Wisconsin teacher Abby Dibbs arrested for sex with teenage student

Former Wisconsin teacher Abby Dibbs has been arrested and charged with the sex assault of a student, WKOW reports.

Before her downfall due to sex-abuse charges, Abby Dibbs was an English teacher at Portage High School in Portage, Wisconsin.

The 35-year-old had her first court appearance on Friday.

As a condition of the former teacher’s bail, the judge insisted that Abby Dibbs have no contact with the 17-year-old boy she allegedly molested.

Dibbs, 35, appeared for a court hearing Friday from the Columbia County Jail. The judge’s bail conditions for Dibbs included barring her from contact with a 17-year old boy, no unsupervised contact with other children other than her own child, and a prohibition against being at Portage High School.

Abby Dibbs posted the $3,500 bail, which meant the former teacher could go free as she awaits her trial on the sexual assault charges.

As recently as Friday, Ashley Dibbs was still listed online as a teacher at the Portage school. But school district officials insisted that in the wake of her sex-abuse charges, she was no longer employed.

The officials declined to give details of how Dibbs and the school came to part ways.

Madison.com reports that Abby Dibbs has flat-out admitted to sexually abusing one of her students while she was a teacher.

A former Portage High School teacher charged with two counts of sexual assault of a student by school staff on Friday admitted to having sex with the boy twice, according to a criminal complaint. Portage police said in a statement that Abby M. Dibbs, 35, of Cross Plains, was arrested for sexual assault of a child on Wednesday after the Portage Community School District administration contacted police.

According to the criminal complaint against the former teacher, Wisconsin police interviewed Abby Dibbs on May 26 about her alleged sexual abuse of a 17-year-old boy at her school. 

She proceeded to admit that the boy came to her home twice the previous weekend and that she had sexually assaulted him both times.

Abby Dibbs further stated that she and the boy had discussed how they felt about one another and mutually acknowledged that she had crossed a boundary between teacher and student when she sexually defiled him.

Channel 3000 reported on the statement from the school district regarding Dibbs’ arrest. 

“We feel confident that the high school and all district buildings are safe and secure for all students and staff,” the statement reads.

“We appreciate the efforts of our law enforcement in addressing this matter,” continued the statement about Abby Dibbs after the teacher was arrested and slammed with sex-abuse charges.

In a police interview with the 17-year-old, the boy reported that he and his teacher, Abby Dibbs, did indeed engage in two acts of sexual intercourse. 

The boy went so far as to profess his love for the teacher, and expressed contempt toward the individual who “snitched” about their affair. The victim’s mother, however, insisted that the individual who reported Dibbs’ sexual abuse did the right thing.  

NBC 15 reports that if convicted, Dibbs could get saddled with a 15-year sentence.

If she is convicted, Dibbs can face up to 12 years in prison and $20,000 for both charges.

Bartender’s fake receipt saves women from being hit on by ‘creep’

Bartender's fake receipt saves women from being hit on by 'creep'

A Florida bartender saved two women from being hit by a creepy customer by passing them a note disguised as a receipt — and went viral online for the quick-thinking move.

The St. Petersburg drink-slinger, Max Gutierrez, shot to internet fame last week, when a woman named Trinity Allie shared on Twitter how he helped her and a friend fend off an unwanted pick-up artist in St. Petersburg.

When another customer repeatedly hit on the women, the Hawaiian shirt-wearing barkeep handed Allie a note that looked like a receipt, but read: “If this guy is bothering you, put your ponytail on your other shoulder, and I will have him removed. He’s giving me the creeps.”

“This man was harrassssing me and my friend and the bartender passed this note to me acting like it was my receipt ! Legit the type of bartender everyone needs,” Allie’s caption read.

In a follow-up tweet the woman explained that Gutierrez yelled “you need to get the f—k away from these girls who clearly are not interested,” before kicking him out.

Allie also clarified that she had Gutierrez pose for the picture after the incident, not while she was being harassed.

More than 200,000 people liked the viral tweet, many of them leaving comments praising the smooth mixologist.

“Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear Hawaiian shirts,” one appreciative woman wrote.

Four days after the tweet went viral, Gutierrez tweeted that the sleazy patron came back to the bar for a beer — but the hero barman refused to serve him.

Alabama car crash during tropical storm kills 10, 9 kids

Ten people, including nine children, died Saturday in a fiery two-vehicle crash in storm-drenched Butler County, Alabama, according to local authorities.

Cops said the two vehicles — an SUV carrying a father and daughter and a small bus hauling girls from Tallapoosa County Girls Ranch — likely hydroplaned on I-65’s wet roads just before 2:30 p.m. as Tropical Storm Claudette plowed through the region, AL.com reported.

The father and daughter, identified by the county coroner as Cody Fox, 29, and 9-month-old Ariana, were killed, as were eight girls who were traveling in the bus.

Garlock said a bystander successfully pulled the bus driver from the vehicle, but that, “It was too late to get back to [the girls] because the bus was engulfed in fire.”

Authorities have not released the names of the girls, who ranged in age from 4 to 17, according to AL.com.

Tallapoosa County Girls Ranch is a long-term residential facility for “school-age girls from troubled backgrounds,” according to its website. Many of the bus passengers were in the care of the state.

Fox worked in emergency management in his home county of Marion County, Tennessee, authorities said.

Multiple people were also injured, according to Butler County Sheriff Danny Bond.

The Girls Ranch asked for “prayers” in a Facebook post at 10 p.m. on Saturday.

“Our hearts are heavy today. Our ranch has suffered great loss. As some of you may have hear, one of our ranch vehicles was involved in a multiple car accident this afternoon,” the statement said.

“Please send prayers our way as we navigate this difficult time.”

The girls attended Reeltown High School in Tallapoosa County, WBRC said.

Claudette dumped as much as 12 inches of rain along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, causing dangerous flash flooding in northern Georgia, most of South Carolina, the North Carolina coast, parts of southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.

VA plans to cover gender surgery for trans vets, in policy reversal

VA plans to cover gender surgery for trans vets, in policy reversal

The Department of Veterans Affairs is taking the first steps toward offering gender-reassignment surgery to transgender vets, VA Secretary Denis McDonough announced Saturday at a Florida celebration of Pride Month.

“Transgender vets [will] go through the full gender confirmation process with VA at their side,” McDonough promised a cheering crowd in Orlando, CNN reported.

The VA has been paying for prescription hormone therapy and mental health treatment for transgender veterans since 2013. But the directive that authorized those benefits, issued by the Obama administration, specifically excluded surgical procedures.

The policy change comes at the behest of President Biden, McDonough said. Biden rescinded President Trump’s ban on transgender service members in January, and in May the US Air Force and Space Force issued new guidelines on the equitable treatment of members undergoing gender transition.

“At the end of the day this is in the President’s authority to do,” McDonough said. “He’s made clear it’s time to do it and that’s precisely what we’ll do.”

A VA spokesman estimated that fewer than 4,000 vets would likely be interested in the surgery, the Orlando Sentinel reported — and said that the agency had not calculated its potential costs.

McDonough’s announcement signals the start of a lengthy rulemaking process of up to two years that will include a period of public comment.
