Our country is in the midst of a horrifying epidemic: female teachers having sex with their students.
It seems like every week, a new teacher is charged with sex crimes against her students. As a result, we have compiled a list of the five hottest teachers who have had affairs with their students.
The first teacher on our list is Amy Beck, a 33 year-old middle school teacher who had an affair with her 14 year-old student from March to September of 2009. Arrested in 2010, she was charged with five counts for having sex with an underage person, and she faced a maximum of seven years in prison.
Amy McElhenney was a 25 year-old high school Spanish teacher and former Miss Texas when she was arrested for having sex with her 18 year-old student back in 2006. Luckily for her, a grand jury refused to issue an indictment since her student was over 17, the age of consent in Texas.
The ruling could have gone either way for her, as Texas law bans sexual relationships between teachers and students, regardless of age. If she was convicted, she could have faced 20 years in prison.
Back in 2008, 27 year-old Amy Northcutt was living the dream. She was a history teacher at Turlock Christian School, where her husband Justin also worked as a substitute teacher. However, the young couple’s world came crashing down when they were caught sending explicit texts to a 16 year-old female student.
The Northcutt’s were caught after the girl’s mother became suspicious of Justin’s behavior towards her daughter. When she looked at her child’s phone, the mother was shocked that the Northcutts had sent inappropriate messages and even propositioned the minor for group sex. The teachers were immediately arrested.
Carrie McCandless was a 29 year-old social studies teacher who was married to her school’s principal when she was arrested for having a sexual relationship with a 17 year-old student.
The incident occurred in 2007 during an overnight school camping trip. There, the cheerleading coach was caught having sexual contact with the underage boy.
McCandless plead guilty to to felonies of tampering with physical evidence and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She also plead guilty to a misdemeanor of having sexual contact with a minor. Surprisingly, she was not expected to serve any jail time.
Meet Courtney Jarrell, a 22 year-old high school math teacher and cheerleading coach who was charged with raping her 17 year-old female student.
Between February and March of 2013, Jarrell had repeated sexual encounters with the minor girl at her home. She was charged with object rape and forcible sexual abuse, and she expressed intentions to plead not guilty.
The entire community was stunned by the charges, since Jarrell was a beloved teacher at the school. “Everybody loved her,” student Kathryn Orchard said. “My parents were even way shocked because my parents loved her too. They thought she was a great teacher.”
