I've known Heather for a VERY long time and all this time I did not know she did things in this nature! This is nasty and I hope she goes to prison for a VERY LONG TIME! Years and Years!!!!!!

Blind of bias and persuasion.
It doesn't matter who you are, what you look like, what race you are, if you are rich or poor -- justice does not see that. Justice is equal to all.

I can only hope the powers that be treat this sex offender as such. She does not deserve to be around children. She is selfish, cold hearted, and calculated. School counselor? Right. How many other children has she had relationships with?

I cannot condone the actions of Heather Hart but it is obvious that she is a very sick person who is a product of the environment she grew up in. Instead of locking her up and throwing away the key, a more productive measure might be to have her undergo a psychological assessment. Certainly, there must be underlying circumstances which caused her behavior. No adult in their right mine starts or continues a relations with a 14 year old child. It is very plain to see that she sick and needs help. Would you lock up a heart attack victim or a person with Diabetes or Cancer???? Think about it!!!

I would lock up a person who has sex with a child almost the same age as her own child AND right in front of her own children. She's not crazy. She knows right from wrong. She needs to be in jail not in fake Burke Co. Jail but actual prison.
A man would be in prison for at least 10 years. Heather Newman knew exactly what she was doing every single day.
Anyone who does anything to children deserves NOTHING.

Heather is out of jail and living back in her home with her children. Who is going to help her husband protect his kids from her? Why is she out? Why did the county pay her bond? Why can't someone help her husband? Doesn't anyone care? She should be in jail and if she was a man she would be in jail.
Why is the system dragging its feet?
Information please

She signed a plea agreement. She is going to get off. If she were a man they would bury him under the jail. Equal time for the same crime CSRA!

June 15.The True Citizen:
Former Burke County Middle School guidance counselor Heather Hart was arrested in April after Sardis police officers discovered her in a parked car with a 14-year-old student. Hart gave officers a fake name and age.

At the time of her arrest, GBI agents said Hart, an Evans resident who had worked at the school for about four years, allegedly began seeing the Burke County High School freshman more than a year earlier when he was only 13.

Last week, the grand jury found sufficient evidence to indict Hart on two counts of aggravated child molestation, a single count of child molestation, sexual assault against a person enrolled in a school and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer.

I still find all this hard to believe,She deserves what ever comes to her and knowing wayyy back in the day everybody that hung out with her loved her cause she was such an easy person to get along with.Not sure what happened over the years but it def has nothing to do with the way she was raised or the way she lives.The chick was always a spoiled,always got the best everything and always handed to her on a silver platter.Her husband is a very respectable man,has always been a great guy with great up bringing.Stunned and confused is all i can say about it all!!!!

Discovered in the act, indicted, out on bail, violating bail conditions, still out. When will justice be done? Will there be a "plea bargain"? Maybe inappropriate touching? How about a really serious parking ticket? Or maybe Educator of the Month?

While you point one finger at Heather You should realize that you have three fingers pointing back at you. Make sure that your own house is clean before you start throwing stones,

I am thankful for the sentencing of this woman. You rarely see women convicted of the same crimes as men.

I hope that her children will be able to live healthy lives.

You all make me sick!!!! The crime was done, everyone has to live with the consequences, get on with your lives and stop trying to hurt each other . All you are doing is hurting the innocent family that had no part in this. The way I see it is that the perpetrator is now paying for the crime , you should be happy. Why are you making all the loved ones hurt more. They didn't have any control over this. Her kids are suffering daily, my heart breaks for them . The young man & the perpetrators children will suffer for the rest of their lives for this. Stop bickering back and forth , help the ones that need it the most. I'm an outsider but close enough to see what is going on. You really think telling kids that their Mom is bad and will be locked up for years is helping them? The mother in this case was negligent by not thinking about what this could do to her kids but is the Dad any better? I think not. Personally , if I had my way, these kids would be placed somewhere where they would get help. Both families are too concerned about vengeance, that the kids are being used against the parents and this is an injustice to them. I know nothing about the young victim but I pray his family is doing a better job helping him overcome this and getting on with his life. Grow up people, take care of your own responsibilities and give up trying to get one better over on the other. For this being the South and you all profess to be such Godly people, you sure are setting a bad example.
