Unlike some of the other cases we’ve covered here that involve student-teacher sex, the details are nonexistent in this one.
It’s a matter of taste, I suppose, but the alleged perp in this case isn’t as attractive as some of the hotties we’ve seen. One report that I read said that parents have identified her as a librarian at the school.
Police aren’t even revealing whether the alleged victim is male of female. D’Spain has no presence on the Internet, so the only photos we have of are the mugshots, which are usually not very flattering.
To me, she looks lesbianish. But what do I know? Still, it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that the victim was female.
A high school teacher in Texas accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student has been arrested.
Sara Kathryn D’Spain is one of two teachers in Kerrville who have been under investigation for alleged improper contact a student, the San Antonio Express-News reported. The investigation involving the second teacher is still underway, police told the newspaper.
D’Spain, who was released from jail after posting a $35,000 bond, was placed on administrative leave last week along with the other teacher, the report said.
“These allegations are of behaviors that will not be tolerated in our school district and that are not indicative of our faculty and staff,” Superintendent Mark J. Foust told the Express-News.
D’Spain could serve serious prison time, and a hefty fine if convicted, San Antonio’s WOAI-TV reported.
Since the 2010 fiscal year, Texas authorities have investigated more than 1,500 allegations of improper relationships between teachers and students, the Express-News reported.
In May, Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law legislation that requires principals to report to district superintendents if a teacher is terminated or resigns after being accused of an improper relationship with a student.
The law, which took effect Sept. 1, increases the penalty for superintendents who don’t report such misconduct and revokes the teaching certificates of teachers who are found to be registered sex offenders, the newspaper reported.
Kerrville, a town of about 23,000 which isn’t too far up the road from me in the Texas Hill Country, is considered to be a highly desirable place to live. It was settled by Germans and is still 85 percent white.
You know there’s an epidemic of out of control teachers when a town like Kerrville is investigating two teachers for sex crimes.
The question that always comes up if you think about this epidemic is why these teachers don’t go after someone away from school, who’s at least 17, the age of consent in Texas. D’Spain is facing 2 to 20 years in prison, plus a $10,000 fine. The price of sex keeps going up, doesn’t it?
