For a moment I thought this had some connection to the Obama national “teach in” scheduled for next week, and carried out by masses of NEA-liberal swamp scum.

Female teacher accused of statutory rape against students?

What does this make? Like fifty times I've heard this story?

Seriously, what the hell?

Good grief. Modern teachers are just lame-ass losers.

Good God! What is it with this age range? I notice a lot of twenty-something to thirty teachers doing this sort of garbage!

Statistically, the vast majority of young female teachers don’t do this. This sort of thing is common enough to make the news frequently, but rare enough to make the news in the first place.

I don’t see why those that do it feel the need to get themselves in trouble by doing it this way. I like younger men (my boyfriend is seven years younger than me), but I don’t chase high school boys.

This can not be called “rape”. A woman can not rape a man. Not possible. They need to come up with another term.

Not willing to pronounce guilt or innocence at this point. Need more evidence. A poorly lit mugshot photo can be misleading.

While the teacher definately should be punished, I’ve always thought that in cases like this the boys should be punished in some way too.

I will bet you that they were willing participants and loved every minute they could have with this teacher.

She may have been using them, but they were using her back.

They might like some cigarettes, alcohol, and drugs too but it would likewise be criminal for her to provide a 15 year old and 17 year old with them.

The teacher is expected to be the adult. People in a position of power are expected to set and enforce standards.

True. And it would be illegal for them to willingly partake of the drugs.

I agree. Shouldn’t we have expectations and standards for our young men too?

Or should we just treat them as childlike victims when they were willingly participating?

It would also be illegal for them to drink the beer or whiskey and to smoke the cigarettes.

Are you upset that jailbait gets off scott free?

Would you rather lower the age of consent to 12? Talk to your legislator.

So only daughters are victimized?

If this had been a male teacher seducing young boys, would that have been alright too?

Homosexuals say that they aren’t attracted to heterosexuals. So if they are preying on young boys, maybe their gaydar sees them as fellow homosexuals.

Who are you to judge? < /sarc >

Of course not. And yes it would be illegal for the teenagers to imbibe the tobacco, alcohol, and drugs too.

The teacher broke the law. The teenage boys didn’t, break the law “statutorily speaking” and therefore should not be put in prison, but there is a problem here that needs to be addressed on both ends.

I’m not judging, I’m commenting. Teenage boys can be victims too, but for boys who are thrilled and love every minute of the older woman’s affections, and willingly go along, I think there is a problem there too.

Cheaper by the contract.

I seem to have touched a nerve with you. I’m sorry. You must have boys. I have girls. It’s terrible when this sort of thing happens, and it seems to be happening with increasing frequency, the teachers having sex with their students. I wish we could just stop this from happening somehow.

You may be overgeneralizing; there are a lot of good modern teachers. Your reaction is like looking at Senator Larry Craig and saying that all modern republican politicians are just lame ... um ... nevermind.

This can not be called “rape”. A woman can not rape a man.

I believe the charge is really statutory rape, meaning that sexual intercourse with underage persons (male or female) is by legal definition "rape" regardless of consent.

A minor can no more consent to sex in the eyes of the law than consent to medical treatment (abortion exalted and excepted) or sign a legal contract.
