Former Teacher Facing Sex Charges

DUNMORE — A former special education teacher was arrested in Lackawanna County, accused of having inappropriate contact with three students.

Domenique McKillop, 27, was charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, institutional sexual assault, and several other sex charges.

McKillop was brought into the state police barracks in Dunmore Thursday afternoon.

According to court papers, McKillop was a special education teacher at the Vision Quest Standing Timbers Academy near Gouldsboro from October 2012 to September of 2013.

The school offers services to at-risk children.

State police say during her time there McKillop had sexual contact with three of her male students, both on school grounds and in her car near the school. The boys were 14, 15, and 16 years old.

Police say McKillop also shared inappropriate photos with the students.

“Any time a teacher would take advantage of the children in her care, whether they be special needs or not, is obviously egregious,” said Trooper Connie Devens.

McKillop was fired from the school last year for repeatedly violating company policy.
