Teacher charged with Unlawful Use of Computer to Lure a Child Not Convicted and Not Designated Sexual Offender with Reduced Char - Felonies and Misdemeanors
Female schoolteacher client was accused of trying to lure a male student via computer instant messaging. Although inappropriate sexual banter, the messages were not explicit and did not "lure" the student. My client was an upstanding woman in her community going through a difficult time in her marriage. After lengthy negotiations, the charge was reduced to Unlawful Use of a Communication Device. This prevented my client from being designated a "sexual offender" and saved her from a lifetime of rules, regulations, and harassment by neighbors. She was not convicted and was placed on probation.
