DailyMail A 22-year-old former teacher’s aide in Allen, a suburb of Dallas, pleaded guilty this week to a second-degree felony charge of having an improper relationship with a 16-year-old female student in 2014. Kearney Day was 20 and working at Allen High School when she began a relationship with the unnamed student there. Ultimately, the student told police, they ended up having sex ‘multiple times’ while her parents were out on Valentine’s Day. She also told authorities she considered Day to be her girlfriend, The Dallas Morning News reported. The allegations came to light in April 2014, when the girl told her principal about the relationship. Day was fired soon after, on April 4. The girl said that the relationship began in January that year, and that the two would communicate using the chat app Kik. One Kik message from Day later retrieved by police read ‘Mm I want you,’ the paper reported in 2014. Another read ‘I’m about to lose my goddamn job over this… Keep your mouth shut about me. So much for being able to trust you to in the beginning idek [sic] if ill [sic] be able to talk to you in the hallway now cause someone’s spying on my [expletive].’ The student also showed school officials an image of Day in her bed that she said was taken on a Valentine’s Day sleepover. However, according to the 2014 affidavit, when initially questioned by police, ‘She stated that if something sexual had taken place that she would not tell police about it because she would not “ruin Day’s life.”‘ Day told police that she sent the Kik messages, but denied having sex with the student, saying she had only hugged the girl and given her a ‘back rub.’ But on May 8, 2014, the girl spoke to police again and said that she hadn’t told all the details before because she thought she loved Day, but now wanted to put it all behind her. She then said they had sex ‘multiple times’ during their Valentine’s Day sleep-over. Day was arrested on May 9, 2014 and released on $10,000 bond after after agreeing not to have any contact whatsoever with either the student or anyone else under the age of 17. She was scheduled to start trial on Monday, but took the prosecutors’ plea agreement. She was given four years’ probation, a $500 fine and 120 hours of community service. She is also forbidden from having unsupervised contact with children, according to the court docket. In exchange for her guilty plea, prosecutors dropped eight other counts, including charges of sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child with sexual contact.
We see a lot of stories about male high school students banging their teachers, but a female teacher sleeping with a female student is more rare, although it was happening at that one crazy Louisiana high school where every teacher seemed to be sleeping with students. When you hear about a female teacher having sex with a male student you say “nice! He must have been the most popular kid in school the next day. Where were this teachers when I was in school?” When you hear about a female teacher having sex with a female student, you say “sounds like the plot of a lesbian porno I just watched.” When you hear about a male teacher having sex with a female student you say “Child molester! Lock that bastard up and throw away the key!” In reality, they are all by law child molesters, and should be punished equally.
