Lisa Glide was sentenced to five years probation and faced up to a year in prison.
She had sexual intercourse with a 17-and-a-half year old boy, twice.
The boy said the following:
"I feel the entire case was blown far out of proportion and reason," the victim wrote once he was a college sophomore. "I was the initiator of the contact, not Lisa Glide. I was clearly not a young child and Lisa Glide was not a sexual predator.''
Well, I'd be hot for teacher too if she looked like that.

25-year-old Spanish teacher and former Miss Texas contestant Amy McElhenney was accused of having sex with an 18-year-old male student.
The age of consent in Texas is 18, but there's a law forbidding teachers from having sexual relationships with students regardless of their age. The grand jury refused to find her guilty of an improper relationship with a student since the text messages colored their relationship as endearing and flirtatious, but she did lose her teacher credentials.

Sheral Lee Smith was arrested and charged with statutory rape and drug charges involving a 14-year-old student.
She allegedly gave "the boy a pill" and had sex with him. According to Smith, none of this is true:

One of the videos actually leaked onto a website, drawing much attention from the general public.
Turner was sentenced to serve the remaining seven years of her sentence in state prison, along with two more years after she pleaded guilty to sending the student naked pictures of herself, which never resurfaced.

Michelle Preston Added by: Brian Gilmore
Kansas native Michelle Preston (who isn't naked here, but wearing a tube top in this picture) was a married teacher who coached the Freshman cheerleading squad.
She was fired once it was discovered that there were various naked pictures of her in various poses that prove how flexible she is circulating around the high school. She reached out to her three victims through Facebook, which then led to her having sex with these young boys a recorded 15 times. Police uncovered her victims' DNA on her couch cushions.
She pleaded guilty to the charges. She got off on probation and will have to register as a sex offender. Her students/sex partners were all of the age of consent.

Ridiculously cute 22-year-old Heather Shelton was charged with sexual activity with a 19-year-old student, which isn't illegal in any state, but still violates the age-old trust rule of "teachers probably shouldn't bang their students."
Authorities said Shelton had sex with a guy that wasn't even her student, but they had sex in April, and in North Carolina, it is a felony for any teacher of a school to have sex with a student from that school. So, she was brought in.
This one was actually pretty unfair. The age gap is pretty much nothing, and what the hell was a 19-year-old kid still doing in high school?
Not only does she have a cute Alicia Silverstone quality to her, but she did nothing legally wrong.

In June of 2008, 29-year-old Cara Dickey, who kind of has a confused-Anna-Kournikova thing going and is arguably the craziest person on this list, was let go from her teaching position after school officials somehow discovered "romantic" texts between Dickey and a 14-year-old male student.
They disappeared together later on in the day, after the texts, but were found the next morning. Dickey was found sleeping in her car and the boy was found in a local mall, probably celebrating, right? Wrong.
Police found that she had supplied the boy with rum, Tylenol, and NyQuil as part of a suicide pact. No foolin'. A freakin' SUICIDE pact.
Dickey was charged with unlawful imprisonment, promoting a suicide attempt, and endangering the welfare of a child.
In August, two months later, Dickey was charged with rape, after the police discovered that the she had sexual intercourse with the boy at least twice after the first incident.
She pleaded guilty to two counts of second degree statutory rape and was sentenced to four years in jail and an official sex offender designation. *Scarlet Dot of Shame*

Elizabeth Stow, 26 and cute in a pony tail, was a high school English teacher who was arrested in April of 2005 after school officials investigated the rumors of sexual relationships between Stow and a few male students. That's right, a FEW.
Prosecutors alleged that Stow had sex with three 17-year-old students and was charged with unlawful sexual intercourse and oral copulation with a minor, illustrating exactly what she'd been "stow"ing all along.
Stow pleaded not guilty to all the charges, showing that she was stowing more balls than brains in this situation, and was given a suspended sentence of nine years and one year in a county jail.
"We talked about it – like it was no secret. It was just a matter of time until she got caught."
