Slut-Shaming Teacher At Christian School Arrested For Sexually Assaulting Students
More of that “Christian love” – A teacher at a Chicago-area Christian school who shamed her students for their lack of modesty has been arrested for sexual assault and solicitation of child pornography.
Shannon Griffin, 49, a pastor’s wife and a teacher at a private Christian school in the suburbs of Chicago, “has been charged with sexual assault and solicitation of child pornography stemming from alleged encounters with two underage students, the Cook County sheriff’s office announced Tuesday.”
Chicago CBS reports:
The Cook County Sheriff announced criminal sexual assault charges against a teacher and pastor’s wife at a Burbank private school Tuesday.
Shannon Griffin, 49, of Oak Lawn, has been charged with five counts of criminal sexual assault, one count solicitation of child pornography, one count of distribution of harmful materials, and one count of grooming. According to Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, her alleged conduct involved two juvenile students at Jordan Baptist School.
Students report that Griffin would often lecture and discipline female students who failed to dress and act with “modesty.” For example, one student, Yhaneera Aparicio-Armas, told ABC News:
She (Griffin) would write me up and other girls and, like, how ironic that you’re telling us how to dress, us how to be modest, and be Christian women, and you turn around doing the exact opposite.
According to reports, Griffin began to sexually assault and sexually harass her students as early as 2013. Current charges include sexual assault on a minor as well as sending nude pictures and videos of herself to several male students. She is also charged with distribution of harmful materials and grooming.
