The outbreak of female high school teachers having sex with their teenage male students has been pervasive. Unfortunately, most have gotten off with a slap on the wrist. That is, until sexual predator, and teacher, Kathryn Ronk met the Chief Judge of the Oakland County Sixth Circuit Court, Nanci J. Grant.
Kathryn Ronk (née Turnley), 30, went to the University of Michigan on a scholarship and graduated with the highest of honors.
In 2011, she was married to Adam Ronk, 32. They do not have any children.
In August of 2013, Mrs. Ronk was hired, as a Spanish teacher, by Bishop Foley Catholic High School. The high school is located in Madison Hts., Michigan, just north of Detroit.
Less than a year later, in May of 2014, the party ended for Kathryn Ronk.
She was arrested for raping a 15-year-old student at the high school, after his parents, and principal of the high school, the Reverend Gerry LeBoeuf, filed a complaint with the police.
Ronk turned herself into police and posted the required 10% of her $500,000 bail. She was also required to wear a GPS locator and was then released on her own recognizance.
Ronk was charged with five counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct which, if convicted, would have meant life in prison. Instead, Ronk pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Ronk is accused of having “multiple acts of sexual penetration”, with the victim, at Bishop Foley High School. This sexually abusive activity took place, with frequency, in her classroom, both between classes and during breaks in her schedule.
The admirable Judge Nanci Grant, 51, was not swayed by Mrs. Ronk’s tears and apology and instead, sentenced this deviant woman to 6 to 15 years in prison. She will not be eligible for parole for 5 1/2 years.
Judge Grant was furious that Ronk’s friends and family, who swamped her office with letters of support for Mrs. Ronk, never showed any concern for the boy.
Judge Grant said at the sentencing, “I have never seen letters of support for a defendant with nothing about the victim. They were all about you and what you were going through. Poor you. Ignoring a crime and a victim and ignoring an ongoing involvement, in school, outside school, and in a car. You did something you shouldn’t have done.”
Judge Grant’s comment, “All about you and what you were going through”, is telling. This is the typical mentality of a young, radical, feminist who is awash with the, “it’s all about me” ideology of radical, third-wave feminism.
This is the twisted ideology, that also espouses the “empowerment” of young women, through sexually explicit behavior.
As a result of this bizarre brainwashing, the resultant, self-absorbed feminist freaks are incapable of sympathy, empathy, or true love, even for the unfortunate men, like Adam Ronk, who love them.
Judge Grant went on to reprimand Ronk when she said, “You’re really very smart, an intelligent woman” while continuing to tell Ronk that, as a result, Ronk had to know that what she was doing with the boy was improper.
The Judge also said, “Fifteen is 15. He’s still a boy figuring out the ways in the world.” She continued to say that Ronk’s deplorable behavior with the youngster may continue to manifest itself “for years to come.”
To those who criticized Judge Grant’s stiff sentencing of Ronk, Judge Grant responded, “If this was a male teacher, who had been involved with a 15-year-old female, there would be people here hanging from the ceiling trying to get every drop of blood. But because it is a woman, there seems to be a winking about what happened.”
During an interview with the Detroit Free Press, Judge Grant elaborated on the comments she made during Ronk’s sentencing, when she said, “You are dealing with children that are still developing emotionally. To have this continuing double standard is unacceptable. The law does not recognize a double standard, the law is clearly, on point, in terms that these children are developing human beings. This was a person in a position with power and influence over him.”
The youngster’s parents said they felt victimized by this “trusted” teacher. They also said that their faith has helped them persevere through this blatant betrayal and that they are grateful to Judge Grant for her intestinal fortitude on this matter.
Judge Nanci Grant has a stellar reputation as a judge. She is a graduate of Wayne State University Law School and, after being in private practice, joined the bench in 1996 at the age of 32.
Judge Grant is the daughter of Judge Barry Grant, who retired from the Oakland County Probate Court in 2008, twelve years after issuing the oath of office to his daughter.
Nanci Grant is married to attorney Mark Frankel, whom she met on a blind date, which was set up by her cousin, while they were both in law school.
Of her husband, she is proudly quoted as saying, “Mark is a brilliant attorney, and is all about character and integrity. He is my go-to person, someone I can count on every step of the way in life.” They have two sons, 23-year-old Zachary and 20-year-old Eric.
Judge Grant is also devoted to her mother, Lisa, who attended the University of Vermont and Wayne State University. She refers to her mother as the “rock of the family.” Nanci also has two brothers, Jim and Scott, who are both physicians.
We must all admire Judge Nanci Grant for her stern, and stiff, sentencing of Kathryn Ronk, as it is long overdue for these types of female sexual predators. But, she should also be admired for her long, and successful career, defined by her constant battle for the lives of young people in trouble.
In an interview she said, referring to an associate of hers in the court, “Judge Pezzetti regularly sends juveniles down to my court to sit in on my criminal call. It’s meant to be an eye-opener for them, to give them an idea of what can happen when they break the law. After I’m done, I like to sit down with them and have a face-to-face conversation, asking them if they know what it means to break a parent’s heart. I tell them that they are at a crossroads. They can take the perceived easier road and continue to get in trouble, or they can take the harder road of hanging out with the kids who study, who are involved in sports and music, and who perform community service. It’s their choice, but it’s a decision that will ripple throughout their family and throughout their life. I get really passionate about that message.”
Obviously, Judge Nanci Grant is a purveyor of “tough love” in her defense of youngster’s futures, as well as a purveyor of tough sentencing for those who would prey on the young. Oakland County is very lucky to have her as a judge.
As for Mrs. Kathryn Ronk? Well, her troubles are far from over. She must now face charges stemming from her sexual encounters with the same boy, in another jurisdiction. This time the charges have to do with her perverted activities while at the 15-year-old’s home in Macomb Township, and in a car on a Sterling Heights street.
Once again, Ronk has been charged with three new counts of first-degree sexual conduct, one count of possession of sexually abusive material featuring a child, and one count of furnishing alcohol to a minor. I guess the last charge doesn’t surprise those who know her, since she is obviously a girl who likes to “party.”
Her outrageous sexual behavior, and her drunken “partying”, can also be traced back to Ronk’s substitution of the “liberated” ideology of radical, third-wave feminism for the tenets of her Christian faith. This always leaves the adherent, “happy” and half-human.
Ronk’s trial begins on March 31st, 2015. We can only hope that this sitting judge has the same disgusted reaction as Judge Nanci Grant, and that he throws-the-book at Ronk once again.
And maybe then, the remainder of the out-of-control radical, third-wave feminist teachers in the country, who are considering seducing one of their teenage students, will finally sit up and take notice!
