There is something wrong with the justice system when a female teacher gets probation and is only barred from teaching for two years. Had the teacher been male, I’ll bet he would have gotten 20 years for each victim.
Below is the story from USA Today:
After pleading guilty to having sex with three underage teenagers and sending lewd messages, a substitute teacher in Louisiana was spared jail and could even be headed back to the classroom, New Orlean’s station WDSU reports.
As part of a plea deal, 34-year-old Heidi Domangue Verrett pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. When she was arrested in 2016, the Terrebonne Parish instructor faced three felony charges, according to the report.
A district judge then suspended Verrett’s six-month jail term and sentenced the substitute teacher and teacher’s aide to two years of unsupervised probation and ordered her to pay $900 in fines, Houma Today reports. She did not have to register as a sex offender.
