Spanish teacher in Webster Groves suspended after criminal charges
Posted on Tuesday, August 16th, 2016
A teacher at a middle school in Webster Groves was indefinitely suspended after police suspected he was encouraging prostitution on the side, an article of komov.com reported on August 11.
Reports said the school district decided to indefinitely suspend Hixson Middle School teacher Robert Wilson after he was charged with facilitating prostitution activity in January. The woman Wilson allegedly assisted was identified as Stephanie Emery. Wilson provided Emery with security in exchange for a cut of the money coming from her work. He also helped her look for new clients through advertisements. Wilson, who was a Spanish language teacher at Hixson for 17 years, was replaced by a new teacher recently hired by the district.
