From the Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune: A 39-year-old Vesper man, who is a teacher in the Stevens Point Area Public School District, was charged today in Wood County Circuit Court after authorities say he sexually assaulted a teenage girl multiple times.
Paul A. Peterson, a technology education teacher at Stevens Point Area Senior High, faces charges of repeated sexual assault of a child and exposing his genitals to a child. He remains in the Wood County Jail on a $250,000 cash bond and must have no contact with any girls.
In the olden days before the anti-public employee union law passed this year, the Stevens Point Area School District teacher's union would have defended this dirt bag, especially if was able to get out of jail. He probably would have been placed on paid administrative leave until the case was cleared.
Now, the school district can fire him, if they choose, and the union will not be able to defend him. And they will be able to fire him tomorrow, if they choose. Not so, before the anti-public union law was in effect.
So, besides the law saving money for school districts and other local governments, it will also get scum bags out of a school district a lot faster.
Thank you, Scott Walker.
