Personally I don't support any educator having sexual relations with students - educators are there to educate and students are there to learn and not by 'hands on sex education'. Parents have this belief that the kids / students are safe at the schools. What does this do to that belief?
Yes, we know that relationships can form and evolve and some students have crushes on their teachers or professors or vise a versa. However schools are educational bodies and should maintain that lawful standard. But, sadly there is also the abuse side of this, whereby the student is the victim and the educator the guilty.
So the whole area of educator / student relations becomes grayed out.
Just because a student may be of age to be a consenting adult, doesn't generally mean that they are fully consenting, especially not in the abuse cases.
So do we allow for 'loop holes in a law' or just prosecute all, including those that are considered to be 'innocent'?
Surely if both 'consenting adults' any student / educator could wait until they no longer hold the student / educator 'relationship', as in the student graduates from the educational body.
My question is this - what the hell is a mother of 3 and married woman thinking when she decides to have group sex with 5 'young men'. I feel sorry for her husband and kids. However having said that I also think that perhaps 5 years prison is not the correct punishment due to the details of this case. There are victims here in the form of her 3 kids and husband who was away fighting for his country. Should they be forced to suffer more due to her actions. What she has done is not right, but I don't feel that it deserves 5 years in prison.
As for the 5 'young men' they are not victims here - they were clearly consenting adults and should be punished in some way too. Whether revoking any scholarships gained. Community work, etc. All six parties are guilty of this crime and should all receive some form of punishment.
