Teachers Union Fights To Pay Convicted Homosexual Child Molester $10,000 In Severance

Parents Horrified As Teachers Union Fights For $10,000 Severance For Child Molester – Daily Caller

Michigan’s largest teachers union will force arbitration in an effort to compel a rural school district to pay a $10,000 severance buyout to a former teacher convicted of molesting a teen boy.

The disgraced teacher, Neal Erickson, had been a math and computer-education teacher at Rose City Middle School before he was convicted of having sex with the victim on multiple occasions. The sexual encounters began when the unidentified student was an eighth-grade student.

The boy’s father, John Janczewski, called the Michigan Education Association’s efforts to collect $10,000 for the convicted pedophile “ludicrous,” according to EAGnews.org. Janczewski notes that any money disbursed ought to go to his son, who is “out there trying to make it in this world all messed up.”

The criminal case against Erickson began when a seven-year-old photograph of the then-14-year-old boy was sent anonymously to the school board and superintendent. Details about what exactly was in the image are scant, but police concluded that the boy had sent it to Erickson in 2006.

The male in the photo, who is later graduated and attended Western Michigan University, told police that he and the pedophile teacher had a homosexual relationship.

There were about 10 encounters. They involved oral sex. They occurred at the teacher’s house.

According to EAGnews, the sexual relationship lasted a few years.

Erickson pleaded guilty to a single count of criminal sexual conduct. He was sentenced in July to 15 to 30 years in prison.

The police investigation into Erickson’s sex crimes began in October 2012, and it was then when he was placed on paid administrative leave.

In late March 2012, school district officials offered a $10,000 buyout for qualifying teachers who resigned that year. The buyout was a routine cost-cutting measure.

The union is arguing that Erickson was still employed in March 2012 and then later resigned. Implicit in the argument is that the child molester also meets the qualifications for the buyout. Thus, the union claims, Erickson should receive $10,000.

West Branch-Rose City school district superintendent Dan Cwayna declined to authorize the payment to Erickson.

“That was a decision the superintendent makes and at this point,” Cwayna told EAGnews, “I prefer not to get into the reasons.”

Union representative Ron Parkinson was similarly tight-lipped.

“We don’t make a practice of discussing any case,” Parkinson told the website. “It’s based on contractual compliance, and that’s really all I can say.”

Janczewski, the molested boy’s father, was a little more vocal.

“What are you going to say when you’re backing a child molester?” he asked incredulously.

Prior to Erickson’s sentencing, six current teachers and two retired ones penned letters to the presiding judge seeking leniency for their child-molesting colleague. The group – along with board member Michael Eagan – also sat with Erickson’s relatives during his sentencing hearing.

The letters painted a flattering picture of the convicted pedophile.

“I am asking that Neal be given the absolute minimum sentence, considering all the circumstances surrounding this case,” wrote concerned teacher Amy Huber Eagan, for example. Eagan, Michael Eagan’s wife, also asked the judge to send the child molester to the county lockup, not some real prison.

The judge, Michael Baumgartner, told the audience he was disgusted by the support shown by Erickson’s colleagues.

“I’m appalled and ashamed that the community would rally around, in this case, you,” the judge said.

Usually lackluster Rose City was a crazy scene after the sentencing hearing. The case created a lot of strife. An arsonist burned down the garage belonging to the Janczewski family.

The arsonist also spray-painted “YWP-ITY” on the side of the Janczewski house, notes Eagnews. Police say the letters are likely an acronym for “You will pay, I told you.”

The Janczewskis were among the most vocal residents pushing for the school board to remove the six current teachers and the school board member who showed support for Erickson.

At a summer school board meeting called to quell local furor, several parents promised to pull their kids from the school district unless the board immediately fired teachers who supported Erickson.

The school district opted to keep the teachers.

Meanwhile, John Janczewski continues to spearhead an effort to recall the school board member who sat with the child molester’s relatives in a show of support in open court.

Muslim Child Molester Claims He Didn’t Know Sex With A 13-Year-Old Girl Was Illegal, Receives No Jail Time

Muslim Abuser Who ‘Didn’t Know’ That Sex With A Girl Of 13 Was Illegal Is Spared Jail – Daily Mail

A muslim who raped a 13-year-old girl he groomed on Facebook has been spared a prison sentence after a judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.

…………………

Adil Rashid, 18, claimed he was not aware that it was illegal for him to have sex with the girl because his education left him ignorant of British law.

Yesterday Judge Michael Stokes handed Rashid a suspended sentence, saying: ‘Although chronologically 18, it is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters.’

Earlier Nottingham Crown Court heard that such crimes usually result in a four to seven-year prison sentence.

But the judge said that because Rashid was ‘passive’ and ‘lacking assertiveness’, sending him to jail might cause him ‘more damage than good’.

Rashid, from Birmingham, admitted he had sex with the girl, saying he had been ‘tempted by her’ after they met online.

They initially exchanged messages on Facebook before sending texts and chatting on the phone over a two-month period.

They then met up in Nottingham, where Rashid had booked a room at a Premier Inn.

The girl told police they stayed at the hotel for two hours and had sex after Rashid went to the bathroom and emerged wearing a condom.

Rashid then returned home and went straight to a mosque to pray. He was arrested the following week after the girl confessed what had happened to a school friend, who informed one of her teachers.

He told police he knew the girl was 13 but said he was initially reluctant to have sex before relenting after being seduced.

Earlier the court heard how Rashid had ‘little experience of women’ due to his education at an Islamic school in the UK, which cannot be named for legal reasons.

After his arrest, he told a psychologist that he did not know having sex with a 13-year-old was against the law. The court heard he found it was illegal only when he was informed by a family member.

In other interviews with psychologists, Rashid claimed he had been taught in his school that ‘women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground’.

When Judge Stokes said Rashid ‘must have known it was illegal, unless he was going round with his eyes shut’, defence lawyer Laban Leake said reports suggested Rashid had a ‘degree of sexual naivety’.

‘The school he attended, it is not going too far to say, can be described as a closed community and on this occasion this was perpetuated by his home life.

‘It is not too far to say that he may not have known that having sex with a 13-year-old girl was illegal.’ Judge Stokes sentenced Rashid to nine months youth custody, suspended for two years, along with a two-year probation supervision order.

Describing Rashid, the judge said: ‘He’s had an unusual education, certainly in terms of the sexual education provided. Comparing women to lollipops is a very curious way of teaching young men about sex.’

But he said that Rashid knew what he was doing was wrong.

‘It was made clear to you at the school you attended that having sexual relations with a woman before marriage was contrary to the precepts of Islam,’ he said.

Addressing Rashid, the judge said: ‘I accept this was a case where the girl was quite willing to have sexual activity with you. But the law is there to protect young girls, even though they are perfectly happy to engage in sexual activity.’
