Bosiljevac

A former Emporia High School social studies teacher charged with inappropriate sexual relations and sexual battery against six former students made his first appearance in Lyon County District Court Tuesday afternoon.

Tyler J. Bosiljevac, 39, of Emporia was arrested and booked into the Lyon County Detention Center on eight charges in late May. According to the official case report, the charges include two counts of Attempted Unlawful Voluntary Sexual Relations with a child under the age of 16, Attempted Sexual Exploitation of a Child between the ages of 14-16, Sexual Battery on a child over the age of 16 with the intent to arouse or satisfy sexual desires and three counts of Indecent Liberties with a Child between the ages of 14-16 in which Bosiljevac was said to have engaged in lewd fondling or touching.

As his original first appearance date was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tuesday’s action was mainly procedural in nature. After waiving a reading of his charges, Bosiljevac was immediately assigned a preliminary hearing date of Aug. 6. The appearance — set to begin at 1:30 p.m. before Judge W. Lee Fowler — is scheduled to last the balance of the day.

Initial investigations began in February after a student made complaints to an EHS staff member who then reported them to the Emporia Police Department. Bosiljevac’s contract with the school district was terminated by the USD 253 Board of Education later the same month during a closed executive session. Stated reasons for termination included “failure to demonstrate sound professional judgment” as well as several violations of board policy relating to sexual harassment and a failure to maintain “a positive and safe learning environment.”

At the time of his dismissal, Bosiljevac had been employed with the district for 14 years.

Not much use in having this guy in society. Lock him up and keep him locked up. No sentence is too long. If he gets out, he will continue this same behavior, guaranteed. These perverts never, never change their behavior, so prison is the only place for them.

Excellent post. Yes, these perverts never change their behavior; they just go underground for awhile until the coast is clear. In his case, he's been teaching for 14 years! How long had it been going on? It took great courage for the students to report it, and for the teacher to report to the police. I've been in that position where I had to make such a report many years ago. The aftermath takes forever with court cases and hearing by the state board of Ed too. Kudos to those who reported it. For teachers, it's mandated. No parole. He must be put away.

Go ahead. You know where he is. He isn't going anywhere soon. Contact the Court and request it permit your kids allowed to spend a few days with him alone in his cell. Make the request now. Insist they allow it. File an appeal if they deny. Do not take No for an answer.

What about having them around Trump who's had 20+women accuse him of sexual assault?
