“Dear Hixson Parents and Guardians: I am writing today to let you know that Spanish teacher Robert Wilson will be out for an indefinite period of time starting with the beginning of the school year.
“The district has hired highly qualified staff to take his place in the classroom. Please know that Hixson administrators will work closely to help ensure that students in these classes succeed academically,” said principal Dr. Stacie Smith.
Wilson was formally charged with promoting prostitution in the third degree on July 18. The crime is alleged to have occurred on Jan. 20, at 1848 Bowels Ave. in Fenton, according to the Saint Louis County complaint report.
Within a mile of the alleged location, there are four hotels: Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Motel Six, Pear Tree Inn, and Drury Inn & Suites, according to Google Maps.
The Saint Louis County Police Department’s probable cause statement said, “The facts supporting this belief are as follows: The defendant aided Stephanie Emery to engage in acts of prostitution by providing her with security, utilizing the money she would earn, providing her with transportation, and helping her post ads to solicit clientele.”
Wilson is still listed in the staff directory for Hixson Middle School, although Smith said he was out for an “indefinite amount of time.”
