I'm is this only 4 years. Were the boys considered the age of consent? Was the only crime a "teacher boundary" violation....Would the outcome be the same if the teacher was male??? The judicial system certainly seems broken to me.

I'm thinking along the same lines, just me, except I'm wondering if the outcome had been different if the students were girls.

Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home Iíll never see

It may sound absurd...but donít be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed...but wonít you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
Itís not easy to be me

Think about what the gentleman says at the end, though--it's not just about age, but about TRUST students place in teachers. I think it could have been a longer sentence, and they should keep her in the full four years, but I'm also just glad it is one more conviction and that more and more people are realizing that such cases of women abusing boys really is abuse. I think we are seeing some progress.

Same goes for those who will make excuses for it i.e. people that will say there was no trauma and that these boys should feel lucky to have "gotten some". You can be gauranteed these same apologists for female sex offenders would be howling with outrage about the short sentence if the perpetrator was male. Also, what is it with women sex offenders and using insanity as a defence? This is hardly seen when the accused is male yet when women abuse they somehow always need help, not condemnation. As far as I'm concerned there should be no insanity defence for sexual abuse or assault under any circumstance. If one seeks sexual gratification at another's expense the intent should speak for itself.

Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And weíll change the world.
