"Let the FR jury weigh in"

Better weigh in quickly. Based on the photo, that scale's not going to hold out very long.

Nah, she’s guilty. If she dropped 20 pounds, then she could appeal.

Guilty. She’s a middle school teacher; her students are 12-13 years old. I always thought hot-to-trot teachers ought to wait at least until the kids have pubic hair before they seduce them. /s

I suppose she did it because she was paranoid that Bain Capital was going to take away her public sector job and benefits before she could have a child. Have a heart, give her a union management job.

Usually, I shake my head. The perp could get all the sex she needs on the market; perhaps get paid for it as a bonus.

In this case, she might be rejected in those venues.

In either case: they don't want to do the work, and take the risks; to snag an age appropriate man.

So they cheat. This is a way to exercise power of men to be.

No mercy. Enough of these cases.

Nothing to do with Bain Capital. Perhaps lack of State provided birth control?

Well, pubic hair or not, these are still children, unless the teacher was going after some 6 foot 6, 250-pounders who flunked four times. Teachers who debauch children need to disappear for a very long time. I have a 12- year- old son, so I have some interest in what goes on in school. He is a good and innocent kid, and I want him to stay that way as long as possible.

Remember when the 3 Rs were “Reading’, ‘Riting and ‘Rithmatic”? Now it’s “Rapin’, Reefin’ and Rum”.

Police said Appleton often drank and smoked with them.

If I were the police, I wouldn't tell a reporter that I often drank and smoked weed with a suspect.
