Female Teacher Gets Jail Time for Giving Student Oral Sex

 

25-year-old health and physical education teacher Rebekah M Todd has been sentenced to six months jail time after her plea bargain was ignored by a judge in Tacoma, Washington. She initially plead guilty to charges of attempted second-degree assault.

According to evidence prosecutors had, a 17-year-old male student at White River High School received oral sex from Todd in April last year.

After the Buckley teacher was initially accused of the incident, she decided to forfeit her teaching certificate and resigned.

  The teacher in the source...  
 
is pretty cute, and she's 25. If I was that 17 year old, I wouldn't have minded.

  We have got to repeal  
 
these stupid laws created by these "family values" nuts. How was the boy harmed? Did she bite him, or something? I wish that i had a teacher like this.
 
  by: walter3ca   03/16/2007 11:11 PM     
  Man  
 
I would have loved that as a 17 year old. I find nothing wrong with this. Jail doesn't change human nature, idiots.
 
  by: banshee9898     03/16/2007 11:12 PM     
  hmm  
 
Personally, I think this stuff has more to do with a teacher abusing his/her position than it has to do with harming the student. Sorta like how a boss shouldn't be having relations with employees. Criminal charges do seem rather pointless.
 
  by: bane39   03/16/2007 11:18 PM     
  Abuse of power?  
 
I understand the sexual harassment laws and the position of power clause so hold up on the flaming, but how exactly was she going to use her 'power' to punish this boy if he didn't stick his male member in her mouth? It's kinda hard to fail PE as long as you show up and participate.

And don't even say that "If this hot teacher was a guy and the poor victim was a girl then you would see things differently." 25 and 17 are honestly not that far apart, and I don't know about Washington but most states give sexual consent at 16. If I was that male student I would punch the neck of whoever ruined my daily post-PE fellatio by ratting out that teacher.

  summa cum laude  
 
this thing has really exploded in the teacher's face. it's also too bad everyone blew it for the student. that just sucks. It's not easy to get head of the class when you've got such a heavy load. however, i find defense of the teacher a bit hard to swallow.

Somehow I knew you'd be all over this like white on Ryce ; )

Great post!

I wonder if he passed his orals?
 
  by: White Albino   03/17/2007 01:18 AM     
  Here's what bothers me  
 
The source says they have PHYSICAL evidence that the teacher gave this kid head.

What in God's name would that "physical evidence" be? I hope it's only photos he took with his mobile.
 
  by: Volkova_Nova     03/17/2007 01:21 AM     
  Oh man  
 
Why couldn't that have been Riverhead HS instead of just River HS.... Oh well

  @The Law  
 
I only wish my Maths teacher would have done that to me!

Oh Miss Allen, where are you now you naughty lil minx?!

This ruling is freaking ludecrous, I seriously doubt the Student was complaining!
 
  by: spacechimp     03/17/2007 01:42 AM     
  Apart from that  
 
the judge just ripped the guts out of a very useful legal tool, the plea bargain. Normal reserved for people informing on worse criminal etc, how can anyone trust a plea bargain when this judge refuses to honour them? Not a good precident to start.

i'd beat the breaks off her
 
  by: m.I.a.ElIte     03/17/2007 04:07 AM     
  umm  
 
17 is a little old for doing jail time and losing your career over aint it? in my state (ny) 17 is legal =\

it may seem indecent but it shouldnt be scrutinized like this. she should only be asked to work at another school at the most
 
  by: maccheese   03/17/2007 11:04 AM     
  It must be said..  
 
It is so easy to say it was just a young guy and a young woman having fun, but it wasn't. It was a TEACHER and a STUDENT. That can't ever be OK. There is a built in level of trust and of authority in that relationship - there has to be! She could have gone to any bar and found willing guys to give b--- j--s to. And unless he was one of the lost and lonely he could have found one elsewhere. If he couldn't, thats why she targeted him. And if it was TRUE LOVE, which it doesn't seem to be - they could have waited til he graduated - then no one would be in trouble.
 
  by: lateach   03/17/2007 01:54 PM     
  yawn  
 
all i gotta say is this - if it was a male teacher and a female student, it would be a whole different set of posts....


and if it's "human nature"....then why couldn't she just wait till he graduated? Teachers know they can't have any types of relationships with students while the student is in school. That's how it is.


Just like you can't have any relationships with your co-workers....because if something happens, EVERYONE is affected.

Yall need to get out of your "AAAH SHE'S HOT SO IT'S OK!" mode and return to the common sense i hope you have. Unless, you would be confortable knowing your boss/teacher is having sex with another coworker/student....and those raises/A's...they're really from hard work and nothing else.
 
  by: hotrock11     03/17/2007 05:38 PM     
  @hotrock11: you're right but...  
 
I suppose it's a little hypocritical;

I know she's[/the teacher's] wrong.
I would go ballistic if my daughter was the student.
But, I would be jealous of the 17year old.

I can't explain it. Hypocrisy? Maybe. Or do I have a double standard for men/women? I dunno.

help?
 
  by: redstain   03/17/2007 06:07 PM     
  You can't rape the willing?  
 
I just wonder if the arrest came about as a result of the boy complaining? I realize it is illegal in either case, but who would care unless she was a hag.

the old guys out there are just jealous.
 
  by: smoker126   03/17/2007 07:19 PM     
  Vaginas and Penises are different  
 
even biologically there is a representation of the emotional attachment involved in sex.

if you're a girl something has to come into you, you have to accept it and you can feel as if it can "linger" there.

but for a male. you do the lingering so it doesnt matter at all.

sexist as it seems, we ALL know that regardless of any "double standards" this kid isnt going to suffer.

he's just been made happier.

lucky bastard.

  If it was a Male teacher  
 
People would not say thats its no big deal, even tho this case technically dose not bother me you can't have double standards like that/
 
  by: CriticalCone   03/18/2007 12:04 AM     
  biology and societal conventions  
 
... have competed ever since we invented societal conventions. Somehow, we're always shocked when biology wins.

While it may be inconvenient, what's called for here is an understanding that different circumstances dictate different responses. It doesn't seem like this woman's career should have to end because of this.

Dude. Repeal the laws? Ok. Since you have assigned yourself the ultimate moral athority of the subject. Let me know at what age it would not have been ok in your book of high moral standards. If he'd been 7 or 10. Kindergarten perhaps. 5 or 6. Just tell me where your morals allow people to step in and say no. The teacher was hunting for a hard one and she found one. It was aparently the only thing on her mind. When she should have been teaching, she decided to measure up some meat in stead. I personally think her punishment should have been a simple firing. The boy was in no way harmed. If you don't like my values then I's have to say in comparison you might not have any. It sounds like a NAMBLA argument coming from you. Are you registered or what?
 
  by: Shikiko   03/19/2007 12:46 AM     
  Not Bad

  by: Drudge   03/19/2007 03:02 AM     
  @Shikiko  
 
Accusing people of belonging to NAMBLA only succeeds in making you look like an ass.

Keeo the argument on track.
 
  by: Volkova_Nova     03/19/2007 04:06 AM     
  Hmm  
 
I think this woman should be thrown in jail for a long time.

Enough with the double standards already, if a man did this to a female student, there would be public outrage.

..But because it was a male student with a female teacher, he's now a hero.

Just like if there is a nice guy who does something bad...it looks much worse than it really is. But if a bad ass- type of guy does something bad, no one really cares, this goes for males or females...

That really annoys me.
 
  by: maxazillion   03/19/2007 08:35 AM     
  Yeah....  
 
although he wasn't really harmed, i still think she should be punished. Not to sound to conservative but double standards are rarely a good thing, and this is one of those cases where the law should stand firm even if the popular opinion is against it lest this sort of thing become acceptable.
 
  by: tiggyfiggy   03/19/2007 09:16 AM     
  @Walter, Spacechimp  
 
Lfmao... how was he harmed, she used her teeth! /slaps Walter on the back.

@Spacechimp Damn...I wouldn't mind if it were my maths teacher either...she's a milf. Good rack too.

  Shikiko  
 
Sorry VN. I was not really trying to say he was. just meant that it seems like the type of "must justify at any cost" argument. You never know who's here to comment. Hey. The woman's guilty of it. I see it as minor. Fire her til she can do something other than hunt for sex at a school and we all move on. Just don't try to say all the laws are bad because that's just the other side of crazy. It's a sign that the man comes from a biased situation. Not that he's bad but I'd be as concerned if some jackass called for her death. It's just a bit far for me.
 
  by: Shikiko   03/19/2007 02:07 PM     
  hrm...  
 
If the kid was "of age" and consented, shouldn't she just be fired? The whole "if this was in the workplace" argument is all well and good... except you don't end up in jail if you're having "relations" with your employee.
I don't see why this should be any different if the sexes were reversed...
But hey, that's just my opinion.
 
  by: Svengali   03/20/2007 01:10 PM     
  hrm  
 
Although the laws in Washington seem to show the age of consent being 16, they, apparently, have special lawns concerning a teacher/student relationship.
 
  by: Svengali   03/20/2007 01:12 PM     
  @Svengali  
 
Age of consent isn't national in the US, but by state.

  by: lateach   03/21/2007 12:19 AM     
  Oh,  
 
there are laws in many but not all states that do specifically address the student/teacher thing...
 
  by: lateach   03/21/2007 12:21 AM     
  This will separate the men from the he-men  
 
Not a crowbar, either.

Are you man enough to receive oral sex from a female cannibal?

I await your reply.

 
  by: White Albino   03/21/2007 12:47 AM     
  Sure...  
 
Provided she only ate her meat well done, and in that case, I'm not certain I'd really care by that point :P
 
  by: spacechimp     03/21/2007 06:05 PM     
  Totally not fair  
 
Why does it same like most of these female teachers that have sex with students in Washington, are smokin hot? as suppose to other states, the teachers in question are really ugly, even the ones in california? it just seems to me as though i grew up in the wrong state...
 
  by: darkmachine   03/21/2007 06:17 PM     
  ahhh!  
 
yet another thing to happen in my home town!!!
 
  by: bnpcollege   03/22/2007 02:44 PM     
  How come...  
 
... none of my teachers looked like that?
 
  by: spearhead   03/23/2007 08:03 PM     
  You know  
 
I've heard that female preying mantis eat the male's stuff because it provides protein. If it is the same for humans and she is a health instructor, perhaps she was showing an example of how to get protein into a woman's body. Besides, teachers are people too.

I'm not so sure she was hunting down students so she could give them blow jobs (maybe she was, lol). Sometimes things like this happen (as appalling as that may be to some).

I'm not sure firing her will do much good Shikiko. IMO transferring her to an all girls school or something similar might help. This one mistake might have ruined her life... Is that really what we're going for here...to ruin people's lives for their mistakes? Maybe we could forgive them and rehabilitate instead.
 
  by: banshee9898     03/23/2007 11:10 PM     
  @banshee9898  
 
Or just let the kid have sex ed :p
 
  by: spearhead   03/23/2007 11:13 PM     
  change the "double standard" thought process  
 
Instead of treating the female teachers equally with the males by making them serve jail time for something as simple as oral sex; change the standard the other way. Dont throw the male teachers in jail for having sex with their female students. That way both men and women are treated equal for having sex with a student.

Secondly; I think the 17 year old boy in this case probably pursude the teacher more than she went after him. Lets be real. 17 is not a little boy sucking his thumb and thinking about cartoons. They are thinking about getting laid.
