Then proceed appropriately.In accepting the plea agreement, Judge Patricia Summe granted prosecutors' recommendation to sentence Jones to five years of diversion but no jail time, and she won't have to register as a sex offender. The diversion requires Jones to report to a probation officer, and undergo drug tests.
On the other hand, I'd probably be a little proud of my son too... society would somehow make me want to be proud (not that I blame society for me being the man who I am today, it just had its little contribution to my mind).

I don't think I would be very happy. There would be a long talk between me and each of them individually and then a talk with them together.
I'd get mad at him so my gf doesn't get mad at me.
Then I'd pat him and give him the don't tell your mother look.
Yeah, I'd be a horrible father
"his family were uncooperative with them and sided with his former teacher."
I love the fact that his own family sided with the teacher,if they don't have a problem with it, I don't think I should.

A few years ago, something similar to this happened in a school local to me (i attended there at the time), though it was with a male teacher and female student. He got shamed out of the school for several months until his name was cleared, but even when he returned, people still called him out for it. Even though the student had said that they had consented to sex with him (and even that she'd seduced him) after some time, people still made him look like the bad guy.
Would you still "smash your sons face in"? Let me tell you something. If your child has developed their own sense of being able to make their own decisions, you're not a bad parent. If you've raised them to be comfortable in the own decisions and not back out of something the moment things get tough, you're not a bad parent. You ARE a bad parent if you tell them it's wrong for them to do this after you've raised them telling them the complete opposite, and you become less of a man than them the moment you resort to physically attacking them.
It's not about whether he's proud of it. The fact he's apparently still with her through all this says to me that it wasn't about getting laid by some sex-starved teacher. It might have initially been about that, but i think now, it's grown into a proper relationship.
He's freaking 17. And good for him! I agree that it's unethical for the teacher to be in a relationship for the student, but I don't believe in the magic line the law has invented between 17 and 18. Plenty of folks over 18 are still immature idiots. Plenty of people under 18 have regular sex in loving, consenting relationships. I only care that noone was abusing the other. Though I do agree it's not something a teacher should do with a student, but that's an employment issue.
Props to the family for siding with the teacher.

And thus I give you: MALE contraception!
I think he asked parents.
ummm isnt this months old? i remember seeing this on the news a few months ago the same exact story and she admitted to it way back then from the start.
either way hes 17 it doesnt matter, in the majority of states 16 is the legal age of consent.
My son would never do this if I had a girlfriend which I do want but I digress. My son WOULD NEVER do it, I'd teach him manners.
I would probably be happy yet annoyed. I am not a fan of double standards yet I would probably feel good about my son having this notch on his belt.
The amount of people that don't comprehend positions of power compromising informed consent in this thread is astounding.
Doesn't work that way.But I can guarentee this wouldn't happen ever.
I can say that there is most certainly a double standard when it comes to this kind of thing. I have 4 boys and a girl and if this was one of my boys, you get high fives (unless the teacher forced them in which case someone's getting a beat down, although she is/was a cheerleader so that may merit some re-evaluation). If it was my daughter, regardless if it was consensual or not, someone's getting a beat down and she would be grounded until she moved out of the house.
It's very similar to how it's considered OK for a man to sleep around yet not OK for a woman to do the same.
