Marquita Alston, 24, was a teacher at Pearl-Cohn Entertainment Magnet High School who pleaded guilty to five counts of statutory rape with five different 17-year old boys, including encounters on school property. What is very surprising is that five counts of statutory rape by a teacher results in no jail time and only five years of probation.
Alston will have to register as a sex offender and undergo treatment.
The boys were close to the age of consent but the position as a teacher would normally warrant jail time.
What do you think?
