Ex-Cardinal McCarrick teacher, Fatima Grupico, had sex with student

Wow. The teacher sex scandals were so powerful at this New Jersey Catholic high school that they had to shut it down!

Not really. It just so happens that Cardinal McCarrick High School was shut down at the end of this past school year as a result of declining enrollment. At the same time, however, history teacher Fatima Grupico, 24, was allegedly having an affair with a 17-year-old male student.

More on the story from MyCentralJersey:
Fatima Grupico, 24, of Linden, was arrested Thursday and charged with sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child, according to Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey. According to Carey, an investigation determined that Grupico allegedly had sexual relations with the student on a number of occasions at the school between May 4, 2015, and May 30, 2015. The school was closed by the Diocese of Metuchen in May because of declining enrollment. Carey said Grupico is in custody awaiting bail to be set. Grupico was charged during an investigation by Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office Detective George Stilwell and South Amboy Detective Matthew Barcheski. The investigation began after school officials notified police.

Brianne Altice Update: Former Teacher Sentenced to 2 to 30 Years in Student Sex Case

What? 2-30 years? Which is it? A slap on the wrist where she'll be out on probation in 6 months, or 30 hard years where she'll have to become someone's bitch and when she gets out she'll be 66-years-old? That's a big difference, but that is the world of female teacher sex scandals these days.

Here's more from ABC News:
A former high school English teacher who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing three male students said Thursday she was vulnerable and made mistakes, but a Utah judge scolded her for committing serious crimes and sentenced her to up to 30 years in prison. Prosecutors say one of the boys was 16 and two were 17 when Brianne Altice had sex with them. The 36-year-old Altice was initially free while her case played out, but was sent to jail in January after allegations emerged that she continued a sexual relationship with one of the boys while she was out on bail. Her lawyer said Altice is a damaged person who gave into daily flirtations from the boys because she was belittled at home and dealing with self-esteem problems. She cried as she apologized to the victims at a sentencing hearing Thursday. "I am human, and I messed up during a very vulnerable time in my life," she said. The mother of the then-16-year-old victim said her son was also vulnerable. "You hurt my son in ways that you will never know. You hurt all of those boys," said the woman. She did not give her name, and The Associated Press does not generally identify family members of sexual assault victims to avoid revealing a victim's identity. She said her son has been threatened and their home vandalized over the case, and he's still dealing with serious emotional effects of the abuse. While prosecutor Cristina Ortega acknowledged that the students flirted, she said Altice should have put a stop to it. "She enjoyed the positive attention she was getting from them, but I think she failed to recognize that she was the adult, and this wasn't positive attention," she said. Altice pleaded guilty to three counts of forcible sexual abuse in April. She sent a handwritten letter to Judge Thomas Kay last month asking him not to send her to prison. She said she's harmless, and promised she wouldn't repeat the crime. But Kay said Thursday that she needs to change her life, and he believed that would require prison time. "You were the adult, you were the teacher, you were the one that could have stopped that from happening," he said. Prosecutors say she befriended the boys, allowing them to hang out in her classroom, and the relationships later turned sexual. One victim said he considered her to be his girlfriend during their yearlong sexual relationship.

Our friends at TMZ got a hold of a video of "singer" Ariana Grande at a Southern California donut shop where she was not only caught on camera licking donuts on the counter (who leaves them out like that anyway?) and also saying, ""What the f**k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America."

As a result, she was dropped from the Major League Baseball All-Star concert this weekend and now cops are investigating to see if she committed a crime.

Uh, hello? If you're looking for a crime, listen to one of her songs. Ewww.

Male Teacher Accused of Daily Sex with Teen in Fourth Sex Scandal at Infamous "Horndog High" in New York - James Madison High School

You remember Horndog High don't you? James Madison High School in Brooklyn, New York?

It started in 2009 with two female teachers caught having sex in a classroom, then moved on to a female teacher having sex with a male student that same year. In 2012 another female teacher was arrested for having sex with a male student in her office.

And that brings us to 2015 where Robert Cain is not only accused of having sex repeatedly with a female student at the school, he was then dismissed, but re-hired at a school in New Jersey after apparently passing a State Police background check.

Here's more on the story from News.com.au:
The report stated Cain, a 38-year-old husband and father-of-two, met his victim in September 2013. The pair joked, bantered, and he praised her outfits and looks. Cain then spoke of his divorce and “lack of sex”, prompting the student to “not want to see him depressed”. By November, Cain confessed he had “inappropriate feelings” for the girl. When alone in his office, he allegedly ocked the door and groped her breasts from behind. The report stated they then had sex, which went onto become their daily routine for two months, including an outing to a hotel. Their relationship ended after Christmas when the girl got jealous, and a complaint was lodged against Cain in February last year. Cain has denied all allegations — despite investigators showing him CCTV footage of him walking into the hotel with the girl and a booking receipt.

Al Jazeera Fourth of July video - Americans Show Why USA Is The #1 Country In The World

Wait, is this a pro-American, or anti-American video?  Hard to tell from the title.

Video below, but first, details from AL.com:
A video posted on an Al Jazeera YouTube channel over the Fourth of July weekend mocks Americans for dubious "achievements" in obesity, pornography production and gun ownership. The satirical item, under two minutes long, was produced out of San Francisco by a digital arm of the Qatar-based Al Jazeera news network. It has not been seen on television, including on the beleaguered Al Jazeera America channel. Debuting on the weekend set aside for celebrating the birth of the U.S., the video is entitled "Americans Show Why USA is the #1 Country in the World." It begins with a man who explains that most people probably know that Americans lead the world in Olympic medals won, Nobel laureates and billionaires. Then it goes on to list other benchmarks, including the large number of people imprisoned and the amount of guns owned. The U.S. also has a leading percentage of obese people, one man said. "A third of us can't even see our own toes," he said.

Teacher Charged For Victimizing Male Teen With Month-Long Sex Fling Has Worked At Dirty Dick’s - Kimberly Lynne Umphlett

Teacher/Waitress Kimberly Lynne Umphlett is in big trouble . . . and it's not for getting your order wrong at a place called Dirty Dick's Crab House, a seafood restaurant in North Carolina.

Nope, it sounds Like Ms, Umphlett is in trouble for having sex with a student (likely male) while she was still a teacher less than two months ago at Currituck County High School.

More on the story from the Daily Caller:
Umphlett, 24, had been a teacher at Currituck County High School. Police investigators say she had “inappropriate conduct and sexual contact with a student.” Police believe the trysts began in April and continued for about a month. The last encounter between Umphlett and the student was around the day when the student revealed the relationship to another teacher at Currituck County High, police say. That teacher contacted school administrators, who then contacted police. Local news reports fastidiously do not indicate whether the student is male or female. However, the student is identified as a male teenager by the Daily Mail and Boston Newstime. Umphlett’s Facebook page indicates that she is — or was — an employee at Dirty Dick’s Crab House, a seafood restaurant in Avon, N.C., notes The Inquisitr.

Former Florida teacher sentenced to 22 years for having sex with high school students - Jennifer Fichter


Wow! 22 years.  We've been doing this blog long enough to remember when female teachers pretty much all got a slap on the wrist probation and were treated as helpless victims of horny teen-aged boys. But not anymore.

Judges are now seeing that these ladies are making choices--most of them stupid--that impact not just their lives but the lives of their victims. Case in point is Jennifer Fichter, 30, the former teacher at Lakeland's Central Florida Aerospace Academy English teacher who started having affairs with students back in 2008, but instead of being fired was moved to another school where she took up right where she left off.

And now she's getting some real jail time. Here's more from PIX11:

Jennifer Fichter, 30, pled guilty to 37 counts of child sex charges. The first accusation of ‘inappropriate conduct’ reportedly came in 2008, when she was accused of having sex with an eighth grader. She resigned, but was subsequently hired by a different school district, and the conduct began again shortly thereafter. According to WTSP, she admitted to having sex with just one of the students around 20-30 times, with one of them leading to her getting an abortion. ‘All I can say is I’m so sorry,’ the former English teacher told family members and the court. ‘I wish I could go back and remove what I have done,’ ‘I hate what I have done. I wish I could go back and think about them (the victims) before me.’

Lady Teacher in Trouble for Sending Nude Pics to Teen - Megan Clough

So . . . Megan Clough, 29, a teacher at Mountain View High School in Susquehanna County, Pa., thought the naked pictures of herself she sent to an underage male student would disappear quickly from SnapChat . . . but they didn't. And soon they were being passed around the school, along with rumors of her having sex with the boy.

Now, she's in trouble with the law and learning the hard way that you can't trust technology.

Details on the story from PennLive:
A 29-year-old female high school teacher is not only accused of having sex with a male student. She allegedly sent him nude pictures of herself via the popular social media site, Snapchat, as well. Only instead of those pictures then vanishing, as they are meant to do on that site, the nude photos ended up in the hands of at least one more student and were seen by many others, police tell WNEP-TV. Megan Clough, 29, a teacher at Mountain View High School in Susquehanna County, Pa., was arraigned Friday on one count of institutional sexual assault, WNEP reports, adding that institutional sexual assault is a kind of charge usually filed when the victim is 18 or older but still a student. She allegedly had sex with a male student at the school.
