Every day abroad, a scandal of sordid relations between teachers and students is added. A 35-year-old woman who worked as an English teacher at a US high school has admitted to having sex with a 17-year-old student. The student, who has not been named, admitted to authorities that he fell in love with his teacher.
Abby Dibbs, 35, appeared before a judge on sexual assault charges after admitting to having sex with her student twice at her home over the weekend.
The woman, who was immediately cut off from the school after the scandal emerged, faces up to 12 years in prison.
According to the criminal complaint, the 17-year-old student confirmed an inappropriate relationship with her teacher and said she fell in love with Dibbs, 35.
The Portage High School senior, whose name is not being withheld by law, said he was “very angry with the person who ratted out” his relationship with the perverted teacher.
Court records show the 17-year-old’s mother said she was happy the person who reported the inappropriate relationship did the right thing.
Dibbs was released on $3,500 bail under conditions that prevented him from contacting the unnamed 17-year-old, said he had not unsupervised contact with other children other than his own, and banned him from entering Portage High School.
