Tennessee Woman Gets Twelve Years for Sleeping with a 17-Year-Old Boy

Another Above the Law link. A former Portland High School teacher convicted of having sex with her underage teacher’s aide has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

The title of the post is a little misleading. She is eligible for parole in four years. She was a teacher who slept with the student who was in high school. Maybe she should go to jail for that, she is in loco parentis and all of that. But the kid was a month from turning 18. Twelve years seems insane?
