Alleged Child Abuse At Grand Junction School

A Redlands Middle School teacher has been charged with child abuse, third degree assault, second degree criminal tampering along with harassment. Mesa County Sheriff’s Office issued a Felony Summons for a 58 year-old teacher accused of these offenses in an incident back around January of this year. From a KKCO News report, the child is an at-risk student.
This obviously has parents all throughout District 51 about their own children’s saftey. Especially since, according to the report, this is not the first incident of this nature to happen here in the Valley.
Now, this shouldn’t cast a dark shadow over the teaching profession as a whole.

Parents of day care kids may never know extent of abuse

Parents at a Bear day care where a teacher was caught on video inappropriately touching three students may never find out if their children also were victims.

Anthony Rodriguez, a teacher there, was arrested in 2015. Parents whose children were not identified as victims in videotapes that alerted authorities to Rodriguez never learned of the abuse until they read about the 21-year-old’s guilty plea and sentencing in The News Journal this week. That lag, they say, robbed them of the chance to determine if anything happened to their children.

“I just want to make sure I do what I need to do as a parent, but now they took that away from me,” said Nicole Rittenhouse, a mother who withdrew her 6-year-old son from Kidz Ink II’s after-school program this week.

How Did a Fullerton Junior High Teacher Abuse Boys for Years Without Administrators Finding Out?

Melissa Nicole Lindgren looked every bit the eighth-grade-math teacher as she sat behind a table on the morning of Oct. 7, 2016. She wore a modest, baby-blue shirt with neatly rolled-up sleeves, pink-purple eye shadow and bright-red lipstick. Her eyebrows were smartly shaped; her straight brown hair, parted on the side and long outgrown of its layered cut, reached past her shoulders. A hair band squeezed around Lindgren’s wrist, and horn-rimmed glasses rested in front of her.

But the Lakewood native was far from her former classroom at Nicolas Junior High in Fullerton. Lindgren sat in the visitors’ center of Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF) in Chowchilla, the largest ladies prison in the United States.

District attorney’s office hires K-9 duo to help child abuse victims

The district attorney’s Bureau of Victim Services announced two unusual hires Monday to help support victims of child abuse and sexual assault.

New K-9 employees Skippy and Bert can be spotted walking around the downtown Hall of Justice with their handlers, Martha Carbajal and Ashley Meyers.

Skippy is a yellow Labrador retriever and Bert is a golden retriever and yellow lab mix.

Both are dubbed “facility dogs.” Unlike other K-9 teams trained to sniff out drugs, explosives and other dangers, facility dogs learn dozens of cues to help them work with victims of crime.

Scientific research shows that caressing an animal produces short-term decreases in blood pressure and heart rate and can also make people feel less lonely.

Libya exposed as an epicentre for migrant child abuse

The United Nations has warned that large numbers of children are still risking their lives to make the dangerous journey from Libya to Italy.
Unicef says almost 26,000 children – most of them unaccompanied – crossed the Mediterranean last year.
In its new report, Unicef says many children suffer from violence and sexual abuse at the hands of smugglers and traffickers.
But they rarely report their abuse, for fear of arrest and deportation.
The agency also says there is a lack of food, water and medical care in Libya’s detention centres.
The plight of children, many of them unaccompanied by parents, has become a tragically familiar part of the wider story of mass migration over the past two years.
