Female school teacher charged with rape after ‘having sex with three pupils’

Lindsey Call, 39, faces four counts in a scandal which has rocked school bosses and parents.

The mum of two is said to have had intercourse with one pupil aged under 18 in June.

Other sex sessions are said to have taken place during the summer holidays.

The charges follow accusations made in August that she romped with three teens from Bardstown High School, Kentucky.

Their parents had reportedly been in touch with the school after two of the boys admitted having sex with a substitute teacher off-campus.

One of them, 17, said he got her phone number from another pupil.

Police Chief McKenzie Mattingly said his officers did not find out about the allegations until September after Child Protective Services spent a month looking into the case.

 

But investigators now had enough evidence to formally charge Call with (four counts) of third degree rape.

None of the reported sex sessions took place on school property, he said.

Call could be jailed for up to five years on each charge if convicted.

 

She is out on 5,000dollars bail and banned from contacting her alleged victims.

Call will be arraigned in Nelson Circuit Court on November 3.

She now works as a co-ordinator for a Government-funded programme preparing pupils for college.

South Korea: Choi Soon-sil gate latest news

http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20161031000701

The Ministry of Education said Monday that it had launched a two-week special inspection into allegations that Ewha Womans University gave special treatment to the daughter of President Park Geun-hye’s embattled confidante.

The ministry dispatched an on-site inspection team comprising 12 ministry officials to the Seoul-based university. The inspection centers on Chung Yoo-ra, a horseback rider and the daughter of Choi Soon-sil, the woman accused of meddling in state affairs through her ties to Park.

Chung is suspected of being unfairly admitted into the university and receiving favorable grades despite missing most of her classes and repeatedly submitting assignments past deadlines.

The ministry is set to look into why the school added horseback riding to a list of categories open to student athletes in 2014, right before the dressage rider’s admission the following year, and whether the Asian Games gold medal that Chung obtained after the application deadline was considered in the application process.

The ministry will also probe whether professors gave her overly generous grades despite her not turning in assignments, and whether the school changed its academic policy to excuse her long absences from class.

Amid the snowballing allegations, Choi Kyung-hee, president of Ewha Womans University, resigned on Oct. 19.

The inspection came amid the escalating probe into the influence-peddling scandal involving Choi, as she returned to Korea on Sunday for prosecutorial questioning. Chung’s whereabouts remain unknown.

Critics urge the ministry to widen its probe to look into allegations the woman’s university secured eight of nine state-funded projects by the Education Ministry in return for providing special treatment to Chung.

According to measures to crack down on irregularities in university admissions released by the Education Ministry in March, Chung’s entrance into Ewha can be canceled and she can be expelled from the sports industry if the allegations prove true.

Choi, who is accused of pulling strings for her daughter, could also be subject to punishment and the university could be partially banned from recruiting students.

Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education also launched an on-site inspection on Monday at Chung’s high school, Cheongdam High School, which is also suspected of receiving kickbacks from Choi and giving preferential treatment to Chung.

The high school in the affluent district of Southern Seoul is accused of creating a program in 2011 to accept dressage athletes in what critics see as an attempt to accept Chung into the school. Chung entered the school in 2012.

Chung allegedly attended the school for only 28 out of 193 days in her senior year in 2014, with the school excusing her for participating in training and competitions, according to official documents issued by the Korea Equestrian Federation.

The regional education office is slated to look into Chung’s records of attendance, academic records and the authenticity of the official document by the KEF to see whether special favors were given to Chung.

Businessman, 54, was branded with an iron and had pushed burning cigarettes up his nostrils every time he refused to have sex with his violent girlfriend

A businessman was branded with an iron and had burning cigarettes pushed up his nostrils – everytime he refused his violent partner sex.

Ian McNicholl, 54, was also bludgeoned with a bar, repeatedly struck in the face with a mobile phone and endured a hammer attack.

On another occasion boiling water was poured over his groin by seven stone bully Michelle Williamson, now 45, and was jailed for seven years for the string of attacks.

Ian, who lived with his attacker in Grimsby, Lincolnshire, suffered a fractured skull, cracked ribs, broken cheekbones and a smashed nose during the 18 months of abuse.

Mr McNicholl says the sustained attacks were often triggered by refusing to have sex with Williamson.

Ian, who is now an ambassador for anti-household violence charity Mankind Initiative, will tell his story to police, lawyers and health workers at a Surviving Domestic Abuse seminar next month.

Recalling the attacks, Alan said: “There was never any remorse. She’d do it, then send me out for cigarettes – she definitely got off on it.”

The abuse began four months after the pair met by chance at Birmingham’s New Street Station when Ian was working in the Black Country as a training advisor.

Michelle thrashed Ian across the face with a vacuum cleaner lead after he refused to reveal sexual details of a previous relationship.

Then the violence rapidly cranked up and Ian said he would be attacked if he refused sex.

He said: “She’d rant ‘You don’t love me enough, you have five minutes to be ready for sex’.

“That, of course, is the last thing on your mind. Then she’d say ‘You now have four minutes, three minutes…’

“At the end of five minutes she’d blocked out what she had done.”

In separate incidents, he had a magnum of Champagne smashed across his knees, cigarettes stubbed out on his chest and shoved into his nostrils.

Twice he was scalded with boiling water and was also branded between the shoulder blades with an iron.

Ian’s ordeal only ended after a neighbour raised the alarm following a catalogue of violence that saw Ian struck with a phone, a metal bar from a rowing machine and a hammer.

Williamson, now living in Wolverhampton, was handed a seven-year prison sentence for causing grievous bodily harm at Grimsby Crown Court in 2009 – and is now free.

Asked to describe his former flame in the beginning when they met in September 2006, Ian said: “She was friendly, she had a good sense of humour.

“Perpetrators will strike when they know they have control – there is a grooming process.

“Manipulation leads to isolation, isolation gives the perpetrators control. My tactic was to not do anything that would make her angry.”

Michelle had warned her partner to blame the visable bruises she caused on burly blokes who were chasing his unpaid gambling debt.

When Ian thought about leaving his violent partner, Michelle told him that she was well connected and would have him killed.

The Surviving Domestic Abuse seminar will take place at Bescot Stadium, Walsall, on Wednesday, November 16.
