As a teacher I can tell you that I am soooooo very tired of this! The kind of "teacher" who would do this is not a teacher...they are a disgrace to mankind!

17 year old? Who cares then. A 17 year old is old enough to make their own decisions regarding sex.

None of the teachers I had, ever did things like that. Most of them were old. It is a shame when we can not trust our teachers (or police). What has gone wrong with folks.

I could be old-fashioned, but, maybe the school system should place older teachers with older students & younger teachers with younger students. No doubt about it, I am old-fashioned.

I doubt this would make any difference...if you don't have any morals by the time you're old enough to teach, the age of the student or teacher won't matter. A skank is a skank; a predator is a predator. There's no age limit.

How about the fact that 17 is still a minor under the law, which is why she's charged!

what i can't figure out is if this 17 year old has sex with his 15 year old girlfriend, he would be arrested, tried as an adult, and be on the sexual offender registry for the rest of his life. in previous cases involving 16 and 17 years having sex with a teacher, it was said "they are scared for life". if it was truly rape (un-consentual), the teacher should be prosecuted. the 17 year old is old enough to make up his own mind. and, looking at our teenagers these days, he is probably held in higher esteem by his peers for "making it" with a teacher. i do not know which is sadder, the justice system or those trying to "protect" the 17 year old.

She will get a slap on the wrist and let go. If it were a male teacher and a female student, the teacher would be burned at the stake.

In Tennessee, the age of consent is at least 13 years old. Statutory rape is defined as sex with someone who is 13 and 18 and you are at least four years younger than the offender, so your 17 year old would not be prosecuted.

Yes, that way they will have no idea what the real world is like except for what they watch on MTV.

We can send children to adult jails, but they can't have adult status. I agree that this 17 year old was a minor, but I also think we need to stop sending children to adult jail.

I want to know why everyone is making such a huge deal about this. Underage sex happens EVERYDAY and the only reason any of you are saying anything is because it was a teacher that did it! What about the kids who are having babies?? They got pregnant by kids their age.....what the difference?? In my opinion it's all an outrage and instead of complaining here, why don't you people go talk to your kids and tell them to quit having sex!!!
