Megan Garland, 28-year-old “white” teacher at Messmer High School, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is charged with second-degree sexual assault of a child under 16 years of age.
According to the criminal complaint, a passerby saw a parked car in the Destiny High School parking lot with the windows “steamed up” on the evening of Thursday, May 23rd. When the passerby opened the car door found Garland performing a blow job on the 14-year-old boy. The witness detained Garland and the victim and then called law enforcers. The boy confirmed to cops the witness’ statement.
Megan Garland is a science teacher at Messmer. A statement released by the school last week says she was suspended. The boy is student at the same school. Neither the defendant or victim are associated with Destiny High School.
On the Messmer High School blog Megan Garland was described as an an easygoing teacher who enjoys laughter and comedy. She also told that she ” loves sharing her love of Science with her students to get them excited about the subject just as she was in high school.” And that she ” loves working with Messmer students and seeing the looks on their faces when they grasp a concept. She also likes sharing her knowledge with young people in hopes of some of them becoming the scientists of tomorrow.” All references to Megan Garland were removed after her arrest.
