Another Female Teacher Accused of Sex with Two Students

Megan Garland, 28-year-old teacher at Messmer High School,  Milwaukee, Wisconsin,  has been accused of having sexual relations with two male students.

According to the criminal complaint, a passerby saw a parked car in the Destiny High School parking lot with the windows “steamed up” on the evening of Thursday, May 23rd. When the passerby opened the car door found Garland performing an oral sex act on the 14-year-old boy. The witness detained Garland and the victim and then called police. The boy confirmed to police the witness’ statement.

Megan Garland is a science teacher at Messmer. A statement released by the school last week says she was suspended. The boy is student at the same school. Neither the defendant or victim are associated with Destiny High School.

The mother of the freshman who prosecutors say was sexually assaulted by a teacher, says her son was manipulated. "Totally tricked. An overgrown person preying on a child." The mother says her son is doing okay, and will seek counseling.

On the Messmer High School blog Megan Garland was described as an an easygoing teacher who enjoys laughter and comedy. She also told that she " loves sharing her love of Science with her students to get them excited about the subject just as she was in high school." And that she " loves working with Messmer students and seeing the looks on their faces when they grasp a concept. She also likes sharing her knowledge with young people in hopes of some of them becoming the scientists of tomorrow." All references to Megan Garland were removed after her arrest.

The feeling of shock is spreading throughout Messmer's community after another male  student claims he was sexually assaulted by the same female teacher. Milwaukee Police say a 15-year-old boy filed a report earlier this week which claims Megan Garland assaulted him. The MPD doesn't know if there are more victims out there, but they encourage anyone who may have been a victim to come forward. On Wednesday police confirmed the first victim told investigators he was not the only one have an inappropraite relationship with his teacher.

Milwaukee police say Garland attempted to commit suicide after being found out, and was treated for her wounds. If convicted, Garland faces up to 40 years in prison.

Messmer High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
