8. Home-School Teacher's Assault


Joseph Maddock, a 33-year-old teacher in Lake St. Louis, allegedly put his hand down his ten-year-old student's pants and touched him inappropriately -- inside the student's home.

Maddock had met the student a year ago while teaching third grade at Andrews Academy in Lake St. Louis and the teacher convinced the boy's parents to have him home-school the student full-time the following academic year, police say.

In yet another case of sexual misconduct in a school, Cahokia High School assistant teacher and coach Mario Hunt allegedly had sexual contact with a minor -- knowing he was HIV positive.

Once he was caught, the fact that he may have exposed the youth to HIV made the charges all the more serious.
