Teacher in North St. Paul admits trying to turn disabled student into prostitute
pioneer press ^ | 11-27-11 | ap

Posted on 11/27/2011 6:46:11 PM PST by WOBBLY BOB

A substitute teacher for a special-education school in North St. Paul has admitted to trying to sway a student to engage in prostitution.

Tameshia Leeann Allen-Hodges, 23, of Oakdale was accused of bringing a 21-year-old female student with developmental disabilities to her home, where she took photos of the student in lingerie and suggested she perform sex acts for money.

The photos were posted online with the student's contact information.

The student told police she received multiple calls and said at least one man came to Allen-Hodges' apartment, though the student said she did not engage in any physical contact with him, according to a criminal complaint.

Police searched Allen-Hodges' cellphone and found seven photos of the scantily clad student dated April 22. Allen-Hodges admitted she posted them online, the complaint said.

Allen-Hodges was charged in Washington County District Court with inducing an individual to engage in prostitution and sex trafficking, both felonies.

She pleaded guilty to the prostitution charge Wednesday. She will be sentenced March 7.

This is 2 adult women of relatively the same age and apparently, the same low functioning cognitive skill set. Looks like Tameshia got a job she had no business getting, and the school district (IE: taxpayer) is going to pay for that. Time for a re-boot on the HR process o there and add a comprehensive criminal background check if they don't already have one.

Reads like more than just suggesting a mildly retarded adult student to be a prostitute. That would be unseemly but not illegal. The teacher wanted to be her pimp! (But, neither one would be in the 1% (vis a vis OWS).)

The teacher/student (position of authority) thing makes it more criminal.

That would be unseemly but not illegal.... I mean the talk, assuming it also suggested the student were to go somewhere the prostitution itself would be legal, i.e. Nevada.

It’s still very much a what the hell moment. I don’t know what the student’s legal age was believed to be. That is abusive of the teacher, morally if not legally.

Are there female pimps? Sounds like this teacher had big plans to be one. That poor student needs a good wholesome adult figure in her life. I hope she gets one who will not take advantage of her.

OMG we have a society full of very, very sick people. Every day there is a story of some adult involved in some sexual abuse scandal. So much emphasis on "feeling good and getting a thrill" for years seems to have led to a nation full of perverts whose lives revolve around being sexually satisfied.

It is disgusting how low our morals have sunk and how important one's sex life has become. I am sick of hearing these things, sick of knowing if someone prefers to have a same-sex partner; and sick of adults who have no control and abuse children (homo an heterosexual adults alike).

No wonder America's productivity and intellectual status has slipped. Thousands are just too focused on having orgasms rather than doing things that stimulate their brains or doing something worthwhile.

I could quite easily see how this teacher thought in a twisted way she was doing her pupil good.

But it’s about as seemly a “redemption” as in the musical “Gypsy Rose Lee” where the emotionally abused girl grows up to be a strip teaser. Any of you folks ever see that one? Believe it or not my high school did that as a musical in the mid seventies... and this was in a rather prudish Southern community. No I didn’t have any input into that decision, but I wasn’t a Christian yet. I blush to say I was the piano player for the strip teaser in the play! (Of course they didn’t really strip in the play. But still.)

I blush to say I was the piano player for the strip teaser in the play!

.. but again, I also remember the very touching piece “Little Lamb” where the girl, before she was brought up into strip teasing, sang to a lamb (we had a real one) about how she did not know how old she was on her birthday, because her abusive, bossy show biz mother, Rose, kept telling her it was number 5 year after year. (I was asked to play piano for that one too because the band was unable to cope with the key it was scored in.) And it all flew right over my head, how they could look at such damage being done (even in a drama) and not care. I’m weeping to think of it. Nobody got the point.

"that’s why they need unions."

Think about it.

Do you really want to patronize a unionized prostitute?

Between the work rules and the stupid seniority system you'll end up diddling some 60 y.o. named Edith while paying for the required police detail to direct traffic outside your place of sin. No thanks.

Give me the free market please.

Like they do it in the Philippines. Thank you very much.

Actually the history of "home made" names dates back to the South, where creative and unique names (mostly for girls) were once relatively common for white as well as black Southerners. One common tactic was to combine the parents' first names--eg Steve and Evelyn as Stevelyn. The recent Black fashion has been to incorporate an African sounding slant. But it is something they brought with them from the Old South. Don't see where it hurts anything.

Today the morphed names chiefly live as ghetto names with, as you said, an Afro slant. Meanwhile we now know the southern redneck thing as Billy-Bob, Cindy-Sue, and the like.

The socially redeeming feature of the resulting movie is that it made me fall in love with Natalie Wood.

That’s what I thought Centerplate Concessions was.

It does not appear to me that someone with no more than a high school diploma can be a substitute teacher in Minnesota.

That reminds me of the names of Scarlett O’Hara’s sisters in “Gone With The Wind”! If you’ve seen the movie or read the book, Scarlett’s sisters have combined names like that. One of them was Suellen and the other was Carreen. (sp?) Suellen was “Susanne-Eleanor” and Carreen was “Caroline-Irene”. This explanation was explained in the book, but not in the film. Their father was an Irish immigrant, the mother was born in USA, but was of a French family from Louisianna!
