A Stamford High School teacher accused of threatening to fail an 18-year-old student if he did not have sex with her and providing him and a friend with marijuana, turned herself over to police early Thursday.

Danielle Watkins, 32, of Fort Point St., Norwalk, was charged with two counts of sexual assault, two counts of sale of marijuana and one count of risk of injury to a minor

...

A day after the student reported the allegations, police executed a search warrant of Watkins's car during a motor vehicle stop in Norwalk. During the stop, police said Watkins tried to hide her cellphone under the passenger seat of the car and she became verbally combative after marijuana was discovered in the vehicle. At the time, she was charged with interfering with a search warrant and possession of marijuana...

Police seized the car for a forensic examination, and a search of her phone revealed more than 2,000 text messages, naked pictures of herself and hundreds of calls between her and the student,

Plenty not guilty enough for a teenage boy, I’d say.

Not guilty?

In all fairness, it is a mugshot. A smile will light up all those around you. It seems she has been lit up quite a few times.

In before the “you’re all sick joking about pedophilia” crowd.

I wonder why the “student” turned her in?

I mean, what stopped working for him in the relationship?

By Texas standards, she’s a “6”. By Yankee standards, she’s an “8.5”.

Why are there so many female pedophiles in the school system all of a sudden? This woman would certainly have no trouble hooking up with a legal age male every day if she wanted.

“By Texas standards, she’s a “6”. By Yankee standards, she’s an “8.5”.”

Keep in mind that mug shots don’t always bring out the best in people’s pictures. We do take that into consideration here when assessing guilt. In her case, she clearly has potential, and shows some serious bangers in this photo:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2696140/Married-teacher-32-sex-car-male-student-18-threatened-fail-ended-affair.html

So we look for real turn-offs, if we don’t see them, we usually defer to NOT GUILTY, as the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard is not achieved.

Maybe not. Maybe he had principles and integrity. It does happen, you know. Maybe he had a girlfriend, considering that the teacher was hot enough for him to risk jail. Maybe he was creeped out by a teacher demanding sex.

Guilty as charged. And will be sentenced to the next 20 plus years in a rubber room where she will collect her full pay and not have to bother to teach.

Yea, I was thinking that too. Just having some fun with this one. He’s 18, so probably done with high school...he wants to move on and use his “experience” elsewhere, and she probably won’t let go.

Serves her right - she has to let go, high schools are a target-rich environment, no reason to try to hang on like that.

The affair was revealed when the teen told a school counselor about their relationship in June. The counselor then alerted the Department of Children and Families and the Board of Education.

Probably because men have been emasculated culturally, and aren’t making themselves available to these creeps. Also, school teachers in general can be very infantile, never dealing with the realities most working people face...

Oh well.

Another such story next week.

Montana has lots of porkers.

The streets of places like Bozeman are filled with extraordinarily beautiful women but mostly they are the trophy wives the arriviste rich, with Jags, Porches, Land Rovers and Humvees, great big diamonds and an "executive home" on the mountain they own.

They tend to be crazy as a pet coon.

“Plenty not guilty enough for a teenage boy, I’d say.”

Indeed. And just where exactly where were all of these nympho schoolmarms when I was a high school tyke, anyway? Most of my female teachers were of the battleaxe cruiser class, and the few babes didn’t seem to have a need for sex with little boys.

And speaking of pussies, any high school boy that would turn a teacher in after such extracurricular instruction deserves nothing good in the future.

It’s about control.

Some of these gals have had very bad experiences with men their own age .. and then they resort to this horrible way of “getting their needs met” .. which is a lot of hooey!!!

She wouldn't have offered. My guess is the student is a buff, handsome athlete who could have his pick of the cheerleaders

Stamford school demographics have them being 32% white.

These are the schools where new teachers with no seniority are sent. The better schools get the more senior (battleaxe cruiser) teachers.

Meh...a one bagger but, a few drinks, low lighting and I’d hit that.

Fun for better grades? Why not.

Curious: the boy is 18. How is it she is being charged with “risk of injury to a minor”?

You should’ve negotiated for an A+ and made her feel as if she got the long end of the stick.

Update: Danielle Watkins was re-arrested on another felony of threatening one of her victims at a Dunkin Donuts. She said the victim destroyed her life and now she will destroy him and his buddy.

She was out on bail awaiting sentencing for the original offenses. Now she's racked up another felony for herself.
