Riverside, N.J., Feb. 21, 2005 Sources say the 14-year-old boy having an affair with a teacher is cooperating with police, but is reluctant to divulge details for fear of getting her in more trouble. Action News has been told the boy is in love with the teacher, who is ten years older, and that the two even talked of marriage.
Gail Nottie/STORE OWNER: "I can't understand it, I can't see what a women would see in a child."
People are still in shock about the arrest Friday of a substitute teacher at Riverside High School for allegedly having an affair with a fourteen-year-old student.
Twenty-four-year-old Angela Stellwag, the daughter of Delran Mayor Joseph Stellwag, has been charged with sexual assault. Police say the two met in 2003 at Beverly City school when he was an eighth grader, and Stellwag was a substitute. Students there say there was lots of talk.
Mychalynn Bryant/STUDENT: "He would always stay after school with her and like people just started getting suspicious."
Gabrielle Hensley/Student: "One time I was at Sub Shack and I seen them up there, and they were making out in the car, and 'Wow'."
Efforts to contact Stellwag and her attorney were unsuccessful authorities have seized e-mails and love notes between the teacher and teen as evidence.
Attorney Mike Riley represent the boy and his family and says the fourteen-year-old is having a difficult time.
Mike Riley/VICTIM'S ATTORNEY: "The young man is not in a position where he has the legal capacity to give legal consent.... The shock of this relationship being exposed, the intense news interest in the relationship, the fact that he obviously has feelings for this young lady. It's a very distressing and disturbing situation he finds himself in."
At the deli down the street from Riverside High, people are shaking their heads.
Sal Notte/STORE OWNER: "Now whether she's guilty or not, I don't want to judge anybody, but it's just a horrible thing that happened."
I cannot say that it is suprising, given that the media has done nothing but glorify the Lehornyeau crapola. Next thing you know, they'll be breathlessly covering the bridal shower.
Sounds like she was a sex education teacher.
Well, I think it is safe to assume the young boy's name is not Muhammad. That jerk married a woman 15 years older than him. Hope that tells you what Islam is all about.
It's okay. Really.
Sadly, these types of incidents will only increase in instance largely because so many males treat it as a macho issue and make ridiculous statements like "where were these teachers when I was in school". This type of idiotic statement is actually enabling to a pedophile, and I can not imagine that a father would be making these type of remarks if it were his daughter. What it boils down to male or female teacher is an abuse of authority and power and preying on children.
Are you a christian? You would want standards of morality for both your children. If you aren't, well forget about what I just said.
I agree with you.
I agree with you.
New cases reported almost weekly.
What the hell is going on?
(Runs for cover. LOL.)
LOL! this wouldn't be an issue since most of my clients homeschool.
To save everyone the trouble of posting, I will instead post a summary of typical posts on this subject to date:
"Wow, man, she's hot! Why didn't I have a teacher like that in eighth grade?"
"If the teacher was a man and the student a girl, you hypocrites would all form a lynch mob!"
"Lucky kid! He'll be the king of the schoolyard! If that were me they'd have to sandblast the smile off my face!"
"I can't believe you, treating this like some sort of joke! This is child molestation, people! That poor boy's ruined, he'll be scarred for life!"
"This is why I homeschool my children."
"This is what you get with ACLU-Marxist teachers unions and their sex education. Bet she voted for Kerry."
"Hey, you live down there. You got her phone number?"
Isn't the second pic from a different case in Pennsylvania? (It's getting difficult to keep track of 'em all!)
When I hear many of these guys making these idiotic remarks it reminds me of guys who would say of rape victims that "she liked it" or "she was asking for it" - they do not get it, and sadly may never get it until it happens within their own family.
