PLAINFIELD, Ind. (May 3, 2013)– A teacher has been charged with attempted child molestation.
Joseph Singleton resigned from Plainfield Community Middle School where he taught Math.
Officials said the teacher, whose wife is seven months pregnant, admitted texting with a 13-year-old girl.
According to the probable cause affidavit, he also admitted to kissing the girl three or four times while in school.
Singleton told investigators he “knows it looks bad but he’s very close with the student.” He also said “he loves the student but doesn’t love her like he loves his wife.”
The girl’s mother actually called police after finding several texts talking about love on her daughter’s phone.
