Colorado Teacher Sex Offender

In January, Courtney Bowles, 31, a Mountain View High School employee was discovered by a police officer, having sex with a 16 year old male student. Police say she and the boy were found naked in a car at Loveland Park in Colorado. Bowles was employed by the high school as an Instructional Coach. Supposedly, an Instructional Coach works with school teachers to improve their classroom instruction and interaction skills with students.

Despite the fact Prosecutor Renee Doak requested Bowles be sentenced to jail and despite the fact police were witness to the crime, Judge Stephen Howard ruled Bowles be set free. She will serve no jail time. Instead, Bowles must perform 80 hours of community service, serve 10 years on probation and register as a sex offender. She is also prohibited from seeing minors under the age of 18.

Although Bowles resigned from her high school job, her lawyer said she now has a new job. Thus, in essence, she received practically no punishment at all. Even her community sentence is puny - only 80 hours. This can be completed within two months while she works.

Explaining his light sentencing, Judge Howard stated "“she has already been adequately punished, and this will be an ongoing thing for many years."” He also said the 16-year-old caught having sex with Bowles asked the judge for the least punishment possible.

How has she already been adequately punished? Because she lost her teaching related career? Being removed from employment is standard punishment for every teacher caught having sex with underage students. Losing a job is rarely deemed as adequate punishment for sex offenders especially those cases involving male instructors. Additionally, in past cases involving male teachers, many 16 year old girls have requested leniency for the accused. Justices routinely brush these girls' request aside. Lastly Prosecutor Doak argued that the victim in the case has dealt with consequences, as well. "His life has been affected by this," she said. "His schooling has been affected by this. He feels like he's being treated differently and might have to change schools."

The outcome of the Courtney Bowles case is similar to the infamous Debra Lafave case.

Obviously, some judges remain stuck in an obsolete feminist / white knight philosophy. They adhere to the idea that women should not be held to the same accountability standards as men. They believe adult women should not be held fully responsible for their actions.

Courtney Bowles is married with two children. Her husband, understandably, has filed for a divorce.

Yes a total hypocracy.
I also noticed a fair while ago, whenever I read about these teacher / student liaisons, that if the teacher is a man: he's usually referred to as a 'predator', or a 'paedophile' and that he raped or sexually assaulted the 'child' (even if the 'child' happens to be 17 yrs old).
Conversely, a woman teacher with an underage boy in her care: the media report as 'had an affair with', 'became emotionally involved with' or at worst: 'she took advantage of' or 'breached her position of trust'.
NEVER: 'Raped the child' or 'sexually assaulted the boy' and most certainly, I've never seen such a female perpetrator referred to as a 'pervert', 'paedophile' or 'predator' (even though she is no less any of those than her male equivalent). At least according to the current LAW.

Note that in all of these 'offences' against 'children' involving 'child victims' they are always consensual. It is only the totally ridiculous feminist influenced law that deems or DEFINES them teacher's 'child' lover as a 'child' and as a 'victim'.

(How many other laws can you think of that must tell a victim that they are a victim, because the 'victim' doesn't consider him/herself as a 'victim')?

Because in all of these cases the 'children' ARE consenting partners (although the nonsensical feminist law states they are too young, too immature, or naive to GIVE their consent, which is NONSENSE) and NO RAPE occured, whether it is male teacher or female teacher, it is really a non-event. The law thinks otherwise... Often these cases are only 'cases, because somehow the state became aware of the relationships. Nobody actually complained or made a fuss and if anyone did it was usually the 'childs' parents or some jealous co-worker, or even a sticky-beak neighbour...

However, since the state often throw men into prison for many DECADES to be sodomized and beaten daily as despised 'paedophiles', the SAME judgement must surely apply to BOTH GENDERS of teachers, when it comes to assessing the seriousness of this (imagined and farcical) 'crime'...

Also: a lot of people (usually men) who comment on this rather hot topic, often say that no crime ever occurred when discussing a BOY being 'seduced' by a 'hot' female teacher, saying how he was so 'lucky' and how they envy the lucky 15 year old boy...
What they don't seem to understand is that in all these nonsense cases, GIRLS with male teachers are no less 'lucky' than the boys who 'score' with a 'hot' lady teacher...
Men making such comments all seem to have been indoctrinated (fooled) by this BS 'victimology' about women and girls, which of course, is one of the core elements of feminist ideology.

Girls actually enjoy sex more than men and place more importance too on love / romance and are more inclined to become dependant on an older lover than boys or men.
At the end of the day there are really no 'victims' in these so-called 'crimes'. Even young people should be capable of choosing and should have the right to choose their friends or indeed lovers, without the 'approval' or disapproval of the tyrannical FEMINIST ruled state!
