Ex-teacher blames student for sexual encounters, gets 90 days

Article here. Excerpt:

'Therese Gunn admitted Friday that she’d had a sexual relationship with one of her students. The 54-year-old, now-former orchestra teacher said she couldn’t believe she’d done it, and that she’d made a poor decision, and that she was sorry.

She then changed course, however briefly, and blamed her victim — claiming the then-17-year-old boy had coerced her into the relationship that developed at South Gwinnett High School.

“He did,” Gunn said in front of Judge Warren Davis. “He was like a used car salesman.”

Davis didn’t care for that argument, nor did prosecutor Karen West. And after Gunn entered her guilty plea to a single count of sexual assault by a person with supervisory authority, the judge sentenced her to serve just 90 days in prison.

The remainder of her 10-year sentence will be spent on probation.

“I don’t find that you're the kind of person that needs to be warehoused for years,” Davis said. “We get those cases and we get them out of society as long as we can. You're not one of those. But you clearly betrayed the trust that you had of parents, this parent, putting this child in your care.”'

Rubbish.

“I don’t find that you're the kind of person that needs to be warehoused for years,” Davis said. “We get those cases and we get them out of society as long as we can. You're not one of those. But you clearly betrayed the trust that you had of parents, this parent, putting this child in your care.”

Actually, she clearly is one of those. She used a position of authority over children to take sexual advantage of one of them, thus proving that despite her possession of a vagina, she is actually a greater than usual risk to the public. The fact that she tries to blame the victim also shows that she has little remorse for her actions, if any. She should be locked up and have the key thrown away.

Never underestimate...

... the power of nymphotropism. It is, as cognitive dissonant phenomena go, in a class utterly by itself. Truly fascinating to behold.
