BHS teacher charged with sexual exploitation (Vermont)

BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A Burlington High School teacher is due in court Monday afternoon on charges of sexually exploiting a minor.

School officials say Giovanna Yaranga, a Spanish teacher at BHS for 15 years, has been placed on administrative leave after allegations she had an inappropriate relationship with a student. Sources tell Channel 3 News Yaranga had sex with a 17-year-old male student. Though 17 is above the legal age of consent, the exploitation statute prohibits people in authority positions from having sexual relations with people under their guidance. It's a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

Statement from Jeanne Collins, Burlington Superintendent:

"This deeply upsetting news affects our entire community. Please be assured that the safety of our students is the District's priority. The District had no evidence of physical improprieties or sexual misconduct by Ms. Yaranga. The faculty, staff and administration are well aware of their obligations as mandatory reporters of child abuse and have and will continue to fully comply with those requirements. Policy and procedures are in place to address personnel behaviors of concern, and hiring procedures include criminal background checks, abuse registry checks and reference checks. To reiterate, the District will do nothing that it believes will compromise the legal process underway or the safety and well-being of Burlington students."

I’m leaning toward guilty, but it might just be a bad picture, will wait to see from a different angle before I reach my final verdict.

My guess is she transitioned from not guilty to guilty about 5, maybe 10 years ago.

Looks pretty good for a 44 year old who’s not a model, actress or trophy wife. Good bone structure and proportions. Knockout with the right makeup and clothes.

Now we need a look at the young man. And we need to hear the court case when they can ask the boy if he felt exploited, or if possibly he was the exploiter.

RBing has it narrowed down to the non-porn start Giovanna Yaranga.

But I guarantee you, I learned Espanol in the bars of Juarez (back before it became a war zone) pretty quick to talk with some very hot latinas, so perhaps that should be the strategy.

Hmmmm ... above the legal age of consent, the exploitation statute prohibits people in authority positions from having sexual relations with people under their guidance. It's a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

If this was a federal law in the 1990s ... Are interns 'under guidance'?

And yet ... she's still a pervert, and still abusing her position of authority.

And they were found in the back seat of a car. Said they needed more leg room. Obviously a tutorial. No mention of status of their clothing.

Yeah, but it’s a much longer drive now (and no walking home if you get too carried away).

By the way, check out post 21 (if you haven’t already) and I’ll give you a chance to amend and revise your remarks before they go into the final version of the Congressional Record.

Back later - need to deal with kids and garbage day (not necessarily in that order).

Vermont courts have previously taken a unique position on pedophilia, releasing prisoners early, or even commuting sentences with the excuse that since Vermont doesn’t offer sex offender counseling in prison, it was better to release the offenders.

Of course, that was male, hetero-sexual sex offenders.

A quick search shows several colleges in the Burlington area. She wouldn’t have happy with a lad just few years older? She chose poorly.

"Yaranga also said they were in the back seat because they needed more leg room" LOL!

I don't understand why incidents of female teachers offering a little hands-on training to boys even gets reported. When a male teacher violates a student, that's a different story and can indeed have lasting effects. But this notion that boys are affected the same way girls are is BULLSH*T. Yes we ARE different. YES, boys think of it as a conquest, or a 'win'. Okay, punish the teacher for acting outside the scope of her duties, but bringing the boy into it is nonsense. Let him walk away with the win.

"walk away..with the win"

You are totally correct, but it is p.c. for everyone, libs and conservatives, to state that boys are ruined forever. The real situation, 99% of the time, is that the boy involved is sad because teacher got fired, and his friends are upset because they didn't get in on the action. It might be un-p.c., and unpalatable to say that, but it's the truth. The facts are at that age, girls do it because they love teacher, while boys do it...well..because they're horny, little hounddogs. Sorry if that offends anyone.

Can you imagine a teenage boy having to testify as to what she did to him . . . and then to try to keep a straight face . . . without giggling.

He'll be a celebrity at every class reunion . . . "Tell us again . . . then what did she do? Really? . . . "
