Debra Lafave Arrested Again: "The former teacher, who had sex with a 14 year-old student, Debra Lafave (26) was arrested Tuesday morning after violating her probation. Lafave was arrested for discussing sex and other topics with a 17 year-old waitress she worked with when her probation prohibited any contact with minors. Lafave is serving three years of house arrest and seven years of probation after pleading guilty to having sex with the boy in a classroom and her home in June 2004. A man would have received a life sentence. Her defense attorney he plans to ask a judge to convert the final year of her probation to straight probation, which is less restrictive. Does that even make sense? Lafave pleaded guilty to two counts of lewd and lascivious battery in November 2005. She could face up to 15 years in prison for a probation violation. Lock this sex offender up for life like any man would be. She raped a 14 year-old boy repeatedly then bragged about it. Stop the legal double standard. Lafave will do it again."


While I'm normally rather unrelenting when it comes to child exploitation of any kind, this new case is ridiculous.

Those on parole are normally expected to report employment changes to the parole officer, especially while under house arrest. Since officials in this case were aware of Debra's employment, part of the blame belongs to them. Maybe all of it.

Just about everyone knows that restaurants regularly recruit teenagers to staff their establishments. How does one work side by side with a minor without establishing contact?

Restauraunt employees are expected to communicate and work as a team. Waitresses, hostesses, kitchen employees and management are always communicating with each other in order to expedite hot food and cleanliness expectations of the customer.

This case is a sham, as it would appear at this point that parole officials are either dumber than a rock, unrealistic in their expectations, or simply fell asleep at the wheel.

The Parole Officer could have rejected this employment arrangement altogether, knowing that contact with minors was an unrealistic expectation of this kind of employment. Instead, thousands upon thousands of tax dollars will be spent prosecuting a case where the arrangements were dubious from the start.
