It's about time someone had the balls to send a dumb woman like this to prison. 10 yrs is a little light, but I think that she will be a good jail slut for the other inmates. She's stupid and pathetic. That's why she's going away for 10 yrs.

She should have known better. When she came up with the old "I was abused as a child" excuse I thought surely they wouldn't buy it. She got what she deserved.

She didn't get off by claiming she had been abused when she was younger! She got what she deserved.

You really have to know all of the people involved. I mean- yes, I think she should serve time because she did have a relationship with a student and she was a teacher. But his family was just a weird as she was. His father had been a lawyer nand disbarred years ago for drug charges. I see that it could have been possible that the boy forced her to go because he probably wanted to get away and he saw that as his way out. Not saying she was right but because of past teachers in the Monroe County school system alone getting away with having relations with students -in her mind she probably thought she would get away with it as did others before her. If they would have made others serve time before this might not have ever happened.
Her family was very weird but I had not ever heard that she herself had been abused. But her father has since divorced her mother to continue an affair with one of her mothers best friends who could actually be his daughter and they have since had a child.

Ok I don't see why that is any of anyones business to strew over the internet unless she or her dad, or the new wife decides to put that on there. Regardless of what kelly did, and yea he had a hard life, but if he did force her, she could have went through town driving erratically, she could have layed on the horn. I think it was a plan they had together. It was just as much her as it was him. Just my opinion.

It all starts at home...if Kelly would have been in a shape to take care of his son and raise him himself in a stable homethis may have never occured. We all have skeleton's in our closet but goodness girl...he was in a position that he was suppose to help people! Yes, he is gone and can't stand up for himself but you can't just sweep that crap under the rug - CHANGE IT! If we keep letting our children think it is all ok for what the people are doing them they will turn just the same. And yes it was just as much her, she was an adult but my point is people act how they see others act. She wasn't the first one in the school system to have a fling with a student she is just the only one that did it with a Carter and run off to Mexico!

Now that I will give you, he had problems, they both did (father and son) I was around them quite a bit for a while, and even after he was removed and lived with other relatives, there were still some questions about his behavior and what not. I agree parents should set better examples than they do, but I've seen some pretty horrible things in my lifetime by mother and loved-ones, but I'm not going to go hijack anyone or run off to Mexico. The thing is, I was saying about putting the stuff about her dad and sister or whoever. She was an adult, she made her own decisions, and I still think they planned it together. I just hope that now he is adopted and living under a new name, his new family gets him the help that he needs.

As for the father , I dont think nobody has a right to talk about stuff they dont know ,,, As I work with the one who had the affair with Angelas dad, There was very many problems in that household that nobody knows... They are now married and very happy and I believe it is time for everyone to leave it alone... The gossip can come from both sides but until you live their lives and dont see all the story, You are spreading wrong info... By the way that is not his daughter ,, she is his wife....

I think she got what was coming to her. In the past people have been been simply moved around and actually even to higher paying jobs in the school system when they were caught doing something wrong. This has gone on for years. It depends on who you are and who you know as to wether you even get punished or not. Some have been removed from the system for doing just a fraction of what others have done for years. It's never been fair. She was no longer in the school system but I figure it was because they couldn't hide this one. There is no excuse for what she done and it would be stupid to think he could have made her do all that. She is a well educated adult. I am sure could have figured a way out.As for her having a bad childhood that is sad but face it everyone has had tuff times that doesn't mean you have a right to do whatever you want. I hate it when people use that for an excuse. Everything didn't go my way as a child either but I think that only makes me want to make life better for me and others now.

Alot of stuff on here is old news but to some, it is not. So if we want to comment, it is our decision to do so. She is still in prison, so I consider to an open subject. What she did is still an issue going on in the schools, we need to be concerned.
