Oh, we got trouble down in Texas again. There is no doubt the state is the leader in female teacher and student sex cases. At least the ones made public. You could chalk this up to better investigating and reporting of such crimes in that particular state, but then you’d be making total supposition. The more likely scenario is that teachers in the Lone Star State, for whatever reason, are seeing fit to couple up with their kid students in rather noteworthy numbers.
Add to that list, Muenster High School teacher, Lynn Burge, 32. The married mother of two and “introduction to culinary arts” teacher (which may be your problem right there), stands accused of multiple crimes, including sex with one 16-year old student at her house after a drunken drive-around the woods evening, and sex with an 18-year old student months previous, which while the boy is a legal-aged adult, still falls under the statute forbidding teachers to hump their high school students of any age. Burge also got hit with a solicitation online charge for sharing naked photos of herself on Snapchat with the 16-year old. You know, as pre-culinary arts instructors are apt to do.
Somebody likely in the 16-year old’s family tipped off investigators who quickly gobbled up Burge, having her first answer to the teen’s claim that the two drove around the backwoods drunk for several hours, before she told him he could sleep in one of her kid’s bedrooms at her house, and eventually inviting him into her own for sex. As a defense, Burge seems to be sticking with a plan of being too drunk to remember:
“I don’t know, I hope not. I don’t know. I didn’t think I did because my clothes were on. Usually if that happens your clothes aren’t on. I don’t know, I don’t know, I can’t remember anything.”
You’re going to want to polish up that drunken blackout memory thing, teach. It’s the same defense she’s claiming on the night earlier in the year when she had unprotected sex with the 18-year old student. That’s by his account only so far, but given that she was sending nudes to the other teen on Snap, and admitted to driving him around drinking and inviting him to spend the night at her place while it was empty, you might take the logical leap to this crazy lady loves her booze and boys.
Burge bailed out of jail pending arraignment. Her school district fired her and covered their ass simultaneously in a random trite statement about student yadda-yadda-yadda. I feel like we’ve covered this story before? The names and faces are the only things changing.
