Texas (The Gaslamp Post) – A Christian day-school teacher has been fired and a school principal is on paid leave, after it was discovered that she made her fourth grade students become pen pals with a paedophile.

Officials at Trinity Lutheran Church and School say that Laura Perry, family friend of the jailed offender, Rickey Rowlett, believed that he was falsely accused and put the project together herself.

The letters written to Rowlett from the students, were done prior to his conviction and sentencing on March 22, 2012.  He was sentenced to 50 years in prison for sexually abusing a girl.  Investigators discovered the letters around that time.

As you can imagine, the student’s parents are suing for negligence.
