We don't foresee him being a member of the Mormon Church for much longer…
A 27-year-old sixth grade in teacher Phoenix was arrested late last week for having a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old student of his.
Kenne Worthen is married with a two-year-old daughter, but allegedly started flirting with his pupil back in August.
The relationship turned sexual in January, and when he had the girl stay after school on April 10, the rest of her classmates became suspicious.
When the students came forward with their claims, both Kenne and the minor admitted to the crime and apparently kept in contact via Google Hangouts where Kenne used the fake name Jesse Smith. Kenne was charged with sexual exploitation for a minor, child molestation, and sexual conduct with a minor, and has since been denied bond.
Thankfully, police do not believe there were any other victims.
It's a good thing the girl's friends came forward — Who knows what could have happened had Kenne not been stopped!?
