Teachers, students and sex

A 29-year-old female teacher and track team coach in Anne Arundel County in Maryland has been charged with three counts of fourth degree sex offense--a misdemeanor--for having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old male student. But if that had happened in Georgia, the teacher wouldn’t have broken any laws. Student-teacher sexual relations are disturbing in all cases, but they are not necessarily illegal.
