NYDailyNews A disgraced former high school teacher may face no jail time for having a sexual relationship with a student. According to the East Bay Times, Corine Audiat, who pleaded no contest to having unlawful sex with an underage student, struck a deal with the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office in December. The deal required that she plead no contest to two felony charges in exchange for the dismissal of five additional charges, court records obtained by the outlet revealed. Audiat, 32, will be placed on probation and could face other penalties as a result of her admission of guilt, District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Teresa Drenick said. The former Washington High School teacher was arrested near the end of 2016. The East Bay Times reported that in the plea deal, which was announced on Dec. 19, Audiat did not deny charges of having unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor or oral copulation of a person under 18. Both charges are felonies. Four other felony charges, which included three counts of contacting a minor for sex and one count of sending harmful material to a minor with sexual intent, as well as a misdemeanor child molestation charge were dropped. Sentencing for Audiat has been set for Feb. 9. As part of her plea deal, there is a chance the former teacher could serve 180 days in county jail. The judge could, however, allow her to serve that time outside of jail with an electronic monitoring device. Audiat is also facing three to five years of probation and will have to register as a sex offender in California and give up her teaching credential. According to the East Bay Times, she’ll be expected to complete 150 hours of community service, turn in DNA samples to law enforcement officials, avoid her victim for 10 years and complete a full year of sex offender counseling, per the details of the plea deal.
We here at SportSmasher.com have been documenting all of the female teachers who have been arrested over the last few years for having sex with their students, and some of these female teachers received as much as 20 years in jail for their crimes, so we were very surprised that 32-year-old California gym teacher Corine Audiat will serve no jail time as part of a plea deal after admitting to having sex with students. If the law is serious about stopping teachers from having sex with students, the penalty needs to be much more severe, no jail time is not going to scare any other teachers who are considering having sex with their students straight. Nice job, California, this is essentially letting a pedophile walk free.
