38-Year-Old Alabama Teacher Charged With Rape Of Student

Public schools across the United States are closed for the winter holidays, but apparently not all teachers are done seeing their students.

Amanda Watkins, a 38-year-old mother and teacher at Sheffield Jr. High School in Alabama, has been arrested on second degree rape charges.  According to the Shoals Insider, Ms. Watkins was discovered Saturday night by the police in a vehicle parked near the Covenant Christian school, off of Hwy. 43 in Muscle Shoals.

The officers responded to an alarm at the Christian school, and upon arrival they noticed a car with heavily fogged windows.  When the police approached the car, they discovered Ms. Watkins engaged in sexual activity with a 15-year-old African-American male.  It has now been confirmed the boy was in one of Ms. Watkins’ classes during the 2008 – 2009 school year.

Ms. Watkins has been placed on administrative leave from teaching 8th grade English and reading classes pending this investigation.  Although, it has been reported that Ms. Watkins has made a full confession, this has not yet been confirmed by an official source on the record.

She has been charged with sodomy and rape in the second degree, which is a class B felony and carries a sentence of 2-20 years imprisonment.  Upon her release she would be monitored and required to register as a sex offender.

Ms. Watkins has been released from jail on $15,000 bond.

These two now join the roll call of teacher sex scandals for 2009!

    This is nobody's business. To ruin this beautiful woman's life because she was attracted to a younger male is terrifying. And I think her husband, who is, shall we say, not hitting as much viagra as he should, is more at blame here.

      Amanda's life has suffered and will continue to. And her children's lives, but oone else's. Had her husband been more of a man it would never have happened. When a woman is ignored and her needs unmet over a long period of time, it begins to wear at her psychologically. Amanda was not herself; she was beat down in every way. Look at her – she's a very beautiful woman. She could have had anyone and so one wonders why she chose a teenager, but it's because she had her self-esteem destroyed by that simpering, impotent clod she still loved. Using the logic of a crushed soul, by having relations with teenagers, she was assuring that she wouldn't be very likely fall in love with a real man and break up her home.
      The teenager is boasting, he's a superstar. His life will be absolutely fine by the way.
      Lets agree that this was a mistake on Amanda's part. Her life is in tatters. Happy now?
