Questions:
Should this be a crime since the student is 18 years old? Should it be a felony or misdemeanor? Should it be used as a deterrent? Should she get time? Should she simply be fired, etc.
Answer: No, No, No, No!!!!
What was the Texas State Legislature thinking of when this Bill, and now Law came before the Texas State House and Senate? They obviously didn't take the national adult age Law (restriction) for becoming a consenting adult into full account. It seems to me that we the people have now crossed into a new debate, with bureaucrats that will rock the very core of this countries values in favor of such a mockery of our legal system.
You cannot make laws that will violate others in any way shape or form. This is one of many not so good examples that has made our laws subjective rather than objective. This is absolutely down right cruel and unusual to say the least, it undermines the Dignity of our Freedoms. If allowed by grand jury you will set off a fury and war right within this country. The People will not stand for this on the right. As for the People on the left it will become as worse as the ACLU attacking our Spiritual Freedoms. Now that Pandora's box is open on this issue the Texas State legislature that ratified this law into law now have to reap what they have sown by sending absolutely innocent people to prison in such a case as this case with, Amy McElhenney of Hebron Texas.

I don't think this young teacher should be charged at all. The student is eighteen years old and the teacher is not much older. Why ruin her life? If they had met at a club nobody would be saying anything about the age difference. Some of our laws are ridiculous. I was told that there is a law that was written way back that it is illegal to go barefoot. Anyway, she is too young to ruin her life. If the student were sixteen or younger then yes by all means prosecute but not at eighteen.
