ST. PAUL (WCCO) — A substitute teacher is behind bars after pleading guilty to attempting to groom a special-needs student for prostitution.

According to the Pioneer Press, 33-year-old Tameshia Allen-Hodges, of Oakdale, pleaded guilty to felony charges on Wednesday.

Allen-Hodges taught at a school in North St. Paul.

She was accused of bringing home a 21-year-old female student with developmental disabilities, taking pictures of her in lingerie and suggesting she perform sex acts for money.

She will be sentenced in March.

    Public school teachers, percentage-wise, are far worse than priests when it comes to abuse.

    I’m really surprised the media reported this.

        Local News are just the Bishops covering up DFL teachers union sex abuse.

        If this had been a Priest, it would have been a headline story on WCCO.

    And what…PRIVATE school teachers would NEVER do something like this, right? Blame it all on the public sector…

      How many public schools have 21 year old students in?….

      I can’t say that I have ever heard a story of a private school teacher being involved with sexual activities with children but I am sure it happens.

      Teachers are all taught at far left liberal colleges that seem more interested in social matters and union politics than teaching in their fields of study. Whether they go on to work at a public or private school, they still all go through the same colleges where they are brainwashed and taught the socialist ways that colleges embrase and promote.

        It’s liberal “Arts and Humanities” Bible Banging — Taxpayers are being forced to respect an establishment of Arts and Humanities Religion.

        Public Schools and Universities are State “Multi-Culturalism” Churches, where the world will end from Global Warming if we do not worship their rainbow and recycle symbols.

    Lucifer….Really? What college did you get your education degree from? I’m a teacher and I am not included in your “ALL” statement. Putting a blanket statement over millions of people whom you probably know very little about is extremely shallow. I pity you for not being more open-minded. I was, however, taught to spell correctly as you obviously weren’t.

    As a mother of a son with down syndrome I am very leary of who my son is alone with!! The State of MN is trying to cut reimbursement by 20% when family members do respite for the disabled-one of my arguments against it is the added stress of having respite done by strangers!!

    1. Dynamo says:

      No, the state (who I work for) is not trying to cut reimbursement by 20%. Where did you get that figure? Evidence please, or retract your false claim. And why should a family get reimbursed for caring for their child? It’s called responsibility. Maybe you shouldn’t have had children if you didn’t want them full-time.
