A Chicago teacher, 75-year-old Paul LaDuke, was charged with a felony for masturbating behind a podium during class.
A student told another teacher that she thought he was doing some sort of lewd conduct behind the podium. When the teacher notified administration, LaDuke was fired on Friday and school officials called police. He was then arrested after detectives interviewed several students and has since been charged with sexual exploitation of a child.
What's even worse is that police say that the math teacher was engaging in this type of behavior for over a decade!! After his arrest, he had written a note, admitting that he fantasized about female students while masturbating in class for the pas 10 years.
He's currently being held on $40,000 bond. His defense attorney states that he has dementia, which in our opinion, is still not an excuse for this type of behavior to be allowed in school - FOR TEN YEARS.
So gross. The student who notified another teacher should be applauded for stepping forward.
