Being that guy

Today Debra Lafave, a teacher accused of having sex with one of her middle school students, had her case dropped by the prosecutors when her "victim"'s mother refused to let him testify.

After the case ended today, she told CNN, "My greatest regret would probably be the fact that I put this young man through this," she said. She also described herself as "a strong Christian woman". Well, judging by her looks, two out of three for sure.

Somehow, I am thinking that her true greatest regret was that she was caught.

My other thought, totally not based on anything legitimate or legal, on this case is that she got a break because she is blonde and attractive. In another case, where the adult woman bore the victim's child, after having sex with him in similar circumstances, the woman received a nine-month prison sentence.
