St. Charles teacher receives probation for sexual assault

Tuesday, 26 November 2013 13:42 Published in Local News

The former St. Charles County teacher who sexually assaulted a 10-year-old, will serve probation.

KMOV reports the victim's family did not want the case to go to trial and that led to the plea agreement. Joseph Maddock will serve five years of probation after pleading guilty to child molestation charges. The abuse happened in early 2013 after Maddock had convinced the boy's family to allow him to home school the child.

Maddock has previously taught at 10 schools in the St. Louis area. 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Two Missouri Democratic lawmakers are calling for state Education Commissioner Chris Nicastro to step down, saying she has demonstrated a tendency "to abuse power."

 

Sen. Paul LeVota, of Independence, and House member Genise Montecillo, of St. Louis, said in a statement Tuesday the most recent example arose in recently disclosed emails from the education department dealing with a ballot measure to end teacher tenure and require that student performance guide employment decisions.

 

A department staff member originally proposed reporting to the state auditor's office that the initiative had potential for significant unknown costs to local school districts. Nicastro changed that to say the cost was unknown.

 

A Department of Elementary and Secondary Education spokeswoman didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.

 

The State Board of Education appoints the education commissioner.

 

Kansas City Chiefs' mascot injured during practice

Tuesday, 26 November 2013 13:39 Published in Local News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A man who has performed as the Kansas City Chiefs' mascot for more than two decades is in stable condition after a weekend accident at Arrowhead Stadium. His attorney said Tuesday the injuries appear to have been caused by human error.

Dan Meers has played KC Wolf since the mascot's inception in 1989. He was seriously injured Saturday while rehearsing a zip line routine ahead of Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. No details about the injury have been released.

Attorney Tim Dollar says Meers' injuries appear to have been caused from how an outside company secured the riggings. He says an investigation is pending.

According to the website mascothalloffame.com, Meers previously performed as Fredbird, the St. Louis Cardinals' mascot, and the University of Missouri's mascot Truman the Tiger.
