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.
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.

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.
