>>> Dumb As A Rock!!! <<< >>> This complete idiot taught your children for thirty years!!! <<< I'll be adding more links, articles & info to this thread over the next few days, but this guy is the ultimate clueless loser. This bozo taught in numerous schools in the St. Louis, Missouri, area over a thirty-year period, shagged a number of his female students and never got caught. Upon retirement he moved to Ely, Minnesota. After a couple years, thinking that the statute of limitations had expired (it hadn't ), he called the authorities in the St. Louis area "to clear his conscience". >>> Busted!!! <<< Name: Donald Ingerson, Ely, Minnesota (retirement residence) Age: 67 Schools (partial list): Formerly taught at Ferguson Middle School, Ferguson, Missouri Freshman baseball coach, Ritenour High School, St. Louis, Missouri, February 2011 to April 2012 Science teacher & coach, McCluer High School, Florissant, Missouri, 1987 to 2010 Assistant baseball coach, Ritenour High School, St. Louis, Missouri, June 2001 to September 2005 Taught biology and coached football & wrestling at University City High School, University City, Missouri, 1976 to 1981 Physical science teacher and football & wrestling coach, W.

City Pages: Donald Ingerson of Ely confesses rape thinking statute of limitations is up, gets arrested (Aug 2 2012) Donald Ingerson, 67, taught science and coached baseball at St. Louis-area high schools from the 1970s up through last spring, when he retired and moved to Ely, Minnesota. During his teaching career, Ingerson apparently sexually assaulted at least two students, one in 1974 and another in 1995. But the assaults, at least one of which included rape, were never reported to school officials or the police and Ingerson was able to wrap up his career without punishment. Though the assaults remained between himself and his victims, Ingerson was beating himself up over what he'd done. In June, he placed an unsolicited call to St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch and confessed to the assaults, reportedly because he wanted to clear his conscience. Ingerson did so in the belief that the statute of limitation had expired, thus exempting him from any criminal culpability -- but he was mistaken. He drove hundreds of miles to St. Louis to "discuss" the assaults with investigators? If he really didn't suspect he might be arrested, then, assaults aside, we feel sorry for the students who "learned" in Ingerson's classes for the better part of four decades. Riverfront Times Blog: Criminally Stupid: Donald Ingerson Confessed to Sexual Assault, Is Quite Surprised to Be Arrested (Aug 1 2012) St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch just got a freebie. Retired St. Louis County school teacher Donald Ingerson, 67, allegedly felt the need to clear his conscience, and called McCulloch's office to admit he sexually assaulted two female students during his career. Sure, it sounds like the doings of a man attempting to right some wrongs. But according to McCulloch, the only reason Ingerson 'fessed up is because he believed the statute of limitations on these crimes had expired, and Ingerson could get all the conscience-salving benefits of a confession without having to face any punishment. McCulloch believes the statute of limitations have not expired, and that Ingerson can indeed be brought to trial. As a former teacher, you'd think Ingerson would have checked his work before turning it in, so to speak. Ingerson allegedly committed the assaults in 1974 and 1995; the statute of limitations is 30 years. McCulloch's legal opinion is that the 30 years starts ticking from the time the victim becomes an adult, meaning he can prosecute both cases -- a prosecution that begins with an uncoerced confession seemingly already in hand. But wait, there's more. Ingerson made his fateful phone call in June. In the intervening months, investigators tracked down the two victims, told them of the new developments and they both confirmed the assaults. At that point the investigators contacted Ingerson at his home in Minnesota and asked him to drive down to St. Louis to discuss the assaults with them. When Ingerson arrived, he was arrested and charged with rape and statutory sodomy. He's being held in county jail on $300,000 cash-only bond. What a complete patsy!!! He even saved them the cost and trouble of extraditing him from Minnesota.
