Barbara Ellen: do we seriously think that a female teacher sleeping
with a male pupil is on a par with a male teacher sleeping
with a girl pupil? I don’t.
PARIS, Maine (AP) – A former middle school teacher in Naples has admitted under a plea deal that she sexually assaulted a teen boy in nearby Sweden last year.
The Sun Journal in Lewiston reports (http://bit.ly/29AhfFF ) former Lake Region Middle School teacher Michelle Dunn pleaded guilty on Wednesday to unlawful sexual touching.
The 41-year-old Woodstock woman must complete a sex offender evaluation and isn’t allowed to contact the student. She won’t have to register as a sex offender and her 90-day jail sentence was suspended.
Dunn taught English language arts to seventh- and eighth-grade students. Authorities say she sexually assaulted a 14- or 15-year-old boy in September. She resigned weeks later.
State officials say Dunn’s license to teach in the state is active until July 2017. It’s unknown if it will be revoked.
