Normally, it seems, when a female teacher is caught with a male student, the penalty is not harsh. Jeri Deanne Perez, of Phoenix, was not so lucky. Ms. Perez, who was arrested in January and charged with three felony counts for engaging in sexual activity with a 14 year old, has been sentenced to ten years in prison, and lifetime probation. The boy was not one of her students, but was the son of one of her friends. Details here, but conflicting details in another story here.
