A Texas school teacher who was arrested this week on a charge of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy has told police that he is HIV-positive, according to the Dallas News.

Roger Kessler, 43, a music teacher for 14 years at RISD Academy in Richardson, faces a charge of sexual assault of a child, a second-degree felony.

Kessler was arrested this week when a woman, — suspecting he was a burglar — detained him until the police arrived as he attempted to  flee the home of the victim.

After being taken into custody, Kessler reportedly told police that he was at the home to have sex with “a guy,” later identified as a 15-year-old teen.

According to authorities, Kessler said he met the teen through Grindr, a dating app for gay and bisexual men,  where they exchanged explicit messages. Police say the school teacher showed them incoming messages on his phone from the teen that read, “my dad isn’t home.” An outgoing message from Kessler read, “is your mom home right now.”

Kessler initially claimed that believed the teen was a college student before admitting he knew his real age.

The teacher revealed to police that he is HIV-positive, and had not informed the teen of his condition. He stated that he had multiple sexual encounters with the young man, including anal and oral sex, but had used protection in all instances except one.

In an affidavit to police, the teen denied having sex with Kessler.

The teen is reportedly not a student at the school where Kessler teaches.

Kessler, who has been put on leave by the school district is currently being held in Collin County jail. His bail was set at $250,000.

The coronavirus emergency has given President Donald Trump one of the most daunting tests of his administration, with less than a year to go before he stands for re-election.

And yet in the midst of all the chaos, one thing the president found time to do on Thursday was meet with the cast of a bizarre right-wing play dramatizing the supposed "deep state" plot at the FBI to frame Trump in the Russia investigation.

According to The Daily Beast, Trump spent 45 minutes talking with the people behind "FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers," which focuses on the affair between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The leading roles of Strzok and Page were played by Dean Cain, the former Superman actor, and Kristy Swanson, who played the starring role in the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.

All US Navy ships in the Pacific near countries with coronavirus ordered to self-quarantine for 14 days

CNN National Security reporter Ryan Browne tweeted Thursday that the U.S. Navy has ordered all of its vessels in the Pacific that have been near countries with COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, "to remain at sea for at least 14 days before pulling into another port in order to monitor sailors for any symptoms of the virus."

Health experts have said that the two-week period should give enough time for infected people to become aware that they are sick.

The highly-contagious disease has spread very quickly in South Korea and California after public exposure. The first person verified with "community-spread" transmission was identified just outside of Sacramento, California.

‘Most wicked to ever represent Cleveland’: Jim Jordan ripped by hometown paper for covering up sex scandal

Published

on

President Trump likes to call his enemies 'sleaze bags" and Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan a "warrior," but according to Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Brent Larkin, Trump has it backward.

While Jordan may not seem like the worse politician to ever come out of Ohio, the "crimes" he's committed "don't involve felonies," according to Larkin. "They are crimes against America, crimes involving total disregard for the principles of democracy, trampling the truth on behalf of a corrupt president who revels in his inhumanity."

Watching Jordan question witnesses during the House impeachment inquiry particularly incensed Larkin, who writes that it was like watching a man who "spent his childhood gleefully ripping wings off flies."
