Middle school teacher arrested for having sex with student — again

A former middle school gym teacher in Georgia was arrested for the second time this year for having sex with a student.

Shawnetta D. Reece, 40, was taken into custody Thursday for engaging in sexual conduct with a high school senior in 2015, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The student was 18 years old at the time of the alleged relationship.

The former Union County Middle School gym teacher was arrested at her Blairsville home.

Authorities became aware of the relationship while investigating allegations that the teacher was sexually involved with a 15-year-old student in 2013.

Reece was arrested Aug. 14 for the relationship with the 15-year-old. She was charged with child molestation and sexual assault by persons with supervisory or disciplinary authority.

She was booked again Thursday on charges of sexual assault by persons with supervisory or disciplinary authority in the case of the second victim.

Authorities said they will continue to investigate the former track coach.

“Upon completion of the investigation, the case will be provided to the Enotah Judicial Circuit District Attorney for prosecution,” the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.

No jail for former Champlin Park High coach who sexually assaulted boy, 13

A onetime girls soccer coach for Champlin Park High School has avoided being locked up and has an opportunity to have a felony conviction dismissed for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy in his north metro bedroom.

Rebecca L. Noonan, 33, of Minneapolis, was sentenced this week in Anoka County District Court after pleading guilty to fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct for having intercourse with the boy in his Ramsey home in August or September 2014 while his mother was away.

Noonan’s sentence includes a “stay of adjudication,” meaning her case will be dismissed if she meets all requirements demanded of her while on supervised probation for up to 10 years.

Those requirements include: no contact with the boy, no use of alcohol or illicit drugs, no possessing of weapons and completing treatment for “dependency needs, emotional needs and personal needs,” according to court records.

When she entered her guilty plea in January, Noonan acknowledged in a court questionnaire that “I was so drunk or so under the influence of drugs or medicine that I did not know what I was doing at the time of the crime.”

Defense attorney Scott Lewis said his client took the plea deal even though “she has always maintained her innocence. … It’s essentially an acquittal without the risk of a trial.”

Noonan is no longer coaching at Champlin Park and had no other duties at the high school or in the district. She joined the Champlin Park soccer program in 2007 as an assistant coach and became head coach in 2012.

Along with her coaching duties at Champlin Park, Noonan ran a soccer camp during the summer on the high school grounds.

School officials chose not to renew her contract in July 2015, about the time she was charged, a district spokesman said.

Kirk Anderson, Noonan’s attorney at the time she was charged, said she came to know the boy because she was a friend of the family.

In high school, Noonan played for Robbinsdale Cooper. She then played soccer while attending Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount, where she studied exercise and sports science.

Clemson students given ‘Heterosexual Questionnaire’ in class

I deconstructed my heterosexuality and was substituting it with an artificial bisexuality.”

Criminal Justice majors at Clemson University are reportedly being required to take a “Heterosexual Questionnaire” as part of the major’s nine-credit Social Justice Requirement.

Photos of the questionnaire, provided to Campus Reform by a Criminal Justice student who wishes to remain anonymous, reveal that it is filled with loaded questions apparently designed to make students feel guilty or uncertain about their preference for members of the opposite sex.

The questionnaire was distributed in a Sociology of Sex and Gender course taught by PhD candidate Traci Hefner.

Clemson restructured the criminal justice concentration in 2016 to incorporate nine credit-hours of social justice-related coursework, with Professor Marjie Britz asserting at the time that the new program “will more fully immerse students in the world of criminal justice, but it is also designed to address the increasingly complicated ethical and social issues facing law enforcement and criminal justice organizations today.”

“A mandatory nine hours of work in social justice courses” became “a key component in the design of the program,” according to Clemson’s media release, which also noted that “Britz and university leaders seek to produce justice studies graduates who see the importance of issues of ethics and diversity in the field of criminal justice.”

“When and how did you first decide you were a heterosexual?” the document asks. “Is it possible that your heterosexuality is just a phase you will out-grow? Is it possible that your heterosexuality stems from bad experiences with people of the same sex?”

It goes on to ask, “If you’ve never been sexually or romantically involved with a person of the same sex, is it possible that all you need is a good same-sex partner?”

Shifting to a more accusatory tone, it then asks, “Why do you heterosexuals insist on flaunting your heterosexuality? Can’t you just be what you are and keep it quiet? Is it really necessary to see heterosexuals on TV and in the media?”

 

Continuing to make sweeping generalizations, the back of the questionnaire asserts that “A disproportionate amount of child molesters are heterosexuals,” asking, “Do you consider it safe to expose children to heterosexual teachers?”

“How can you become a whole person if you limit yourself to heterosexuality and fail to develop your natural, healthy homosexual potential?,” the questionnaire continues, asking, “Would you want your children to be heterosexual, knowing the problems they’d face?”

“Statistics show that heterosexuals are most affected by STIs, and that lesbians have the lowest incidence of STIs,” another item adds. “Is it really safe for a woman to have a heterosexual lifestyle and run the risk of disease and pregnancy?”

 

“Basically she used it as a means to start a discussion on how heteros say that all the time to gays and how heteronormative societies push gays away,” the anonymous student explained to Campus Reform.

“It felt like she was trying to make being hetero a negative thing,” the student added, pointing out that is was “not for a grade” and calling the exercise “honestly completely pointless to criminal justice.”

Following the Heterosexual Questionnaire, the professor “brought the case study out to show us how a heteronormative culture can be harmful to the LGBTQ people,” the student reported.

A photo of the case study in question describes “T.J.,” a white teenage girl with ADHD and PTSD. T.J. suspects she is a lesbian, and is afraid to tell her parents, church pastor, and youth group. After making “sexually suggestive comments to a group of boys,” she is suspended from her youth group indefinitely.

“T.J’s parents were constantly trying to get her to act and dress in a more feminine manner. Her dad complained that she didn’t act like a lady and that really bothered him. T.J’s mom exhibited traditional standards of femininity,” the case study states disapprovingly, adding that T.J’s parents get into a fight over T.J’s “un-lady like behavior.”

 

After this scenario, the case study asks students, “How does heteronormativity affect T.J.?,” instructing them to “describe the gender expectations and stereotypes in this case” and “discuss T. J.[‘s] behaviors using social learning theory.”

Campus Reform reached out to Hefner, but did not receive a response in time for publication.
