I originally posted about Dionne Younce here. She’s the 28-year-old phys ed teacher from St. John’s County, Florida, who got suspended then fired for allegedly sending explicit Snapchats to some of the male students from her school. More recently Ms. Younce was arrested for allegedly having sex, still child rape in my opinion, with a 17-year-old male student. Age of consent in Florida is 18 and the 11-year-age gap is not covered by the poorly named Romeo and Juliet clause. It also sounds like St. John’s County is treating her like an actual criminal since she’s currently being held on $200K bond as they should.
This shouldn’t be treated any different if a male teacher had sex with a female student, As a society we need to move away from that bro mentality of “Heh heh heh, where were teachers like her when I was in school?” At least one local parent gets it…
“This day in social media, it’s kind of easy to do. But still, doing that with students?” Lodise said. “Obviously, it’s taking advantage of somebody who’s not mature enough to make those decisions; wise decisions.”
While some may not think that an act like this is victimization it could very well mess up kids like this emotionally and mentally when it comes to future relationships with women.
UPDATE 4/9/2016: Younce has entered a plea of not guilty.
UPDATE 9/9/2016: After pleading no contest, Younce was sentenced to a year behind bars and five years probation and will be on the sex offender registry as she should be.
UPDATE 2/27/2016: Younce has been arrested.
I’m going to level with you. Half of the reason I’m doing this story is because of the traffic it will generate to the site, however let me make it perfectly clear that so far no criminal charges have been filed.
28-year-old Dionne Younce is a high school phys ed teacher at a St. John’s County high school in Florida. She was recently suspended with pay for allegedly sending nude or suggestive Snapchats to some of the male students at her school. As of the time I’m writing this the ages of the students have not been made public but local police are conducting an investigation. Younce is not believed to have had any kind of sexual physical contact with the students in question.
The other reasons I’ve posted this story is because here we have another case of a teacher using Snapchat inappropriately with their students and the fact that since she’s young and reasonably attractive will she even be charged let alone see any kind of legal admonishment for her actions. I’m no woman hating neckbeard but this story has the potential to once again high light the double standard society has for female sexual predators. If this had been a male teacher he probably would have been arrested with extreme prejudice but since the alleged perpetrator is an attractive woman we have too many guys who think “I wish she could have been my teacher bro.” not unlike the case of Debra Lafave. Lafave was a young attractive Florida teacher who only got three years of house arrest for ‘having sex’ with a 14-year-old male student. If the gender roles had been reversed and a male teacher sent nude Snapchats to female students you’d be able to see all the pitchforks and torches looming over the horizon.
This one will be interesting to say the least.
UPDATE 2/20/2016: I’m a little late on this one but Ms. Younce has been fired by the St. Johns County school district. Still no criminal charges have been filed.
