How Many Teachers Get Away With This?

There must be some who get away with having relationships with their students or else there wouldn't be any incentive to try it. But dang! Really? And he's married, to boot.

A married PE teacher who had a sexual relationship with a girl pupil after seducing her in one-to-one lessons was today jailed for ten months.

Marc Grim, 37, became 'infatuated' with the 16-year-old after teaching her basketball classes at school.

The father-of-two invited her mother to a meeting to discuss the girl's 'sporting ability' and suggested she would benefit from private tuition.

They soon began a sexual relationship and he regularly told her he 'loved' her in exchange for sex acts, Exeter Crown Court heard.

In his defense, their sexual relationship didn't include full-on intercourse. Great defense.

And had the sexes of the parties been reversed, it's easy to believe the punishment would not have been as much.

Is it just me or is there far more of this going on now than there was twenty years ago? It seems that the sexual revolution has produced adults who are incapable of reasoning that having sex with an underaged student is wrong. It makes me wonder what other decisions this demographic has trouble making....oh wait a minute, what were those numbers on the last election??

I don't know if it's occurring more or if they're getting caught more. This one was busted with technology (a cell phone bill).
