Anything is possible, but I'm inclined to disbelieve the accusations. We've created a culture of blind belief regarding accusations of rape, but it is one of the most (if not the most) falsely level accusations. Maybe she was caught in a lesbian relationship and embarrassed so bam, rape accusation. Maybe the accuser was just angry at the teacher for making her run or something. That's the power you hand someone when there's such a strong demand to act as if every accusation of rape is automatically true.

"Blind belief!" Look at these comments. Nearly everyone here is ready to send this teacher back to work and blames the alleged victim. We have a culture of victim blaming when it comes to sexual assault.

They may be almost the same age, but for any teacher of any gender to get involved with a student and minor is pure stupidity. I hope that it turns out to be otherwise but I suspect this woman's teaching career is over.

Plus she has the "sex offender" label that follows her for life. Hard to get a job, any job and she is limited in where she can live. Can't be too close to where children live.

This is one case I'll be very interested in following. Something just doesn't seem right here!

I guess all the facts will come out in time. Yes, as a teacher, she abused her authority and has to answer for that, although the victim in question is 17. But what I don't get is: a young lady as attractive as her can walk into any bar --- gay or straight -- and have no trouble finding someone. For that matter, she could go on-line and meet whomever. But going after a student is like a boss having an affair with a subordinate; you just don't do it.

Kiss your arrest record goodbye and now you're a sex offender for the rest of your life. Yikes. All these public officials that do stuff like this and never think they'll be caught. Dummies.

Evidence. Let's see some evidence before we go jumping
onto the band wagon. Women lie, men lie, children lie.
Let's see some evidence.

"OBJECT RAPE & FORCIBLE SEXUAL ASSAULT"

These allegations if true make her a monster. She was the TEACHER.

Women, when committing rape against other women, or especially when committing sexual assault against female children (I'm talking younger kids, not teens) often use forcible object penetration, often doing permanent damage. :-(

This stuff is unreal.  TEACHERS!

I realize that teachers start their careers while they are young, but a 22 year old teaching 17 or 18 year old kids... She is just a kid herself.

Sounds to me like the 17 y/o student was pretty mad at Jarrell for something and found out a good way to get her back by getting her arrested for rape. Unfortunately, we see this a lot. I'd like to see the proof before we start judging Jarrell. This is just an accusation. Seems odd that everybody loved her. Even the parents.

Funny how the beginning of your comment judges the validity of the accusation and finishes with we need to see to see the evidence before judging.

Yes, it seems the teacher was well liked, but it also seemed enough people had no problem believing the student. I wonder how many times that 17 year old let the teacher in her home.

Who is to say this child isnt pissed off at her and being vengeful? Maybe this student didnt get to play in the big game... without all the facts its hard to judge... but by all means IF she did it, the only thing she should be able to see is the end of a shot gun!

Female teachers have been accused of rape countless times before but they were always raping boys. This is the first time I've heard of a female teacher raping a girl. In previous instances I'd question why an attractive female would feel compelled to take such a risk by breaking the law as opposed to meeting, dating and having sex with an adult. In fact, I'm sure there'd be p-lenty of guys who'd just want to get laid and leave it at that. Some of the responses I got indicated that the women preferred young boys because they had control over them and they'd be able to have them do what she wanted in bed. Does this apply here as well? I mean, exactly how much can you manipulate a girl in a lesbian sex act? Seems strange to me.

As a gay female there is a lot more you can do than people think. I am not going to into details but there is plenty of stuff to do.

Well, I wouldn't mind perusing the handbook, if you know what I mean. It does come with pictures, right?

If you respond with an essay, I'll never read it.

Are you serious? You don't need male genitalia to rape. I hope you won't be on the jury.

If you're talking about inanimate objects you're right but then again that would be sodomy. As far as lesbian sex, which this case entails, it's obvious that lesbians have sex, I'm just not sure how a woman rapes another woman. It just seems strange to me.

What a waste of education and opportunity to teach young minds. What happens to some of these people? How do they get through a college workload for a degree in education and still not know right from wrong after attending and getting that degree?

She's a blonde. I hope its not true.
