This week’s most salacious teacher-student sex stories
The dog days of August are unlikely to bring any relief from the national epidemic of teacher-student sex stories. Any given week is sure to end with several stories (even in the summer), but some are far more intriguing than others.
This week, the sexual proclivities and travails of two teachers are worthy of your precious, valuable time.
Malik Taylor, 31, was a dean and a “community adviser” at the Business of Sports School—a public high school (that actually exists) in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. He stands accused of having sex with four students and harassing at least four more.
He cleverly left a trail of evidence by calling and sending texts using his wife’s cellphone, reports the Daily Mail.
Taylor quit his job in late May after one of the students he had sex with reported his shenanigans, which prompted an extensive investigation.
Taylor allegedly convinced that student to have sex with him by making fun of her and remarking about the size and shape of her buttocks. He said, for example, that her “ass is ridiculous.” One day in the cafeteria, he grabbed her buttocks.
“I just had to,” he told her.
Somehow, this wooing eventually caused the student to meet him outside of school—for gyros followed by a trip to a motel. They had unprotected sex on a total of two occasions.
That unnamed student and two others with whom Taylor allegedly had sex were at least 17 years old (the age of consent in New York). Another student was only 16. Taylor admitted to having sex with her in empty classrooms on two occasions, notes the Mail.
The 16-year-old student later ran away from home, apparently as the result of something having to do with Taylor.
The four students the ex-dean tried but failed to entice into sex have their own stories. According to one, he moved toward her on an elevator and said he recognized her because of her buttocks. She said the comment made her feel “scared.”
Another student says she denied a particularly vulgar sexual invite from Taylor. He allegedly responded by seeking permission to “at least suck on her boobs.”
Meanwhile, in the endless suburban sprawl of Southern California, the former high school teacher in Redlands who had a baby with one student and had sex with two others pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a year in prison.
Laura Elizabeth Whitehurst copped a guilty plea to four counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and two more counts of oral copulation of a person under 18.
Whitehurst, 28, will be on probation for five years once she completes her jail term, reports the Los Angeles Times. Assuming good behavior, she will do her time in a county jail. She must also submit to counseling and register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
The frisky AP English teacher had sex repeatedly with a now 17-year-old Citrus Valley High School student. The affair began at her apartment after a trip to Disneyland in 2012.
“One thing led to another, and he ended up at her residence, and it’s been ongoing for approximately one year now,” explained a Redlands Police spokesman.
On June 18, Whitehurst gave birth to a baby fathered by the unidentified teenage student with whom she had the yearlong love tryst. (RELATED: High school teacher has teen student’s baby, gets arrested)
After Whitehurst’s arrest, two other former students came forward saying they had sex with her during her six-year tenure with the Redlands Unified School District. She had been charged with 41 felonies. (RELATED: Baby mama English teacher now charged with 41 felonies, two more affairs)
An attorney representing one of the three students with whom Whitehurst got busy expressed dissatisfaction with the plea agreement.
“This is a very short sentence for such crimes,” attorney Heather Cullen told the L.A. Times. “It’s shocking anyone would face so little time for abusing minors. This is definitely being treated differently because they are boys and she is a woman.”
James Gass, Whitehurst’s attorney, was much happier with the outcome. He said Whitehurst is “a clean-cut American girl sitting in jail, so she’s having a hard time. But she will be okay.”
It’s not clear where or with whom Whitehurst’s new baby will live during her hiatus in the joint.
