    Default I guess she was too pretty for jail

    Hot Teacher Gets Only Probation for Sex With Boy - Her lawyer said former teacher Debra Lafave was "too pretty" to go to jail to having sex with a 14-year-old boy and apparently a Florida judge agreed with him. In a plea bargain that is certain to revive the debate over where men are treated equally in these kind of sexual predator situations, Lafave pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to two charges of lewd and lascivious battery. She gets three years of house arrest and seven years of sex-offender probation.

    Another teacher has pleaded guilty to having sex with a student.

    This time it was in Florida and involved a 14-year-old student.

    Debra Lafave, 25, will serve three years of house arrest and seven years' probation. She pleaded guilty to two counts of lewd and lascivious battery.

    The former Greco Middle School reading teacher apologised during the hearing, saying, "I accept full responsibility for my actions."

    The boy told investigators the two had sex in a classroom at the school, located in Temple Terrace near Tampa; in her Riverview townhouse; and once in a vehicle while his 15-year-old cousin drove them around Marion County.

    The boy told investigators Lafave told him her marriage was in trouble and that she was aroused by the fact that having sex with him was not allowed.

    He said he and Lafave, a newlywed at the time, got to know each other on their way back from a class trip to SeaWorld Orlando in May 2004.

    If convicted at trial in Hillsborough County, she could have faced up to 15 years in prison on each count.

    The plea agreement was also designed to resolve similar charges in Marion County, where Lafave was scheduled to appear in court on December 8. But prosecutor Ric Ridgeway said his office wanted to speak to the boy's family first.

    Hillsborough Circuit Judge Wayne Timmerman said Lafave will lose her teaching certificate forever, must register with the state as a sexual predator, may not have any contact with children including the victim, and will not be allowed to profit from the sale of her story or personal appearances.

    The victim's mother said afterward that the public scrutiny had taken its toll on the family, and they just wanted to see it all end.

    "If we had continued along this path, this would have followed him forever," said the mother, whose name was being withheld to protect her son's identity.

    "My prayer is that he can leave this behind him and go on and be a happy, healthy young man."

    After Tuesday's hearing, Lafave's lawyer, John Fitzgibbons, said the plea was "a fair resolution of this case". Asked how she felt afterward, Lafave said, "tired".

    Fitzgibbons said in July that plea negotiations had broken off because prosecutors insisted on prison time, which he said would be too dangerous for someone as attractive as Lafave.

    He said then that she planned to plead insanity at trial, claiming emotional stress kept her from knowing right from wrong.

    Too pretty? I'd have to disagree with that on aestetic grounds.

    This story has me going...WTF???

    I think it's awesome she's not allowed to make money off her story. That always pissed me off about Mary Kay Letournau (sp).

    And are those supposed to be mugshots? God lord, the one on the left looks computer-generated.

    She looks like if you put makeup on a cow. There is something very bovine about her features. And what the hell is that first photo?

    I hear y'all!! It's hard, but someone's gotta do it.

    My son walked by- and he's VERY much into girls right now- and said "she's not cool" (to the left pic) and "she's not cute" (to the right pic). Outta the mouths of babes- and someone right up this chick's alley.

    She violated someone's child & should pay a lot more than that. This sentence is not much of an example to set for other perverted teachers who might feel like acting on their impulses.
