Another day, another high school teacher caught in a sexual relationship with a student. Today’s naughty news comes from Edwardsville, Illinois, where a 37-year-old female teacher was arrested for gettin’ it on with a then-17-year-old male student.
The BELLEVILLE NEWS-DEMOCRAT reports that Kasey E. Johnes was arrested & charged Wednesday with sexual assault & aggravated criminal sexual abuse. The health teacher admitted to having a hot ‘n’ heavy relationship with the now senior student, a forbidden union that lasted for five months until it was ended in February.
It might not be as lurid as the lesbian relationship between a former Gonzaga basketball player & a high school softball player, but it’s still kind of interesting:
The sexual encounters took place at Johnes’ residence. Johnes and her husband, a physical education teacher and coach in the Edwardsville school district, own a $230,000 home in Glen Carbon.
Talk about home schooling. Maybe if Coach Johnes spent more time with the missus and less time in gym class, she wouldn’t have gotten involved in such sex-tracurricular activity.
But things look grim for Kasey. She’s being held at the Madison County Jail with bail set at $100,000. She’s also been ordered to stay at least 1,500 feet away from her former love interest. And the combined charges could lead up to a maximum total of 22 years in prison.
Worst of all, the school has placed Kasey on unpaid leave.
I hope for the student’s sake he’s not on any of Coach Johnes’ teams. We’re talking extra-extra laps here.
And Kasey, shouldn’t you have taken the Grateful Dead’s advice about watching your speed?
