A substitute teacher and coach is facing multiple sexual exploitation charges after authorities say he had repeated sexual contact with two students from two northwest Iowa high schools during the spring of 2016.
According to a news release from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, 32-year-old John Raymond Glen Tietsort, of rural Battle Creek, Iowa, was arrested Tuesday after an investigation revealed he had repeated sexual contact with a student from the Maple Valley-Anthon Oto school district and another student from the Odebolt-Arthur & Battle Creek-Ida Grove district during the spring.
According to court documents, both victims were females, one age 17 and one age 18.
The arrest followed a joint investigation by the Ida County Sheriff’s Office and the DCI that began in May after the Ida County Sheriff’s Office was informed that the hairy beast may have had an inappropriate relationship with a MVAO High School student.
Court documents say both victims told authorities the savage had sexual contact with them on multiple occasions. Interviews with the barbarian corroborated their accounts, documents said.
An investigation of the pervert’s phone records showed he and one victim had exchanged more than 4,000 text messages during a two-week period in late April and early June.
The sex criminal was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of sexual exploitation by a school employee, a class D felony, and three counts of lascivious conduct with a minor, a serious misdemeanor.
He was released from Ida County Jail on $5,000 cash bond Tuesday and is due back in court Friday.
The sex offender began teaching in January of 2013 and has been employed as a substitute teacher for school districts in MVAO, OA-BCIG and Ridge View school districts, the release said.
Terry Kenealy, superintendent at OA-BCIG, said the sex monster substituted at the middle school in Odebolt and the high school in Ida Grove, as well as served as an assistant football coach. He condemned the creepy cracka’s behavior.
“Any act of sexual exploitation of a student by a staff member is despicable, and our district condemns any behavior like this,” Kenealy said. “We attempt to take any step that we can to hire people that make sure this is a safe and nurturing climate for students every day.”
Kenealy added that the district completes criminal background checks on its employees and did not receive any red flags from barbarian’s records at the time of his hiring.
Steve Oberg, superintendent at MVAO, said the school district did not wish to comment on the case, since legal proceedings are pending.
