Treme school officials arrested for child porn
quote:

Two members of the leadership team at a K-8 charter school in Treme were arrested Tuesday on allegations that they failed to alert authorities about their discovery of video clips allegedly showing a student being forced to perform oral sex on a group of her peers in a bathroom on campus earlier this year.

Authorities booked Nicole Kusmirek, the second-in-command at Success Preparatory Academy, and Shayla Shane — listed as the school's director of culture — on counts of possessing child pornography as well as failing to report child abuse despite being required to do so as educators.

An attorney for both women, Nandi Campbell, said she believes her clients' actions during the case actually prevented children from being able to go on social media and widely share a video of teens acting inappropriately. She said there was no indication Kusmirek and Shane were under criminal investigation, and they were blindsided by the decision to arrest them. "For NOPD to charge these teachers with possession of pornography is the most obscene thing I've seen since I've been doing this work," said Campbell, adding that both women arrived in New Orleans years ago as part of the Teach for America program. "It's a declaration of war on teachers who are on the front lines of the school-to-prison pipeline we see in this city." Success' principal, Niloy Gangopadhyay, said in a statement that his school stood behind both Kusmirek and Shane and doesn't believe there was any "criminal intent or action on their part." "In our opinion, they took appropriate action and protected the interests of our school and the safety of those students," said the principal, adding that an internal investigation found no violations of procedure on behalf of the staffers.

What a weird story. Shane shouldn't have sent it to her buddy though. Dumb move on her part.

A very odd story indeed.

Apparently the boys who potentially raped the girl in the bathroom are free and clear as well (unless I missed something).

It's entirely possible that I'm just an idiot, but that article was confusing as shit

ETA: Thread title slightly misleading. Were they arrested for possessing child pornography or for failing to report the assault?

100%

this appears to be a situation of good intentions but stupid actions

possession of child porn is WAY over-charging them, though. they should be charged with violation of their mandatory reporter obligations, though

Unless the story was updated, I hadn't seen any mention of the boys other than only one was identified.

IMO, this is something that did not warrant criminal intervention. Yeah, possession of child porn is illegal, but there's no intent to do anything wrong.

Looks like they told the principal (and I assume showed him the footage) and the principal didn't report it to the cops.

I think it said they were sent home that day with their parents and also informed the parents of what their kids did.


I'm just curious as to why this is coming up 6 months after it happened.

i'm guessing the child is in counseling and THAT mandatory reporter notified LEO, creating the investigation
