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.

Donna Hoyt

Donna Jean Hoyt, 27-year-old woman from Johnstown, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to one to two years in prison for a sexual relationship she had with a 14-year-old boy who fathered her child.

Hoyt, mother-of-three, pleaded guilty last March to statutory sexual assault. Hoyt was living with her husband and children when she met the young boy. Her husband later suspected the affair and left her. The boy then moved into the apartment Hoyt was sharing with another family member. He and Hoyt then conceived a child who is now 2 years old.

The relationship continued for six months. Police began an investigation week after they were contacted by Cambria County Children and Youth Services.

Hoyt also was charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault and corruption of minors.

A prison sentence is appropriate for Hoyt, who has no prior criminal record, because she “took advantage of an impressionable young boy,” the judge said.

Emily Housley

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.
Housley, former North Side High School math teacher, who resigned in July 2009 after being caught in a Fort Worth park with the male student, was initially charged with sexual assault of a child under 17 and improper relationship between an educator and student.

The 16-year-old boy’s mother alerted police to the fact that her son had admitted to engaging in sex with Housley, a married mother-of-two. 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.
