Why do some many female teachers do this?!
This news is shocking, but so terribly familiar: yet another female school teacher has been found to be a child predator. Not only did she groom her students to be able susceptible too assault, they felt compelled to comply with her demands because their grades depended on it.
Fortunately, Yokasta’s schemes were foiled, but the obscene photos and videos she bombarded her victims with have been released by the angry young boys. Yokasta has no defense for being a criminal.
All Too Familiar
Teachers worldwide are relied upon by parents to help educate the next generation. They certainly aren’t paid to flirt with, harass, then attack the children they are in charge of. Yet every single year, women and men in the education profession are found to be doing just that. So many stories of older women and young boys have come out in recent years that it seems like no teacher can truly be trusted with their students.
There are dozens of high-profile cases involving female teachers who took an illicit interest in their charges. Convicted criminal Debra LaFave said that she victimized a 14-year-old boy because she was bipolar and hypersexual. Teacher Mary Kay Letourneau’s victim was just 12 years old, and she gave birth to his child. She attacked him again after her short prison sentence, and became pregnant by him a second time. When she was finally released, he had come of age and they were wed.
Texas teacher Alexandria Vera became pregnant by her 13-year-old student, but aborted the baby not wanting to get caught. She was sentenced to ten years in prison.
At a school in Medellin, Colombia, a 40-year-old married woman named Yokasta M. was employed as a teacher. She was less interested in shaping the minds of her pupils and more interested in victimizing them to fulfill her illegal fantasies.
Yokasta gained private access to the boys by asking them for their contact information so that she could help them with their studies. Instead of tutoring them, she started sending out racy and provocative semi-nude and totally nude pictures and videos to her male students on WhatsApp.The exact number of victims is unknown, but there may be up to 40.
Yokasta would then entice the children to meet her at her apartment.
The boys who showed up to her place were instructed to perform sex acts — the punishment for refusing was a failing grade in their school courses. Yokasta preyed upon the school-aged teens between January and April of 2016, but it finally came to an end when a parent found out what she was doing. One of the boy’s father checked his son’s phone, and found the salacious photos of Yokasta. The police were informed, and Yokasta was promptly arrested for her crimes.
In addition to being sentenced to up to 40 years in prison, Yokasta has been divorced by her husband. After her arrest, the boys she assaulted posted the photos she sent them online, saying, “This is the teacher Yokasta, who tells us that she disapproves of us if we do not have relations with her” (according to Daily Mail).
What do you think that Yokasta’s sentence should be for coercing her students to have sex with her? Let us know in the comments and SHARE this story about another criminal teacher.
