(02/16/06 - DURHAM) - A Durham middle school teacher is facing charges after allowing a student to spend the night at her home.

According to the Durham County Sheriff's Office, Janet Briggs, 43, allegedly allowed a 14-year-old student to spend the night at her home more than once.

Briggs worked at Chewning Middle School as an eighth-grade teacher until she resigned on February 3. Just days later, the boy's father filed a complaint and pressed charges. Briggs was arrested Wednesday.

According to police warrants, the first sleepover occurred December 16. Officials say the male student was invited to her home a second time on January 31, but the student did not spend the night.

Sgt. Will Oakley of the Durham County Sheriff's Office says both Briggs and the boy deny any sexual contact, but he says the boy was allowed to sleep in her bedroom.

Briggs has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Briggs was release Wednesday afternoon without bond. She has signed a written an agreement to have no contact with the boy or his family.

Briggs worked with Durham Public Schools for 11 years. School officials are conducting an internal investigation.

Briggs is out of jail on the misdemeanor charge and ordered to stay away from the boy.

....misdemeanor charge....

If I were the parent the misdemeanor charge would have me screaming. Why the parent would allow the sleep over is another question,

"both Briggs and the boy deny any sexual contact, but he says the boy was allowed to sleep in her bedroom."

A misdemeanor? Either the law or the DA has to be changed. This is not normal behavior.

The charges should be cruel and unusual punishment.

I sincerely hope for the kid's sake it was because it was the last resort.

At fourteen I would guess that his hormones and curiosity got the best of him.

Lately, most of these public school sex pistols look like they could not do better than seduce a child in puberty. Is it just me?

Also, I am wondering if these sorry things are the ones who lead the sex education arguments against parents who want privacy and respect for kids in the public schools. Remember Clinton's Surgeon General who wanted to teach other peoples children the joy of circle jerking? Was she named joyce elders?

Yep...that is the one!

She was undoubtedly the dumbest woman ever to serve in a cabinet position.

I loved listening to her give a speech. Not only did she did she misuse words, but you never understood what the hell point she was trying to get over to her audience.

What a loser!
