There will be fewer people talking about how wrong this woman was than there were lining up to beat up Joey Spellings for what he did.

I'm not saying that Joey wasn't an idiot for what he did, but when a woman takes advantage of a minor it's looked as not as big a deal as when a man does it.
Somehow that doesn't seem fair to me.

if u thinks its any different for a man or a woman to take advantage of a teenage child then u have lost ur everloving or woman should be punished the same way.....i just dont see how u could possible say it is not looked upon the same way because she is female....that is a very sexist remark and very narrow minded...she will definitely get what is coming to her.

The only part that is sad about this-How the child is affected by it? No parent want an adult of any age to pray on their child, but it seems like we are seeing much more of it now in our community. When you expected to hear about things of this nature in larger cities; however, it is more common in smaller town. I am sorry for the child this woman raped....She took something he will never regain. This should be a federal case instead of a state case...It looks like she did the same thing joey did-Mental hospital....that is a joke because she was not sick when she raped that child neither was joey....THIS IS HOW PEOPLE PLAY THE SYSTEM IN ORDER FOR A LESSER SENTENCE!

^ omg you make it sound like she tied him up and held him down he wanted to have sex with her. Age and authority is the only reason this is even being talked about.

When I was his age "17 and 18" I would have cut her and it would'nt bother me not one bit.It does not bother a 18 yr old boy like it would an 18 girl.TRUST ME he'll be ok.

HELL NO, its disgusting but its over and done with she is going to jail and she deserves to but not because she "raped" him because thats not true she deserves to go to jail because she had sex with him and ruined her family's lives.

It was not solely one persons fault , yes he was 17 and she was an adult. That was a mistake on both of thems part but alot of the news casts are wrong ... The age is the only reason it was considered rape. It was not all the kids fault i mean seriously what 17 or 18 year old kid doesnt just want sex. Its a non stop thought. And it was offered to him and he accepted it not thinking about what he was doing and they both hurt alot of people by doing so but they made a mistake and they are human. Im sure they both feel horrible about this but its not like it hasnt happened before with other student and teacher relations. This is just one that ppl got to hear and like to talk on the news about the gossip they here flying around the high school and the town that very few people know the truth about...
