Keeping Your Kids Safe: Ex-Substitute Teacher To Be Sentenced for Enticement

MOOREVILLE, Miss.–Maybe the best policy for a teacher is not to have much contact with a student beyond the classroom. Matthew Whitt’s situation could probably make a good case for that. He’s now set to be sentenced Jan. 23 for enticing a minor for sex.

Whitt, 24, pleaded guilty in September and found out about the sentencing this week.

He was a substitute teacher in the Lee County School District when he used electronic devices (the statement from the court didn’t say whether or not it was a cell phone) to contact a minor for sex. Since he used interstate commerce, it was the feds who brought the charges.

Whitt could get life on the federal charges, but the minimum is 10 years.
