Joshua Alexander Evans: English Teacher Allegedly Hugged, Kissed 14 y.o. Girl Student

Categories: Crime-iny
Joshua-Alexander-Evans_ocda.jpg
On many Fridays, Navel Gazing presents the ugliest police mugshot of the week. Perhaps on Mondays, we should offer up the Die Hard henchman police mugshot of the week. English teacher Joshua Alexander Evans would take this week's honors.

Law enforcement is reaching out to the public for other possible victims of the Fullerton 32-year-old accused of inappropriately kissing and hugging one of his 14-year-old female students at El Rancho Charter School in Anaheim Hills.

Between this past December and January, Evans allegedly groomed the girl for a relationship beyond class by sending her texts and emails and playing online games via his cell phone. He is accused of meeting the girl at least three times at another student's home, and on two of these occasions they are said to have kissed and embraced one another.

The 14-year-old's mother learned of the relationship and reported the crime to the school, which in turn contacted the Anaheim Police Department. Evans was arrested in Fullerton. But the investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information on this case or possibly others is asked to contact Supervising District Attorney Investigator Lou Gutierrez at 714.347.8794 or Detective Joe Atkinson at 714.765.1487.

In the meantime, Evans is to be arraigned in Santa Ana this morning on two felony counts of lewd and lascivious acts upon a child between the age of 14 or 15. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of three years and eight months in state prison and mandatory lifetime registration as a sex offender, which would bar him from entering city parks or county recreational areas that have banned sex offenders.

I don't agree that he should be put in the same category as other predators who have done far worse.  I don't think a mandatory minimum will address his problem, and could actually make him worse. If the charges are true, mandatory counseling, possibly jail time, and rehabilitation are the hopeful solutions.  He can defend himself in court, but the mandatory minimum in this case might not fit the crime.

In the year 2005 when I got ratted on then expelled in El Rancho for hacking the library computers, the website I had at the time in which I bashed on the teachers I despised the most had a section for Mr. Evans and I specifically mentioned that he liked to hit on female students and was a creep, when the administration found out they thought I was just slandering and I had anger and mental issues. All I got out of it was an expulsion. The last day I ever stepped foot in El Rancho to clear out my locker I went to my English class to say goodbye to all my friends and Mr. Evans kept telling me to leave his class things like “please get out of my class”, “you’re time is up, go out the door”, but he and I knew his deep dark secret, knowing that I couldn’t prove him wrong, he thought he won the war but I got the last laugh because I was right all along…

i was one of his students at El Rancho, and I can honestly say he was a great teacher. He didn't seem that he was, in anyway, sexually attracted to his students. I do know the girl was really dumb and "hot" for Mr.Evans. She was the one who gained access to his # and began the conversations, so this makes her the bad guy. She's known at El Rancho for being a stupid whore so...glad i got to shed some light on the situation

Psychological development of a human does not evolve the frontal lobe fully until age 25.  At age 14 it is extremely undeveloped.  The frontal lobe defines the ability to make decisions based on adult reasoning, insight, impulse control ect. the nerve cells do not send messages via the white matter or myelin the fatty tissue that makes messages that tell adults to take actions (such as develop relationship and evolve it to kissing and hugging with 32 year old adult male). That is why the law protects humans under age 18, when they are most vulnerable to exploitation and manipulation by grown adults.  It is not only legally impossible for a 14 year old to "consent",  they are psychologically incapable of making a reasoned decision as an adult can.  It is also more exploitative for a teacher whom is in the role being a model and guide for young people to use the power they have in that role for their own sexual gratification.  It is very, very reasonable for this man to have his teaching credentials removed and put on a sex offender list.

Rehabilitation??? for a "sex" crime? You know full well there is no such thing, nor the intent thereof. If he is found guilty his life is done for, as the worst punishment is clearly the lifelong registry and all penalties associated with it.

Funny.  I think you know the truth.  When we know someone's dirty little secrets, they often hate us, attack us, or worse, engage in their own slander against us.  Mr. Evans did not treat you with the same friendliness he showed the girl.  I think that has been my point all along.  People need to look closer.  The school is to blame in part.  Absolutely.  They don't know what they are doing.  I hope you are working and finding the good times in life, something that school was not gearing you up for.  Good luck in all you do.

Gender inequality is often at the center of these laws.  Boys are sometimes held to a higher standard.  The laws should serve only to protect children from adults, not necessarily to punish them for their natural inclinations.

 Perhaps you ought to be thinking along the lines of whether it is a crime in YOUR state, or in the state where this idiot was arrested.

Also, you might want to read a little bit on human brain development. The human brain continues to develop until around age 25, and recent studies have shown that adolescents often have difficulty understanding the consequences of their actions because the relevant areas of their brains are not fully mature.

I highly recommend Science News, which is available online as well as off, for information about such studies.

You hear about it more and more.  Perhaps this guy would have made a career of it less than fifty years ago, while other teachers were watching their queer compatriots being fired for no reason other than being identified in a line up at a bar. We must have a revised code of behavior for all teachers.  Its just not enough to be seen by your peers as a good person.  A good person will have standards.  Our schools need to re-examine the standards they expect from teachers....and this points, albeit off topic, to the recent firings of teachers in New York, for not meeting the reading standards, etc., and the ones they kept are judged only on the scores they "produced", not on their real merits as human beings and teachers who should be role models, as teachers, not best-best-friends.  You see it more, because of the internet.  You hear about all the stories, not just the ones in your own own city.

@4ee47483488b80ebd04ced6325a17f38:disqus Lynnie- be sure and bring up those points next time a child (!) under 18 is charged with a crime and prosecuted as an adult and sent to adult prison for life. Happened to a 14 year old in OC recently. All of a sudden he is held accountable for not "making a reasoned decision as an adult can". If only his lawyer had thought of raising the frontal lobe deficiency! Can't have it both ways.

Teaching credentials removed - here I agree. Prison - not so much. Lifetime sex offender status - ridiculous.

 What is wrong with you? Do you know anything about pedophiles? They CANNOT be reformed. This guy might just have been caught early enough. Or he might not. On average, a pedophile has approximately 100 victims over the course of their career. Many of the children sexually abused by pedophiles become pedophiles themselves. This man abused a position of trust to groom an underage child for sexual contact with an adult. This is a crime with very serious consequences. 3 years is nowhere NEAR enough.

Would you feel the same if it was your daughter that he was kissing and hugging?

I think its best she keep her identity confidential.  I'm sure she has shared this info with others, or they may certainly look into it, now.  In response to this dear child, no child is a whore.  These are but words used to harm another person by denigrating their true character.  The teacher may be great, soft, gentle, and about as non-sexual as you choose to imagine, but he is a male, who knows very well about teenage girls, their hopes and dreams, their needs to have secrets, to gossip, to flirt, and seek attention.  When we become what society thinks is an adult, we are held to very high standards.  This means no kisses, no reciprocation, and a professional attitude when doing anything associated with the school, the students, their parents, board meetings, etc.  He failed.  (F grade)  That means less than 60% reliable.  He is unreliable, unless he is being railroaded.  You should learn not to bad mouth other girls.  It leads to jealousy, pettiness, back-biting, and worse, bitterness.  Be sure to alert the authorities handling the case, so they can get your words on a report.  If he is a good man, he needs your help.

We don't have states in Russia.  I agree with everything you said.  Then again if you wait for the brain to completely develop, the subject has died.  I object more to the pious nature of Orange County hypocrites.  In the same week three police shot a marine with three children for the crime of being black in Orange County.  That is a genuine case of child assault.  Keep in mind Orange County is conservative, went bankrupt recently, and is chock full of FOB Asian girls hooking to stay in school.  Also a nearby nuke plant almost blew up last month. Typical repubs.

I do thank you for your enlightened discussion and if the USA were full of such thoughtful people most of the country's problems could be solved overnight.

Pedophilia means "love of children."  If that were wrong every parent would be in prison. Catholics have polluted the meaning of the word as their priests are pederasts.  The Vatican does not punish pederasts.

Ahhh... the obligatory 'what if it was YOUR "fill in the blank"'.... one should not forget that this process is called the "Justice System". It is NOT the Revenge or Nothing better happen to my Precious Angel System.

My opinion (not that is matters) - based on the description and what the charges are - is that the accused has no place being in a classroom, but also does NOT deserve to have his entire life shattered, which will happen with life-time registration.

This from a mother, who also remembers being a 14-year old girl once. So I am indeed in a place to put this in proper context.

Ok, but what if it was your SON and the teacher was FEMALE? I don't condone Mr. Evan's stupidity...but it appears the girl was a willing participant in the relationship. It's not the same situation as a person who trolls for victims with the purpose of forcing them to do things against their will. Mr. Evans made a dumb decision...and clearly needs to work on forming relationships with people closer to his own age...but I can't quite call him a "predator".

 I apologize, tovarisch, if my tone was rude. Thank you very much for the discourse. Orange County is, indeed, a blot on the rest of the nation, in fact, a blot on humanity. You have my deepest sympathy for having to live among those troglodytes. I am surprised to find someone *capable* of logical conversation in OC,where I briefly lived many, many years ago. I look forward to enjoying your rational discourse in future.

 The fact that you think this is something to "bet" about or try to win points (who with, for goodness' sake?) over indicates to me that you have plenty of time to hang about arguing with people for the sake of arguing. Regrettably, I do not. I bid you good day, and an enjoyable life.

 Apparently, you are a casual liar, since the first thought that crosses your mind is to accuse another of lying. People who do not habitually lie are slow to accuse others of lying. You are certainly welcome to do the research yourself. However, to anyone who has ever worked in the field of child sexual abuse victims, the facts are well known. I suggest you contact SNAP, themselves litigants in these cases and survivors of child sexual abuse, and ask them if the statistics are correct. There are certainly PLENTY of studies showing that these vile, sick creatures do not limit themselves to the occasional victim. The worst character of modern times must surely be Kenneth Parnell, who, in his 80s, was still attempting to procure children to abuse. If you don't KNOW who Parnell was, please look him up.

You might also wish to read about the career of Albert Fish. Something tells me you will *enjoy* the details.

Websters is not the defining word on it.  Let's be clear.  Children cannot make the same kinds of rational decisions that adults can make, where consideration of consequences prevent bad behaviors.  The teacher on the other hand likely was very premeditated according to the reports.  If I want to play devils advocate, then lets wait and see what the kiss or kisses were about, the context, the witnesses, and the child's own story.  There remains the possibility that he is already being rail-roaded, but his actions point to a possible pattern, of establishing closeness and trust, something he did not apparently do with the other couple hundred kids he encountered during a 'normal' teaching  week.  Since this topic was on meaning of a word, I sided with thepoliticalcat on that one.

You don't know any Greek or Latin, do you? Or anything about etymology? Philia (φιλία philía[3]) means friendship or affectionate love in modern Greek. It is a dispassionate virtuous love, a concept developed by Aristotle. It includes loyalty to friends, family, and community, and requires virtue, equality and familiarity. In ancient texts, philos denoted a general type of love, used for love between family, between friends, a desire or enjoyment of an activity, as well as between lovers.

Remember, Wikipedia IS your friend, as is Google. Etymology is a branch of study. Please familiarize yourself with the topic someone else is expounding on BEFORE you attempt to mock them for their lack of knowledge. Sometimes, in an attempt to make others look foolish, we end up revealing the real fools. Just a word of caution.

Webster's Dictionary: 1. A SEXUAL attraction to children. 2. SEXUAL activity of an adult with a child. Clear enough for you?

 Technically, the other poster is actually correct, since the direct translation of "philos" is "love."

" The solution is to redefine boundaries"

Or maybe, just maybe....come to our senses and drop the collective hysteria, hypocrisy, self-delusion and denial regarding teenage sexuality. Oh, and while you're at it, stop treating teenagers like 5 year olds and start giving them those rights which they've been unfairly deprived.

Imagine a better world...it's easy if you try...

" It's not the issue. How the *child* feels about her victimization has nothing to do with the fact that an adult committed a crime."

So then, these laws aren't really about "protecting children from harm" as much as they are about enforcing societal stigmas, correct? That's basically what you're saying...

"Her feelings about the issue will, no doubt, be explored in greater detail by the psychologists and social workers who will have to help her deal with the consequences of her abuse."

Ah, yes. I suppose you mean she'll be brainwashed into thinking she's undergone a terribly traumatizing experience by receiving a hug from someone older than her. If she's not a victim already, have no fear, they'll make one out of her yet!

It's not a two way street, however.  I assure you.  Children and teenagers will do things to please others and sometimes for an external reward.  It looks as he was preparing her to do favors for him, as a friend.  He exceeded his role as any kind of a role model and used authoritarian status as teacher to breach the appropriate boundaries.  The predator law is wrong!  He should be charged according to his actual crimes.  I'm sorry.  I can't even allow friend's children to engage in hugging, and they are the first to offer.  It's the f'kd world we are living in.  The solution is to redefine boundaries, starting with parents educating their children about appropriate contact with adult friends, relatives, and teachers.  The school board should also re-evaluate the relationships they encourage between un-screened or background check friendly employees and the children they were entrusted to look after.  Your point of the girl/child being part is well taken, however, as I said, children and youth do things particularly to please or annoy adults, and pleasing adults is often in their interest, especially in consideration of the fact that they have virtually no rights of their own, say for example, the right to be free from compulsory education..

Jeffrey Dillon
Jeffrey Dillon

The teacher should not treat students like nieces or nephews.  The teacher should look at these kids as the children of the surrounding community who must be respected at every level, thus, no hugging!  Hugs are fine in the right circumstances, when they are a normal part of ones behavior, and all are getting equal hugs, which are light and easily observed by others.  Otherwise, it seems odd to me that teachers should think, "I'm O.K.  Why shouldn't I hug this child?"  Because it's not your child.  Because this is not where hugs should be prioritized, in a school setting.  Because hugs should be encouraged among peers of the same age group.  on and on and on.............A school should be in part a professional, yet still relaxed setting, where children are learning their future roles as dreamers, visionaries, workers, and leaders.  We don't go around hugging people in our office cubicles, even to reassure them or offer sympathy.  When people do hug, they usually know each other very well.  The teachers should consider that hugs are a way to build trust, yet, this is not the right or only way.  The male teacher should have been censored a long time ago for being a male hugging adolescents.  It's real f'kd up, but the school system needs to figure out what professional standards are and report improper behaviors early on.  Inquisitions are dangerous.  Actually, I think this should not have happened, and the man should never have been allowed to get as close as he did.  Their relationship should end at the classroom door unless special and other arrangements were made by responsible adults acting together in the best interest of the children, not themselves.  Good luck to him.  There won't be any jobs when he gets out.

Jeffrey Dillon

I can call him a predator based on the claims of gaming together (standing close together using his mobile phone to play a game) and texting (something I don't think he should have engaged in at all, unless it was a text that went out to all the students simultaneously or to the parents with their permission to be text'd)  He is a predator if he made a habit of kisses and hugs together, and never did the same with other students, indicating he was fixated or preying on this particular girl/child.  Not only does he need to work on relationships, he needs to have mandatory counseling, court ordered, and he should be supervised for the next two years or so.  Where I agree with you is the mandatory sentence, which I don't feel fits the crime.  Parents must also take some responsibility.  What roles should parents have when their children are reaching a stage where they could be (sexually) exploited?  I also consider this kind of obsession a mental issue, less so than a criminal problem.  Given enough time, it would have been far more criminal.  I am glad he has been stopped and his character has come under fire.  I do hope he can get the help, and that the parents of that child can teach their daughter not to distrust, but to be hyper-cautious when men treat them differently than others.  The school itself should answer a few questions about what they might know about any previous issues with him.  I made my judgement, but he should not be convicted and jailed by the internet, but by a jury of his peers, and finally,  three years in an american system likely would make him worse and serve no one at all.

I already said I thought the relationship was inappropriate! He should have spurned any of her advances if she tried to initiate anything...but regardless she CHOSE to be part of it. That fact is important. I'm seriously wondering how you would have reacted to this particular scenario (and my posts about it) if this were a 14 year old BOY having relations with his FEMALE teacher. I don't think it's ever appropriate for someone in their 30s to be in a relationship with anyone under the age of 18...but there's an ugly double standard at work here and it pisses me off. A boy having relations with his female teacher is a "stud" who gets high-fives and a girl in the exact same situation is always a "victim" of a predatory older man...does that sound fair to you? It's sexist and unfair to both genders.

Oh come on. Lets say the girl "was" a "willing participant in the relationship" and she had feelings for the guy it still doesnt mean that the guy had to send her emails and hug her or kiss her back. For God's sake she was only 14!!!

 And do you think Mr. Evans would not have eventually forced this child to do things against her will? Predators often exchange victims with each other, or force their victims into sexual situations. We do not know what this man had in mind for this child, but it is a fact, substantiated by MANY studies, that girls who are sexually abused as children, whether that abuse comprises the doing of unspeakable things or the "mere" grooming by an older predator, become psychologically damaged by their abuse. These are the girls who then drop out of school, or become promiscuous, often because their feelings of self-worth have been so damaged by the predation. I hope, if you are a parent, that you will spend a little time reading about the lifelong effects of child abuse of all kinds. While it is quite true that children who are battered and raped suffer much worse PHYSICAL damage, the insiduous effects of psychological damage are lifelong. I have worked with abused children, and the damage that is done to them is not pretty. Healing that damage is lifelong work. And very few people are willing to put in that effort, so most of these suffering victims go unhealed. They then victimize others, or repeatedly seek out situations in which they themselves are victimized, thereby setting the stage for another round of victimization, often of their own children. In child abuse circles, people refer to it as "breaking the cycle of abuse." The cycle must be broken or else the abused child goes on to damage others.

Thank you for your questions and your attention.

 It's not the issue. How the *child* feels about her victimization has nothing to do with the fact that an adult committed a crime. They are two separate things. If you know anything at all about the psychology of victims of abuse, then you know about the "Stockholm syndrome." Children tend to identify with and protect their abusers.

Her feelings about the issue will, no doubt, be explored in greater detail by the psychologists and social workers who will have to help her deal with the consequences of her abuse.

And I still can't put Mr. Evans in the same category as someone who preys on little children and forces them to do unspeakable things against their will.

I agree with you. But did anyone ever bother to ask the girl how she feels about any of this?

 Children are OFF LIMITS sexually, regardless of their pubertal status. No matter how much a little boy might want to, or fantasize about, having sex with an older, more experienced woman, or a little girl fantasize about having sex with an older man, it is the duty of the OLDER PERSON in such cases to recognize that, as an adult, they have a responsibility both to the child and to SOCIETY to recognize that children's maturing brains are simply not capable of making such assessments at that age.

This man GROOMED this child for a lengthy period of time before making his move. Do you think he would have refrained from sexual intercourse with this girl? If you do, then you need to read more about the epidemic proportions of child sexual abuse and the terrible damage that they do. Adult predators are extremely wily about what they do to children, and have ORGANIZATIONS that exchange information and exchange children, as well. This child's life would have been a nightmare, had he not been caught. He deserves DECADES in jail.

Please familiarize yourself with the tragic facts of child sexual abuse, if you plan ever to be a parent. You owe it to any children you will have. You can talk to your local police sex crime unit, or you can read the DSM, or you can read some of the psychologists/psychiatrists who treat such children. Or you can get your information from the DoJ.

You are right.  It is not the same.  Teenagers are willing participants in these "relationships."  Many consider them to be bragging points.  So many teens are too cozy with their teachers and coaches.  I see it all the time.  Young girls run up to adults and hug them; sometimes groups of them.  Teen boys that are overtly social - even sexual - toward female teachers.  Even homosexual inuendos in the classroom.
