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.

Daddy, why is mommy in jail?
On the available evidence, not guilty.
Pre-approved for a Clinton post-POTUS pardon!
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.
mommy should be in jail for a good long time
I will wait until more evidence to make a decision. a call to the commissioner has been placed.
That’s a man!
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.
She’d be kind of cute were it not for the 5 o’clock shadow....

|Woo hoo!! And the first 27% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
Private lessons gone wild!
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 Ginnettis vehicle, according to the criminal complaint.
She made calculus “exciting” apparently....
they left a coney island white fish in the car.....for that she must be guilty.
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.
All of the pics of this broad available, yet NONE of that mall murderer?
I think the jury needs to review the video evidence. On the basis of the photo, she may very well be guilty.
Good point. . .wonder why?
Don’t want to enrage people against the Amish, perhaps?
Was the mall murderer a minority?
I was thinking the same. She has the facial features of a man.
The really sad thing is, five years ago this was the male shop teacher... LMAO (just kidding)
Ouch. She looks like she’s switched teams at one point.
The propagandist “news” tends to do this.
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.
Ginnetti is a Pennsylvania mob family name from the Northeast.
A liberal wet dream; half latino/half-black
“Thats a man!”
I was thinking the same thing. Looks like a Tranny.
He’s not to smart if he’d kept his mouth shut he’d probably still be get’n it.
After identifying him by name, that is the only rational explanation.
"Equal protection," and all that... < /sarc >
Just wait a year or 2-it’s just as hard.
Yup, strictly by the numbers and she new all the angles.
That prosecutor should be in prison with that cop!!
..stripes look good on her
“Teachers should not be allowed to be alone with a student, unless in plain view.”
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.
She had sex with a 17 year old. Big deal. Meanwhile mothers kill their unborn children, and it’s sanctioned by the state....
Hmm, might be not guilty. Any of her in a bikini ?
That is one manly looking woman.
She probably is hoping for a hung jury.
