Now, even the volunteer teachers and coaches of the female gender are getting into the high school boy meat market, via illicit sexual relations. Ericka Oxford, 41, a volunteer track coaching assistant at Fort Zumwalt East High School in Missouri has been arrested on the felony charge of sex with a student. In particular, a 17-year old male student she was having sex with 1-2 times a week at her home, according to the boy interviewed during the investigation. Presumably, the boy was a member of the high school track team, but no confirmation of that fact yet.
In a weird twist to the story, the relationship between the 41-year old parent volunteer and the teen boy was “outed” in May when the pair opted for a quickie back at the boy’s house and were caught mid-coitus by the boy’s father. It’s not clear precisely what happened after that moment, but the relationship between his son and the older woman appeared to continue. Did he not tell the authorities and only crow to the neighbors about his boy bagging an older woman? So many questions, so few answers.
Whatever the timeline, the long arm of justice caught up to Oxford this past week in her felony arrest and $20,000 bail. The Fort Zumwalt East principal was quick to point out, as they all do, that none of the sex took place on school grounds and that Oxford had passed background check by the state organization that handles parent volunteers in the school. All of which means, she doesn’t have any prior criminal arrests. As seems to be the case in 99.9% of these older woman and student sex instances because obviously a teacher with a rape conviction on her rap sheet would never make it into employ in the first place. So obviously these are all first time sex crime arrests. But, still, the pro forma statement from those who might be fired or sued is always welcome.
Now you may begin to wonder if Oxford took an interest in helping out the track team to get herself near athletic teen boys or if this was a random crime of passion. You can count on her crying and pleading the latter, but, you’ll never know the truth.
