Educrats Gone Wild

Every day I receive google search results for teacher arrested. Some days I receive as many as ten stories about teachers arrested. Make sure you are having honest and frank conversations with your students about their activities with their teachers.

Spelling errors, grammar errors, misuse of homonyms and typos are left as an exercise for my readers.

Teacher who advises colleagues on how to avoid affairs with students caught having sex with 16-year-old boy from her school

Caught in the act: Courtney Bowles, 31, was discovered in the back seat of her car with a 16-year-old boy

A teacher who advises colleagues on how to avoid affairs with students was caught having sex with a teenager in the back of her car.

Courtney Bowles was found by a police officer naked lying on top of the boy, who was also completely naked, from her school in Colorado.

A partly consumed bottle of vodka was also found in the car with the couple.

Her student lover initially said he was 20 years old - but later admitted he was 16.

Bowles,31,was employed at his school as a teacher's instructional coach. It was her job to trains teachers on how to maintain a professional distance from students.

Unfortunately for the teacher, the evidence of her dalliance with the student was rather overwhelming when a police patrol spotted a lone car parked in a park in the town of Loveland.

When an officer shone his torch into the car he saw they were having sex.

According to an arrest report the officer wrote: 'The female was on top of the male and she quickly jumped off of the male when she saw my flashlight shining into the vehicle.

'I told both subjects that I could see they were naked and they needed to get dressed and talk to me.'

Mother of two: Bowles, who faces up to 10 year in jail if convicted, is on $50,000 bail - but cannot approach anyone under teh age of 18, including her own children

Awaiting hearing: Bowles faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of charges relating to the sexual assault of a child

Investigators said the boy initially told the officer he was 20 years old, but when asked for identification he produced a school ID card that showed him to be 16.

The officer also found a bottle of vodka inside the vehicle.

Bowles, a mother of two, was booked into the Larimer County Detention Centre on charges of sexual assault, sex assault of a child by a person in a position of trust and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

She was released on $50,000 bail but not allowed contact with anyone aged under 18 years of age, including her own children - both girls.

Counsellors were called into the Mountain View High School where she worked to help any children troubled by the arrest.

She faces up to ten years in jail if convicted of all the offences and placed on a sex offenders register for life.
