Following several sex crime charges against a Kansas City teacher, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has set up a dedicated hotline to collect information about any other potential crimes the man may have committed. According to police reports, teacher in question faces charges of statutory sodomy, and authorities believe that there may be more instances of sexual assault that have yet to be reported.
The teacher currently faces six separate counts of statutory sodomy, and allegedly engaged in sexual activity with his students over a number of years while serving as a teacher and coach. Authorities claim that the man admitted to them that he carried on relationships of a sexual nature with at least two boys younger than 18 years old. He also reportedly admitted to secretly collecting video footage of underage boys while they were naked in locker rooms at several school where he taught.
While this man’s alleged crimes are objectively terrible, it is still vital to the legal process that he get the best defense that he can, just like every other person charged with a crime. The full extent of this man’s alleged activities are still unclear, and it is important that the matter remain fair and restrained, rather than devolve into a witch hunt.
If you or anyone you know has been charged with a sex crime, it is crucial to your future and your safety that you secure an experienced legal defense. With the guidance of an experienced attorney, you can rest assured that your case will be handled fairly and that your rights will be protected throughout the process.
