    The judge "That's candy to a young man". So why did you sentence her, she should applauded for helping the young lad relieve tension.

    A former Lower Moreland High School teacher was sentenced Friday to 30 days in jail and 60 days of house arrest for having sex with a student.

    Erica Ann Ginnetti, 35, was an AP calculus teacher at Lower Moreland High School in 2013 when she had sex with a 17-year-old male student in 2013.

    Ginnetti cried in court Friday morning as she read a letter of apology and said she has repaired her relationship with her husband and children and built a new career as a fitness instructor.


    Judge Garrett D. Page said her remorse did not lessen the seriousness of her crime.

    "One bad day because of sexual hunger has resulted in all this avalanche of harm," Page said.

    Ginnetti is one of several Philadelphia-area teachers to be charged with or convicted of sexual assault involving students in recent months.

    Crimes like Ginnetti's are serious because teachers are role models, and parents trust them to care for their children, Assistant District Attorney Sophia Polites said in court on Friday.

    "This case is about the trust that we as a society place on teachers and a betrayal of that trust," Polites said.

    Ginnetti approached the male student at a school dance and began flirting with him in the spring of 2013. The two communicated daily, exchanging messages, photos, and videos via cell phone.

    "That's candy to a young man," Page told her during the sentencing hearing in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court.

    Ginnetti and the teenager had sex in July 2013 in her car, in an industrial park along the border of Philadelphia and Lower Moreland.

    "I have learned that actions have consequences," Ginnetti told the judge.

    She can no longer be a teacher and now teaches fitness classes and volunteers at church. In court, she offered an apology to her former student as "closure to this nightmare."

    Ginnetti was fired from her teaching job after her arrest. She pleaded guilty in December to institutional sexual assault and disseminating sexually explicit materials.

    The maximum sentence she could have faced for the two crimes was seven to 14 years in prison.

    Her attorney, Marc Neff, asked for house arrest instead of prison time so that Ginnetti could be a mother to her three young children. He said she was a gifted math teacher who was passionate about her work. Dozens of letters were submitted to the judge on her behalf.

    Ginnetti will face three years of probation and must register as a sex offender.

    Polites, the prosecutor, said the victim and his family, who were not in the courtroom Friday, faced harassment in their small community and on social media. The victim's grades dropped during his senior year of high school, and in a letter to the judge he said he still struggles with social interactions.

    "He had a point in his life that was dark" for months after the crime and Ginnetti's arrest, Polites said.

    Page complemented Ginnetti's efforts for change her life but said she must spend some time in jail to reflect on what she did.

    "Life is not fair," Page said as he announced her sentence.

    "I don't believe you're a bad human being," he said. "You did a bad act. So I have to punish you."

    Fuck, I thought you meant 30 years! Yesterday there was a chick, I think you'd all say not guilty, who is facing decades in prison for sex with students.
    Makes me violently ill to see a young non violent young woman imprisoned with violent psychotic evil women who will make her life miserable.
    Yet the fucktard prosecutors and judges couldn't give a fuck. And all because she had consensual sex.
    Ya know, all of these teen boys who were "molested" and "raped" by these broads would all get tried/sentenced as adults if they killed someone, yet they can't choose who they wanna fuck because they were "children". Sickening.

    She looks hot to me. If I were 17 I would be dreaming about her, but if my son had this experience I would be pissed. What concerns me though is the reference to the victim and his family being ostracized/harassed on social media and in their community. Nothing like blaming the victim and unfortunately social media does not have some arbiter to stop this bullying of any kind, when people hide behind their avatars and the like.

    How is a willing 17 year old young man, either one year or just months, away from being 18 and able to go to war and kill people or be killed a victim here?

    First of all your argument hinges on the premise that a 17 year old can go and kill or be killed in the military, but that cannot happen without parent's legal and written consent, under the age of 18. Would you feel differently if this boy's parents gave consent to the teacher to bang their son at the age of 17? Either way, such a condition does not exist.
    If the law said unless you are a month or two or three months away from your eighteenth birthday, fine, but that is not what society has decided in designing the law. What if she were a psychotherapist and exploited the relationship she had with a patient under 18? There has to be a measure, however difficult to determine, as to what constitutes the crime. In this instance, there is an assumption of trust between parents and students who are minors, that their child will not be sexually exploited when attending classes. It is the abuse of her power as a trusted and licensed teacher that creates this victim. She could cheat on her husband and family by walking into any bar in America and picking up anyone over 18 and this is a non story...but not her student. She exercised very poor judgment and this boy and his family are dealing with her destructive and criminal decision.

    But just saying "it's the law" doesn't mean it's right... attractive teachers who have sex with their students and the students willingly doing it are not violent criminals who must be locked away from society. At worst, they have horrible decision making abilities. Putting them in jail doesn't fix anything.

    The judge talks about the harassment the family of the victim suffered - that's not the teachers fault, it's the parents fault for making their son look like a gigantic pussy. And the 17 year old male claiming he has trouble with social interactions? First I bet he wrote that letter rather than telling his mom "Sorry mom, I like pussy! I love to fuck! The teacher has a great snatch and I wanted to dump loads on her!" - who would say that to their mom @ 17yo? So he's playing into Mom's viewpoint that he is a victim.

    I was having sex already when I was 17 and it felt great, boosted my confidence and eased the way into adulthood. Not to mention I don't know many guys who can get a hardon when they are scared, unattracted to a woman and just want to GTFO of the situation. Nah, the dude was into it and wanted it. And I bet this teacher wasn't his first.

    Actually I said/meant that he'll be 18 in months or at most a year at which point he could THEN go to war and kill or be killed, not now.
    I don't care what the law says though... if a 17 year old boy wants to fuck an older woman that's his business. Nobody said this guy was sexually exploited. She didn't rape him, he consented.
    So how is this guy dealing w/ her "destructive and criminal decision"? Is he home curled up in bed crying? Does he need years of retarded psychotherapy to get over his joy of fucking this broad? At most he's probably getting high fived by his friends. His parents are the ones making him feel like he was raped and like something horrible happened.

    I also don't understand why all of these woman are fucking these students rather than go out and find an bit older guy. It really is baffling. And yes, ideally a student should be in class to learn, but I just don't see this as a big deal. If my gym teacher would have come on to me and more in HS I'd have been thrilled.

    If he fucks a not-so-hot teacher, then I would say he is no different than any other horny guy who has taken home a pig or two when he was hard up for sex. Unless the teacher made him watch porn to get hard and jumped on his boner before it had time to go down, then the kid is into it - no matter what the teacher looks like.

    As for knocking her up... no different than knocking up a 17yo girl in school. A 17 year old doesn't have a job so the woman isn't going to be getting any child support and not likely to get any help raising the kid. Same with diseases.. no difference between a 27 year old teacher and a 17 year old girl in his grade, IMO.
