Charges Against Lafave Are Dropped

I just can't sit here and think that that is what's best for the victem. She admitted to it so I don't see any need for him to testify. This woman committed a crime and she should have to pay for it. Period! WorldNetDaily

In a case followed nationwide, Florida prosecutors dropped charges against former Tampa teacher Debra Lafave, who admitted having sex with a 14-year-old middle school student.

The boy's mother, along with prosecutors and defense attorneys wanted to avoid public trial for the sake of her son, the Associated Press reported.

The victim has suffered extreme anxiety from the media attention, a psychiatrist previously told Marion County Circuit Judge Hale Stancil.

The decision to drop charges came after the judge rejected a plea deal that would have meant no prison time for Lafave. The judge said the agreement, with no prison time, "shocks the conscience of this court."

I do like the judge in this case and have no fault with him.
