A 16 year old teenager is NOT a child. In fact, 16 years old is the age of consent in MN unless you are in a position of authority. You are confused.

Have you looked at the statute, oh, you who are confused? A paraprofessional is in a position of authority at a school.

I noticed that 90% of the comments deal with the womans appearance not the action.
Typical Liberal superficial, shallowness.
If this had been a homosexual relationship the dems would have been up in arms defending their
right to chose.
Dem or repub, He had a right to choose, He just has really Bad Taste & Poor Eye Sight !

Oh, for the love of carbs....here we go again. The supposed "un-consensual" relationship went on for a year. Once again, the only thing this woman is guilty of is stupidity. And, once again, the boy didn't rat her out or complain about the relationship - a jealous classmate blew their cover. OK, wait......she performed sex acts on the boy, but HE'S the victim??? Ummmm....

A 26-year-old MAN who worked as a paraprofessional at a Shakopee school is accused of having sexual relations with a then 16-year-old FEMALE student.

One MAN"S Sexual Assault, is another WOMANS Sexual Relations!

It is either all bad, or all ok....Splitting society via the application of the Law is nothing but sanctioned BIGOTRY!

Women need to fix this....any man that makes note is treated as a closet rapist.

I don't think this type of incident should appear in the media until there has been a conviction. A student can make a charge against a teacher/aide and the teacher/aide will be immediately suspended and never again be able to work in a school setting, even if the charge turns out to be totally false. Kids are not always innocent of making this stuff up, especially if they want to get back at someone in authority. It's happened before. I personally know of two teachers whose lives were ruined by false accusations. In both cases, students made up stories to retaliate for bad grades received.

There is nothing 'consensual'(please note correct spelling) about it.#1 The boy was 16 which places him below the age of consent.#2 The accused was a 'para-professional' which, as has been pointed out, may well have had her working with special needs kids. In that case,he would not have had sufficient mental, emotional, and/or social development to give consent.#3 This was not sex between 2 kids. This was sexual predation.
Actually the age of consent in MN is 16 not 18. What made it illegal is she was in a position of power and I believe there is an age difference limitation for those under 18. Such as no more than like 4 years age difference. But we certainly do not need anyone working in schools to be sexually involved with ANY students. Male or female.

Bingo. The fact that this woman was an employee of the school and well over 18 made all the students of that school off limits to her sexually no matter if they were the age of consent or not.

And this law SHOULD be enforced no matter if the offender is male or female.

Yes, and it seems like more women are doing it now then men, why is that? It would be interesting to see stats.

I don't honestly think more women are doing it, I think that women doing it is now taken much more seriously than it use to be rather than just dismissing it with a vulgar joke regarding boys and hot women.
