Florida Female Teacher From Charter School Arrested for Sex With Boy, 14 - Irene Khan
For those of you who aren't familiar with them, charter schools are like private schools, but they're provided public funds. They're kind of like alternatives to public schools in those areas where the parents would rather send their kids. And, it appears, the teachers at charter schools are just as sexually attracted to their students as teachers at the public schools.
Take for instance Irene Khan, 32, a teacher at West Melbourne's Imagine Charter School, who was arrested this week after investigators claim she had sex multiple times with a 14-year-old boy who was one of her students. At the very least, Khan was creative in the locations for their trysts. According to police, the couple hooked up in her apartment, her car, and several hotels and motels.
Detectives said after speaking with the 14-year-old who attended West Melbourne's Imagine Charter School, they had enough proof the science teacher had enticed the boy and had sex with him several times last school year in several different places. “Her apartment, her car, several hotels and motels, places like that, beachside,” Wilkinson said.
Khan's credit card records showed at least two hotel transactions totaling $230. Detectives said through the boy's account, they corroborated hotel days and times, and even phone records.
Authorities said the first encounter was after the boy had written his phone number on a classroom chalkboard, intended for a girl in his class. Instead, they said Khan texted him, introducing herself and asking if he wanted to hang out.
A couple nights later, according to police, she drove her car to his house, parked down the street away from his home. The boy walked down. They then drove to a nearby park and had sex inside the vehicle.
