Do you think teachers having sex with students has become more common over the past couple of years or are we just hearing more about them because of the internet? I did a quick check and it appears there are about 20 ongoing cases of female teachers accused of having sex with their students and surprisingly much less men accused of the same crime. In the latest one to go to trial, Stacy Schuler had tried the novel approach of saying she was insane at the time and does not even remember having sex with at least five members of the high school football team where she worked.

Apparently Schuler plied the students with alcohol, gave them all a massage and then proceeded to have sex with them in various parts of her home. She waived a jury trial and a judge convicted her on 16 counts of felony battery. How long do you think she goes to jail for? Well, the sentence is four years but she is eligible for parole in 6 months. Think about that if this was a guy. If a guy was convicted of 16 counts of felony sexual battery do you think he would be getting out in six months?
