Another Sexual Predator Arrested

You can breathe a sigh of relief. Another sexual predator has been arrested and taken out of circulation. This time, it’s not a teacher; it’s an assistant principal in Ste. Genevieve, Wisconsin.

Her name is Elizabeth Giesler. Read about the horrors she inflicted on a poor, innocent sixteen year old boy:

Elizabeth "Beth" Giesler, an assistant principal for Ste. Genevieve Schools, is being charged with three counts of Class E felony sexual contact with a student, three counts of a Class D felony of statutory sodomy in the second degree and two counts of statutory rape in the second degree….

According to a probable cause statement signed by Trooper T.S. Craig, on May 18 the student told Craig that Giesler performed a sexual act on him at her residence in Ste. Genevieve County between April 7-8 during the Riverdog Tourney.

He also said that they engaged in sexual intercourse and sexual acts twice between April and May. These incidents also allegedly occurred at her residence.

Apparently, the boy’s parents thought that she would be a good influence on him. Plaintively, they exclaimed said that they trusted her. 

“She talked to us about my son and stuff like this, what she can do for him through life, you know, give him a better life ... so she was going to try to make sure he got on the right path," the father said in an interview with the television station.

I guess it all depends on what you mean by the right path.

This sort of thing was once some teen-aged boy's dream. No longer.

Tongue-in-cheek blog posts aside, I doubt that many young men of 16 years believe that they would be seriously harmed by receiving the sexual attentions of an (attractive) older woman (Elizabeth Giesler is 39.) I share this doubt: at 16, one is a youth too old to be called a boy, for purposes of mating-and-dating, anyway.

This is not to say that I think that the Elizabeth Gieslers of the world deserve no censure whatsoever. They are abusing the trust that their employer, public school system X, has placed in them. These grown women, not mere teenage girls, are also abusing the trust of their young lovers' parents, certainly, in a way that a classmate who became sexually involved with their son could not, even if said classmate lied to her lover's parents about the nature of her relationship with their son.

Sure, the joke is that there can be no psychological trauma in cases like these, and it silly to protect willing boys from attractive adult women, and heck, it worked out for President Macron, but it has to be trouble.

Regardless of gender, the difficulty in accusations like this is they are he-said-she-said, where one party is an adult, and the other a minor, so without strong evidence of dishonesty, or strong evidence of what happened, we're forced to believe the minor rather than the adult, then the adult is effectively guilty-until-proven-innocent. But I suppose these things are often not caught on a first time, so if one steps forward you can hope for more after it is publicized.

But if you don't want to be accused, anyone who wants to spend time with kids not their own in any context must learn how to be defensive, nor letting themselves be alone with kids in any private setting, always have another adult present. I was warned 20 years ago when I worked with a teacher on an after school computer club at a local elementary school, and some kids were interested in continuing over the summer. I was very unaware of such things back then, while now I've heard enough cases that the need is crystal clear.
