday night, felt that they had to take decisive action, and they did."

Posted: October 04, 2011 - 5:57 PM - Updated: November 9, 2011 - 10:51 AM PDT Level Plains, Ala. -- Dale County authorities have arrested a Geneva man and charged him with molesting a girl at the daycare facility where he worked. Chief Dale County Sheriff’s Investigator Harvey Mathis said he arrested 30-year-old James D. Kelly (pictured left) and charged him with felony sex abuse of a child under the age of 12. Mathis said Kelly turned himself in to sheriff’s officials on Monday evening. Mathis said the offense allegedly happened during the month of August at the daycare facility where Kelly works in Level Plains. Mathis declined to name the business. He said the victim of the alleged sexual assault was a 2-year-old Enterprise girl. According to a statement from Mathis, a warrant for Kelly’s arrest was issued by the Dale County District Attorney’s Office after the girl was interviewed at the Southeast Alabama Child Advocacy Center in Dothan. Kelly was taken to the Dale County Jail and held on $30,000 bail, which Mathis said was set by District Court Judge Stan Garner. If convicted, Kelly faces two to 20 years in prison for the class B felony crime of sex abuse of a child under the age of 12. Mathis said the Dale County Sheriff’s Department has an ongoing investigation into the case. Anyone with information can call the Dale County Sheriff’s Office at (334) 774-2335. “Personally, I haven’t worked any cases like this before, not involving a daycare,” Mathis said. “Just the setting here made it unusual because of where it happened.”

Posted: August 23, 2011 - Updated: November 9, 2011 - 10:51 AM PDT Newberg, OR -- A 50-year-old Portland man was arrested last week in Newberg after he was found lying naked in a sleeping bag with a 15-year-old male near an elementary school. A Newberg-Dundee police officer responded at about 4:25 a.m. on Aug 17 to an athletic field next to Edwards Elementary School and found Robert Charles Kenneth (pictured left) with the teenager and a small amount of marijuana and methamphetamine. Kenneth told officers he met the teenager on Craigslist two months ago, said Captain Jeff Kosmicki of the Newberg-Dundee Police Department. Kenneth was charged with third-degree sexual abuse, public indecency, third-degree rape and attempted sodomy, in addition to drug-related charges. He was booked in the Yamhill County Correctional Facility.
Posted: 08/23/2011 01:27:33 PM PDT Updated: 08/23/2011 01:27:34 PM PDT SANTA CRUZ, CA -- A former county middle school teacher was sentenced Monday to 17 years in state prison for molesting a student. Stephen Jay Sande (pictured left) a 61-year-old Santa Cruz resident, was sentenced for acts that occurred when the girl was 12 and 13. He was arrested July 12, 2010, after the victim confided in her mother. Investigators said the abuse went on for weeks in spring and summer, at locations on and off the South County campus. Sande admitted in April to more than 15 charges. At the sentencing hearing, he apologized and said he deserved to be punished, and that his "soul was swallowed up in shame and grief." Urging the maximum sentence, the victim's parents told Judge Jeff Almquist that their daughter lives with significant emotional pain and fear and that they don't know how much she will recover. In a letter from the victim read in court, she said she hated and feared him. She wrote that she was once in his car, stopped at a red light, and saw a friend of her mother's and wanted to jump out and run to that woman. But she was afraid. The victim's family, who the Sentinel is not naming to protect the identity of the victim, said Sande told the young teen he might kill himself if she told anyone. Her mother said she hoped her daughter would be remembered for being the one who stopped him. "How could my daughter be molested by a teacher and have to hold onto that for so long?" she said. " ...Steve Sande is a predator; he's a threat to the community." She read a letter Sande had written to her daughter, in which Sande wrote the student had his heart and love forever. Outside court, the girl's father said the sentence was not long enough because Sande had such wide access to children. The father said he wants to work to prevent such predatory "grooming" of children by adults in positions of trust. "But there is some closure, and we are getting him off the streets," the father said. Sande's attorney said his client admitted his guilt early, sought counseling and was genuinely remorseful. Judge Jeff Almquist said sentencing was an "extremely difficult" decision. He said he had seen middle school teachers regress somewhat to cope with students at such a challenging age. But there are boundaries that cannot be crossed, Almquist said, despite Sande's clean record and success in life. "This is both an abhorrent crime and apparently an aberrant one," he said. Sande had told Almquist he would give his life to take away what he had done. In his closing remark - as Almquist decided between less than 10 years to more than 30 years - the prosecutor reminded the judge of Sande's statement about giving his life. His attorney mentioned Sande's possible brain damage from a 2005 auto accident, and a family member's theory about possible male menopause. At least four well-known psychologists concluded Sande is not a predator or a pedophile, his attorney said. Sande's wife said her husband's behavior had changed and was "nothing like the honorable man I've known for 36 years." Corrupt Justice™: The term pedophilia denotes the erotic preference for prepubescent children. The term hebephilia has been proposed to denote the erotic preference for pubescent children (roughly, ages 11 or 12-14), but it has not become widely used.

Posted: 08/17/2011 07:58:25 AM PDT Updated: 11/09/2011 11:06:27 AM PDT VALLEJO, CA -- A Vallejo special education kindergarten teacher has been ordered to stand trial on charges that he raped an 18-year-old developmentally disabled teacher's aide. Solano County Superior Court Judge Tim Kam concluded on Monday that there was enough evidence for the case against 56-year-old Jerry Johnson (pictured left) to go to trial. Johnson is accused of attacking the 18-year-old during school hours at the end of February at Loma Vista Elementary School, where he taught. Prosecutors say Johnson is also facing an enhancement of great bodily injury because the girl is pregnant. He has pleaded not guilty. Local media sources reported that the decision came at the end of a preliminary hearing. Police say Johnson allegedly raped the 18-year-old student aide who assisted him with other developmentally disabled children. According to authorities, although the woman is 18, she has the mental capacity of a 7-year-old. Her parents reported the alleged rape in June (2011). The crime happened on the Loma Vista Elementary campus during school hours sometime in February, according to media reports. The woman's parents brought her into the police department in early June to report that Johnson, who teaches special education, had raped her. Police say that because of her mental incapacity, she is not able to give consent to sex with an adult. Apparently, Johnson already knew that. "He didn't seem too surprised by the arrest," Lieutenant Eric Mortenson told media sources. "It's a heinous crime. I can't account why he wouldn't be shocked. He's in a position of trust with this young lady as well as other young children. "One of our concerns is there may be other victims," he says.

Posted: 08/17/2011 07:58:25 AM PDT Updated: 11/09/2011 11:06:27 AM PDT PALMDALE, CA (WCJB) — A campus sex scandal in Palmdale: a 35-year-old teacher’s aide is accused of having sex with a 13-year-old student in a classroom. The incident allegedly happened during an after-school tutoring program and it all came to light after a relative of the boy got a look at this cell phone. The suspect, Holly Polson, worked at Shadow Hills Middle School, and police said it was there that the woman had sex with the young boy inside a vacant classroom. “Detectives interviewed her and during the course of that interview she confessed to several instances of having sexual intercourse with this 13-year-old victim,” said Sgt. Brian Hudson of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Investigators told media sources that relatives of the boy found suggestive text messages from Polson on his phone. When the boy was confronted, he admitted to what had happened. Polson told investigators that she was falling in love. “She professed to the detectives that she was developing feelings for him over a period of the month prior,” said Hudson. No one answered at Polson’s home, but a woman that neighbor’s later identified as Polson’s mother told media sources in tears that she had no comment when asked if she knew of Polson’s arrest. Other neighbors who have children in Shadow Hills couldn’t believe the news. “It’s kind of just crazy to live on this block, I don’t know, for something like that to happen, you never know what neighbors you have, what kind of neighbors,” said Eddie Carranza. Polson is still in jail on $100,000 bail. She faces four felony counts of lewd acts with a child, and if found guilty, she must also register as a sex offender.

Mark Stephen Hubbard, 51 (pictured left) has been sentenced to nine years in prison for sexual activity with an underage student. Hubbard pleaded no contest to one count each of sexual intercourse with a minor, sodomy of a person under 18 and eight counts of oral copulation of a person under 18. Authorities would not reveal the gender or age of the victim, except to say the youth was a high school student. Hubbard faces nine years in state prison when he is sentenced on April 1. Hubbard is also expected to be ordered to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Hubbard was a teacher at Hillcrest Christian School in Granada Hills for eight years and served as health teacher, athletic director and assistant coach for the boys basketball and baseball teams. He was arrested late last year in connection with the crimes that occurred between April and November 2010. School spokesman Rick Donnelly said last December that Hubbard had been placed on leave pending the outcome of the case.
