Why is that Teresa Boatright not on the SEX OFFENDER LIST... and does anyone know whot to talk to about it... Woman arrested in sex case
By BILLY W. HOBBS

A former emergency medical technician recently was taken into custody by authorities and accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy.
Teresa Boatright, 39, of the 2000 block of Byrd Road, Thomson, was arrested on an outstanding warrant Sept. 3, charging her with contributing to the delinquency/unruliness of a child, according to a report filed by McDuffie County Sheriff's Department Deputy John Norton.
Ms. Boatright since has been released on bail from the McDuffie County Law Enforcement Center.
Ms. Boatright had been working with Southstar Ambulance Service in Thomson until she was terminated on Monday, according to Brad Pittman, chief of Southstar's Middle Georgia Division. She formerly worked as an EMT for McDuffie County Emergency Medical Services, according to EMS Director Tim Edwards.
"Southstar regrets learning of this incident regarding our former employee," Mr. Pittman told The McDuffie Mirror in a prepared statement.
In his report, Deputy Norton said he and Deputy Sgt. 1st Class Mike Hobbs spoke with the teenager and his mother at the law enforcement center Sept. 3 in reference to a follow-up investigation. During that time, the youth was questioned about cell phones reportedly used in conversations with Ms. Boatright.
The teenager also was asked to complete a statement regarding events that had transpired between him and Ms. Boatright.
The boy, according to records, began seeing Ms. Boatright in March 2008. He told deputies he had seen her almost every weekend and that the two had engaged in sexual activities.
Authorities also were informed by the teenager that Ms. Boatright had told him he would be able to leave his residence after he turned 17, records show. The teenager told deputies that Ms. Boatright had told him law enforcement authorities and other people "did not care what they were doing."
At one point, Ms. Boatright reportedly purchased a Motorola cell phone and left it in the mailbox of the boy's grandfather so that he might continue to converse with her.
The boy's mother notified authorities about her son's involvement with Ms. Boatright.
Authorities also filed a juvenile complaint against the boy

She is not on the sex offender list because she can not be charged with a sex crime. It seems that in the state of Georgia- a child who is 16 has the legal right to consent to have sex and there is nothing a parent can do about it. It is called the "Legal consent age". It does not matter that this woman was 38 years old at the time that she had sex with him. However, if in turn, the 16 year old has sex with anyone UNDER the age of 16 he can be charged with a sex crime. Beats all I have ever seen. And they wonder what is wrong today with our teenagers. Boatright is a parent herself- wonder what she would of done if her daughter were having sex with a 38 year old man? This boys parents have done everything within their power to keep this woman away from their son- wonder what ever came of this case?

The power of the internet. Just start your own web site and post her picture on it or on FaceBook and blast it to the world. I'm going to take it to YouTube.

I feel ashamed to live in this town, knowing some folks could have sex with a child and nothing happens. But a fight can break out and a child and there parents are looked at like salvages.

I personally would love to do just that. Post it for the world to see- the sad fact of that is- that I can not. She can sue me for defamation of character. She was convicted of DISORDERLY CONDUCT- because that was the only charge or the best one that would stick- the Laws in our state are so far fetched.... She did get 60 days in jail and 12 months probation- but the damage she done to this 16 year old child will follow him for the rest of his life! What a sicko!

Ok skip the picture and leave out the name. Due to legal reasons. But a news report on the matter is legal. A letter to the right news station would bring light on the matter. I read the paper every day. The paper shows names of men who have commited the same crimes; so if a guy was caught with the same age difference as these two; would he do jail time and be listed on the internet or not? It's a touch and go subject, people tend to turn there backs towards subjects like this also. Until it happens to some-one in there family.
