Who is Marc Allison? 'Vampire' teacher who sent X-rated emails to 8th grader gets 10 years
Allison used to send X-rated emails to a female student and sought to 'drink her blood' via syringe
ROCKWALL, TEXAS: A former Rockwall Independent School District's orchestra teacher has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for e-mailing “sexually explicit” emails to an eighth-grade student, the district attorney’s office said on Tuesday, July 13.
Cain Middle School's orchestra coach, Marc Sherman Allison, 50, was arrested in October 2019 on charges of online solicitation of a minor, indecency with a child sexual contact and improper relation between educator and student. The department said the student involved stated that Allison used to e-mail her X-rated graphics, touched her breast while hugging her in class, purchased her a sex toy and brought syringes to school to draw and drink her blood. He pleaded guilty and later an arrangement was set between him and the student’s family that would give him the maximum sentence of 10 years for online solicitation of a minor. He also received 10 years of probation for the other two charges.
We have reported some similar cases of teachers being arrested for sex crimes in the past. Christina Sosbe, Kimberly Wellman-Rich, Amelia Ressler, Rick Watkins and Brooke Wright were arrested for allegedly having sexual relationships with their students.
Officials have said that Allison, who is a Dallas native, must also register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. “Marc Allison used his position as an educator to commit the ultimate violation of trust, and this child showed great courage by disclosing the abuse,” said Rockwall County Assistant District Attorney Justin Almand. “Our thanks to law enforcement including Heath Department of Public Safety Detective Scott Trammell (ret.) and Captain Michael Morgan, Texas Ranger Bruce Sherman, and the professionals at the Children’s Advocacy Center for Rockwall County.” District officials have put Allison on administrative leave and barred him from campuses following his arrest. They also notified the parents that school staffers learned in July 2019 about Allison’s “conduct that violated board policy."
“Bad people can hide in plain sight,” said Rockwall County District Attorney Kenda Culpepper. “Please take an opportunity to sit your children down and talk about inappropriate behavior. Make sure they know that they can always talk to a trusted adult if they are made to feel uncomfortable in any situation – even at school.”
