Johnson County teacher admits to sex with students

April 5, 2012


— A former Shawnee Mission West High School teacher has admitted to having sex with students.

Twenty-eight-year-old Michelle L. Preston pleaded guilty Thursday to three felony counts involving students age 16 or older. A judge set her sentencing for June 1.

The Kansas City Star reports Preston taught psychology and world geography and coached cheerleading at Shawnee Mission West.

She was suspended after the allegations surfaced last March and the district did not renew her contract.

Preston is free on bond pending sentencing.

Teens just cannot keep a secret no matter the enjoyment.

When will teachers ever learn.

Seems to me the teens should be subject to house arrest instead of walking free. They too know right from wrong.

Home schooling is also legal in Kansas, you know. Unless you're advocating for not educating children at all?

It's about the inequality of power within the relationship. A classic case of sexual harassment. Kind of like a president having a relationship with an intern. Even if age of consent has been achieved, their levels of power would define the relationship as sexual harassment.

math there is a us government. this government stole the land for you that you live on. without this act you would still be a whining pauper in some fiefdom in europe railing against the land owner that had you in indetured servitude as a white person just like many professional people in the us are now due to the imbecelic policies of your dear leader bush and his boss darth cheney. start stupid wars and have supply side destruction and like my black co worker said...blame it on the black guy... which coward conservatives are good at doing.
