The Bible says "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap" (Galations 6:7) and it looks like one Florida teacher had to learn that the hard way. Corey French, 30, was arrested and charged with two felony counts of unlawful sex acts for having sexual relationships with two students in his Duval high school class.
When the two girls found out about each other, they decided to take a little field trip to tell French's wife!
Via First Coast News:
"According to a just released Duval school district investigative report, the two students, who have since graduated, told the wife of the teacher, Corey French, of the affairs and showed her photos and screenshots of messages with him to prove it.
The wife, Alexandra French, who also teaches in Duval, told district officials, touching off a criminal and district investigation last March.
French, who resigned in May, faces two felony charges and a court date for next month.
In a twist, when police tried to arrest him in late September, Alexandra French tried to stop them, police said, and both were charged with resisting arrest without violence. Both pleaded not guilty Oct. 24.
Their attorney, Melinda Patterson, said her clients are innocent of resisting arrest and Corey French denies having sexual relationships with the girls.
“He is maintaining his innocence across the board,” Patterson said, adding Corey French already agreed to turn himself in prior to the arrest, which contributed to the confusion.
Duval school officials released their investigative file on Corey French on Tuesday. In great detail, it outlines how the four-year science teacher allegedly convinced each girl to have a relationship with him.
One girl was 17 when she met French in April 2017. She didn’t have him as a teacher, but his class was a hang-out for students, the report said; French had a “good reputation with the students.”
One girls says the relationship started when the two of them connected on Twitter. Corey French confessed to her that he had feelings for her that were more than just that of a teacher. Within a few weeks they'd kissed while hiking alone together and first had sex while in an empty classroom. The two continued to have sex while she was a student at the school at her step mother's house, school and even his house! Corey French had told her that he was married but separated from his wife.
Their relationship continued even after she graduated High School until she met a boy her own age that she fell in love with.
The second girl began her relationship with Mr. French in 2014.
"She had just turned 16 and was in a club French sponsored called Healthy Senators, which met after school.
At the time, French used KIK, a mobile instant messaging app, to communicate with students, even putting work assignments on it, the report said. When the girl messaged French about making up a missed test, French told her to come to his class after school.
She said she was having trouble with some test questions. French gave her the answers and flirted with her.
Late one night he messaged her, telling her he loved her. They later met in his classroom during a planning period or after school and he again told her about his feelings and that he had a wife.
He put her hand on his crotch, the report said. They talked a few more minutes and when she got up to leave, he stopped her at the door, told her he loved her and kissed on the lips.
From then on, she said, he would kiss her or touch her sexually in his classroom.
During orientation before her junior year, he took her to his home, showed her his dogs, and, after small talk, took her hand and asked if she was ready. He led her to a spare bedroom where they had sex.
They stopped communicating in October 2016. Both girls said their relationships with French ended by the time they turned 18 years old."
"At different times both girls confided in a third former Fletcher student who had moved out of state. That student told investigators both her friends fell in love with French; one even put off college hoping he would leave his wife.
The two girls decided to tell French’s wife, they said, because they feared he would victimize another student. They also said they were upset that he wasn’t leaving his wife.
Alexandra French, who teaches at Venetia Elementary, told district investigators Corey French warned her last summer about false rumors around school that he was in a relationship with a student. She even messaged one of the two girls, who avoided answering her questions.
The two girls met Alexandra French at a Dunkin’ Donuts last March and showed her pictures of Corey French in boxer shorts in his bedroom and on a blanket at the beach and the photo of one girl in a negligee in French’s bathroom. They also showed her screen shots of messages with Corey French.
Alexandra French went home and asked her husband to leave and she called Fletcher High’s principal.
District officials said Corey French was immediately removed from classroom duties. When it looked like he was about to be fired, French resigned in May, they said. The district notified the state for possible action against French’s teaching certificate."
Our question is, how many other girls did Mr. French French kiss while he was teaching at this school? No one ever gets caught the FIRST time they commit a crime. What do y'all wanna bet there's at LEAST two more girls out there who can testify to this same story?
