Arkansas Teacher Arrested for Having Sex with Student


In yet another story to make you say, "Where were these teachers when I was a kid?", an Arkansas teacher has been jailed for having sex with a student. Melissa Monroe, 32, was released on a $5,000.00 bond and is prohibited from contacting the victim.

The case apparently involves some text messages that Monroe allegedly sent to another teacher regarding the incident. One of the messages read, "I really can't believe I'm in this situation. I was drunk. But "blank" it was good. I'm in a real mess.".

The 18-year-old male student reportedly went to Monroe's home where Monroe drank and eventually had sex him. Monroe, a married mother of three, is charged with second degree sexual assault and furnishing alcohol to a minor.

  Wait he is 18???  
Then how is this sexual assault? He is clearly an adult. I can see the alcohol charges but shouldnt this be considered consensual since he is 18.

she is yet to be convicted. I believe they may make the alcohol charge stick *if* the student cooperates, but without that cooperation I don't see them having much of a case considering his age.

  The only thing  
I can think of, is the student is claiming she got him drunk. So he would have been considered "Mentally incapacitated" and that can result in a sexual assult charge.

There may be some breech of trust issues too, considering he was her student... not sure if that's illegal though.

  i see nothing wrong here  
the student was 18, and was willing, so whats the big deal?
  by: fordrew11   11/08/2008 04:19 AM     
men are usually willing to do anything

even 15, 16 ect, as he was 18 i see no problem but she was his teacher

  This is silly  
but I found this when I googled for more

think also there would be no problem with that if an 18-year-old boy takes a visit at his teacher because he is an adult already, but I dont know what the Arkansas' law like. I think at us there would be no problem of that.

...state the Arkansas law declares it illegal if a teacher has sex with a student who is under the age of 21.

  For gods sake!  
He's 18! lol he's not a kid! In the uk when you're 18 you can drive, have sex (with either gender), get married, get divorced, smoke, drink, play the banjo and sing in the rain if you want to!

It's insane that this is being dealt with as sexual assault. Fair enough she should be sacked for shagging a student and she should be slapped (not literally) for ruining her family but its going a bit far.

Anyway good on him, she's tasty.

  The way i see this one  
Is the boy went to his teachers pad, a bit drunk, but had more with him got her drunk then he done the deed and got scared and made a complaint....

Then again I maybe wrong.......

I think you're right on there. How many young dudes would pass up "a chance" (especially a teacher) to put another notch on the bedpost? Teenagers are not too fussy when it comes down to IT.

  Other than her being his teacher...  
...what crime really took place here? None. He was 18 years old, not some boy fresh into his teens =\

The teacher should have at worst been fired from that particular school.

  At 18  
He's a man, not a little boy. The teacher was in the wrong to sleep with one of her students and was wrong to let him drink alcohol, but the guy really needs to be taking some responsibility for his own actions here!

He visited the teacher at her house, therefore he instigated the situation, not her. I've never heard of anyone just going to visit their teacher at home, not unless they were friends with the teacher's kids or something similar. He's not some little kid, if she offered him alcohol and he didn't want it, he didn't have to drink it. If she tried to coerce him into sex and he didn't want to do it, I'm sure she couldn't force him. What happened here was consensual sex between 2 adults!
