Beth Friedman, 42, was convicted in Florida of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, because the boy she seduced claimed that after they met in a study skills class when he was only 14, she offered him gifts of alcohol and drugs in exchange for sex. Their affair lasted 18 months and Friedman's defense was that the alleged victim was extorting her for money by making up lies about her.

In the same state in 1998, Denise McBryde, 38, admitted to having sexual relations with a 15-year-old student she met at Florida College Academy, bringing him home and taking him to a motel.

But it's not just boys who are victims. Several female teachers have been caught having unlawful sexual contact with girls. Amy Gail Lilley, 36, got involved with a 15-year-old in Florida, receiving house arrest and eight years of probation. In Michigan, Elizabeth Miklosovic pled no contest to assault a 14-year-old girl, whom she apparently "married" in a pagan ceremony in 2004.
