A Milwaukee teacher has been arrested and charged with one count of sexual contact with a minor under thirteen. The teacher sent the boy messages on SnapChat. The two had touched each other’s private areas through their clothes both in her car and at her home. She had begged the boy not to tell anyone because she would be fired and sent to prison.
Katherine Gonzalez was a teacher at Atlas Preparatory Academy, a Choice school until the story of the sexual contact came out. Gonzalez said that the boy was chronically depressed so she said things to him to make him happy.
According to her interview with police, she told authorities that she wanted to child to see that someone cared.
Gonzalez appeared in court for the charge and a judge set her cash bond at $15,000 while ordering her to have no contact with the victim.
She is prohibited from using social media, a cell phone or a computer.
Officials with the school sent a letter home to parents on March 3 announcing that one of the teacher’s had been placed on administrative leave.
The letter, which was signed by Atlas Preparatory Academy executive director Michelle Lukacs, stated that the Milwaukee Police Department is investigating a report that accuses a teacher at the school of having inappropriate conduct with an underage student outside of school grounds.
There has been an epidemic of female teachers preying on their students. You would think after so many of them were caught, the teachers would learn but evidently not.
