HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY -- Middle school teacher Stephanie Ragusa appeared in court again today after being charged with having sex with a minor.Damn, is this that bad an offense? You wouldn't take down the monkey bars or the swingset that the kids play with on recess, why would you put this woman in jail? She's servicing the playground. She's teaching the kids and well, teaching the kids sexual education. [Clipse]She's a legend in two games like Pee Wee Kirkland[/Clipse]. I know it's a double standard and that if it were a male teacher with a little girls the community would be chasing him down the street with pitchforks and brooms like Frankenstein but that's to me it's two vastly different things. If these little boys weren't getting it from this teacher they'd be harassing their female peers for it. This way, at least they satisfy their normal male curiosity and don't take away the innocence of the little girls who really ought to save it for as long as possible. Sometimes double standards are useful. This is one of those times. I'd be moved to violence if something like this went on at my niece's school, but if my nephew was doing work and not getting burned, ehhhhhhhh I think I would live.
She is being held without bond and will appear before a judge again on Friday morning for a bail revocation hearing.
According to reports, Ragusa was caught in the act with a boy she is accused of having sex with before.
This is the third time she has been arrested this year on these charges.
Ragusa reportedly went to the teen victim's house to discuss the criminal case against her and the two ended up having sex, according to the arrest affidavit.
Detectives arrested the 29-year-old just before 1 p.m. Monday.
Ragusa was first arrested on March 13th, for having sex with a 14-year-old boy.
She was arrested for a second time on April 15th for having sex with another student.
Ragusa was a teacher at Davidson Middle School, in Tampa.
Ragusa was charged last month after an investigation revealed that she had sex with a 15-year-old student while she was a teacher at Davidson Middle School between October 2006 and May 2007.
Investigators say she had sex with the student five times.
Deputies say the incidents began when the student was 14-years-old and continued until after his 15th birthday.
Officials say the victim was never a student of Ragusa and had met her while on the school campus.
By the way for those curious at home to how the chick looked, the three pictures I included in the post are of this chick. Not bad for a first kill for the little kid. The fact that she's smiling is telling, lol. All in all though, she doesn't look bad at all. I mean I haven't seen the kid or anything but I'm guessing the dude looked like Harry Potter or Dennis the Menace or some other pimple faced ugly student. You ask me, and that's just if you're asking, I'd say the kid, whoever that lucky soul is, overachieved. She looks like something some of my boys would be on the prowl for in the bar at last call. I'm not mad at ya, little boy. You gamed up a woman twice as old as you, better looking than you, had her coming back for more in the face of real jail time, had the girl grinning in her mugshots and the whole nation knows about your sexual exploits and conquests. I salute you.
