In December 2016, Reddy gave the student her cell phone number and then added him on Snapchat, according to the police records. The student said in February 2017 he received messages from Reddy saying, “I want your hands on me.”
While the age of consent in New Jersey is 16, the law states it is illegal for a person who has authority over the victim, such as a teacher, to have sex with them. So there you go.
Again to parents, check your kid’s Snapchat account and make sure your child can reasonably explain who is on their friends list. No teacher needs to be contacting a student in a way that circumvents the parents unless that child is in physical danger from one of his guardians.
Conversely to what I asked in my last post, why do these teachers want to be with teenage boys? For the most part, they’re gawky and awkward and they almost always brag to a friend, or the whole school. Not to mention it’s technically a form of rape that could negatively affect these kids mentally and socially for the rest of their lives.
And all the bros who say “I wish I had a teacher like that when I was in school” need to grow the fuck up.
48-year-old Chad Laverne Laughlin, of Noel, Missouri, was arrested in Miami, Ohio, when he was caught allegedly making out with a 14-year-old girl at a public library. It turns out that Laughlin was said to have bought the girl a cell phone so he could communicate with the girl on Kik. Her parents had no idea the girl had this phone. The pair reportedly had exchanged explicit pictures of themselves on Kik and had been communicating since the girl was 13. One disturbing message from Laughlin shows how far he was willing to go to be with the girl…
On June 1, Laughlin texted her, “Kitten, I may have found a way, you can even still go to school, but we have to get you a passport… We can emigrate to Israel, you’re 100 percent legal there… 14 is the age of consent.”
Great plan there Captain Pedo. It’s not like you wouldn’t be pursued for international kidnapping. Not to mention the fact the US has had an extradition treaty with Israel since the early 1960s.
However, this story takes an extreme left turn when, while investigating Laughlin, police found that the girl was being pursued by another predator, 25-year-old Dannon Lane Trujillo of Miami. Trujillo was ever so classy when messaging the girl…
“You want to be *** raped at the library. Don’t you?”
What a romantic.
You know, I wonder if the girl messaged Trujillo using the same phone that Laughlin bought her.
While this girl may have made some poor life choices, she is still a victim. A 14-year-old girl can not legally consent to sex anywhere in this country. We can only hope she learns from her mistakes now before her life goes down an even more dangerous path.
If it wasn’t for Kik, I could rename this site ‘Teachers and Snapchat’, but I digress.
30-year-old Brock Smith, of Naples, Florida is accused of allegedly using photo sharing apps Snapchat and Instagram in an attempt to lure teenage girls for sex. Smith is a teacher at a local high school. Before you ask, no, it was not with one of his students. In a 2016 incident, Smith allegedly messaged a 17-year-old girl over Snapchat saying he would visit her where she worked. If that wasn’t creepy enough, Smith ‘had sex’ with the girl in the workplace’s bathroom. He then stopped communicating with the girl.
In a more recent event, Smith is accused of messaging a 16-year-old on Instagram and asking her to add him on Snapchat. The conversation soon turned sexual and Smith allegedly sent the girl explicit pictures of himself. He is also said to have messaged the girl saying he was “free in the mornings to meet for sex” and mentioned the girl could come over when his wife was away. What a class act.
For those of you wondering, and I know some of you are out there, the age of consent in Florida is 18 and the poorly named Romeo and Juliet clause doesn’t apply to a 13 year difference in age.
Again I have to ask, what is it with teachers and Snapchat? As I’ve said before, I’m not cherry picking Snapchat stories that have teachers in them. It seems like I see more Snapchat stories with teachers in them than other types of predators.
41-year-old Summer Sparrow, I can’t make this up, was a high school teacher in Cherryville, North Carolina. She was arrested for having sex with a 17-year-old student she had been chatting with on Snapchat. While the age of consent in North Carolina is 16, it’s illegal for a teacher to have a sexual relationship with a student regardless of age.
The hook to this story is, Sparrow received no jail time for her transgressions. Instead, she lost her teaching license and has to stay out of trouble for a year or face jail time. If she stays out of trouble she can have her crime expunged from her criminal record.
While I’m not a trilby wearing neckbeard, I have to question if a male teacher who was arrested on similar charges would have been given such a sweet deal? We seem to have an impression in this country that when a woman has sex with a teenage boy it’s somehow more acceptable than if a man has sex with an underage teenage girl.
This woman is also a mother. How would she like it if a teacher had sex with one of her kids?
27-year-old Amelia Tat was a middle school teacher in Charlottesville, Virginia. Last June, she was arrested for having sex with a 14-year-old male student after communicating with the student on Instagram, and of course Snapchat. The ‘relationship’ (child rape) went on for 8 months before the boy’s mother discovered text messages between Tat and the student.
For those of you who say things like “I wish I had a teacher like that when I was 14”, the boy has been diagnosed with PTSD. So, I hope you’re also hoping for a lifetime of mental health problems to go along with your statutory rape fantasy.
Surprisingly, Tat was sentenced to ten years in prison. Not surprisingly she had eight years suspended. So she’ll only have to spend two years in prison and I have no doubt she’ll be released early since she’s a new mother. Thankfully, not with her victim.
Genovese told her he would see her in 15 minutes and drove to her house, according to a probable cause statement filed by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the statement, Genovese told her he would bring a condom with him and she replied she didn’t know what a condom was.
Genovese allegedly then had sexual intercourse and oral sex with the 12-year-old girl.
I think my computer hates me for making it paste that. Maybe that’s why my last computer died, it probably killed itself.
Genovese has been charged with statutory rape, but in a just world, he should be charged with child molestation.
This is what could happen if you not only allow your kids to have access to their devices at night, but if you don’t check their activity as well. Since Kik is popular with teens and pre-teens it has attracted an ungodly amount of sex offenders, pedophiles, and child porn collectors. Letting your kids have unfettered access to the internet like this gives predators an open window that leads directly to your children.
40-year-old Mark Trabucco, of Clay, New York, was a principal at a nearby middle school. He’s accused of allegedly using Snapch….hang on a sec…craigslist to have sexual contact with an underage girl. Sorry, when it comes to teachers, I start to type out Snapchat by force of habit.
There’s not as many details as I like, however, from what I can gather, Trabucco responded to a craigslist ad that was supposedly placed by the girl. Trabucco is said to have used this ad to arrange a meeting with the girl where they reportedly engaged in sexual contact. To further clarify, Trabucco was charged with two counts of a criminal sex act in the 3rd degree. According to a brief Google search, under New York state law, no person over 21-years of age can have sex with someone who is under the age of 17. The victim is said to have told her parents after the crime was committed.
Personally, I’d like to know what the ad was for, and why it caused Trabucco to allegedly proceed the way he did.
Lastly, the girl was not a student of his school. Well of course she wasn’t. Then he would have used Snapchat.
Hey look, a teacher having sex with students. Hey look, Snapchat was involved. What are the odds?
Anyway, 38-year-old Heather Lee Robertson, of Lufkin, Texas, is a kindergarten teacher accused of allegedly having sex with students. Not the kindergarten students, but high school students from the same school district. Police say one of the boys was sexting (how I loathe that word) with Robertson through Snapchat. That student is said to have brought a friend and they all had a threesome. Two other students said that Robertson would pick them up from their home and take them back to her place, and not for extra credit. Robertson claims she ‘recently’ started drinking heavily and can’t recall many of the details.
While the cretins among us are part of the ‘I wish I had a teacher like that’ crowd, this is nothing to laugh about. These kids could go on to have very warped ideas when it comes to relationships with women, seeing them more as conquests or things to be objectified rather than treating them like equals.
40-year-old Aaron Karl Esplin, of Hurricane, Utah, is, or was, a high school teacher. He’s accused of allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student of his. Considering this is a teacher we’re talking about, you know that Snapchat is involved. Esplin is believed to have requested nude pictures of the girl through the picture sharing app.
The age of consent for women is 16-years-old, however, the law also states that anyone under 18 can not consent to a relationship with anyone who is ten years or more older. That’s all moot though since Esplin was said to be in possession of explicit pictures of the girl, which is legally considered child porn.
This shows that social media can be used by sketchy teachers like this to circumvent parents and have direct access to your children. I may be an old man yelling at a cloud, but I think it’s inappropriate for teachers to have any kind of communication with students that’s not through their parents or properly authorized school channels.
