    >>> Dumb As A Rock!!! <<<
    >>> This complete idiot taught your children for thirty years!!! <<<

    I'll be adding more links, articles & info to this thread over the next few days, but this guy is the ultimate clueless loser. This bozo taught in numerous schools in the St. Louis, Missouri, area over a thirty-year period, shagged a number of his females student and never got caught. Upon retirement he moved to Ely, Minnesota. After a couple years, thinking that the statute of limitations had expired (it hadn't :D), he called the authorities in the St. Louis area "to clear his conscience".​

    Ingerson Donald.jpg Ingerson Donald 2.jpg

    Name: Donald Ingerson, Ely, Minnesota (retirement residence)​

    Age: 67​

    Schools (partial list):​
    Position: Science teacher​

    Victims: At least two girls, one in 1974 and one in 1995, one aged 15, one aged 16​

    Best description so far of the crimes & the victims is from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:​



    Donald Ingerson, 67, taught science and coached baseball at St. Louis-area high schools from the 1970s up through last spring, when he retired and moved to Ely, Minnesota.

    During his teaching career, Ingerson apparently sexually assaulted at least two students, one in 1974 and another in 1995. But the assaults, at least one of which included rape, were never reported to school officials or the police and Ingerson was able to wrap up his career without punishment.

    Though the assaults remained between himself and his victims, Ingerson was beating himself up over what he'd done. In June, he placed an unsolicited call to St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch and confessed to the assaults, reportedly because he wanted to clear his conscience. Ingerson did so in the belief that the statute of limitation had expired, thus exempting him from any criminal culpability -- but he was mistaken.

    He drove hundreds of miles to St. Louis to "discuss" the assaults with investigators? If he really didn't suspect he might be arrested, then, assaults aside, we feel sorry for the students who "learned" in Ingerson's classes for the better part of four decades.


    St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch just got a freebie. Retired St. Louis County school teacher Donald Ingerson, 67, allegedly felt the need to clear his conscience, and called McCulloch's office to admit he sexually assaulted two female students during his career. Sure, it sounds like the doings of a man attempting to right some wrongs. But according to McCulloch, the only reason Ingerson 'fessed up is because he believed the statute of limitations on these crimes had expired, and Ingerson could get all the conscience-salving benefits of a confession without having to face any punishment.

    McCulloch believes the statute of limitations have not expired, and that Ingerson can indeed be brought to trial. As a former teacher, you'd think Ingerson would have checked his work before turning it in, so to speak. Ingerson allegedly committed the assaults in 1974 and 1995; the statute of limitations is 30 years. McCulloch's legal opinion is that the 30 years starts ticking from the time the victim becomes an adult, meaning he can prosecute both cases -- a prosecution that begins with an uncoerced confession seemingly already in hand.

    But wait, there's more. Ingerson made his fateful phone call in June. In the intervening months, investigators tracked down the two victims, told them of the new developments and they both confirmed the assaults. At that point the investigators contacted Ingerson at his home in Minnesota and asked him to drive down to St. Louis to discuss the assaults with them. When Ingerson arrived, he was arrested and charged with rape and statutory sodomy. He's being held in county jail on $300,000 cash-only bond.

    What a complete patsy!!! He even saved them the cost and trouble of extraditing him from Minnesota.

    New York Daily News: Former teacher confesses to raping students, unaware there’s no statute of limitations: prosecutors (Aug 1 2012)

    A former teacher is being held in a Missouri jail after confessing to two sexual assaults on his students, prosecutors say. Donald Ingerson, 67, believed the statute of limitations had run out, KDSK-TV reported – but Missouri removed the statute for rape in 2002. He now faces charges of rape and second-degree statutory sodomy. Ingerson’s teaching career spanned several St. Louis County school districts from the 1960s to the 1990s. He admittedly committed one of the assaults in the mid-1970s and the other in 1995 or 1996, according to Hazelwood Patch.

    Fox News: Former St. Louis teacher charged with rape, thought statute of limitations expired (Aug 1 2012)

    [Donald] Ingerson, who has been charged with rape and statutory sodomy, remains jailed on $300,000 cash bond after being arrested and charged Monday. He doesn't have an attorney, and [Prosecuting Attorney Bob] McCulloch said the suspect seemed surprised to learn the statute of limitations had not expired in at least one of the cases. McCulloch also told reporters that he believes there could be other victims. McCulloch said the first charge stems from an assault on a 16-year-old girl from around 1974 to 1976. The second involved a 15-year-old girl in 1995. McCulloch said the statute of limitations is 30 years, adding that that clock begins only after a minor becomes an adult. The statute of limitations for rape and sodomy varies because laws have changed over the years, he said. Both victims have been informed of the arrest and are “quite relieved,” McCulloch said.

    I'm not sure what you hoped to convey in your posts, however I took it that somehow parents were to blame for the fact that this teacher was teaching for so long. In my view, it was the school districts who failed, as any teacher who changes schools that frequently clearly has some issue which the schools were aware of. As a former student of the teacher, I would be very careful about how you present things, unless you want to blames parents and students for a shitty teacher.

    also a former student and player under this guy, would've done anything for him. On the surface, the guy most of us saw and thought we knew, was a phenomenal guy. However, this surely has rocked my confidence and trust in people in general. 1st person should've put him away back in the 70's and none of this would be a topic to discuss....regardless, he f'd up. He's on his own now.
     
  10. I hate to see so many posts, from same source convicting someone with repeated exaggerations, reporting "rumors", etc. Yes, there obviously was a terrible wrong committed; however, I can't see harping on "stupidity" and ridiculing someone who may have had a repentant conscience and was trying to protect his family. Can you even imagine how the family must feel? Why not let the courts decide before you wave that noose around? Are you getting some kind of perverse kick with all your gleeful gouging? This man is going to suffer from the consequences of his actions (as will his family who did no wrong). Even if he has received forgiveness from God, he will still have to be accountable, as did David in the Old Testament (remember the writer of beautiful Psalms, and the giant killer?). Yep, King David, who also committed adultery with Bathsheba, lied about it, and virtually committed murder by sending her husband into battle and certain death. His life was full of consequences, even after forgiveness. But guess what? He was "the apple of God's eye" in his elder years. I imagine the joking post writer is laughing heartily about now. So enjoy your sick humor, pointing at someone else... while several fingers point right back at yourself.

    All of the information in here comes from mainstream media sources that are cited and linked. If you can't deal with that, you should probably find a rock to hide under.

    In Donald Ingerson's case, he's definitely one of the dumbest we've covered certainly and the only one to self-extradite himself to another state, apparently thinking he would just have a nice chat with the cops & drive home.

    Former teacher gets 3 years in prison

    4 June 2014


    A former suburban St. Louis teacher has been sentenced to three years in prison for sexually assaulting two minors in separate incidents two decades apart.

That proved to be correct in one case. But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Ingerson pleaded guilty in February of rape involving a victim under age 16 that occurred from 1974 to 1976; and for sodomy for a victim under age ...
