I'd say accusing a teacher of statutory rape could warrant felony charges.

He deserves the smackdown coming his way.

This has been in in the local news here for a couple of days, I guess local news has to cover something between snow storms.

Kid was a popular student, athlete, etc etc, tweeted a two-word response to someone else's Twitter comment. For which he was suspended. For a week ten weeks.

Community complains punishment is not proportional, it's a good kid, tweet was sarcastic, he wasn't the one spreading the rumors, etc etc.

Then, yesterday, the police chief sees an opportunity to get attention intervene, and decides that felony charges are probably in order here. Just like you'd expect a guy who raped and murdered a girl in 1990 to do.

It's always best to take pictures. You can then use the pictures as blackmail to keep the sugar coming without fear she'll risk her career to claim you're the one forcing her to do it.

Just a tip from your uncle John, kids.

it's this sort of thing that makes a lot of men laugh when you talk of a 15-17 year old male "victim " of stat rape by a female teacher in many cases only a few years older than the boy. sure it makes the parents angry but the boys know very well what they are doing.

However, if a female student had made the same accusations about a male teacher, the male teacher would just now be getting out of jail and no charges would be filed against the student.

Anyone who makes false accusations of rape, if proven false, should be sentenced to the same sentence their would-be rapist would have been. No ifs, and, or buts.  fark anyone who makes false accusations - it's why people doubt actual victims and make our lives hell when we attempt to get justice. Because the few idiots -- and it is only a few -- who lie are held up as examples of the norm rather than the deviation from the norm.  Male or female, they can rot.

In a way yes, in most ways no. This case shows why polce shouldn't comment on possible charges, they tend to inflate. Cops have in several cases stated that an underage person's sexting = child porn. But everyone owns their own body and their likeness.

OH COME ON. These are young, impressionable youths with no way to really gauge the extent of their actions, the direct and indirect consequences of their words and deeds. Credible scientific groups have stated how adolescents are prone to impulsive decisions and can't maturely assess the appropriateness of certain actions. There's no way these kids could have understood the ramifications of their little game, and in fact they are the victims of a society that is trying to place too much responsibility on them.

Did anyone read the article? The kid made a comment that he had a sexual encounter with the teacher. Thing is, he made it up. He lied about the whole thing. And he and his friends are trying to brush it over by saying, "Everyone knew he was kidding." But from the posts so far here, people are either not listening to that part or skipping it. And now a teacher who did nothing wrong, who DID NOT have any sexual encounter with a student is being labeled as a statutory rapist and being slammed across the web and in real life.

Fark that student.

FTFA:  But many students, including junior Baylee Waldhoff, who wore a "Free Reid" shirt to school Tuesday, say Sagehorn's punishment was too severe.
"Everybody knew he was kidding," Waldhoff, 16, said of Sagehorn's tweet. "What the school has done has gotten way out of hand."

I'm with you in sentiment, but the problem is that it completely removes the incentive for someone to come forward later to admit their accused rapist is actually innocent. And proving a "false accusation" may be tough; the victim could have been unsure but was convinced by cops that the accused is the one. If someone honestly realizes their mistake later they're likely to remain silent for fear of going to prison.

If you know 100% for sure that the accuser is lying at the time and can prove it, then I have no sympathy and they deserve to be taken out back and shot. But you get a lot of corollary problems that arise with trying to become too draconian on those things. I don't have a good answer for it; I've mentioned this in other false accusation threads and I'm not sure anyone else has one either.

The double-standard here is staggering...

MALE MINOR admits to an improper relationship with a FEMALE teacher which turns out to be false = name, age, photo of "accuser" plastered all over the media, suspended from school for months. The FEMALE teacher is exonerated after a perfunctory investigation, defended by the school-board and authorities.

Flip the script and it's a farking Lifetime movie event...

FEMALE MINOR admits to an improper relationship with a MALE teacher which turns out to be false = name, age, photo of "accuser' redacted (since SHE is the real victim after all, and a MINOR!). The MALE teacher is excoriated after a perfunctory investigation, unemployed, jailed, STILL labeled a rapist when his innocence is proven.

I think the VAST majority of false rape allegations would evaporate overnight if the so-called "rape shield laws" were extended to protect the accused as well as the accuser. Once a conviction has been obtained, drag the perp through the shiat, But until then, keep names out of the media.

There are few crimes that are more universally reviled than rape. If we're serious about the principle that the accused is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law we need to do exactly as you suggest. If even the accusation is sufficient to cause such damage to a persons reputation then we need to ensure that both accuser and accused remain anonymous until guilt can be proven in a court of law.

Monkeyhouse Zendo: Every accusation of rape is potentially life ruining.


Hence why a knowingly false accusation should be a felony.

Granted, the threshold of proof must be very high (as in a not-guilty verdict for the alleged rapist is not sufficient) and we probably wouldn't see many guilty verdicts.  But the potential punishment needs to be severe enough to be an effective deterrent.

People remember what teaching looked like from the other side of the desk. They see teaching as a way to contribute to society and help children. Unfortunately, what they learn is that teaching was a shiat job when they were in school and has only gotten worse. I believe that most new teachers leave the profession after three years at this point because the working conditions for teachers, especially new ones, sucks so bad that working retail to pay off your student loans is a better life choice.

What other career would you need to get a masters degree in to pursue but your job payed shiat, limited you to a half hour lunch, and didn't even give you piss breaks

Kid, you're in a hell of a bad place. That teacher, and your cellmates, could own your ass.

Libel is a civil offense. What is extraordinary here is the police going after the kid for a felony especially in light of the fact that he made no report to the police.


Its extraordinary the school is having a magically changing suspension and managed to lose complete control of their student body and let the teacher get that much more dragged into this bullshiat as well.

it seems like everyone involved in this (minus the teacher) has managed to utterly fail and compound this dumb ass tweet into this clusterfark we are reading about now.

rzrwiresunrise: OH COME ON. These are young, impressionable youths with no way to really gauge the extent of their actions, the direct and indirect consequences of their words and deeds. Credible scientific groups have stated how adolescents are prone to impulsive decisions and can't maturely assess the appropriateness of certain actions. There's no way these kids could have understood the ramifications of their little game, and in fact they are the victims of a society that is trying to place too much responsibility on them.

A criminal charge for lying about murdering someone? Again, I'm not sure that will stick either... I'm unclear on what law is actually being broken... As far as I'm aware, there's no law against lying, unless you're under oath at the time...

And, note, I didn't even say "shouldn't"; I simply doubt they will...

There are few crimes that are more universally reviled than rape. If we're serious about the principle that the accused is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law we need to do exactly as you suggest. If even the accusation is sufficient to cause such damage to a persons reputation then we need to ensure that both accuser and accused remain anonymous until guilt can be proven in a court of law.

You wouldn't believe the mind-numbing logic that that steers feminists around things like this.  I dated a woman who would probably not feel insulted by being called a "rabid feminist".  She would explain away double standards like this claiming they were necessary to encourage women to report rape, and to combat other completely unrelated instances of male-dominated culture.

Wow. Did anyone RTFA? The entirety of this kids supposed false accusation of rape was "Actually Yes".
If it had been in response to a question posed by a LEO pertaining to an investigation of this teacher then these charges might be appropriate but FFS throwing it out casually as a joke while chatting w/ friends, may be in poor taste, but is not a crime. The only reason they are going after him is because he isn't an adult yet and can be  forced into accepting some sort of punishment even though deep down he knows he did nothing wrong. This is just like the kid w/ the Obama Door Kick Vid in Canada. Beat-em down early cause they might become something if we don't.

Dude. What about the story of Joan Rivers magical pussy? Should Gilbert Gottfreid be charged w/ a felony if she didn't laugh?

Uh, ginger dude, if you think because you are now claiming your comments were just sarcasm, maybe some sophomore or freshman girl should do the same thing to you.  Post inflammatory sexual innuendo, implying molestation, took pictures, etc., and then sit back and watch your future go down in flames.  Especially since your name is now all over the web for all future employers to find.

That's what your stupidity did to this teacher.  She will have to disclose this investigation and the unspoken assumptions will always be there.  I don't think she should have to worry about this crap, but until society changes, she and every other person falsely accused will worry.

I hope the teacher gets a good lawyer, and sues the pants off you, and all your future earnings.

Let's see during the separation and custody "battle" my ex attacked me, accused me of doing things to her and to the children....

What happened to her over these false claims... nothing (aside that eventually she did lost custody).

What I'll never forget was the cop that I was talking to after she attacked me again, in front of witnesses..."If you press charges, she gets a warning, and if she replies that you hit her back, we have to arrest you, so better to walk away before she thinks of doing it.".. I responded "even with witnesses with me the whole time?"... "yup."

Yep, the rule with DV calls is to arrest the man which made for a hilarious situation when I lived in San Francisco and the police were called on my lesbian neighbors having a screaming match in the street at 3am. Both were femme and both were demanding that the other be arrested.

I agree. The school could have handled it much better and the police should have stayed out of it.

Ahem, if I had been in charge, I would have called a school assembly and made the dumbass or dumbasses involved apologize to the teacher in front of the entire assembled student body. I think the parents should also have been present. I really think that would have been a better solution than an ever increasing suspension, and it might have preempted the stupid police interference.

Because women are the weaker, stupider sex incapable of exploiting another human or aggressively attacking another for sexual gratification due to their "feminine attributes" while men are evil, violent savages who will always attack another to get what they want and therefore can never be victims because of their masculine and deep-seated patriarchal characteristics.

Harvey Manfrenjensenjen: I'm with you in sentiment, but the problem is that it completely removes the incentive for someone to come forward later to admit their accused rapist is actually innocent.

If someone honestly realizes their mistake later they're likely to remain silent for fear of going to prison.

If you know 100% for sure that the accuser is lying at the time and can prove it, then I have no sympathy and they deserve to be taken out back and shot. But you get a lot of corollary problems that arise with trying to become too draconian on those things. I don't have a good answer for it; I've mentioned this in other false accusation threads and I'm not sure anyone else has one either.

Libel is a civil offense. What is extraordinary here is the police going after the kid for a felony especially in light of the fact that he made no report to the police.

Its extraordinary the school is having a magically changing suspension and managed to lose complete control of their student body and let the teacher get that much more dragged into this bullshiat as well.

it seems like everyone involved in this (minus the teacher) has managed to utterly fail and compound this dumb ass tweet into this clusterfark we are reading about now.

I agree. The school could have handled it much better and the police should have stayed out of it.

Ahem, if I had been in charge, I would have called a school assembly and made the dumbass or dumbasses involved apologize to the teacher in front of the entire assembled student body. I think the parents should also have been present. I really think that would have been a better solution than an ever increasing suspension, and it might have preempted the stupid police interference.


You would have been sued.  By everybody.  Just suspend him for a week and clean the slate in the teacher's record.  Problem solved and kept to a proportionate response.

AverageAmericanGuy: It's always best to take pictures. You can then use the pictures as blackmail to keep the sugar coming without fear she'll risk her career to claim you're the one forcing her to do it.

Just a the tip from your uncle John, kids.

Magnus: Well at least you can't file charges against me for calling you an idiot. I feel good about that.


Um. I got some bad news for you.

digitalrain : The kid basically claimed (falsely) statutory rape. That's a crime. It's also libelous (slanderous? - I can never keep them straight) behavior.

Then you might want to retake "torts 101", Mr. District Attorney. For reference, libel=written. Perhaps you can write it on the back of your hand for those close cases where you need to actually get your details straight.

Unless he actually filed a police report alleging said "rape", you might want to get a better grasp of what constitutes an actual crime before making such libelous accusations against the unfairly accused.
