  10. […] Meredith Powell, a 24-year-old math teacher at Lincoln High School in Tacoma, Wash., stands accused of engaging in oral sex and other sexual acts behind the locked door of her classroom with a few different male high school students.

For example, according to court documents, an unidentified male student told Powell he would do anything to increase his math grade. “You’ll do anything?” Powell allegedly asked. “Anything,” the teenager repeated. With that, the high schooler said, she reached over to unzip his pants and grabbed his penis. (RELATED: Behind The Math Class Door: High School Teacher Admits To Classroom Sex With Two Students) and  [WARNING: GRAPHIC] Meredith Powell’s Misdeeds: Amended Probable Cause Documents in Teacher Sex Case] [Meredith Powell in Custody of Her Mother: Boy-Crazy High School Teacher Accused of Rape Resigns, Sur…] […]
