Public Masturbation by Christian School Teacher & Occupy L.A.

Another sign that civilized society is falling apart at the seams.

A teacher at a suburban Christian school in Illinois has been charged with a felony, after he was fired for allegedly masturbating behind a podium while teaching class.

As reported by CBS2 Chicago, Nov. 15, 2011, last Friday, a student at Schaumburg Christian School, located at 200 N. Roselle Rd., reported to another teacher that 75-year-old math teacher, Paul LaDuke, appeared to be masturbating while seated at his podium during class.

The teacher notified the school administration, which launched an internal investigation. LaDuke was fired on Friday and, on Monday, school officials contacted Schaumburg police, who prompted charged the creep with sexual exploitation of a child. This morning, LaDuke’s bond was set at $40,000 at the Rolling Meadows Courthouse.

Police said Paul LaDuke, 75, might have been doing it for the past 10 years or more. Cook County assistant state’s attorney told the judge that prosecutors have a handwritten note from LaDuke, in which he admits to fantasizing about students.

LaDuke has been a math teacher at the school for 26 years, and is also an ordained minister.
