Two years ago the CBC did a report on a similar case, again out west, where the boy was seventeen and the teacher was twenty five. The comments by the older townsfolk (male) was enough to make you wanna puke. The boy was actually run out of his home town because of the jeering and finger pointing - after all, he complained didn't he?
In that instance the teacher kept her job.
Then there is the teacher (female) who was having an 'inapropriate relationship' with one of her female students. Again in some jerked off prairie town and the school knew! In her mid-teens the girl came forward and tried to complain, only no one took her complaint seriously - not the school, not the police, not her familly. For the sake of her sanity as well as her safety, the girl left town.
In that instance, as well, the teacher kept her job.
