EDGAR CO. (ECWd) -
Of all people to interview on issues related to children, Dr. John Wheatley was on the front page of the Paris Beacon News this morning. It looks like he is attempting to get into the public eye again, and why wouldn't he since his contract at Shiloh School District was not renewed.
He recently gave an interview to the Paris Beacon News in reference to school district funding - they must not have been aware of his past criminal matters.
Some of our long term readers may remember his name, but just in case you don't, here is the article we wrote several in July of 2012 detailing the FACT that he has a criminal history. Not just any criminal history, but one in which he was charged with Criminal Sexual Abuse, and Battery ---> on a STUDENT in the High School where he was employed.
He is featured on "Hidden Violations", the Mount Vernon Register, the Illinois State Board Of Education, Disclosure News Magazine, and in our article. All explaining the critical flaw, and using his case as a premier example of that flaw, in the reporting and tracking of school teacher misconduct in Illinois.
He did attempt to get the records expunged (HERE), but that FAILED because you can only get items expunged where you were found not guilty (EXPUNGMENT RULES HERE). Clearly that was not the disposition of his case since it was denied.
