Commonly Asked Questions
Teacher and Sexual Misconduct Charges
A person who is a volunteer or an employee of a school or any other person who has direct contact with a student at a school commits a felony of the third degree when he engages in sexual intercourse, deviate sexual intercourse (contact between the sex organs of one person and the mouth or anus of another) or indecent contact with a student of the school.
If convicted, sentencing for sexually related charges can be extreme, including years of incarceration. Even if jail time is not part of the sentence, the Federal Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 made it a requirement that all states implement a sex offender registry. Most offenders, including those who only receive probation, are required to register as a sex offender. Required community notification can continue for life. A sexual offense felony likely means the end of a teaching career.
