'Cool mom' gets 30 years for sex parties
It’s not a new phenomenon, I’m sure. We can look back to The Graduate for confirmation of that. I even have friends whose first sexual experience was with a much older woman. One friend lost his virginity at 12 with a 24-year-old babysitter. But the attention paid to the phenomenon seems new, especially with the seemingly monthly stories of a female teacher sleeping her male teenage students.
There’s certainly a double-standard when society looks at the adult-child pairing. A man seducing a Lolita is taking advantage of a young innocent girl. But a MILF seducing a teen boy gets a reaction that is part “huh?” toward the woman and “you lucky bastard!” toward the boy. Is that right or wrong? Do boys get as messed up by such a relationship as girls do?
The public’s attitude must be swinging toward “yes”, at least judging by this latest sentencing:
GOLDEN, Colorado (AP) — A woman who authorities said had sex with high school boys during alcohol- and drug-fueled parties has been sentenced to 30 years in prison, officials said.
She pleaded guilty in July to two misdemeanor counts of sexual assault and nine felony counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
She also was sentenced for additional charges of third-degree assault, violation of a restraining order and harassment for unrelated cases involving her husband and children, prosecution spokesman Carl Blesch said.
Authorities said Johnson held parties for the boys almost weekly between October 2003 and October 2004. They said Johnson provided drugs and alcohol to eight boys and had sex with five of them.
No word on whether that was all five at once. And you gotta feel for the other three boys. Imagine the teasing they’ll get because they couldn’t even get laid by the party mom. (Or, maybe those three just had better sense. And taste. Or they’re gay… not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
Thirty years? Does anyone else think this is a little excessive? Especially when you consider the average sentence served for rapists and murderers is less than half that?
