Buckley teacher Rebekah Todd to be arraigned for alleged sex with minor:
A high school teacher who allegedly had sex with one of her students has been fired and charged with two felonies. White River High School physical education and health teacher Rebekah Todd is expected to be arraigned in Pierce County Superior Court June 15 on one count of first-degree sexual misconduct with a minor and one count of second-degree sexual misconduct with a minor. The alleged victim in the case is a 17-year-old football player. Todd is about 25.
The incident is not the first time Todd’s conduct has been the subject of attention. She was suspended for allegedly drinking with students at an off-campus graduation party last June, but was reinstated because there was no proof the incident occurred. She was suspended once again last December after showing a strip tease video to her female students. “It was very outrageous when we heard about his video. She actually showed this video as a reward for them doing well in her class,” said PTSA President Megan Hernandez.
The 17-year-old boy told investigators that Todd had sought out the encounter, driving by his workplace and text messaging him about how great he looked without a shirt.
Todd began teaching in 2004 at the age of 23 and was considered cool and hip by students at the school.
We bet she was.
A Christian school teacher has been charged with having sex with a 14-year-old girl who was her student.
Marsha J. Mote (aka Marcy Mote), 37, of Tyro, turned herself in and made an initial appearance in Montgomery County District Court on a charge of aggravated indecent liberties with a child. She was released on $20,000 bond. Mote was a teacher at Tyro Community Christian School. Her husband, Kevin, is associate pastor at Tyro Christian Church and has taken a leave of absence because of the allegations. Before being charged, Mote resigned her position as teacher. She also has stopped participating in church youth volunteer programs.

Karen Patton – Yikes!
A former Wythe County teacher was convicted of three sex crimes on Monday afternoon. Karen Susan Patton entered no contest pleas in a Wytheville courtroom and a judge found her guilty. Patton was convicted of two counts of carnal knowledge and one count of non-forcible sodomy. The charges involve two different children who were once Patton’s students at Scott Memorial Middle School. Patton faces up to 25 years in prison and a more than $200,000 fine when she’s sentenced in June.
Patton resigned from her job as an English teacher and cheer-leading coach at Wytheville’s Scott Memorial Middle School in January 2006 after she was charged with having oral sex with a 13-year-old student. She was arrested after the boy’s parents discovered a letter she allegedly had written the boy and online instant messages and e-mails between them. Apparently, her screen name was hokie_patton. That’s hokey, alright.
A former Brighton Charter school teacher facing charges of sexual assault on a student waived her preliminary hearing Thursday. Carrie McCandless, 28, carried on a romance with a 17-year-old student at Brighton Charter School, according to her arrest affidavit. The affair included 76 text messages from her to the student in a single day, an arrest affidavit alleged.
McCandless is married to the principal of the high school and was fired from her job as teacher and cheerleader coach. She faces felony charges of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The second charge involves allegations she provided alcohol during a school trip to the Estes Park area last October. McCandless is due in back court on April 24 for a for a status hearing or disposition of both charges.
Hey, another cheerleading coach! Alright! The 17 year old kid actually went on the Today Show.
Clay says this had changed his life at school. “Well at first it was all high fives and stuff like that. Yea a lot of my guy friends were, showed (me) a lot more respect I guess. And then as we got further into it, I mean, I lost a lot of friends I had at that school.” Clay added later in the interview that many of the teachers at the school have been very supportive.
Supportive, yes. Because, look at her. As they said on that one South Park episode: Niiiiicce. And gee, the Today Show is interested. Of course, they are! You think they’re gonna be interested in Karen Susan Patton? What is ya, crazy?
Carrie McCandless spent 45 days in jail.
In March 2009, Carrie McCandless was jailed under charges of violation of probation – she had consumed alcohol and was found by authorities in the bed of another parolee(!) However, she is still married (!) to her husband Chris.
Karen Patton was sentenced to 3 years and 11 months in prison. When she gets out, she must complete 5 years of probation.
Marsha Mote was sentenced. Her earliest release date from prison is May 18, 2011. Kevin and Marcy Mote divorced last year.
