Why is it so difficult for some female teachers to resist having affair with their teen students? Just about 3 months ago, a female teacher, Victoria Delacio (51) had affair with her teen student. Another female teacher who goes by the name Mary Beth Haglin has confessed to making love with a 17-year-old student throughout most part of 2015-16 academic year.
Mary Beth Haglin, the former substitute teacher who called the whole ordeal “sobering” in an interview with KCRG, could face up to two years in prison for the immoral exploitation of a Cedar Rapids high school student.
She has however, turned herself in to police but she was released on her own recognizance following an initial appearance.
In the interview, she claimed that prior abusive relationships left her vulnerable to this kind of inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old student. Although, she admitted it was primarily her fault, but she gave most of the blame to the school who knew about it and did nothing to stop the relationship. In her own words:
“I do take responsibility. I’m not shying away from this. I’m facing this head on.” “These people all knew what was going on, and yet they turned a blind eye because they wanted to protect their school. They didn’t want it to get into the limelight.”
“They didn’t ban me,” Haglin told the Cedar Rapids Gazette. “They never actually said they were banning me from school grounds, they never said they were banning me from working at any other school. …They never said any of that.”
Haglin said she and the student who got involved both denied the relationship when questioned by school leaders at Washington High School last winter. But when someone posted a video of the two together in April, the school investigation picked up again. The case was then forwarded to the authorities.
Haglin said her relationship with the student continued even as the investigation was going on. She then added that it’s finished now.
“I no longer have a desire or wish to contact or see this person ever again. And I don’t want him to contact me.”
