TEACH WOMEN NOT TO RAPE! (CONT’D): Female Teachers: The Sex Offenders No One Suspects. “Women are given more lenient sentencing than men, says Shoop, who has served as a forensic expert in hundreds of sexual abuse cases in the U.S. ‘My experience has been that females get time served and probation, where men get 15 years for the same offence,’ he says. A 2012 University of Michigan study, ‘Estimating gender discrimination in federal criminal cases,’ found a gender divide in sentencing generally in the U.S.: men received 63 per cent longer sentences on average than women, and women were twice as likely to avoid incarceration if found guilty. Two decisions involving former Oregon high school teachers, found guilty of having sex with students earlier this year, bear this out. Denise Keesee, 39, received 30 days in jail and five years probation for two counts involving a 16-year-old male student. In another jurisdiction, 56-year-old Charles McLauchlin was sentenced to almost 10 years in prison for second-degree sexual abuse and online corruption of a minor involving a 16-year-old female student. . . . The trust accorded female teachers is precisely what allows them to offend.”
