West Virginia – A teacher who had sex with two of her students and after plying them with drink and drugs has been jailed for two years. Sarah Rutherford took a plea deal to avoid a lengthier sentence and agreed never to teach in a classroom again. The 23-year-old had pleaded guilty to one count of misdemeanor battery and two counts of misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor … taught at the Philip Barbour High School in Philippi, West Virginia, when she became involved with two students aged under 18. Court records show that she gave the teens alcohol and marijuana during their sexual trysts… [T]he teacher began text messaging one of the teens and invited him to her home in Barbour County, where they had sex… Rutherford allegedly became involved with another student younger than 18 by initiating contact with the victim at the school to ‘solicit a relationship.’ The criminal complaint said Rutherford and the second victim had daily contact with each other and she gave him alcohol, marijuana and Klonopin at her home. She also gave the 16-year-old money to buy drugs for her and had sex with him at her home.
Jeez, way to make it sound so… so tawdry, Barbour County prosecutors. Sarah Rutherford didn’t commit battery or contribute to the delinquency of anything. She’s not some sexual predator or corrupter of youth. She’s a seductress. She’s an expert in the art of female teacher-male student romance. I mean, look at that technique. The text messages. The friendly little invite to the home. “Initiating contact” with the other kid to solicit a relationship. The daily contact. The booze, pot and Klonopin to set the mood. The drug money payments and rewards of sex. In your top flight Sex Scandal Teacher states they call that “flirting. Or “foreplay.” But in some jerkwater like West Virginia they call it “misdemeanor.” You’ll never get in the SST game making it sound so sleazy.
Looks: Yup. Not one of the greats, I grant you. And the smeared mascara in the mugshot isn’t doing her grade any favors. But in sort of a low rent, trailer park, Coal Miner’s Daughter kind of way, she’s got a little bit of an Ellen Page vibe. Anyway, you’d do it. Grade: B-.
Moral Compass/Bad Judgment: Two kids. She was the aggressor each time. Sounds like she had a master plan to get Eiffel Towered by these guys but couldn’t pull it off before the law caught up to her. Too bad because I can only give her a Grade: B.
Intangibles: Philippi, WV. Home of the Mountin’ -eers. Ehh. I don’t love it. Grade: C.
