In case you needed another reason not to look for tutors on craigslist. Not only would you might get scammed but your kid’s tutor may be child toucher.
A woman in Portage, Indiana hired a tutor for her 5-year-old son off of craigslist by the name of BJ Wilhelm. The woman checked in on them regularly and saw no inappropriate behavior. However the 5-year-old told his mother that Wilhelm put his hand under the boy’s shirt and rubbed his back and put his fingers in the rear waistband of the boy’s pants and rubbed up and down. Ick.
It turns out that Wilhelm is actually 27-year-old Brett J. Zagorac. Zagorac is a former teacher that has gotten into some trouble in the past for inappropriately touching other kids that he taught. Zagorac allegedly used the fake name of Wilhelm because he was having trouble finding work because of his past.
So where does an accused child molester go to find work? Why craigslist of course.
You want to be a teacher and be able to find work? Then don’t be a child toucher. It really is that simple.
