Alabama teacher avoids jail on conviction for raping teen boy at school

An Alabama teacher won’t spend any time in jail despite admitting to raping a teenage boy at school.

Charlaina Wilson pleaded guilty May 3 to a felony charge of second-degree rape and a misdemeanor charge of providing material harmful to minors, and she agreed to a 10-year sentence with 14 months in confinement followed by five years of probation, reported AL.com.

However, she appeared Thursday in Dallas County Circuit for formal sentencing, and Judge Marvin Wiggins agreed to give the 35-year-old Wilson a sentence that essentially amounts to unsupervised probation.

Prosecutors called the revised sentence “outrageous,” but the judge did not explain his decision.

Wilson, who also goes by the name Charlaina Morales Garcia, was arrested in September 2016 on a variety of charges after police learned of a sexually explicit video circulating among students at Selma High School.

The woman in the video, later identified as Wilson, was committing what police described as a solo sex act.

A 15-year-old boy at the school said the agri-business teacher sent the video to him, and he shared the video with other students.

The teen told police that Wilson had sent him text messages while he was a student in her class, and she eventually began sending sexually explicit texts and then videos.

That led to two sexual encounters, the teen said — one in a boys’ restroom at the high school and another while on a field trip.

Wilson admitted taking the nude videos and sending them to the boy, which she said he requested.

She admitted to engaging in two sexual encounters with the teen, according to police.

Prosecutors said the teen’s family was “outraged,” and prosecutors intend to appeal the sentence.

On Sunday morning House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Mike Murphy (R-OH) attempted to blow off questions by CNN's Jake Tapper over whether President Donald Trump was trying to intimidate former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch with a tweet during her testimony, choosing instead to attack committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for wanting to impeach the president.

Following a long interview where the State of the Union host had to correct the Ohio Republican's assertions multiple times -- with Tapper once flatly stating "That's not true" -- the CNN host asked about Trump's tweets that were immediately characterized as witness intimidation.

We’re watching the same impeachment hearings, but seeing vastly different TV shows

Are we watching the same show?” Let me tell you, critics love this timeworn retort from readers or other media types who disagree with something they’ve said or written about a favorite episode or series.

Opinions are singular and can be based on observation, structural minutiae, or simple gut feeling. They’re neither right nor wrong, unless some element of that opinion is related to a false premise. Or, and this seems to be more likely to be the case now than ever, unless the person declaring that your opinion is incorrect – not debatable, simply wrong – is utterly convinced they, themselves, are right. Nothing can persuade them otherwise.

Iowans flocked to Trump in 2016. He betrayed them

Published

There has been no escape this week from the mainstream media’s wall-to-wall Trump impeachment drama. Yet while the media’s fixation on the Beltway crime wave makes for good television (and newsprint), there is scant attention being paid to the continuing slide of the economic circumstances of tens of millions of American families.
