A 16-year-old male student of a Plano, Texas, high school handed in a test paper to his teacher with his Snapchat username on it instead of his name. Surprisingly this worked as 23-year-old Alaina Danielle Ferguson was arrested for allegedly having sex with the student. I’m just as shocked as you are that this didn’t happen in Florida.
The Snapchat exchanges allegedly led to games of beer pong, sex on park benches and eventually to sex in her fiancée’s apartment in McKinney, Texas.
Ferguson only had her job at the school district a few months before resigning amid her arrest. She was also able to post the $100,000 bond she was being held for, on a teacher’s salary no less.
Another teacher, another case of Snapchat leading to sexual charges against children and it seems the female teachers are disproportionately assaulting their students more frequently than their male counterparts. Which brings us to the old argument of the troglodytes who say ‘I wish I had teachers like this when I was their age’ before high-fiving the same guys they hung out with in high school at the BW3 in the same town that they’ve never left.
A female teacher having sex (child rape) with a male student is just as damaging as it is if the gender roles were reversed. Let this be another reason for parents to not only be more aware of what their kids are doing on social media but to also keep their devices in your possession at night. It’s not just your daughters that you have to worry about it when it comes to inappropriate advances from teachers.
UPDATE 12/7/2016: This is kind of a gossipy update but Ferguson has reportedly broken off her engagement.
