Our own Richard Gartner is quoted in this Australian article.

Thanks for posting that Ken. Here is something from that article that jumped right off the page at me, concerning a 42 yo woman teacher who had an "affair" with a 16 yo boy in NY state:

Quote:
The judge ruled that, although [the teacher] Geisel's behaviour had "crossed the line" to the realm of the "totally unacceptable", the teenager was a victim only in the strictly legal sense.
Oh really? Let me see...because at least he was "getting some"? And this is the view of a judge! The teacher got six months.

The cases in this article are really interesting and it does look like things are moving in the right direction, at least in Australia.

John,

Yep. The "teacher" gets six months and the kid gets life.
