You remember Pamela Rogers? She plead “no contest” to having sex with a 13 year old boy who attended a school she was teaching, and got six months six months in jail and a lengthy probation under the terms that she not get in contact with the student, his family or use the Internet. Then she turned around and created a MySpace page and sent nude pictures of herself to the boy that she had sex with. She was arrested, and now is facing two more years in prison instead of just six months.
What possesses a 29 year old woman to continue in this destructive way? Why was it necessary to send these photos and violate the terms of her probation– did she think that she could get away with it? Why is it that people like this try to take advantage of underaged children in the first place?
All I can say is that it seems that our sexually saturated culture is taking its victims– be they 29 year old women that should have no problem finding a husband or 13 year old boys that will have problems bonding with a girl his own age based on this teacher’s actions. The sickest part is that this 13 year old probably has quite the ego– and the effects that this teacher had will have ramifications for many years to come.
