Basic facts: Meet Emily Jones. She's 23 and engaged in some type of sexual conduct with a high school senior in Texas. All of it occurred off school premises.
Appearance: She looks a tad stressed in the picture. Kind of like she hasn't slept in a couple of days because she knew the arrest was imminent. I'm pretty sure she's thinking, "This can't be good for my teaching certificate" or "Happy freakin' Valentines Day to me." But I bet she cleans up nicely.
My Verdict: A "not guilty" in less than two minutes. Sheeesh. The "victim" was either 17 or 18 which would have made their conduct legal but for that teaching position she has. Err, had. She's suffered enough. On behalf of the State Of Texas, I apologize to you Emily. Now let's get back to the War on Drugs.
(Thanks to the emailer who actually sent me this clip - on the same web site - about Phil King engaging in truly offensive conduct with energy companies. Now him, I'd convict. Edit: Here's a transcript of the damning story here if you don't want to watch the video.)
