That wont happen for two reasons.

1. He aint pretty enough

2. There is no hole between his legs for judges and prosecuters to make deals with

Can't tell the difference between a 16 year old and a 47 year old? Thought my eye-sight was bad or she didn't care. Anyway, this teacher needs a long date with ol' Bubba.

Mr. Craft was my high school Algebra teacher as well. He was present at parties involving underage drinking with students (female) along with other male high school teachers/coaches. At one of these parties, Mr. Craft crawled into the bed where I was sleeping and began to touch me and try to become sexual. I pushed him off and told him no and he left me alone. I was 17 at the time and he'd of been around age 30 at the time. WHAT A CREEP!!!!

You reported him. Right?
Or...Were you afraid of getting caught drinking underage?
Even if you were drinking underage it didn't give him any extra priveleges.

(he 'WOULD HAVE BEEN' not would of been) anyway this was public schools so sex between students and teachers is routine, you over reacted, he 'might of' taught you some things in bed that you could use in the future!

"Yep" from Asheville, what are you the grammar police?\
So,you just post grammatical corrections and rude comments defending an adult who reacted inappropriately with minors and then that is that? I sense some shallowness....

And, to the earlier question...no I did not report it. All I can say to justify that is, yes - I was not interested in getting myself and my entire group of friends in trouble. Teens tend to avoid that. Looking back, the 'right' thing to do would have been to say something.

She wasn't a minor from a consent standpoint, but he was a teacher in a position of authority over her and that made it a crime. Should have been reported.

She went with him, knowing who he was, and could have just not gotten in the car. THEN she went with him, slept with him, went home, THEN dialed 911.

This sound a bit fishy. I am in *NO* way saying it was right...it *WAS* sickeningly wrong...but it sounds more like she set him up deliberately. He deserves jail...but she also deserves a closer investigation into her own conduct.

15 years old is age of consent in SC? Dayum, getting younger. Learn something new every day.
