This Teacher EXPLOITED Countless Students – Here’s His Name
(FeaturedNews.com) – A former school teacher in Harrison County, Iowa, faces several serious charges for allegedly molesting students. Benjamin T. Work was immediately placed on administrative leave in April when investigators began looking into allegations of an inappropriate relationship with a student. However, what they found was far more disturbing than initially thought and involved not just one but several pupils.
Work allegedly molested as many as six of his students while working as a teacher at the West Harrison School District. The reported abuse happened over the 2021-22 school year, culminating in an investigation. As authorities closed in on charges, Work resigned his position. A week later, on June 10, he was arrested.

The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department booked Work on five misdemeanor charges of lascivious conduct with a minor and two misdemeanor counts of indecent contact with a child. He also faces five felony counts of sexual exploitation by a school employee.
The Iowa Department of Public Safety issued a press release about Work’s arrest noting that the sheriff’s office received help from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation. If convicted, Work faces some serious prison time. The felony charges alone carry up to 10 years in jail each.
If he is guilty, should this man ever see the outside of a jail cell again?
