    Huffington Post: Cara Dickey, Teacher Convicted Of Raping Student, Allegedly Violates New York Parole (Jan 14 2013)

    A teacher on parole for raping a student cut off her electronic monitoring bracelet and disappeared in upstate New York, state officials said. Cara Dickey, an ex-Buffalo social studies teacher, served two years after pleading guilty in 2010 to having sex with a 14-year-old boy, WKBW reported.


    Dickey removed the monitoring device from her ankle on January 9, the day after a parole officer questioned her about having inappropriate contact with a minor, according to police. Though the New York State Department of Corrections still hadn't found the 32-year-old mother of three on Sunday, a caller claiming to be Dickey contacted Buffalo television stations. The caller admitted to WIVB that she'd recently been in the presence of an underage boy -- a parole violation -- but denied she'd begun a relationship with him. She says she's now a lesbian who was with her girlfriend's younger brother over the holidays.
