A little bit back I commented on teacher sex with students and suggested that, in the case of inverse genders the man would not get off as lightly as many of the women. Well, here is a counterexample:

A former North Texas high school teacher was convicted Friday and sentenced to five years in prison for having sex with five 18-year-old students at her home.

The Tarrant County jury decided on the sentence for Brittni Nicole Colleps, 28, of Arlington after nearly three hours of deliberation. It took jurors less than an hour to find her guilty earlier in the day of 16 counts of having an inappropriate relationship between a student and teacher. The second-degree felony is punishable by two to 20 years in prison per count.

The former Kennedale High School English teacher had sex with the students at her home over two months in 2011, authorities said.

Colleps is married and has three children. She turned herself in after a cellphone video of one encounter that involved multiple students emerged. That video was shown a trial.

Which I guess just goes to show, we might take women having sex more lightly than men, or maybe not, but definitely not freaky sex. Probably best not to have five partners, but if you do, not all at once. Eighteen or no.

    Good point. It also helps that this was Texas.

    It is worth noting that what she did isn’t illegal in most places.

    What is amazing is the comments on the subject as such places as Jezebel or Huffingtonpost.

    many posters want to claim that nothing wrong happened. Of course, these are the same people who claim unequal power relationship. I doubt that the same posters would approve of the sex scandal at Lackland Air Force Base where drill sergeants were having sex with trainees even though the trainees were adults. http://www.latimes.com/news/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-air-force-sex-scandal-lackland-20120810,0,1242574.story

    Yeah, and it shouldn’t be illegal in Texas as far as I am concerned. That being said…

    there is something to this. My view is that she deserved to lose her job, and be effectively blacklisted, but nothing more.

    I agree. Her conduct was unbecoming of a teacher, but shouldn’t have been illegal per se. In a related case, two NJ private school teachers are currently awaiting trial for sleeping with their students. Their defense is that since it happened on a school trip to Europe, and it wasn’t illegal there, that NJ has no basis for prosecution. They may have a point.

    That’s fascinating. I will have to look into that one.

    Here is a link on that case.
