Teacher Collected Abnormally Large Paycheck While Having Illicit Affairs With Students (Photo)

A teacher is supposed to be a mentor and strong leader for students as they go through an awkward stage of life. However, this was not the case for a 37-year-old eighth-grade math teacher named Nicole Wilfinger after she was accused of multiple charges of sexual misconduct with students at Las Vegas Molasky Junior High School.

Ms. Wilfinger is not the first teacher to take advantage of her students, being one of many recent cases of teacher/student sexual misconduct. Ms. Wilfinger is being charged with one count of sexual seduction by a person older than 21, one count of engaging in sexual conduct with a student between 16 and 17 as well as one count of sexual conduct with a student between the age of 14 and 15.

Ms. Wilfinger also faces charges of lewdness with a 14-year-old child. These despicable acts were met with horror from parents, students and other teachers at Molasky Junior High School after they were informed of her arrest.

The public was even more stunned when Ms. Wilfinger’s yearly salary was revealed, showing that she was earning up to $77,156.44 while she used her position at the school to pursue elicit affairs with her students.

Unfortunately, cases like Ms. Wilfinger’s are becoming far too frequent. Studies conducted in 2014 revealed an alarming increase in student/teacher affairs, with 781 reported cases of teachers or other school employees being accused or convicted of illegal sexual conduct with students.

Professionals suspect that with the rise of social media, students are far more accessible to teachers who may be looking to instigate relationships with students. Horrifyingly, social media was the catalyst for approximately 36% of confirmed relationships between students and teachers.

To prevent these sort of incidents, stricter laws have been implemented and enforced, preventing teachers and students from ‘friending’ one another on any social media outlet while they remain in the care of the teacher.
