Teacher Accused Of 'Sexual Contact' With Student

Monday, November 27, 2006

MISSION VIEJO, Calif. -- An English teacher at Trabuco Hills High School was free on bond Monday while authorities investigated allegations that she had "substantial sexual contact" with a male student, a sheriff's spokesman said.

Alyssa Ann Johnson, 31, of Tustin, was arrested Wednesday evening at her home by sheriff's investigators, who received word of the allegation through officials at the Mission Viejo school, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino.

"We heard about it through school social services," he said. "He took an English class from her.
Amormino declined to release any additional information that could identify the youth, other than to say that he is "older than 14 and younger than 18."

Johnson, who was booked on suspicion of oral copulation, posted $50,000 bond and was released on Thanksgiving Day, Amormino said.

Johnson has been placed on administrative leave from the job she held about four years, the spokesman said.

Farrah Emami of the Orange County District Attorney's Office said the case has not yet been presented to her office for charges.

Although it's not as common, women molest and abuse children too. A lot of the time the suspicion is written off as part of normal child care duties and hygiene. Also, when women abuse teenage boys, men often think of it as 'cool' or laugh it off saying how 'lucky' the boy is.

By denying that women molest young boys, these young men are not helped in understanding that sex between adults and children is wrong. When it's okay for a 30 year old female to take a 14 year old boy as a lover, why should it be considered wrong for the boy when he turns 30 to take a 14 year old girl as a lover?

It's time to stop giving these female teachers a 'slap on the wrist'. They are abusing kids. They are abusing their power and they are criminals. They deserve the same punishment as a man who abuses young girls.
