Teacher Sent Behind Bars for 198 Years with Heavy Restitution in Mississippi; Solicited Students to Record Abuse Material for Drugs

Toshemie Wilson, who used to teach at Amory High School in Amory, Mississippi, was found guilty of sexually exploiting children on multiple counts in December.

Wilson got to know his students at the Amory School District by using his roles as a teacher and guide for the Technology Students of America.

He tricked students into making sexy movies and pictures in exchange for money and drugs from 2005 to 2014.

Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court, Debra M. Brown, has given a sentence. Wilson, who used to work for the Amory School District, was given a long prison term of 192 years. Wilson has also been told to pay the victims over $123,000 in compensation and a $5,000 trafficking assessment. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Mississippi put out a news statement with this information.

At least eleven children have told the FBI and the office of the Mississippi Attorney General that they were abused.

Reports from seven people who said Wilson approached them as students and asked them to make explicit films for money. From 2005 to 2014, these things happened in a variety of places, including a school bathroom.

U.S. Attorney Clay Joyner said, “Parents and children should be able to trust teachers. Toshemie Wilson deeply broke that trust and deserves every hour of every day that he spends in prison.” “The victims’ bravery in coming forward is beyond words. Wilson is now exactly where he belongs.”

Multiple students told police about inappropriate behavior by a substitute teacher in Mississippi, who was then charged with sexual assault and molestation.
