    TX - 4th Grade Teacher Requires Students To Become Penpals With Child Molestor

    The pen pal is Ricky Ray Rowlett, a man accused then convicted of raping a girl under the age of 14. Rowlett was sentenced to 50 years in prison for the crime.

    The teacher at Houston’s Trinity Lutheran, however, is a family friend of Rowlett who believed he was wrongly accused. As a part of a class project, the teacher required students to share info with the inmate like their full names, description of their appearance, and their favorite things to do. The assignment only came to light when investigators happened to find the letters in Rowlett’s cell. The school’s administration was quickly notified, and fired the teacher immediately. The Trinity Lutheran principal was also placed on paid leave.

    From the OP link:

    The assignment only came to light when investigators happened to find the letters in Rowlett’s cell.
    Not one of these kids mentioned the assignment to their parent(s)? That is sad.

    But perhaps the "teacher" did not mention that the letters were going to a prison inmate.

    And how did the letters get to the inmate's cell? Thru regular mail policies in the prison administration? I thought all mail was read by administration before giving to the inmates? Maybe some more heads need to roll.

    Angry

    As a molestation victim, this story really outrages me! What was this teacher thinking? Especially not telling the parents???
    She deserves more than firing!
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    If exTeach would like to send me her name and address, a description and a list of what she likes to do I know a few rapists who would love to have her as a pen pal. They will tell her they aren't guilty too.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Children that young didn't inform parents they were writing to someone in jail? Did she have them write during class?
    Just my opinion

    Records show Perry's husband is currently being investigated on child pornography charges.

    They say the Houston teacher's father even testified on Rowlett's behalf during the punishment phase of his trial.

    How sickening. Children don't need to be writing any strangers at all whether they're nuns in another country or inmates. Also, they are way too young to understand or even need to know that some people can be wrongly accused then locked up. Not that this inmate was actually wrongly accused just because some woman thinks he was. I wonder if she knew him before prison or if she became one of those prison girlfriends being manipulated.

    WTactualF???

    Good grief... I mean... Okay, I see that they're a religious school. I can possibly see older students, say, high school age, who, as part of religion curriculum, correspond with a NON VIOLENT INMATE (thinking of how, in the Catholic faith, "visiting the imprisoned" is one of the corporal works of mercy), with no personal info, and letters monitored, etc.

    But fourth graders? Corresponding with a convicted child abuser? And giving personal details??

    I say again... WTactualF....was this woman thinking?

    Of course, with the additional info now out, looks suspiciously like it was maybe a way to find new victims for her husband?

    I read the thread topic and thought it must be a joke. That teacher should be jailed, charged with child endangerment. Come on!

    snipped:

    For several months, the students shared personal information in the letters, including full names, what they look like and hobbies. They even expressed a desire to meet the molester once he is released.

    It is not clear whether all the letters have been recovered, and there are fears they may have been shared with other inmates charged with sex crimes.
    That makes my stomach clinch up with fear for these kids.

    Didn't we have a thread on this a few months ago with Christmas cards? Is this the same case or another one?
