Hundreds of Chicago teachers and school officials were part of a massive pedophile ring where thousands of children were raped, according to a new report.
The Chicago Public Schools Office of the Inspector General released its annual report last week, declaring that it substantiated thousands of rape allegations from students for the 2021-22 school year.
Foxnews.com reports: An OIG investigation concluded one teacher groomed and sexually assaulted a 17-year-old student three times. That teacher was charged with multiple counts of sexual assault. After a November 2022 trial, the teacher was acquitted on all counts, the report said, despite evidence provided by the student and social media records.
Another investigation revealed a former JROTC staff member had sex with a high school girl over the course of a year when she was 16 to 17 years old, the report said. The girl was also given alcohol and marijuana and purchased marijuana for him, the OIG said.
The pair also exchanged hundreds of text messages and calls.
“I’m ready to f— right now … I’m not gonna be gentle either,” one message read, the report said.
When the staff member became aware he might be under investigation, he allegedly threatened to kill the girl and her family. He was arrested and eventually sentenced to time served and four years probation after pleading guilty to sexual assault and criminal sexual abuse.
One high school teacher allegedly exchanged 4,000 text messages with a female student, including 400 in one day. The teacher said he was in an open marriage and was “attracted to other people.”
Other incidents included a high school gym teacher exposing himself to a female student.
One charter school administrator took a high school junior to a Broadway play in downtown Chicago when he touched her leg during the performance, the report said. After the show, while driving the student home, he “slid his hand down inside of the front of the student’s pants and touched his genitals.”
