Karen Anne Christiansen Gets 4+ Years for Corruption Tied to Newport-Mesa Schools Chief

karen-ann-christiansen_150.jpg
Karen Anne Christiansen, the former Beverly Hills School District official who received racy emails and secret financial bonuses from future Newport-Mesa Unified School District Superintendent Jeffrey Hubbard, was sentenced today to fours years and four months in state prison for felony conflict of interest. Last month, the Los Angeles County school system's former facilities director was convicted of steering a building contract exceeding $1.3 million her own way.

Up next in Los Angeles County Superior Court is Hubbard, who remains on the job in Costa Mesa leading Newport-Mesa schools. His trial is scheduled to begin Tuesday on three felony charges accusing him of misappropriating thousands of dollars in public funds.

Hubbard is accused of secretly giving Christiansen about $20,000 and a $350 monthly car allowance without the Beverly Hills school board's approval. The third count against him surrounds a secret raise supposedly lavished on Nora Roque when she worked with Hubbard in Beverly Hills. She later followed him to Newport-Mesa.

To build their case, prosecutors have released evidence of love pledges and oral-sex references Hubbard and Christensen exchanged, as well as photos like this she sent to another district employee:

Hubbard has pleaded not guilty, and his attorney has indicated he will file a motion arguing that the statute of limitations on some or all of the charges has passed and that they should be dismissed.

The majority of Newport-Mesa trustees are standing by their embattled superintendent.

It is not the job of any School Official to stop bullying of any kind to their student?

It sounds like NMUSD is not protecting the victim from bullying that appears to have happened to David for quite awhile from Newport Harbor High School.

Why is it that this young man and his Supportive Mom are not being protected from false blame.

What investigation has been brought out with the person that "set David up"according to the newspaper, District and confirmed dr the Police Dept. on his Facebook.

I would hope the person or persons involves get expelled and if laws are broken, prosecution and ACCOUNTABILITY takes place!

David needs to be protected and the people and students verbally teasing him need consequences.

ANY PERSON BULLYING, including not only students, but staff employees should have serious consequences an be an example that the District won't tolerate bullying of any kind. It is a positive step that is written recently in NMUSD district website and "some" of their schools in the district are enforcing on home pages on their school sites.

(It should be written in all the websites and included in the contracts when students and Teachers sign it at the beginning of the school year).

The victims should not feel like they are not protected and safe going to school, in classroom or working on a school campus.

Additionally, the bullying meetings the Police department are doing are informative and good for the schools.

However, they should not only include students who bully, but Teachers or Principals that bully not just students, but other Devoted Teachers or staff. Everyone needs to have authorities HELP THEM not be intimidated, fearful of retaliation or afraid that nobody will come to their aid and investigate a complaints or take a police report without bias, affiliated relationships within the District or NMUSD Communities!

Everyone should respect each other encourage their Police Departments and other authorities to help make our Schools and Communities safer and more secure.

People should work together as a team to have the dignity, respect for each other and TAKE A STAND FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE AFRAID TO HAVE A VOICE WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN BULLIED.

Bullying TeachersandPrincipals "We The People", need to stand up to any authoritative positions that are not protecting our Children, Families, Good Teachers and Others beginning in the Newport Mesa Unified School District. Please follow up Mr. Rackauckas on the complaints and claims that were turned in SEVERAL weeks ago back in July 2012, to help our NMUSD Community and the Parent, Kimberly Mimms and child fighting for Justice to help so many others, besides her own family. This Disteict CONTINUES to devastate compromising safety of kids and other Community Members and Good Teachers not providing equal education.

 

The NMUSD Board Members, past and current Superintendents and others that not only do not protect nor respect anyone coming forward in reporting unlawful and School Policies broken, but protect each other from these unlawful actions and then make the Papterwork, Complaints and Claims disappear like they never existed in the first place.

 

How can this PATTERN OF BEHAVIOR continue, especially what happened with Hallie Ketchum just over 2 years ago. Just goggle NMUSD Lawsuits and how can these so called School Leaders continue to break the law, create new School Policies to cover up School Policies broken.

 

Watch the site under Youtube: Bullyingwarrior and follow Twitter: Bullyingwarrior and watch in date order the deception and corruption in this School District.

 

Kimberly has now been speaking out for the past 3 weeks at Newport Beach and Costa Mesa Council Meetings in Public Input area's for support from Community Members to help create bill into LAW and look further into this serious and unlawful conduct from these Government Workers failing the Community and especially OUR CHILDREN with NO ACCOUNTABILITY.

 

Why stay silent, or make all the paperwork disappear. Do the voices of "We THE PEOPLE", not matter, what about People still trying to show and prove to their kids that all LAWS protect them and others, when in this District, these people think they are ABOVE THE LAW AND UNTOUCHABLE, UNSTOPABLE from the immediate retaliation of the measures they take and deceive the general public.

 

Bullying From Top School Officials and Anyone protecting them in the opinion of many NMUSD Community Members is unlawful and Criminal. When you go to Newport Beach and Costa Mesa Police Department and they say a Teacher retaliating with humiliation, degrading name calling in front of class and others, holding your child and Neighbor against their will with this same Teacher, leaving children unattended at field trips then having false blame forcing kids to sign a paper that they did something wrong when they did nothing wrong is beyond wrong, it is a abusive and provides a unsafe school learning and work environment . Any Teacher Retaliating to a student because "she can no longer bring her own Toddler in her 5th grade class anymore" while working compromising her class of students education, or with hold grades, progress reports deliberately, not give school tools and papers to a student when attending 2 other classes. This Teacher would cancel numerous tests on this child only, at times not being allowed to have lunch to take tests rescheduled numerous times is beyond comprehension.

 

The Community including Good Teachers, 1 who lost her job at Newport Heights Elementary in Newport Beach, CA., because she too did not agree with this conduct and had retaliation from school officials including past Principal. Why would a Principal simply not just do his job and not allow this conduct to a child and Good Teacher stop immediately.

 

Why cover up and protect this treatment all the way up the chain of Command to Board Members and Suoerintendents level. Why would Susan Astarita, Assistant create new school policy allowing a Teacher to bring Toddler on campus which was against School Policies told by Dept. Of Education and numerous other School Officials?

 

Please step in to stop this abuse, investigate and help our Community not have any more victims! Remember someone you know could be their next target.

 

No Parent should ever take their child to school and wonder what next are these School Officials going to do to their child as they drive away from the school.

 

We do not want to lose anymore Good Teachers because they felt they did not have a choice to be protected from Bullying and Political Corruption. Some staff are afraid and other Families see the retaliation and don't have a voice for fear of repercussions.

 

If we do not step up to change, what kind of example are we showing our kids, neighbors, Good Teachers and Friends! Please step in and HELP OUR NMUSD School Community.

Bravo Matt, Concerned Parent and others that want to take a stand for Justice.

Support the NMUSD Parent who is EXPOSING ALL the INJUSTICE Jeffrey Hubbard, Some Board Members and Distict Employees have done to HARM children and Families NOT protecting them in the Complaint Process!

In fact they JOINED IN on RETALIATION and have tried to SILENCE the Parent.

How can they deny COMPLAINTS/CLAIM PROCESS WITH EVIDENCE SUBMITTED??

This is fraud and destruction to anyone going thru system at a School District and should be fired immediately and authorities should step in and put them in JAIL, like any criminal and the people covering for them too.

Go to the NMUSD website and watch the Parent asking for Accountability and help speaking for the People in Community SCARED to come forward and have NO VOICE. Kimberly speaks for all of them, especially her child and is SHOWING BY EXAMPLE THAT LAWS PROTECT EVERYONE.

Christopher, Bravo with your concerns with Newport Mesa Unified School District under the NOW PAST SUPERINTENDENT Jeffrey Hubbard.

Go to Youtube: "Bullyingwarrior", and see how it all is pulled together with kids and People not safe and not Protected in this school district when a person is brave enough to come forward in Complaint Process with the Board Members covering up and Current Superintendent staying SILENT.

Why? They are counting the days for the 6 month denial of yet again another claim yo pass 6 months and then you cannot do anything................or can you?
