Actually, I have no problems with that sentence.  Sexual abusers ruin so many lives.

 

Too bad more people don't seem to realize that and to me, a sexual predator is just as bad, if not worse than a murderer.

 

 


And I have to wonder if this had been a MAN and young teenage girls, would anyone have sympathy of any kind for him, or think he should get a shorter sentence?  It is what it is... it doesn't matter if it's a woman doing it.

There's no need to drag the D situation into this. Give it a rest.

 

I would like to know how this woman "abused" teenage boys....that would be consential, I would think.

 

 



 

Excuse me?  Who is dragging the D situation into this?  YOU ARE.   I don't need to rest anything.

 

Sexual abusers and predators are the topic.  Minors are a protected class.   The adult is supposed to behave like an adult, not a teenager. 

 

That is why there is statutory r*pe laws in this country.

So she doesn't have a set number of years?  Or was the 30 really handed down but she could get out sooner by the board's decision?

I'm far from being an attorney, but...somehow, someway I feel that in some capacity, the 17-yr old is @ fault for having relations w/ the woman while she's out on bail....like he's aiding a criminal on some level. Thoughts?

It doesn't seem like it. The video said the sentences are consecutive and she can serve between 2 and 30 years and that decision is up to the parole board. 

 

ETA around 2:50 on the video.

Re: Teacher sentenced to 30 years for involvement with teenaged male students

  No one here will agree with me, but I think it IS different when it's a woman.

  I've actually talked about this with my husband....he said it's the same thing but I don't agree....it is different to me. If you read comments under this type of article, a lot of men if not most say, "He got lucky."

 

 This is 16 and 17-year-olds we are talking about. A woman can't force her attention on a teenage boy the way a grown man can.

 

  Most people don't see it that way though but so what else is new.

I watched last year when mary Kay and her husband were interviewed and he seemed more mature than her. I don't think he wants his children to have the family life he had that led him to do that.

How does a woman force herself on a 17-year-old boy, though?

Re: Teacher sentenced to 30 years for involvement with teenaged male students

There are differences between female and male sex offenders.  Surprisingly female sex offenders outnumber male offenders in various characteristics; but female offenders are more like to be using drugs, have physical and/or mental challenges and be from homes were violence is ongoing.

 

The Journal of Child Sex Abuse addresses the differences and also the similarities.

 

Nobody is giving a pass to female offenders at all - but the dynamics of female offenders are not always the same as with male offenders.
