    After nailing three boys, she's worried about her marriage.

    “She’s never been incarcerated before,” he said. “She never been behind a jail cell. She’s never been arrested. She’s embarrassed. She’s humiliated.”

    Pilgrim said his client is also worried about whether she’ll have custody of her children from this point forward.

    “She is married,” he said. “The outlook on that marriage is not great so she’s not doing very well at all. I would like to see a preliminary hearing hopefully sometime this week. ... I would like to have my client granted bond and get her out of the Carroll County Jail where she doesn’t belong.”

    Read a bit more on this. It apparently raises an issue with the Georgia State law. It says school employes "with authority over students" are forbidden to have sexual relations with the students. But her lawyer claims a school secretary has no authority over students. If the students are of the age of consent, what might be the problem?

    So if she'd given a student an order, that student wouldn't get in trouble for not complying?

    I think that's a solid strategy by her lawyer. Not sure if it will payoff with the desired end result, but it definitely brings some murkiness into the situation, when these are often crystal clear--adult teacher--sex--under age student.

    And I think it's a real prickish move by the court to deny bond. Judge must not have been laid in a while.

    Whatever you may think of the crime, it's nowhere severe enough to merit remand.

    She is an adult in a school. She has some authority.

    Can she write a referral on a student? Yes.

    When this source is the voice of reason in a thread, you know things are bad.

    Slap the lock on this and move on.

    The secretaries in my school couldn't do crap. All they could do was call the students to the office on the PA.
