Last month, 35-year-old Abigail Simon was found guilty of three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of accosting a child for immoral purposes, for a lurid affair she had with a 15-year-old student. The Catholic tutor has now rejected a plea deal, which would have meant spending just a few months behind bars. Consequently, she faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
Simon’s defense team argued that her teenage lover was the aggressor and initiated the fling, which took place in the spring of 2013. However, the prosecution said she was the one who preyed upon an innocent virgin. MailOnline reports that the pair exchanged more than 1,000 text messages, many of them explicit.
Perhaps the most shocking aspect of this case is that Simon appears to fully believe that she is the victim. In the footage above, she is seen acting combative on the stand and incessantly asserting that she is the one who has been hurt by this whole debacle. Simon is the manifestation of everything that is wrong with society becoming more and more liberal: she acts only to satisfy herself in the moment, without thought to the repercussions her behavior might have for others.
