18 SC teachers cited in 2 years for student sex

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The State Board of Education has disciplined 18 South Carolina teachers in the past two years for sexual offenses against students.

The State of Columbia reports that the latest teacher disciplined is Kinsley Wentzky, a Dreher High School teacher who had her teaching certificate suspended last week after she was charged with two counts of sexual battery with a student.

Education officials entered Wentzky's name into a national database of suspended teachers.

Wentzky's lawyer says he didn't know his client's license was suspended and wouldn't talk about the case.

The State Board of Education has reprimanded or suspended or revoked the licenses of 143 teachers in South Carolina since the beginning of 2011 for problems ranging from coming to school drunk to defaulting on loans for teacher certification exams.
