Former Physical Education Teacher Sentenced for Sexual Misconduct


It’s a sad world we live in now days. You can’t even trust your kids to be safe when you send them to school, that should be the safest place for them other than your home. Between the shootings and the sexual predators, it’s a little terrifying to send your child to school. It doesn’t stop when they reach high school either.


A former physical education teacher in Phoenix had been accused of some sexual misconduct with a female student. Apparently, she took the physical in physical education a little too seriously. Anyways, the former teacher has now been sentenced up to twenty years in prison as well as a lifetime of supervised probation.


Physical Education Teacher Sentenced


According to a Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman, stated that Nicole Wooten who is thirty-eight years old has been sentenced on Tuesday by Judge Sherry Stephens.


On December 1st of 2014, Nicole Wooten pleaded guilty to the charges of attempted child molestation, sexual conduct with a minor, and attempted sexual conduct with a minor.


The sexual misconduct happened when the victim was just an eighth grader. How sad and sick is that? That poor girl. She was a student at the Herrera School of Fine Arts & Dual Language which is in Phoenix. The sexual misconduct happened in 2005. The police say that the charges however, stemmed from incident that occurred at Wooten’s home in Mesa.


Which I’m not sure why the child was at the teacher’s home by herself with the teacher. Most teachers don’t have things going on at their home, so stuff like this doesn’t happen or can’t be accused of things happening. Let’s just hope if it did happen, that the little girl found some peace knowing that this woman will be in jail for some time and then supervised when she’s out.
