GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — University Prep Academy math teacher Jamila Williams will be charged with four counts of third degree Criminal Sexual Conduct according to a press release from the Grand Rapids Police Department.

According to the release, that teacher is  accused of sexually assaulting two male students, one 15 and the other 16 years old, between March 1 and June 1 at multiple locations in Grand Rapids.  She is expected to turn herself into the authorities within the next day.

These charges follow a letter sent home to University Prep parents yesterday from Grand Rapids Public Schools Superintendent Teresa Weatherall saying that a teacher was placed on administrative leave after accusations from several parents.

This incident is currently one of two involving sexual matters with adult employees in Grand Rapids Public Schools.  The other involves Kevin Dengel, a Sherwood Park Elementary paraprofessional who was charged yesterday with six counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct, including three second degree charges.

    While terrible, this is nothing compared to the financial rape Amway has committed against millions of people for the past 4 decades. Amway doesn't have the ethical or moral authority to be in business. For more information visit my blog by googling "Stop The Amway Tool Scam WordPress" and forward the blog link to every non-Distributor/IBO you know, so they don't get financially raped.

    Has anyone else noticed that ALL THREE of the pedophiles plaguing GRPS have been "culturally competent" nepotism hires by Dr. Taylor?

    University Prep is interesting any ways because they significantly increased their school's educational numbers…….but only until they got their funding for their new building. Then they slipped. Probably because they felt it was okay to let go of some of their students since the school changes it's status type with the new building. Maybe some would say that might be a good thing with kids like that. But I'm guessing the number of teachers returning next school year will only dwindle by just this one.
