Teacher Sentenced For Sex With 14-Year-Old Avoids Jail, Keeps Teaching License

Dori Myers admitted she gave a 14-year-old boy oral sex numerous times but still avoided prison and kept her license

New York, NY - A Bronx public school teacher admitted she performed oral sex multiple times on a 14-year-old boy, but she will not have to go to prison or surrender her teaching license.

Dori Myers, 29, was a social studies teacher at The New School for Leadership and the Arts in the Bronx.

She pleaded guilty to a criminal sex act, a felony that requires her to register as a sex offender, according to the New York Post.

Myers, who is the wife of a Rockland County sheriff’s office, entered her plea Wednesday.

Prosecutors had asked that Justice Michael Orbus give Myers two years in prison and order her to surrender her New York state teaching certificate, the New York Post reported.

Defense lawyer Andrew Stoll said that Myers will by fired by the city but asked the judge to allow Myers to keep her teaching license, the New York Post reported.

Judge Orbus gave her 10 years of probation and allowed her to keep her teaching license.

“I just want to make the record clear that Ms. Myers is aware that she must register as a sex offender,” Orbus said, according to the New York Post.

“There is a possibility that she could teach adults now or in the future and we want to preserve that possibility,” Stoll said, according to a court transcript obtained by the New York Post. “She still is a talented teacher and has those skills, and I don’t see any reason to destroy her ability to make a living and to contribute to society in a positive way.”

The New York Post reported that the state Education Department usually reviews these types of cases to determine whether to revoke a license, and they could potentially revoke it.

Police learned about Myers’ crime after the 14-year-old boy told a friend of his who then went and told a school administrator.

Myers was arrested Jan. 19 and initially pleaded not guilty.

It would appear, according to the ineptly proofread article, that this teach is married to the entire sheriff's dept. :)

She certainly could have offered her services to me, and not have gotten a criminal conviction for her troubles.

WTF! What kind of message is this judge sending - that it's okay to abuse a child and you just get your hand slapped?!!

I'm a woman and I know if this was a man guilty of the same thing, he would be in jail and his license yanked so fast he wouldn't know what hit him.

The ONLY way that I'd be OK with this is if ALL PARENTS WERE GRANTED IMMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION so that when one of my fellow MAMA BEARS "Fixed Her Ass" they'd be Free and Clear of Any and All Repercussions!

she's keeping her license to be able to teach adults. I'm SURE there are adult students somewhere who would be happy to have her as their teacher. As the judge said "She still is a talented teacher and has those skills"

So a judge allowed her to keep her teaching license and did not send her to prison? What is our country going to? This Judge sent a message to every teacher across this country that it’s okay to violate kids regardless! This is unbelievable!!

Her libidinous and lewd behaviour is a result of J. cultural marxism and infected liberals destroying America and any other country. Time for a radical change!

So New Jerk has no laws about keeping pedophiles away from the schools?

So I believe Jail time would be warranted in this case but you all need to relax about the teaching license. Having to register as a sex offender and her criminal record is all that's needed to prevent her from teaching minors.

She will never be allowed to teach children once shes registered as a sex offender and has the record.

Keeping her license allows her to teach adults and contribute to society as a working taxpayer. Our Justice system adds to the issues we presently have. We need to make sure people not only pay for the crimes they commit but also make sure that once they've paid for their crimes they will be able to contribute to society.

If not we create another breathing debt to society who lives off of taxpayer $$$

STOP CRYING and use your brains.

I wonder if stricter gun control would have made a difference in this situation?
