    "A high-school teacher who was jailed for performing sex acts on her underage pupils has blamed her strict religious upbringing for her crimes."

    "Linda Hardan, from Prospect Park in New Jersey, was jailed to three years in prison yesterday(23/01/17) after*sending scores of sexually explicit text messages to pupils, aged 14 to 16 years-old in 2014, and then engaging in sex acts with them."

    "Her defense lawyer, Alissa Hascup, said the woman was driven in part to commit the offences due to her strict religious upbringing, and suggested that she be treated by a therapist as oppose to serving time in prison."

    "In one case Hardan, who taught at Manchester Regional High School, sent 40 selfies of herself 'in varying states of undress' to a 14-year-old then drove him to a waterfall and performed a sex act on him."

    "The prosecutor said the boy was 'so upset, so disgusted that he got out of the car and walked home' two miles away."

    'Another student, 16, was so traumatized by Hardan's actions that he dropped out of school and never returned, said prosecutor Gyselle Da Silva."

    According to the article, she can get bail after 1 year actually so that's even more messed up.

    With the case of Adam Johnson, he got 6 years for something like that. 1 year seems a bit short.

    Thanks to the actions of Muhammed, muslims don't see sexual activity with children as a bad thing, so her religion probably is partially to blame.
