FRANKFORT – A high school teacher has been charged with six counts of child seduction.
Thomas Weeks, 46, appeared in court with his attorney on Wednesday. His attorney entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. Weeks has been accused of having oral sex and sexual intercourse with a 16-year-old student inside the garage at his home.
Weeks is a history teacher at Frankfort High School. He is also the boys basketball coach. According to court documents, the encounter between Weeks and the student happened twice between June 2013 and August 2013.
About a year later, during late May 2014, Weeks’ wife noticed her husband did not go to bed and had fallen asleep on the couch. She grabbed his phone and saw messages between her husband and a student, the court documents read. His wife claimed Weeks denied he sent those messages.
According to the affidavit, the messages were from his Twitter account. Some of those messages read: “just please think of me holding and touching,” “tasting as well,” and “I’m so tired (of) you not being with me nightly.”
Weeks’ wife left the house with her children and took the phone to the Frankfort Police Department.
“As a normal rule, we don’t want to say anything. Certainly at this point and time we have no comment,” Weeks Attorney Kent Moore said.
Clinton County Prosecutor Anthony Sommer said he was not aware of any other possible victims. A judge ordered Weeks not to have any contact with the victim in this case.
“It’s always important to remember someone accused of a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law,” Sommer said.
