ower Moreland High School teacher had sex with student, DA says
WPVI ^ | January 24, 2014 | staff

LOWER MORELAND, Pa. - January 24, 2014 (WPVI) -- A high school teacher in Montgomery County has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student. Erica Ann Ginnetti, 33, an advanced math teacher at Lower Moreland High School, is charged with 13 counts including Institutional Sexual Assault, Corruption of Minors, and Disseminating Obscene Materials to a Minor.

Students say the rumors have been circulating for a while that Ginnetti, a married mother, had an intimate relationship with a 17-year-old male student. "The fact that she had kids and she was a teacher and he was student, that's what's shocking," said Patrick Giordano, student.

Police began their investigation ten days ago, after receiving a tip about other students seeing incriminating evidence on the victim's cell phone. Police say the evidence, including photos, video and text messages, led them to Ginnetti, who admitted to having a relationship with the student starting last Spring.

Investigators say Ginnetti first approached the male student at the school's senior prom last May, asking him if he would come work out at her gym. They say the student responded with a text message a few days later and the two began communicating on a daily basis.

Prosecutors say over the next several months, Ginnetti sent the student sexual text messages and sexually explicit photos and videos of herself, and on one occasion had sex with him. Investigators said in July 2013 the pair met at coffee shop in Northeast Philadelphia, Ginnetti drove the student to an industrial park near the Lower Moreland-Philadelphia border, had sex with him, then drove him back to the coffee shop and asked him not to tell anyone.

These cases could be avoided if there were still rules. Teachers should not be allowed to be alone with a student, unless in plain view.

I wonder how much of this goes on and the people involved are smart enough to keep it to themselves and not keep incriminating evidence.

Teacher and married mother of three 'had sex with student, 17, and sent him racy text messages and X-rated videos'

Police said they found several texts the lovers had exchanged discussing their July outing and one mentioning ‘a used condom that had been left in Ginnetti’s vehicle,’ according to the criminal complaint.

Eeeeewwwww.

Where is Jeff Anderson when a student needs him? Oh, wait. It is just a public school teacher. Not to worry. The schools do not have enough money to bother to have a law suit. And, besides that, they are too independent from one another. It’s too hard to get lots of money from schools. Let’s go back to abuse cases from 30-40 years ago, and hit the RC dioceses once more. It is easier that way as the fruit is all in large clumps - easy picking.

I think the jury needs to review the video evidence. On the basis of the photo, she may very well be guilty.

Just flushed her entire life down the drain for a few moments of sexual satisfaction.

Stupid...but I guess this is what the past 30 or so years of hyper-sexualization in our society has wrought.

They saw each other off campus apparently.

FWIW, back in my teaching days, there was a case where someone was accused of bad behavior, probably unfairly. After that, that rule was put in place....no contact with students alone, no meetings outside of school alone. It stopped all of the allegations, as just being alone broke that rule.

I do think that a big part of the problem is that teachers have become mentors who are supposed to become aware of students' personal lives. It doesn't help students or teachers focus on learning. I'm a dinosaur with this view, I know, but as a teacher I wanted to teach. If I wanted to solve their problems, I would've been a guidance counselor.
