A former Bangor Area High School teacher who had sex with a 17-year-old student was sent to prison for five months Friday by a Northampton County judge who said he expected her to be unhappy with his sentence.
But then Rachel L. Farrell, 26, surprised Judge Emil Giordano, who had just heard her defense attorney arguing for probation.

Hard to tell by the profile picture at the site, but I think I’d giver probation.
Bangor? I hardly knew her.
Bangor? I hardly knew her.
Lol, flames inbound no doubt...
not one tiny bit guilty
Just as long as Cesar Millan never gets busted for sex with his students.
I think she’s guilty, but should be made to serve out her sentence in my spare room.
It is a natural thing for women and men to be sexually attracted to each other. The man's age (17) might make him a "minor" in our mother hen society but for the purposes of nature, anybody who reaches puberty is biologically a man or a woman and no amount of legislation will change that fact.
Now I'm not saying a sexual relationship between a teacher and student should be allowed. Definitely the teacher should have been fired and the student expelled. But prison? That is ludicrous. Already we have one out of every 100 citizens imprisoned. We don't need to be locking up schoolteachers for having sexual relations with students (unless of course, rape or assault was involved).
Whatever one's opinion of good looking female teachers bedding her teenage students (such as the many jokes here) it does happen to be the goal of a parent looking to educators with a certain amount of trust.
Today, that is no where evident less than in schools across America.
Good humored jokes aside, this type of predatory behavior isn't humorous when it is a 55 to 60 year old male teacher with his 15 year old female student nor a 47 year old male or female teacher with a young student teen of the same sex.
This kind of thing is no longer a rarity, it's commonplace.
Lastly, I expect the teachers to find other places to go on the hunt for sexual stimulation than their own classrooms. If this were my daughter behaving this way with her male students, I certainly would be ashamed and I also would inquire as to why she was unable to find suitable males of her own age with whom to "explore" her sexuality.
This is the VERY WORST type of excerpting. AOL does it all the time. If AOL is you model you are doing wonderfully. But I don’t go into their content very often. I abhore being toyed with. I don’t ask to know everything about a story; I just ask to have a decent idea of what I’m getting into. You suck at that as does AOL.
Don’t hold back; tell us how you really feel...
Why? Do you want to fulfill your sex slave fantasy?
“We don’t need to be locking up schoolteachers for having sexual relations with students (unless of course, rape or assault was involved).”
Cops, Special Victims Investigators, common detectives, judges, prosecutors, defense lawyers, jail personnel, ParolePersons, ad nauseam - ALL disagree with your mean spirited post.
Why do you want to pull their snouts out of the government trough?
Just because G*d said a male was responsible for his own sins at age 13 means nothing in a “Post Modern, Post Structuralist collective such as present day America.
Calling people names over the internet? Like, OMG! Like amazin’. Like literally.
