The Story of the Week

bilde

Maybe its because it is late on a Friday night and I have stayed in to get ready for the Casting Call tomorrow. Or maybe it is because it has been another slow news week in UK sports. But whatever the reason, the news today that Dupont Manual biology teacher Carrie Shafer pled guilty today to charges stemming from her “relationship” with a 17 year old student was clearly the story of the day to me. As outlined in this story on WLKY, Shafer was charged with custodial interference after she was found in a car with a student in a Jefferson County park earlier this year.

According to the police report, Shager (who is 39 and every high school boy’s dream) was found with her 17 year old male student, partially undressed in a car, with alcohol and a used condom outside the vehicle. She pleaded guilty to a three-year sentence, but was placed on diversion, meaning she will not have to serve any time. She will be unable to teach again for the next three years, but practically speaking, she will never find a teach job again.

Now a couple of quick thoughts immediately come to mind. First and most importantly, WHERE WERE THESE TEACHERS WHEN I WENT TO SCHOOL? Now I am not even talking here about teachers that would have relationships with students…a 22 year age difference with a high school student is too much for even the most wild cougar on the prowl. But I am more focused on the question of where were the teachers who looked like this in my high school days? In all of my years of high school, which included multiple trips to various other schools for basketball games, tennis matches, etc, I dont ever remember seeing a teacher that looked like Shafer. But it seems we now have these stories every few weeks. Are gorgeous women now becoming teachers or are the teachers we have just becoming more beautiful? Inquiring minds want to know.

But I also wonder, what happens to Shafer now? What does she do? She can’t teach, so does she get another career? Does she stay in the area? Does she move? Does she go patrolling the Bardstown Road Qdoba for a new boyfriend? Her story is fascinating and I wish her the best. And as for the 17 year old, dont cry for him. He was, I am sure, officially the coolest Senior at Dupont Manual High School and the lingering effects will not ruin his future existence.

    i saw this earlier. frankly i don’t understand where is the wrongdoing in this case under the law?? she should be fired obviously but i think there’s worse things that a teacher could do…

    my friend that went to Manual said he had her class when she was a TA in 2001 – she must have been hottern’ hell back then! i watched the courtroom video on CJ website and she doesn’t look as good, weird nose job. still pretty amazzing for a teacher i must say though.

    This is wrong. I do feel sorry for the boy, as he was taken advantage of. Let us, for the sake of argument, make the teacher a 39 year old dude and a victim a 17 year old girl. Is she now the ‘senior at the school?’

    I don’t understand the “Then don’t read it” statement in response to someone’s disapproval of this post. This site was founded on the expression of opposing viewpoints an various issues. What if every sports writer that was ever disagreed with by the writers on this site responded with “Then don’t read it”? Also, by this logic you shouldn’t read something with which you don’t agree but how is one to supposed know that they don’t agree with what is written if they have not read it.

    I’m not condoning this at all, but unless KY laws have changed, 16 is the legal age in this state. The fact that the guy was 17 and a minor doesn’t matter. The problem is that she was a teacher in a position of authority and he is a student at the school. I’m not A similar thing happened at my high school a few years ago, but things may have changed since then.

    #23, I dont mind valid criticism…Matt you think this and I think that, etc. What is annoying and what we dont promote, are people who come on and just write the equivalent of “this sucks”. And saying “some stupid stuff here” is not a valid criticism, but it is just hate. Add to that the fact that the poster is one who posts similar things often on the site and that was the point of my “dont read it.”

    Free expression of thoughts is fine. Coming on just to tell people they suck and cant write is not fine.

    Happened down here in the Nashville area a couple of years ago, except the teacher was much younger and much freaking hotter…like Playboy hot…my question is that these women are attractive enough to have any man that they want, so what is attractive about an adolescent kid? I mean, I thought women were supposed to be different than men, and the “emotional” crap and all of that…who knows

    16. How can you say the boy was taken advantage of?!?!? He is SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD. He should be smart enough at that age to know right from wrong. Don’t tell me that your old ass wouldn’t have wanted the hot teacher when you were in school. I don’t know about Kentucky law, but in Indiana if this happened, and the boy is 17 and agreed to it, there would be no problem other than what the school would want to do with her. Congrats to the dude. I am sure he enjoyed it, I know I would. Stop looking through your old person glasses, this happens all the time. They just got caught.

    Also, lay off Matt a little, he was just posting this, 1. because it’s funny, and 2. who doesn’t want to look at a hot teacher? I wish my professors looked more like this. Saying a post sucks makes you look childish.

    Every kid in the school knew it was going out… and he had a girlfriend actually of high school age at Manual at the time. Had to be hell for her.

I used to teach at the school where her kids go to school and she was always very nice. Her kids are wonderful children and I just hope that they get the help that they will need in the near futue. Her husband is also a very nice guy…just makes you wonder how well you really know people.

    While i can empathize about those who say it would be different if it were reversed – a make teacher and female student. It would be different. i think alot of the difference is betwenn a 17 year-old boys and 17 year-old girls and how they se things.

    My view is probably colored by experience though. When i was about 17, I was seeing a bery attractive woman in her mid-thirties. While she wasn’t a teacher, i learned a lot from her. She taught me a lot about how to treat women and what they wanted in a lot ways. I always took it as positive and the only lasting effect I ever noticed was a tendancy to return to Cougartown once in a while over the years.

She would not give me the time of day…THEN shortly after I graduated I ran into her at the local grocery store. She came on to me BIG TIME.

The lady I was with was not married and we kept in touch for years. Never noticed any negative effects on either side. Like I said, I believe thre’s adifference between how a 17 year old boy processes it an a 17 year old girl. You don’t like it? i’ll live.

    A lot of jokes, a lot of opinions. Seems to be the law is the real offender. It is scary that she could have been incarcerated and tried as a criminal at the discretion of the prosecuting attorney. But even though this women will get a pass on jail time she will likely be added to the “public list of the scorned” as a sex offender, while he will be paraded as a hero. And the law will march on in defiance supported only by a radical few whom make themselves vocally present in these matters, while our Legislators will avoid the subject despite the injustice.

    Matt, you are a grown man who understands that such Beavis humor about this situation is in poor taste. If you need me to explain the “counterpoint” that would really surprise me. Rather, you take the defensive self righteous approach. I understand wanting to be cutting edge AND wanting to get your Internet hits, but I really think that you have created something here that can be better than you offer in this post. This does not read like someone who understands the criminal justice system or is sensitive to victims, all involved. The fact that a Manual student tells me this post is crass and juvenile, I think, is telling. Just think about, that is all I ask.

    We’ve been laughing about this one in Louisville for a while now. Everything about this story is hilarious. From the fact that she was involved with the fellowship of christian athletes, to the fact that the kid was in her anatomy class, to that fact she was also a Biology teacher and threw the condom out the window of her car in the park (littering = bad for enviornment. Shouldn’t she know that?), to the fact that she was married to one of the BEST young neurosurgeons in the state. And a friend of mine knows the kid and he’s not even cool at all.

    First and foremost….the Alcohol involved is WAY WRONG…but saying that…it’s very VERY easy for a 17 yr old to get a “Drink” if they really want it…

    as for the “relationship”….who cares??!!?? it’s every boys dream to be with a “HOT” teacher….he is 17 flipping years old!! The boy knows what he is doing….he is 100% legal age…

    to adults…have sex….Big deal….

    There were atleast 3 teachers in my High School….that…well…um…err….”educated” the student body….while I was in High School….

    and Matt….as for you….

    You went to school where…Bell County?? Middlesborough??….need I say more as to why there weren’t hot teachers….

    Rockcastle, Laurel, Pulaski, Madison….they had some nice teachers back in the day…. 😉

    if this were turned around, and it was a male teacher with a female student, he would get 20 years, rightfully so! my point is this sicko deserves what a male would get, at least 20 years! its a serious crime! to give her no time is a joke, and proves our judicial system is pathetic!!!

    I just graduated from Manual 2 days ago, the kid was actually a junior, not a senior, and is a complete tool (looserville fan). He bragged about it a lot, as he should, so theres no reason to feel bad for him, he knew what he was doing.

    Agreed. I knew several sorostitutes that went from doing ATM at 4AM to an 8AM student teaching assignment. Careers do not discriminate…freaks are freaks and god bless them for it.

    Lucky guy… that teacher is pretty hot.

    I have to admit if you flip the genders it goes from “lucky guy” to “pedophile”…

    Shafer’s husband has to feel like all the other rich tools out there with trophy wives banging younger dudes.

    Awesome story Matt the picture says it all
