UK Daily Mail ^ | February 17, 2012 | Paul Thompson and Rachel Quigley

An elementary school teacher has been jailed for 40 years for having sex with a 14-year-old student. Shannon Alicia Schmieder, 39, was told she will have to serve 20 years - by far the toughest sentence ever handed out by a U.S. court to an educator accused of underage sex.

OK, that headline and that first sentence is just another example of how the Brits and the Yanks don’t speak the same language.

Either that, or a million Brits are going “WTF”?? as we are.

We're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little more now if we can and the rest next quarter.

She had to find someone young and short enough to reach her sagging boobs.

But here when Newt got involved with his teacher just a year or two older the MSM has made it his fault: his character weakness.

Notice he says nothing bad about the mother of his children even if she was a child predator.

Actually, she’s not unattractive (pic at the story). Doesn’t excuse what she did, of course.

BTW, you wanna see a real howler...go to the link and scroll down to the mugshots of Marie L Fisher or Deborah Cox. Yiiiikes!!!

I find the fact that she was a friend to the mother and was involved with their family since he was a baby to be especially disturbing. Pretty sick stuff to sleep with him after all that.

From the Article: “The 39-year-old knew the boy since he was born and was at one stage like a mother-figure to him, according to his family.”

That right there is downright creepy.

Some idiot from London who calls herself “Julia” thinks fundamentalist religion is behind that sentence. The same language? We don’t even inhabit the same UNIVERSE!

Vinny Gambini: And?

Lisa: Well I hate to bring it up because I know you've got enough pressure on you already. But, we agreed to get married as soon as you won your first case.
Meanwhile, TEN YEARS LATER, my niece, the daughter of my sister is getting married.
My biological clock is [taps her foot] TICKING LIKE THIS and the way this case is going, I ain't never getting married.

Vinny Gambini: Lisa, I don't need this. I swear to God, I do not need this right now, okay? I've got a judge that's just aching to throw me in jail.
An idiot who wants to fight me for two hundred dollars. Slaughtered pigs. Giant loud whistles. I ain't slept in five days.
I got no money, a dress code problem, AND a little murder case which, in the balance, holds the lives of two innocent kids.
Not to mention your [taps his foot] BIOLOGICAL CLOCK - my career, your life, our marriage, and let me see, what else can we pile on?
Is there any more $HIT we can pile on to the top of the outcome of this case? Is it possible?

This is very good news. Adults that prey on the young are disturbed, and apparently resistant to change.

It took some scrutiny to discover this was speaking of Georgia. Coweta County (Newnan, GA) is southwest of Atlanta, about halfway between Atlanta and the state border.

Is this a Ratly area? First thing that struck me when I Googled up the website is that they have “burning restrictions.” I could understand in a valley, but on the plains of Georgia?

Anyhow, obviously the article does not spell out just what the woman did, which would make it unsuitable for family reading but also might clarify how badly this really ended up hurting the lad. Did she forcibly grope the boy or did she merely expose herself and tempt a confused, horny adolescent to come on to her. He could much more easily deal with the latter, and could get his head on straight by the time he reaches full adulthood. Might even brag about it a time or two with buddies, though I don’t personally cheer that kind of thing on.

This read like she will have to be in prison for twenty years, then will go on twenty years more probation. By that time she’ll be an elderly person indeed, and probably a pathetic welfare case instead of a teacher or anything else gainful.

Which makes it possible that the punishment will be cut as “excessive.” Still, out in half a year? It takes longer than that to bubble something up to the state supremes let alone the USSC.

What would the penalty have been if she had killed him?

Judging by the ongoing high-profile "lacrosse" trial, plead guilty to manslaughter and serve 18 months.

The trouble with emotional Draconian sentences is that there can't be proportional punishment.

Meanwhile, a woman in Philly gets 4 to 8 years for deliberately running down six people, killing one, while in a drunken rage.

The first woman listed at the bottom of the article, was only sentenced to 4 months. In other cases the women serve no jail time, just probation. Sometimes they serve a couple years.

We’ll see I guess.

Oh definitely the London Daily Mail gets away with more editorializing in its headlines. And it has higher moral standards than the NYT — but then again any newspaper does, including toilet paper

There has been a pleasant uptick in hot teachers having sex with their students. Where were these women when I was at Walter Reed Middle School? How come kids now get Debra LaFave and I got Mrs. Wolk, who literally had a hygiene problem? I love the idiots who complain about the double standard and say we should punish these female teachers the same as we would male teachers. If the male gym coach has sex with the fifteen-year-old girl, she will be mentally and emotionally scarred for life. The only damage to a fifteen-year-old boy who nails the music teacher after class is carpal tunnel from getting high-fived by his buddies. Just like my grandfather used to say, “If you can beat off to it afterward, it’s not a crime.” This is another misguided attempt to treat the genders as if there are no differences. Little Billy who bangs the female teacher is gonna be all right. Little Suzie will end up working the pole at Olympic Gardens and won’t be going by the name Suzie.

Sounds a bit like Jerry Sandusky, who was doing his best to act like a father-figure to his victims.
