Naughty Teachers Files Vol. VIII: Slap On The Wrist

This one comes from across the pond. (HT UK Daily Mail)

Looks Like DHE is pretty popular in the UK too. Pictured above is Leah Davies. She was recently convicted of sexual activity with a child. Then it gets weird. From the UK Daily Mail:

"Leah Davies, 30, had sex with the schoolboy in his family home after being invited over by his mother, with whom she was friends.

After the mother went to bed, Davies and the boy watched a DVD and drank vodka before having sex in the living room.

She was given a 12-month suspended sentence, plus a two-year supervision order, after Judge Martin Rudland said she was an ‘ordinary, decent, hard-working woman who made a tragic and foolish mistake’.

Davies first kissed the boy in autumn 2009 and on another occasion performed a sex act on him, but they only had sex once, Manchester Crown Court heard.

(The judge stated) "The experience was short-lived and required no coercion. He touched you first. He was not seduced or corrupted by the experience."

Bottom Line: The fact that it happened once is one time too many. So she basically gets a slap on the wrist. If the genders were flipped, I doubt a similar sentence would be issued.
