PE.comAn English teacher at Beaumont High School has been jailed on accusations of sexual contact with one of her female students, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said; she’s the second teacher at the school to face sexual abuse allegations in the past two weeks. Christina Jacobson, 37, was arrested Monday in the La Cañada Flintridge area on suspicion of oral copulation with a person under 18 years old and sexual penetration with a foreign object and was booked into the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, according to jail records. Bail is set at $500,000. Authorities believe the alleged crimes happened at or near her Lake Arrowhead home. Another Beaumont High English teacher, Samantha Lee Ciotta, 32, of Banning, on Sept. 20 was arrested on suspicion of having sex with a student. She was released the next day on $150,000 bail. Jacobson, who used an alias of Chris Austin, was immediately put on administrative leave and then resigned the same day.
At Beaumont High school in California, an attractive teacher with a nose ring (nose rings do it for me) named Samantha Lee Ciotta was arrested, after it was discovered she was having sex with one of her male students. But there is a twist, during their investigation authorities uncovered that Christina Jacobson who uses the alias Chris Austin was also having sex with one of her female students, leading to two teachers being arrested for having sex with students at the same school just days apart. Obviously Samantha Lee Ciotta and Christina Jacobson knew each other, you have to wonder if they knew of each other’s behavior? Did Samantha Lee Ciotta rat out Christina Jacobson in exchange for leniency? Or did investors uncover te second offender during interviews with students? When a female teacher has sex with a male student, the public reaction is to laugh and call it a victimless crime, then make jokes like “where were these teachers when I was growing up?” or “I bet his shoulder is sore from all the high fives he got from classmates.” When a male teacher has sex with a female student, the public reaction is the much different “He is a monster. He took advantage of an underage girl and victimized her. Lock him up and throw away the key!” But what is the public reaction when a female teacher has sex with a female student? In reality, if it’s equality we are striving for, the reaction should be the same in all cases and no matter which genders are involved the crimes should carry the same sentence. The crazy thing is, this is not the first time we have seen one teacher getting arrested for having sex with a student lead to other teachers being arrested at the same school for similar crimes. In Louisiana, two teachers were arrested for having a drunken threesome with one of their students, and during an investigation it was discovered that another teacher at the same school was having a lesbian affair with a female student. I guess when one teacher is getting away with it, other teachers see a green light, and think they can get away with it too.
