HOUSTON - A fired Spring Branch ISD teacher accused of having sex with a student is out of jail but must wear an ankle monitoring bracelet.
The judge also ordered Kathryn Camille Murray, 28, to stay away from the alleged victim.
According to court documents, a faculty member told administrators at Memorial Middle School that Murray was having an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old male student.

Poor Sally’s gonna be writing for some blog if she keeps up tilting at the sacred windmills.
Based on video evidence? GUILTY.
The man faces 20 years and the woman gets an ankle bracelet.
Does anyone really think women want equality?
This is happening over and over and no one condones it, but sentences should be handed out and equal.
The girls who flaunt themselves in front of the teachers are considered to be violated, while the boys are looked upon as lucky.
In todays morality Girls are just as open about sex as boys, why should they be considered violated when they probably started the whole thing themselves.In neither of these cases is consent a problem. They consented. The punishment for the adult should be the same.
If this had been a priest.... Male priest, of course. Given there are 3 million teachers in the USA, and that this sort of thing is not uncommon—and I speak as a former local rep of a teachers union—just do the arithmetic. One difference is that once upon a time the teacher would simply have resigned and disappeared, while her file got purged, with the understanding that if she applied for work elsewhere that they would say only that she had worked there. That was the working model. Of course, there were many false charges made, and by and large the DA didnt want to waste time and money on such matters. But now we have a war on pedophiles —except in places like SF where the crime is common practice.
This is Sally, the reporter. This is NOT the perp.
That article was horribly written. It sounds like it’s going to compare the reaction to this crime with the reaction to one involving a male teacher, but then it only discusses this one. It also primarily focuses on the reaction of the students, with only a quick mention of the reaction of one parent, and no mention of the treatment in the courts, which is the real issue.
Me too ... I'm soooo easy. ;)
What a stupid woman. She ruined her life and profession for an adolescent. I’m just glad she won’t be in a classroom teaching anymore. Like most people, I doubt that the boy will be scarred for life and feel ‘violated’.
Reminds me of a Seinfeld episode. It seems like your wildest fantasy come true, but then again...
I have also taught 8th grade girls (14 yo). I can say they are a different breed than the girls I was in the 8th grade with. Probably half of them are sexually active and all of them know the effect they have on men. A large percentage of them were so well developed that with fake ID no one would doubt they were 18. I don't condone teachers that succumb but in many cases the girl is the aggressor. It's still statutory rape no matter how hot she is or how much she wants it.
how many 15 year old males wish they were molested like this
the world has gone insane
heck this was a gift
My teachers never came on to me either,which was fortunate for me because all of them were men.
Maybe, but I do not think those 15 year old boys can get pregnant.
Oh my gosh, the verdict is NOT GUILTY.
There’s something wrong with a woman who approaches young teens for sex instead of adults her own age.
Would you really have wanted a sexual predator like that to have gotten ahold of you at that age?
C’mon, fess up, you’re not a guy are you?
If you were you’d know that you would have gladly clubbed your best friend to be first in the sack with her.
Of course if you are a guy there’s one other possibility.....
NOT GUILTY, FRAMED AND ABUSED !
Hell, if she’d “molested” me when I was 15, I’d have given her an ankle bracelet myself, as long as I could have put it on her!
She needs a good spanking. Send her around to my place.
The found her because all the neighborhood bumpers had been de-chromed.
Where were these lady teachers when I was in high school? It amazes me how these young guys complain. Just sayin’...
That is one of those Great Truths you are not supposed to utter in conservative company. :)
Our criminal justice system has much more important things to worry about, but indicting banksters and politicians is a whole lot more difficult.
No, they just can find themselves in their 20's suddenly being hit with a lawsuit for 18 years of back child support.
“Would you really have wanted a sexual predator like that to have gotten ahold of you at that age?”
Is this a trick question?
Only if she turned me on to tieing her up while covered with chocolate sauce and sprinkles.
Then lets call it a gift for both sex’s.
Mama Mama Mama. . . .
I'd have been in hog heaven. . . . .
UH the answer is YES! HELL YES! ! ! !
We don’t have a “double standard” on this site, at least.
If it’s a male adult - GUILTY, regardless. If it’s a female adult, then guilty of it’s a female student. If it’s a male student, then a guilty/non-guilty judgment is made, based on the ‘quality’ of the teacher. While it is true that there is some subjectivity in our work, there certainly is no double standard.
“tracking monitors for the Not Guilty now? “
Agree, from the picture it certainly looks like she’s being railroaded by an overly aggressive prosecutor.
You would not be correct about boys doing well with sexual involvement with adults. Most people don’t think it is alright for adults to hit on boys for sex (homo or hetero).
The teacher had problems controling her sexual compulsions; she was not sacrificing her life for a relationship with a kid. It is rare that the pervert wants a love relationship with the child; they want sex with the child. They have the advantage of being an authority figure and being much more cagey than the target. Being dominant all adds to their thrill.
That is my old school district.
That is why I said "in their twenties".
Looking up the law, under the Welfare Reform Act, the minor-father's parents (ie, paternal grandparents of the baby) could be sued for child support until the father turns 18. The father would then become liable, and all the government mechanisms for extracting child support would come into play (remember, if a boy fathers a child at 15, at 18 the child is now three, and the boy still has 15 years of child support to look forward to).
If the father at 18 was unable to pay, then the assessed child support bill would accumulate with interest until such point as he had an income. If the court decides the father is willfully making himself unable to pay by not working, then the court could put him in jail.
I didn’t say I agree with it, I said it’s the law. Other countries have age of consents down as low as 12 though that’s changing. I do know they are still developing mentally and physically at that age. Some of them at 14, boys and girls, were very mature. Others not so much. Personally I think young teenagers should be discouraged from screwing anyone whether close to their age or not. I don’t know that I’d go so far as to make it illegal for them to screw others their age.
