Having sex with a teacher at age 15 is a dream. We all had teachers that we dreamed about. This kid acted on it. I am not saying it is right. At 15, he knew what he was doing. It takes two. He should be up on charges as well. He was uder age and went after an older woman. That's wrong. I don't buy that I'm so incent game, he knew what he was doing. He shot his mouth off and here we are.
They are talking 15 years for having sex with this kid. Lets charge all the other kids in school for having sex. Lets put all the males in jail that are having sex with high school girls. The girls are under age lock them up as well. She was a teacher and shouldn't have done it, true. We let killers out after a few years in jail. You can kill people The case in Florida and the baby being killed.........and go free. OJ went free after killing two people, so lets lock a woman up for having alittle sex with a kid. That doesn't seem right. Kill them and go free, but have sex with them and go to jail. WOW. Your better off killing than having sex. WHat dose that say about this country. I hope the 15 year old kid is happy with what he did and thinks of it every day as Stacy will.

I like how you only pointed out two murder cases that didn't go the way people thought they should go. You didn't mention however that the overflow of jail facilities only houses those who only committed forgivable crimes...none of them are there for murder or robbery or anything of that sort!

Don't get me wrong, I think you are incredibly ignorant but I do agree with on both parties having to pay. At the same time, he is an immature 15 year old boy who will make absolutely nothing of his life. No doubt in my mind that he came onto her pretty strong but she was a grown woman and should have been able to say no. She had a home field advantage, she only had to see him at school. It was her who changed the relationship, she met him somewhere outside of the school completely on her own accord. Do you know what else she did? She chose to take off her clothes and lay with a 15 year old boy. She deserves to be charged and lose her job. She knew the risks going in and yet a responsible teacher chose to her future.

He was 15, he is seen as unable to take responsibility, which is stupid because he is the one that opened his mouth and got her into trouble. I wouldn't be upset to see him get probation or sometime in a detention center. As the law stands now. he got off scott free and it isn't right.

You are obviously mad at the situation but your whole post makes you sound very ignorant. Don't bring up past court sessions and insult the country if you are only making generalized accusations.

Whether you think 15 is old enough or if it was a dream of yours at 15, legally 15 is not old enough to give consent for sex. No matter what. What if it was a 15 year old girl and a male teacher? Would you feel the same? I figure not.
Also, a teacher is in a position of power. No matter if the student is 15 or 18, a teacher holds an amount of power over a student and should never cross a line. Ever. No ifs, ands or buts about it. They should be held to a higher standard because of the position they hold. Simply.

The more I read about this topic, the more I think that the town of Cabot has surely got to change. Unless of course, the point of creating this town was to harbor a bunch of idiots. If so, well done. Spot on. Job finished.

Was this woman mentally incapacitated? No? Then she knew better. How dare you blame a victim. And to further speak out against this child to say his life will amount to nothing. Shame on you. I guess with your advanced psych degree all of you are the authorities on sex crimes and victim statistics. Heave forbid, bc with mass stupidity there tends to be a correlation to religion, your child, present or future (hell ill even throw in past), are ever victims of sexual abuse, assault, or battery by not only a trusted friend if your family but their teacher as well. But hey, I guess as long as the kid keeps their mouth shut (as espoused higher up) its all good. No harm no foul.

If this were a male teacher sleeping with a male student, same details would you all feel the same way? Or even a lesbian encounter, or would you all be calling for the fag should get what's coming.

Also, if this young boy grows up and has proclivities towards younger people say 15 year old girls. Will it be that girls fault if she sleeps with him? Will she have seduced the older die eyed innocent adult into doing something he knows was wrong? I know as an adult that teaches I hate when a 15 year old convinces me of doing something I know is not only wrong, but illegal. Oh wait, that's right. I'm an actual adult that doesn't have desire to sleep with minors so that wouldn't happen. Also I'm a woman. Will it be fine as long as she keeps her mouth shut?
I am disappointed in the town that I have called home my entire life, sexual assault is not something to be made light of.

Also, probation for being the victim of a sex crime? Are you fucking kidding me. If I were you I wouldn't throw around my piety and call someone incredibly ignorant when you my dear are in the same boat.

I know lets start putting victims of sex crimes in detention centers, that'll def get victims to come forward and get all the pedos out of our schools. Especially the catholic ones.

Thank god the laws are written and enforced (hopefully) by someone with an actual understanding of the law. Unlike you.
