EAGLE COUNTY, Colo. -- A teacher in Eagle County was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust with a pattern of sexual abuse.

Lauren Redfern, 25, is a physical education teacher at Basalt High School.

Redfern is accused of having sex with a 17-year-old male student over a duration of 4 months, deputies said.

She is being held without bond until she makes her first appearance before a judge.

Judge Howard Lawrence Carr will direct a verdict of Not Guilty. DA “Sandy” will object. Judge Carr will over rule her.

As I recall. Having not achieved the age of 18 until the October after I graduated High School. I would not have considered myself a victim.

Some kids will do anything to get a good grade. (snicker)

Apparently, in Colorado, the age of consent is 17.

I agree-17 is NOT a “child”-what is the age of consent in Colorado?

That said, a teacher having sex with a student should still be worthy of dismissal-I’ve worked for businesses that forbade sex between supervisors and those they supervised, and I agree with that.

If there’s a specific law against a teacher having sex with a student, then she’s certainly violated it and should be punished, but jail for sex with a 17 year old?

She should lose her teaching license, but no jail time. And certainly NO charges that would lead her to having to register as a sex offender.

I would have gladly volunteered to be a “victim of a sexual assault” by a 25 year old teacher at that age.

Some one I am very close to had a sexual relationship at age 17 with a young new teacher. They will be married 30 years next month.

A bit jowly, but overall, NOT GUILTY.

That being said, I note that my standards have dropped as I've gotten older.

They were there. This has never been that uncommon. Once upon a time a high school male scoring some hot female teacher would have been a badge of honor and something to tell friends about later in life. That didn't make it right, only that 16-17 year old boys are not children and aren't generally forced into sex by attractive teachers. Nowadays stories like these are just way overdone. Again, not saying it's right. If a woman teacher is doing this and gets caught she should be dismissed. It's just that I seriously doubt most/any 16-17 year old boy is actually mentally scarred from this sort of thing.

Correct, however the teacher committed a crime because she was in a position of authority over the student in a public institution, using authority to coerce sex, sexual assault, not statutory rape.

A tough looking group of bikers were riding when they saw a woman about to jump off a bridge, so they stopped.

The leader, a big burly man, gets off his bike and says, “What are you doing?”

“I’m going to commit suicide,” she says.

While he didn’t want to appear insensitive, he didn’t want to miss an opportunity either,so he asked... “Well, before you jump why don’t you give me a kiss?”

So she does... And it was a long, deep, passionate, lingering kiss.

After she’s finished, the biker says, “Wow! That was the best kiss I’ve ever had! That’s a real talent you are wasting. You could be famous. Why in the world would you want to commit suicide?”

“My parents don’t like me dressing up like a girl........”.
