Joliet West teacher arrested in prostitution sting

October 18, 2013 (JOLIET, Ill.)

Joliet Township High School officials say they were notified of the Sept. 24 arrest of Kevin Boles, 40, Wednesday. School officials say Boles has been placed on administrative leave.

The high school website lists Boles as an English and drama teacher who directs the fall play and serves as assistant coach of the speech team. Boles teaches sophomore honors English, Drama 1 and Drama 2 and earned a bachelors in English and a masters in special education from Lewis University, the site says.

The Joliet Herald reports that Boles, who's been with the school district for 15 years, was arrested Sept. 24 in Romeoville with four other men amid a sting operation on Lakeview Drive.
