In January, Pamela Rogers Turner, 28, was indicted for sexual battery and statutory rape when she slept with a 13-year old boy while a resident at his home. Turner was a certified teacher at the time and a married woman. The mother of the teen says that Turner is a family friend and she hoped there would not be a trial. Turner pleaded no contest and will serve nine months in jail with eight years suspended on probation. Turner’s husband filed for divorce when she was indicted in January. I’m curious as to what the charges and consequences would had been had the gender of the perpetrator and victim been reversed.
Long Story Short
H.S. folks resurfacing; is it a sign? Strange calls in the night; bumped your head? J’Moo on vacation in Canada; getting married? Nah! Philippe in Chi-Town; art in the windy city. Men at work; some folks just insist on pooping where they eat; BTW: You ain’t slick and hint: Like the namesake, we don’t wanna know. Krissy taking steps to achieving the be-your-own-boss situation; keep on truckin’ Boo. Caspar to move to larger apartment; Co-op queen does it again.
You have a friend who continually makes the same f’ing mistakes over and over again. You refuse to give advice and feel it’s pointless to even talk about some of the recurring issues. The light bulb in your head tells you that you have grown and your friend – well, they’re just spinning their wheels in 1987. Should you simply discontinue this friendship or hang in there in the hopes that one day your friend will get with the program? Is creating distance in the relationship an option or do we run the danger of being sucked in?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
