Teacher tells 15-year-old student he will 'raise her grades' if she agrees to perform a sex act on him
A Michigan high school teacher Charles Penn, 41, was charged with accosting a minor for immoral purposes and acts
Michigan high school teacher Charles Penn has been accused of telling a 15-year-old student that she could possibly raise her grades if she agreed to perform sex acts on him, the authorities have revealed.
Penn lives in the Detroit suburb of Southfield and was charged on Thursday for accosting a minor for immoral purposes and acts. It was also reported Penn's bond was set at an estimated $50,000 by Judge Russell Ethridge.
If Penn gets convicted then he is looking at around four years behind bars for his sickening crime. The alleged incident occurred this past June when the 41-year-old was employed as an economics teacher.
Penn taught at the Harper Woods High School which is located in the Detroit metropolitan area, as reported by WWJ News Radio. The incident took place when a 15-year-old student asked Penn if she could do any extra work to raise her grades when he reportedly told the student that he would raise her grades if she agreed to perform a sex act on the disgraced teacher.
It is reported that another female student overheard the alleged conversation between the student and Penn and reported it to the Harper Woods police. A police statement which was obtained by the Detroit News read, "Harper Woods Police took immediate action and completed a thorough investigation." During the time that the investigation took place, Charles left his job with the school.
The 41-year-old Southfield resident Charles Penn was arraigned on Thursday in a 32-A District Court located in Harper Woods.
