Lesbian Teacher Jailed for Sex With a 15-Year-Old Girl

 

Helen Goddard, 26, has been jailed for one year and three months because of an affair with a 15-year-old girl. The music teacher was also banned for life to work with children and will be registered as a sex offender for 10 years.

The teacher admitted she befriended the girl after lessons and that she had sex with the girl at least six times, one of which during a weekend in Paris. The relationship lasted five months until an anonymous person reported it to the school.

  If this were America...  
 
...There would be a pic of the perpetrator at the source. All the teachers doing this these days are relatively hot.
And just out of curiosity, why is the British English spelling of "pedophile" "paedophile"? Is it because she's a laesbian?

When a British person say's Paedophile the "ae" is the sounding for "ee", So we pronounce the word "peedophile" not "pedophile". So because some of the weird rules the English Language has, it's written "ae".

  About the Word  
 
Actually I don't know why the brits write "Paedophiles", I suppose since the "ae" is spelled as a "e" it is just a lack of modernization of the word itself.

  "The  
 
music teacher was also banned for life to work with children", i think this is a bigger punishment for the lesbian teacher than being in jail for some time. Also i think if the anonymous does not report it then the affair would have gone further.

  Also  
 
As far as I am aware, the Modern English Language is lacking grammatical genders, so it's irrelevant the it's a female.

  Sorry to double post  
 
But at the end of my last post i wrote "the" instead of "that" just to clear any confusion :P

  um  
 
15... kinda pushing the limit to say she was coerced or manipulated

Because "pedophile" would be pronounced "ped-ophile" if it was spelled that way. Take the words "petal" or "pedal" the "pe" sounds like "peh" right? "pet" "ped" Add "ophile" to "ped". You see? Doesn't sound right does it?

"Paedophile" is the correct way to spell it in English. Just like "Mediaeval."

  More on it.  
 
Another Source states the "couple" actually PLAN ON taking the relationship further as soon as the teacher's outta jail..
 
  by: Mafia2020     09/21/2009 05:53 PM     
  @MalcolmB  
 
In America, most people say "peh" -dophile. It sounds right to us.

And in American English, the correct spellings are "pedophile" and "medieval." Since we have our own country, we get to make up our own rules! Just like Canada, Australia and New Zealand do.

I dont get it. There are soo many girls out there who go both way, why dose she have to involve a kid and risk soo much
 
  by: justus4all   09/21/2009 06:13 PM     
  Wow  
 
Glad to stir up a grammatical tempest in a teacup! Nobody got my "laesbian" joke though.
 
  by: captainchainsaw   09/21/2009 07:01 PM     
  Grr  
 
I guess we should prohibit nurses from dating patients.

Becuase of the nightengale affect.. women helping men in distress, visa vers, great places for lovev to flourish.

So since it puts either party in a position to be manipulated- we should prohibit it, in the interests of everyone who wants 'true' love..

seriously they call this girl a victim, they only thing she is a victim of is an overprotective society
 
  by: thedeeder   09/21/2009 08:02 PM     
  We  
 
write 'ae' because it is our language and the rest have to follow, end of issue.

Well' she will OK when she is 36, life starts then anyways...

  She's kinda hawt =P  
 
but she looks kinda like a character from a Final Fantasy game, the young rebellious type who dresses a little bit like a cowboy and has 2 six-shooter katana blades. the kind you get in an argument with at the beginning of the story and you dislike him and then he gets in a fight with the headmaster of the Academy and decides to rebel and runs off on his own and steals the 7 Dragonshard Crystals and you have to chase him all over the world to catch him and get the crystals back, and you finally get him, but then he escapes after your airship crashlands on an unknown island and you don't see him for a long time until he comes back and joins your party at the end of disk 3.

  Curious  
 
Since the girl will be sixteen and of legal age to decide over yonder, will she still be with her teacher still?

"Goddard wept today as the judge, Anthony Pitts, sentenced her to 15 months. Pitts said the girl had made it clear she consented to sex. The judge said it had been a "difficult case".

So it seems there was more than just sex involved with it. It is still wrong what the teacher did and she should have waited until the girl was of legal age if they were attracted to each other, no excuses.

It is things like this that makes us realize a child is a child is a child.

" The judge said it had been a "difficult case"." And in the end he still rendered judgment accordingly. I assume the 'difficult' part had to be, when this girl admitted to consenting.

Then we went on to incarcerate her, because, this teacher as an adult, she should have known better than indulging to a minor. I do believe, with a good behaviour she will be out in about 9 months, but the stigma will continue, being a lesbian will mean, she will then, continue living with a stamp on her forehead, and will be a pariah to this society, which she meant no harm to.

We seriously need to evaluate these kinds of crimes.

I was watching an advertisement of DOVE soap. It starts with a little girl facing a billboard with a model half naked, and it went on to show more of the same. Girls half naked appearing on billboards. Then it says, this little girl have a lot of influence that is corrupting her mind. DOVE is PURE.

It makes a lot of sense, to see that, young girls have to live with a certain expectations, and none are decent, all billboards with women on them, most of them they appear half naked, or none left for the imagination.

When other societies look at us and say, Our women are sexual objects, we take offense to that, but yet, this is what we subliminally teach them!!

A 15 years old consenting to a sexual relationship and a teacher cant make a wise decision!? BAH!!

  Hmm..  
 
On the paedophile vs pedophile thing, it's probably because of the origin of the word: from the greek paedos, which means child, and philia, which means love (if I remember correctly, it's been a while since my last ancient Greek class.)
 
  by: Zygo   09/22/2009 09:43 PM     
  @CaptC  
 
Because a pedophile would be someone who loves feet, while a paedophile is someone whole 'loves' children.

Look up the greek roots for the words.

  Of course  
 
all situations of adults, especially teachers, taking advantage of their authority are terrible. And they shouldn't be made light of, but upon reading the story about a teacher who recently slept 5 male students, 14-15 yrs old, (sometimes all at once) I couldn't help but picture my classmates from back in the day, and I doubt if many of them would've complained about such a scenario.

Wrong of these authority figures/adults? Absolutely.

  @Malcom  
 
I've never heard anyone say peed-o-phile. I've only heard peh-doh-phile.

On a side note. I wouldn't call some one whos 26 banging a a 15 year old a pedophile. Just kind of lonely and pathetic.
 
  by: jonnysodoff   09/24/2009 12:32 AM     
  Would you all  
 
still be so complacent if it were a 26 year old male teacher messing with a 15 year old boy?
I feel the need to puke.

Sex ed in school should NOT include a practicum.
 
  by: womenareviolent     09/27/2009 03:41 PM     
  @the use of "paedophile"  
 
I wish we could stop this misuse of the word "paedophile". It really refers to and adult who is attracted to pre-pubescent children. Unfortunately it has been used to describe adults attracted to any underage persons so much that people accept it as the proper meaning. A more appropriate term is ephebophile.

Using the colloquial term "paedophile" for the individual in this case puts her in the same pot as someone who would molest a baby. That should not be the case.

  hot teachers  
 
have to say, that teacher was smoking, if my music teacher looked like that, i would have flirted like a fool, and demanded gratification!

but seriously, if this was the 60s, it would be exciting, an older women showing the way to a younger girl, it would be delicate and exciting, and then extreme (in a good way)

but yes, 15 is a bit young, but when i was 15, i was not innocent, we all thought like we would one day in our 20s, stealing vibrators from spencer's gifts, and imaging every act possible

this is wrong, but i only believe so because of 2 reasons. 1) there is an eleven year difference, and 2) when you fool around with coworkers, it can get awkward if you break up
