Melody Lippert and Michelle Ghirelli, two Covina, California high school teachers were arrested Saturday night after purportedly sexually engaging students from the high school where they both taught at.
A report via CBS discloses how South Hills High School teacher Melody Lippert, 38, met up with a group of male students at a beach in San Clemente in November of last year.
From there Lippert according to deputies gave the group alcohol and then engaged in a sexual act with one of the students.
But it gets better, way better…
Afterwards, Lippert reportedly made plans to meet up with the students a second time at the same spot, bringing along another teacher 30-year-old Michelle Ghirelli.
A student’s wet dream or two malevolent teachers exploiting their position and authority?
Police reports tell that the two teachers met up with several of the same group, spending a night on the beach during which they had sex with two students.
According to CBS, the West Covina Police Department alerted deputies at the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Friday with information about the encounters, which had occurred in their jurisdiction.
No further information about the victims or the incident has been released, though authorities noted the encounters were not during events sponsored by the school or district.
Covina-Valley Unified School District spokeswoman Michelle Van Der Linden would today tell both women had been put on paid administrative leave and removed from the classroom as of Sunday.
‘As soon as we found out about this, we contacted the Police Department. We’re taking the matter very, very seriously,’ Van Der Linden said. A voice message from the South Hills High principal was sent to parents at the school Sunday to inform them of the developments, she added.
Lippert has since been charged with conspiracy and contributing to the delinquency of a minor and held on $20,000 bond for while Ghirelli charged with copulation and unlawful sex with a minor and held on $50 000 bail.
Both women are scheduled to appear in court for their arraignments on Wednesday. Interestingly Lippert’s twitter handle has since been yanked off line. Can anyone guess why?
