Candice Pianka guilty of sexually abusing girl

Candice Renee Pianka, 30-year-old woman from Salisbury, Maryland, has been convicted on charges of sex offense, sex abuse of a minor, assault and contributing to the condition of a child.
Pianka and the victim had a discussion that turned to boys and sex during a car ride on May 15 2010, according to testimony from the victim during the trial. The teen told jurors Pianka accused of her of flirting with older men at the barbeque. "She told me I was too sexually active at my age," said the victim. "She told me I could get rid of the urge with masturbation."

The teen testified the discussion made her uncomfortable. She became scared, confused and anxious when Pianka entered her room with the sex toy later that night. First Pianka did lay nude on a 13-year-old's bed and demonstrated how to use a sexual vibrator before attempting to use the adult toy on the teen girl. After using the vibrator on herself and the victim, Pianka told the teen to keep the incident a secret. She didn't want to lose her job or custody of her children.
Pianka was taken into police custody May 19 and was held at the Wicomico County Detention Center on a $500,000 bond.Her two youngest children were placed in the care of family members and as of May or June, she was no longer employed by Wicomico County public schools.
Pianka testified that she demonstrated how to use the sex toy at the victim's request and the situation got "out of hand." 
Pianka told in court that she wanted to spare a teenage girl from the harsh reality of becoming a young mother. She didn't want the victim to have to endure the hardships that she encountered when she had a child at age 18. "I just wanted her to have some other ways to satisfy her sexual desires ... it was supposed to be educational," said the soft-spoken mother of three while testifying from the witness stand.

KY Mother Sentenced for Sex Relationship with Teen Boy

Beulah Nicole “Nikki” Sumner, 36-year-old teacher formerly at Warren East High School, Warren County, Kentucky, has been sentenced to six years in prison and was ordered to register as a sexoffender for 20 years.
Sumner plead guilty last July to six counts of first degree sexual abuse – the counts stem from her consensual sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student at Warren East High School.
Sumner had admitted the sexual relationship to the Bowling Green Police Department, stating to a detective that she and the student had intercourse in a motel room in Bowling Green and engaged in kissing and touching to the point of sex in her car on other occasions.
Sumner also provided a cell phone to the student, and sent sexually explicit text messages to the teenager on that phone.
Warren County Commonwealth’s Attorney Chris Cohron argued that Sumner’s actions were a repeated violation of trust by someone in a position of authority at the school.
Since getting caught for sexual relationship with the young boy, Beulah Sumner has divorced her husband and lost custody of her two children.

Emily Elizabeth Housley, 30-year-old woman from Fort Worth, Texas has been sentenced to seven years of probation after she pleading guilty to having sexual relationship with a 16-year-old male.

She pleaded guilty to engaging in an improper relationship between an educator and student, a second-degree felony. Under the terms of the plea agreement, a sexual assault charge was dropped.

According to detectives, Housley had been flirting with the boy since early this year, before he turned 16. By April 2009, after the boy had turned 16, the relationship evolved into sexual encounters — the first occurring inside Housley’s classroom after school hours. The sexual encounters continued — at the school, in Housley’s car, at her mother’s home, and at Housley’s Saginaw home when her husband and children were away, . After school let out for the summer, Housley met the teen at his Fort Worth house while he was alone. She was going to a teacher conference that was near his house, and she was going over there on her lunch breaks and having sex with him.

For the conviction, Judge Elizabeth Berry of Criminal District Court No. 3 sentenced Housley to seven years of probation and prohibited her from ever teaching again.The teaching prohibition does not include participating in activities at her own children’s schools, he said.

Ayala pleaded guilty to a felony lewd act with a child 14 or 15 years old, oral copulation with someone younger than 16, and unlawful sexual intercourse, according to court records. Under the terms of the plea deal with prosecutors, three of the same counts were dismissed.

Ayala was married with three children when she had the affair with the boy, who lived nearby. Ayala had been friends with the boy’s family and started inviting the victim to her house late at night in early 2009. Ayala was accused of having sex with the boy about two times a week between February and November 2009, according to Mestman. She gave birth to the boy’s daughter Nov. 21, 2009.

The boy’s mother grew suspicions when she found suggestive handwritten notes between the two and confronted her son, who admitted the relationship. The boy first had sex with Ayala, who had watched him grow up, before he graduated from elementary school.

The boy’s family has custody of the girl, but Ayala is battling for visitation rights.

Sheral Smith,

Sheral Smith, 39, was arrested in 2008 and is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old boy, who was a friend of her son. Prosecutors said Smith had sex with the boy at least four times. Yesterday she pleaded guilty to four counts of statutory rape.

After many delays Smith pleaded guilty after a competency hearing in Rankin County where a doctor testified she's been faking a mental illness. The judge sentenced Smith to 20 years with 13 suspended. After she serves seven years, she faces five years of supervised probation.

Smith must register as a sex offender and can have no contact with the victim or the victim's family. She still faces additional charges in Hinds County.

Smith was to stand trial on Tuesday. A competency hearing was held Monday for Smith, who was ordered last year by the court to undergo a psychiatric evaluation and has spent the past seven months at the Mississippi State Hospital at Whitfield, Guest said. While testifying during the hearing, Smith acted confused, had trouble recalling what year it was and said she couldn’t remember the victim, Guest said. A psychiatrist who had treated Smith testified that she was putting on an act and a judge ruled that Smith was competent to stand trial.

After the hearing, Smith’s attorney called the district attorney’s office and requested a plea agreement, Guest said. During the plea agreement hearing, Smith’s entire demeanor changed, Guest said. He described her as having a clear understanding of the proceedings and as being in control of herself.“You could tell she had a much different mental state than she had (Monday) morning, which indicated to the state that she was faking any kind of mental illness,” Guest said.

Matt Baldridge, an attorney with John Colette & Associates, legal counsel for Smith, said Monday the firm's client agreed pleading guilty was the best decision."Looking, at all of the evidence and at potential exposure, she decided it was in her best interest," Bald-ridge said. "We agreed with her to enter a guilty plea."

The relationship began in the summer of 2008. The victim was a student at New Summit School in northeast Jackson, where Sith worked briefly. The victim was also involved in athletic events with Sheral Smith's son, who is the same age.

Heather Zeo likes teen boys

Heather Zeo, former math teacher at North Penn High School, has been sentenced 23 months in jail at the county prison in Eagleville.
Zeo, 37,pleaded guilty to in May in Montgomery County Court to misdemeanor charges of corruption of minors in connection with incidents involving two boys in 2009. She admitted to having sex with the 17-year-old boy in the back of a minivan in a shopping center parking lot.

The former teacher, who is married and has three children, was fired from her job following her arrest last year and had conversations of a sexual nature with another teen boy. Zeo allegedly initiated the affair with the teenage boy by sending him a “friend request” from her Facebook page at the end of April 2009, according to court papers. Both boys were in her 11th grade homeroom class

The student involved in the affair allegedly “made out” with the woman a half-dozen times in her homeroom class, E-139, during the second and fourth periods when no one else was there, according to the affidavit.

During the second week of May 2009, Zeo and the teen arranged to meet at a shopping center. After rendezvousing in the parking lot in front of a vacant store at about 8:30 p.m., the teacher invited the student into her minivan. Once inside, the two sat on a rear bench seat, kissing and fondling one another for about a half-hour, then split up and went home, authorities allege. The two arranged a second meeting via Facebook a few days later and again rendezvoused at the shopping center. During sexual foreplay, Zeo offered the teen a condom and they had sexual intercourse. She reportedly retrieved the condom afterward and put it in a grocery bag.
