Poin Files: Ms. Portwood likes the young wood

    The teen said that teacher Saralyn Portwood started complimenting him earlier this year on his appearance and telling him he was handsome. She also would brush up against him, touch him inappropriately and send him texts, the affidavit stated. The student said during a forensic interview at the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County that he did not want to be involved with Portwood and told her so several times. “She persisted, and he did not know how or who to tell,” the affidavit states.

    One day the student was called into Portwood’s office, where she pushed him against a desk, pulled down his shorts and performed oral sex, according to the affidavit.

    When the teen told her he didn’t want to communicate with her, Portwood continued to text him and ask what was wrong and why he was treating her this way, the affidavit states.

    I honestly can't remember one that didn't involve a text.

    I really can't even imagine the conversation that ends with the teacher asking for the student's number in the first place.

    And why is the Daily Mail in the UK reporting this story out of Texas? Is this standard for them?
  9. Yes.
    They are all over the Poin files.
    And Death Penalty stories.
