This teacher is arguing they are…
Witt’s attorneys, Robert Tuten and Nick Heatherly, argue teachers’ 14th Amendment equal protection rights are being violated by the state law that was created in 2010. The law treats teachers and other school employees differently from other citizens, the attorneys argue in court records.
Other adults having consensual sex with 16-year-olds do not face criminal prosecution, Heatherly and Tuten argue. The law prohibits any school employees from having sex with students who are younger than 19. If teachers or other school employees violate the law, they can be charged with a Class B felony that carries a punishment up to 20 years imprisonment. The law also requires they register as sex offenders if convicted.
Watch out, kids.
