Police Think Teacher Arrested For Sexual Abuse Of Teen May Have More Victims

Police released a mugshot of 29-year-old Lindsey Halstead because they are hoping to locate additional victims.

Seneca Falls, NY – State police released the mugshot of a 29-year-old school teacher arrested for sexual contact with a 16-year-old boy in the hopes that it helps them to locate other victims.

Lindsey Halstead was a physical education teacher who taught for about four years in the Waterloo Central School District, according to The Post-Standard.

Halstead resigned her teaching position on Feb. 2, 2018.

However, the New York State Police said that she worked as a long-term substitute teacher for the Midlakes Schools in the Phelps-Clifton Springs Central School District after that until she was fired, The Post-Standard reported.

Halstead worked as a substitute teacher from Feb. 5 until April 26, 2018

Police did not release information about where the incident occurred or whether the alleged victim was one of Halstead’s students, The Post-Standard reported.

Halstead was arrested on Tuesday and charged with two counts of sexual misconduct and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.

She is being held at the county jail until her arraignment, according to The Post-Standard.

Waterloo Central School District Superintendent Terri Bavis released a statement on the district’s website.

“The safety and security of our students is of utmost importance and all reports of any kind are treated seriously,” Bavis said, according to The Post-Standard.

Phelps-Clifton Springs Central School District Superintendent Matthew Sickles also shared a statement on his district’s website.

“The school district is fully cooperating with the New York State Police and is unaware of any alleged misconduct involving Midlakes students or any alleged misconduct occurring on our campus," Sickles said, according to The Post-Standard.

Police released a mug shot of Halstead despite a law banning police from releasing the photos unless it has a “law enforcement purpose.”

Detectives think in Halstead’s case, releasing her photo might draw out more victims, The Post-Standard reported.

The state police said the investigation is ongoing and additional charges were pending.

How many does this make? Number 16 my number 17? At least this female sexual abuser is still in jail. Now let's see what's going to happen to her. From all of the other stories we read on this site probably not much which is downright disgraceful! The double standard for male and female sexual child abusers has got to stop. I am a woman and I think this bitch are to be taken out behind the woodshed and shot. I cannot honestly see the sexual attraction for a 16 year old child and there is definitely something wrong with these women who I having sex with children. If that was my child there is not enough punishment on this Earth for this teacher my family would have to be posting my bail because she would definitely not be walking around

I see a pattern. Liberals are determined to teach our kids about pedophilia, the gay lifestyle, gender fluidity and how to screw like an adult. School district's HR departments need to look closely at a teacher's political affiliations, social media posts and have them undergo psych exams before hiring just like police candidates do.

Have You Ever noticed that if the Sexual Predators are Young Attractive "Females" that the System lean the other way and that the Male Psychological Tendencies are to Encourage their "Sons" or Other Male #Victims to Embrace their Experiences as a Passage of Manhood Vs What Horrors they might have experienced the first time with a Man ?? Psychological Manipulations with Either Adult Predators should result in Prison Time for the Bloody Bitches and Extensive Support for Our Kids.. Pregnancy , Venereal diseases, Physical Harm and loss of Life through Suicides or Murders have resulted because of these Situations 🤬

If I had a teacher that attractive, when I was in high school, and she 'molested' me or gave me sex, I would not say a thing (except, being in high school to my buddies, probably). But, it seemed most of my teachers were men or older women, not my style.
