AR - Predator teacher sentenced for breaking parole, SNAP responds
For immediate release: Monday October 28, 2013
We are grateful that this dangerous predator was given a long sentence. Children are safe when predators are behind bars.
This woman chose to use her position of trust and respect as a teacher to harm a child entrusted to her care. This behavior cannot be tolerated. We applaud the judge for sending a strong statement to anyone who has the privilege of working with children; if you exploit your position for criminal behavior you will be held accountable.
Kelly O'Rourke was serving time when she broke the terms of her sentencing. Her blatant disregard for the judicial system makes us even more concerned that she cannot be trusted.
We beg anyone who has been harmed by her to come forward and begin healing. We encourage anyone with knowledge of these crimes to work with law enforcement so that she will continue to have no access to children.
