If the sexes would have been reversed, different story

If the victims would have been females and the sexual predator had been a male teacher, the teacher would be under the prison today. Double standards at its best. She doesnt even have to register as a sex offender. Nice lawyer for her, joke for the district attorney.

Only in North Carolina

2 cases in the last year all end with slap on the wrist.

Equal justice?

No doubt the sentence would have included jail time for a male teacher.

We did hear about it months

We did hear about it months ago!

WHAT?

Why didn't we hear about this months ago? As the parent of a teen, I find this repulsive.

Widespread full court media coverage - July 31, 2012

It just took forever for this case to make its way through the justice system. This is repulsive and inexcusable for a female teacher not to be held to the same punishment as males who do similar. This case was unique in that there was more than one victim and multiple incidences. Also her crimes involved the perp going to the student homes to commit them. Details in open court would be embarrassing to the school system and those still employed who had knowledge.....

'Details in open court would

'Details in open court would be embarrassing to the school system and those still employed who had knowledge', so what? So, if we don't talk about something it will go away? If we don't explain exactly what happened in court, with all of the participators under oath in open court it will be embarrassing? It sure will be! And it absolutely should be. The law should so state this. If it doesn't, it should be re-written. This re-written law should include, if not already there, that all perpetrators, regardless of sex, would receive full punishment.
