High school student dating teacher
Adrian Mc Conney, then a 36-year-old girls' soccer coach, was arrested in April 2013 after police determined he had sex with the student two months earlier. In February 2014, Superior Court Judge Bradley Ferencz dismissed the indictment, ruling the relationship did not violate any law because the student was 18.Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey appealed the decision.“I feel differently about seventeen-year-olds than I do about eighteen-year-olds,” Giddings said at the time.
"Teachers stand as surrogate parents during the day (and should be) educating, not endangering, and protecting, not exploiting vulnerable children," the appellate judges wrote in deciding the prosecutor had met his burden in charging official misconduct.
Amena Nazam-Khan, 36, who taught at Tong High School in Bradford, used Facebook and a mobile phone app to sext the schoolboy and send naked pictures of herself.
Calling herself 'Baby', she invited him to her home where they had sex, a misconduct panel said.
"A teacher had sex with a public school student," Carey said after Ferencz's ruling.
"This conduct, as determined by our Legislature, is illegal." On Friday, the state Appellate Division agreed with the prosecutor.
