MD - Teacher Ethan Estevez charged with sex abuse of 17yo student, Harford Co., 2014
Thirty-one-year-old Ethan Richard Estevez, a former teacher in the Harford County school system, now faces life behind bars. Back in March, police charged him with sex abuse of a minor amidst allegations he was having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.
“He was a teacher and this was a student in the school where he was a teacher,” said Joe Cassilly, Harford County state’s attorney...
Now Cassilly says there’s evidence Estevez and that student were plotting to murder his wife. “It’s not the kind of thing that we would charge lightly,” Cassilly said.
One message from the student said, "Like it has to look like an accident because of life insurance and stuff...," according to the documents. In other messages, the student also said she would "just need it to really happen before [Sunday]."
In later interviews, according to charging documents, the student told detectives she "really was not gonna kill" Estevez's wife. The girl said Estevez allegedly talked to her a few times about it, but she thought he was joking around.
In July, an unidentified person the girl had texted told detectives that Estevez allegedly explained someone would need to drive by in a dark vehicle, shoot a gun with a silencer, shoot his wife first and then shoot him in the arm to make it look more random, according to the charging documents.

A former Harford County Public Schools teacher, charged with plotting to kill his wife so he could be with a student with whom he was having a sexual relationship, pleaded guilty to two counts of fourth-degree sex offense. In exchange, prosecutors dropped charges of sex abuse of a minor and soliciting someone to commit murder against Ethan Richard Estevez...
Waldron sentenced him to one year in jail on each fourth-degree sex offense count, the maximum period of incarceration for each... He also will serve five years probation following his release and will be required to register as a sex offender for 15 years. He was ordered to pay court costs and not have contact with the victims in the case.

2 years in jail is all the incarceration time this man gets? Dropped the solicitation of murder charge? Man, that does not seem right. They must have had very little evidence to prove it. I hope the wife on whom he was cheating is level-headed enough to make wise decisions to protect herself.One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.
