Winterfeld was supposed to be the last bastion of defense for the north of Westeros. It’s possible that’s Winterfell. Winterfeld would be the many times awarded teacher in the Northern U.S., 33, who now stands accused of spending the last two weeks of her life having sex with a 15-year old boy and former student of hers at Lincoln Park Middle School in Duluth, Minnesota.
Much like the very recent case of Elizabeth Geisler, a middle school vice-principal who had sexual relations with a boy she kept in contact with after he graduated to high school, Winterfeld apparently knew the “victim” in this sexual assault case from his time with her at middle school, though the alleged sexual contact is all to have taken place in recent weeks, and a bunch of it according to arrest reports:
“A criminal complaint alleges that Winterfeld confessed to multiple sex acts with the alleged victim between May 4 and May 19. Investigators said they also recovered video recordings, photographs, text messages and other evidence supporting the allegations.”
Ah, video. That’s when you know you’ve lost all your good senses, thrown caution to the wind, and you’re in Thelma and Louise mode in the middle of your last moments of freedom. In this case, shtupping a teen boy who used to be in your health and potentially special ed classes in middle school. Everybody has their grand exit plan.
And exit Winterfeld may indeed as she’s been charged with first degree felony sexual conduct in this matter. That’s tantamount to a rape charge and comes with very severe penalties. According to reports, Winterfeld is already cooperating with authorities and apparently that began with a full confession of her naughty times with the boy this month. Expect that will go some way toward lessening her ultimate plea deal arrangement.
People often ask me if I take joy in uncovering the many and growing dalliances of attractive female teachers and the boys, and occasionally girls, under their care. The answer is yes. Definitely yes. At least somebody’s being honest here.
