    MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) — A former southeastern Michigan teacher already serving time in prison on charges she had sex with a 15-year-old student has been sentenced to 6-15 years for related charges in Macomb County.
    Kathryn Ronk earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct. She was originally facing first-degree counts and other charges.
    On Thursday, the 30-year-old learned her punishment. She apologized in court and said she takes full responsibility for her actions.
    She was sentenced in March to 6-15 years in prison in Oakland County, where she also pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal sexual conduct charges.
    Authorities say she engaged in sexual acts with the teenager in classrooms at Bishop Foley High School in the Oakland County city of Madison Heights. Some encounters reportedly took place in Macomb County.

    And yes, it appears to be a DB, but I'm going to appeal based on the additional charges.

    "If this was a male teacher who had been involved with a 15-year-old female, there would be people here hanging from the ceiling trying to get every drop of blood," Grant said. "But because it is a woman, there seems to be a winking about what happened."

    Not seeing the problem.

    Damn activist judge.

    What do you get when you combine a 6 with a 15-year-old?

    6-15 years in prison!

    Sounds harsh but hard to resist numerically.

    I don't know if this is a db, but that pic in post 1 makes it worthwhile. When you contrast it with the courtroom pic, well, my morning's been made.

    I later did a site search for the name and it appears she came up in several unrelated threads about others. She may not have earned one of her own.

    It is different. You know its different. I know its different. This woman is going to jail because of a need to treat everyone the same, rather than treat everyone as an individual.
