A teacher was sentenced to one effective year for each of the students she slept with in Texas, under laws criminalising student-teacher sexual encounters with student age being irrelevant. Fox news has the story here and the link at the end has further comments from one of the witnesses in the case. The debate in the comments is interesting, but it’s sad that because one of the five teens didn’t consider himself a victim, that there was the overall believe that every kid would feel exactly the same way with every single teacher-student case. In that scenario educators have an infinite supply of kids to prey upon for as long as they stay in the job. Like England, the law has been applied; teachers that sleep with their students go to jail, and this American teacher can consider herself lucky to have had a lenient sentence in that State.
