Teacher, 39, 'had sex with an 18-year-old she was chaperoning on a trip
dailymail ^

Posted on 06/07/2011 3:17:52 PM PDT by traumer

Yet another teacher in Texas has been jailed for having sex with one of her students.

Christina McCann is the fourth teacher from the Lone Star state to be locked up in recent weeks for illegal sexual activity with a student. The 39-year-old is alleged to have had sex with an 18-year-old student she was chaperoning during a conference for future business leaders.

Investigators in Austin,Texas claim McCann had been drinking with some of the six students she was in charge of during a competition organised by the Distributive Education Clubs of America. Detectives believe McCann was drinking alcohol with the students when one of them returned to her hotel room and a sexual encounter took place. The incident took place in February while McCann and her students were staying at a hotel in Fort Worth.

Married teacher found partially naked in car with 17-year-old student avoids jail thanks to plea deal (but she can teach again in three years) The students, from Lake Travis High School in Austin, were competing against other schools in a competition.

The Distributive Education Clubs of America seeks to prepare students to become leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance and hospitality. Police began investigating McCann after a tip off and she resigned from her job as a marketing teacher at the High School last month.

A warrant was issued for her arrest last week and McCann turned herself in on Monday. She was charged with an improper relationship between educator and student. Bail was set at $10,000. McCann follows three other Texas teachers who are all facing jail after being charged with having sex with their students. Britni Colleps, 27, of Arlington, is accused of having sex with five of her students. Her husband has vowed to stand by her and dismissed

After a 6 pack I might hit it.

The kid is 18, he is an adult. What is the issue?

Provisionally guilty.

The “student” is a STUDENT! That is the issue. The age of the student is NOT the determining factor.

There is an implied power position. But with adulthood comes the implicit ability to discern.

Actually, I say yes that age is the whole point. One age is legal and another age is not.

The issue is one of a teacher having power over the student.

The issue is that other students can suffer grade-wise or by other favoritisms. This is more of an issue in college and grad school, but it doesn’t disappear here. I agree that at 18 there is less of an issue (he was of age and probably horny) but this possible favoritism is an issue still.

Oh please,, the student had power over the TEACHER. If she ever stops giving out the sugar, he can threathen to make a phone call that gets her arrested. And sice when does a female teacher need to THREATEN a normal red blooded 18 year old male? If he says no, there are 10 more ready to step up.

If he’s 18, let the good times roll.

PS,, guilty except at an advanced BAC.

In Texas it is written into the law prohibiting teachers from having sexual relations with students. It has not been “tested” to the higher courts, so I understand your argument.

I am just saying that currently THAT is against the law in TX.

The issue isn't with whether the behavior is wrong. The issue is with the punishment. When the participants are both adults, the punishment for the teacher should be firing, not prison.

It does put a spotlight on the law. But you are right about potential favoritism. But that can happen in college as well with only academic and/or job repercussions.

I think it is a bubble legislators did not take into consideration.

Hmmm. Well at least one of the students seems to have done rather well. What about the rest?

Say, isn't competing in a competition redundant?

I can understand her getting fired, but JAIL? The student is an adult. This is getting ridiculous that the law has to be involved. The school should just fire the teacher for fraternization. Where were these teachers when I was in school. Anyone over 30 were RIPPED OFF!!!! lol.

I don’t necessarily.....HOWEVER, JAIL???? That is where the line should be drawn. Fire her, but don’t put her in jail. He is 18 years old. There is not one issue here that should cause her to go to jail.

Ask a teacher what happens if they make a kids grade suffer after they hit on a kid and the kid says no. You guys are nuts to think she had power over him. The instant she so much as HAD A BEER with them, the kids owned her.

It would be more plausible to expect that a kid could blackmail HER into doing what he wanted. But anyway, this sounds consensual, between adults.

6 pack of Jack Daniels maybe.

I dunno, I was an undersexed, overstimulated 18 year old boy, once. In that state, so long as she didn't have a full beard, and had bathed within the past month, she'd look pretty good.

Who said that? No, it's not OK. But it doesn't need to be a criminal offense either. Just because something is a bad idea doesn't mean it has to be against the law. School district policy is plenty.

But now I read that apparently Texas does have such a law. The only way that makes any sense is if there is any evidence of coercion. Absent that... and if everybody's over 18, there's no reason that a law needs to cover it. Let the school discipline or fire the teacher. Done.
