It’s been a while since we have profiled a naughty female gym teacher here at BadJocks (the most famous, of course, was Pamela Rogers) but this 28-year-old redhead from Idaho, and mother of two, might start a new trend. Not a lot of details yet, but we expect to hear more when the former “Teacher of the Week”, Kari Atkinson, has her preliminary hearing on September 16. That’s her mug shot at right with the straight hair and the serious look, and below when her hair was curly and she wasn’t in jail.
28-year old Kari Atkinson, a P.E. teacher at Sandcreek Middle School was arrested yesterday at the school for an alleged sexual encounter with a 14-year old male student. The Sheriff’s Office received the information from an anonymous tip.
“Detectives went out and interviewed the victim as well as the suspect based on that, they filed arrest charges for lewd and lascivious conduct with a child under 16,” explains Sgt. Doug Metcalf of the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office. The Bonneville County Prosecuting Attorney has filed 5 counts of lewd conduct against the teacher.
Atkinson was featured on Eyewitness News back in November as our “Outstanding Teacher of the Week”.
