SC teacher who gave 'sensual massages' to student, 12, and told her ‘I want to be your wife’ dodges jail
Allison Chilton pled guilty to the charges of criminal solicitation of a minor and third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor
SUMMERVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA: A 27-year-old woman has managed to avoid jail even after sexually abusing a minor girl, whom she told, “I want to be your wife”. Allison Chilton received five years probation after she manipulated and groomed the 12-year-old girl. The former middle school teacher pled guilty to charges of criminal solicitation of a minor and third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor. As per The Sun, a judge accepted her guilty plea and awarded her ten years suspended to five years of probation. Charges against Chilton were brought after the student’s father informed authorities about his suspicion that there was something brewing between them. The victim’s father reportedly told Dorchester County deputies that the illegitimate relationship between his daughter and the teacher started when she was in seventh grade and Chilton used to teach her. He added that his suspicion grew when he found the minor was meeting the woman alone in an empty classroom while other pupils were enjoying recess outside.
The incident document stated that the father of the child requested authorities to do a report after he discovered proof of their alleged relationship. Text messages exchanged between the victim and Chilton shown to the investigators read, “I want to be your wife” and “I want to hold you.” The report mentioned that the pupil suffered sexual abuse at the hands of the woman, who also kissed her and provided her "sensual massages" multiple times. WCSC reported that court documents showed that three years ago, the language arts and math teacher planned to convince the girl to have a sexual relationship with her.
An affidavit also mentioned the victim’s account that stated she had shared text messages with Chilton with regard to having a sexual relationship. The woman was initially charged in January 2018 after which she quit her work position from Oakbrook Middle School. When she was employed at the school, her school profile said, “This is my 5th year at Oakbrook Middle School as a Special Education Teacher. My job is to provide supplemental specialized instruction to students to help reinforce what they are learning in their general education classes. I also teach primary writing. I have a B.S. in Special Education from College of Charleston."
In addition to the five years of probation sentencing, Chilton has been put on the sex offender registry with active GPS monitoring. She has also been ordered to never contact the victim.
In another incident, a teacher from Idaho, who was caught having sex with a teenage boy by her former husband, has reportedly dodged the sex offender register. Amanda Steele received 90 days in jail for two felony counts of injury to a child in the summer. However, she won’t have to give her name in the sex offender register after a plea deal meant she was not charged with a sex crime. Steele was arrested after her ex-husband found her with the 16-year-old boy in the family hot tub and informed police about it. District Judge Darren Simpson suspended a three to a 10-year prison sentence for the 35-year-old, but if probation was violated, she would have to serve all or some of the sentence. The teacher will also have to complete 300 hours of community service and pay $4,671 in fees and fines.
