Readers will remember the case of Rebecca Diebolt, the California teacher charged with having a lesbian affair with a teenage student.
Now brace yourself for the unexpected plot twist:
Perhaps no one is more blown away by a teacher’s arrest for allegedly molesting a female student starting when the girl was 15 than the woman’s colleagues who just attended her baby shower.
Teachers at Valencia High School in Placentia speaking with the Weekly under condition of anonymity say 35-year-old Rebecca Eileen Diebolt of Brea is pregnant.
Actually, this plot twist should not be so unexpected. Many of the women arrested on lesbian molestation charges seem to be otherwise heterosexual, and some of them are married mothers. To cite one recent example, Florida dance teacher Nichol Marie Phelps was a married mother of two when she molested a 15-year-old student.
What’s wrong with these women? Are they “bi-curious,” and just happen to express their same-sex curiosity with underage girls? Or are they closeted lesbians whose “straight” marriages are socially-approved camouflage to create an appearance of normality they use to get access to young girls in predatory stealth mode? Could it be that such cases are just symptomatic of polymorphous perversity?
We don’t know. Female sex offenders aren’t as widely studied as their male counterparts, and most of the testimony we have from the perpetrators is offered in court hearings where the defendant has a motive to minimize or justify their criminal behavior. So we have very little guidance to answer the key questions, “What the hell were you thinking?” and “How did you become such a perverted weirdo?”
A Florida teacher and her 58-year-old boyfriend have been accused of sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl.
Kimberly Honaker, 48, had been charged on [May 31] with child neglect for allegedly failing to intervene to stop Robert Pruitt sexually abusing a child.
But on [June 3] Honaker, who has been suspended from the middle school she worked at for 17 years, was arrested again over claims that she had also molested the young girl.
When the language teacher was arrested for a second time, she was charged with lewd molestation and the use of a child in a sexual performance. . . .
The couple were arrested after Pruitt’s ex-wife alerted police to Facebook messages, texts and emails that suggested an inappropriate relationship was taking place.
Pruitt had moved in with Honaker, who he has known for years, in May. Police described the house they shared as being filthy and containing 20 dogs.
Honaker, a mom to twin girls, has been banned from the school campus and is expected to have her pay suspended at the next school meeting, a district spokesman told the Orlando Sentinel. . . .
Police told Click Orlando that Pruitt’s ex-wife had kicked him out of their home earlier this year after suspecting him of having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old.
He then moved in with Honaker, who is accused of allowing the abuse to continue over the next few weeks.
