Three Indiana Teachers Arrested for Using 16-Year-Old for Sex
When most people look back on being 16, they remember awkward teen dances, getting a drivers’ license and general angst about the world. Usually, they don’t remember a time when they were passed among three men and casually used for sex over a few months. For one Indiana teen, that’s exactly the memory he’ll have.
Seriously, this story’s totally OMGWTFLOL minus any trace of LOL.
The boy, 16, came forward and told prosecutors that the band director, a swim coach and a substitute Spanish teacher all engaged in physical relationships with him several times on the grounds of North Putnam High School in central Indiana.
Perhaps most horrifying is that the boy was introduced to the band director by the Spanish teacher — after the two adults talked about the teen during a teach with each other.
Arrested were: Nicholas A. Vester, 24, a substitute Spanish teacher who worked at the school for 12 weeks last fall; Craig E. Rogers, 24, the band director who is currently on paid leave and Brandon D. Largent, 20, a student at Ivy Tech community college who was a lifeguard and volunteer swim coach at the school.
The sexual activity escalated in November when Vester fondled the boy in his car in the parking lot of a local store, among other activities. It culminated in December when Vester had relations with the teen in the back of his car on a roadside after a basketball game at the high school, the teacher told police.
The substitute teacher also admitted he kissed and fondled the teen at school 12 to 15 times. During this time, Vester and Rogers went out on a date together, where they discussed the boy.
We’ve heard stories of a teacher getting intimate with a student, but three teachers passing around a 16-year-old, and then getting together to chat about it? That’s pretty messed up. And we know a thing or two about messed up teachers.
An unfortunate side-effect of this whole fiasco is the bad rap that homosexual or perceived-as-being-homosexual teachers are going to get from stuff like this. We’re trying to fight for marriage equality and to prove to everyone that we’re not second class citizens, and then we get guys like these proving Linda Harvey right.
Big ups to UB reader Landon for sending this story our way.
