Identifies a sample of criminal cases related to educator sexual misconduct (regardless of the specific criminal statute the defendant was ultimately charged under). The sample of cases all involve a defendant who was connected to the victim through their roles as an educator or school staff member, and who are alleged to have had physical sexual contact with a minor. Provides a sample of criminal cases specific to educator sexual misconduct even if the defendant's custodial relationship to the minor is not specifically referenced in any of the criminal charges. The sample was identified through news media coverage of criminal proceedings based on a content analysis of newspaper archives and court records available in the LexisNexis news. Cases include convictions ranging from improper relationship between educator and student, to contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
