In Minooka, Illinois, a teacher by the name of Kyle Camp, has been charged with the predatory criminal sexual assault of a child. According to The Epoch Times, the 36-year-old engaged in sexual activity with a 12-year-old in the past month.
In addition to teaching social studies at Dirksen Junior High School in Joliet, Camp also coached basketball and soccer, police said.
On Friday, a Joliet police detective was reportedly told by a Joliet West High School student that Camp had sex with a 12-year-old. The child’s sister spoke with detectives and officers were sent to Dirksen to interview Camp, police said.
By the time the cops got there, school officials had already removed Camp from the junior high, police said. Officers then went to his home on Maplewood Drive in Minooka and took him into custody.
Camp was placed on paid administrative leave, according to Joliet Public Schools District 86.
“As soon as we heard a complaint, we immediately asked [Camp] to leave,” Joliet Public Schools District 86 spokeswoman Sandy Zalewski told the Herald-News.
