          Teachers Caught in the Act

          October 19, 2006

           

          Some teachers today are turning schoolboy fantasies into sexual realities with their inappropriate conduct towards underage students. Mary Kay Letourneau, who admitted to authorities that she had sex with a 13-year-old former student; Debra LaFave, accused of having sex with a 14-year-old student, and Pamela Rogers, accused of sending sexually-explicit videos to a 14-year-old boy, are just a few examples.

           

           

          Soul Mates?

          Janelle was 24 years old, and says she wasn’t thinking about the law when she lost her virginity to a 15-year-old student. Now she’s a convicted sex offender and faces up to 30 years in prison, but she believes she’s not a danger to kids.

           

          “My relationship was about love, not lust.”

           


           

          Living in the Twilight Zone

          Debra LaFave made international headlines when she was caught having sex with a 14-year-old student, and her attorney suggested she was too pretty to go to jail. Owen, Debra’s ex-husband, lived through the nightmarish media circus.

           

          How can he overcome having an infamous last name?

           


           

          Sex Ed?

          Jason was 15 when he says he had a sexual relationship with his gym teacher, although she denies it. He says he still has feelings for her. Tina, Jason’s mom, says he was preyed upon, and she fears he’ll never recover from it.

           

          “She stole something from him that he can never, ever get back.”
