Seattle: Former Student-Teacher Romance Leads To Domestic Violence
Seattle Police say that the man, Jonathan Wendale Williams, became erratic and mentally unstable after a relationship ended with his former teacher, 47-year-old unnamed woman who teachers in Seattle Public Schools. According to court reports, the two did not see each other for years after their teacher-student relationship ended, but that Williams contacted her recently and they began dating. A few months later, in December 2009, the woman attempted to end their sexual relationship, sending Williams over the edge.
Allegedly, the young man began to harass the woman with hundreds of phone calls and at one point threatened to rape her and force her to have the baby. Finally, he began to threaten to contact the Seattle Public Schools Superintendent and falsely claim that she had molested him as a student. He also began to claim that he would release photographs of the couple kissing at the North Seattle Public School where she teaches. In the end, Williams told her that he would stop threatening her if she paid him $1,000.
In jail, Williams admitted that he only made the threats to get her attention and that their sexual relationship did not begin until he was a consenting adult.
