John Mark Karr's Arrest in JonBenet Ramsey Case Highlights Importance of 'Back to School' Sex Offender Searches for Teachers

Share Article

Online criminal checks are a great way to gain valuable information on a child’s teacher, states online personal investigation news magazine People Search News.

With the arrest of former teacher John Mark Karr in the JonBenet Ramsey case last week comes an uneasy feeling for parents everywhere as they wonder, just who is really taking care of my child? Therefore, to help protect children from teachers like alleged sex offender Karr, online personal investigation news site People Search News (PSN) is urging parents to conduct online criminal checks of their children’s teachers this year.

Online criminal checks can provide a snap shot of a teacher’s possible criminal history, including felony and misdemeanor convictions and even sex offender registration. According to People Search News editor Guy Dubleche, most school districts have different screening methods for teaching candidates, which are not always effective. “It would be terrible if a school failed to properly screen a teacher and we allowed another alleged criminal like John Mark Karr to be around our youth,” states Dubleche.

Online background check organizations like ( can provide users with an accurate criminal history report on a subject in less than a minute, even from the comforts of the user’s home. “Most people think that performing a background or criminal check is a complicated process or that your subject will find out that you are performing a check on him or her. However, performing these checks online is a very simple and anonymous process,” states Dubleche.

With children changing teachers and possibly schools this semester, Dubleche is urging parents to conduct their criminal checks on their children’s teachers before the school year starts.

“Back to school time is the best time to perform checks on teachers because you can prevent a possible sex offender, or alleged criminal like John Mark Karr, from ever interacting with your child,” adds Dubleche.
