According to a report in 11Alive, a Carroll County, Georgia teacher at Mt. Zion Elementary School has been arrested for child molestation. 30-year-old Amelia Ressler has been charged with 19 counts of child sexual abuse after she “allegedly” pleasured herself in front of nineteen 8-year-old children during class!
The vile incident took place on January 28 at some point during the school day. The school would not elaborate on exactly what she did outside of the description of “pleasuring herself”. The Carroll County Sherriff’s Office was tipped off by staff at the school after receiving complaints of misconduct.
According to the affidavit, “a person commits the offense of child molestation when such person does any immoral or indecent act to or in the presence of or with any child under the age of 16 years with the intent to arouse or satisfy the sexual desires of either the child or the person.”
The New York Post reported that Ressler allegedly recorded herself in the act and disseminated the video. Carroll County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Ashley Hulsey slammed the 30-year-old school teacher calling her inappropriate behavior “disturbing.”
“Where she was sitting, it wasn’t like it was a closed desk and [the kids] couldn’t look up and visually see what she was doing at the time,” Hulsey told news station CBS46.
Ressler now faces felony charges for each student that was present during the incident and will remain in jail until her upcoming court appearance.
