Courtroom Shocked By Judge's Sentencing Of Teacher Who Raped A Student

A judge in Pennsylvania has reduced the jail sentence of a teacher who had sex with a student, the Daily Mail reported.

Erica Ann Ginneti, a 35-year-old married woman with three children, was a math and calculus instructor at Lower Moreland Township School when she had a tryst with a 17-year-old boy. In December, she pleaded guilty to charges of “institutional sexual assault” and “disseminating sexually explicit materials to a minor.”

Ginneti initially received a sentence of seven to 14 years. However, last week, Judge Garrett Page changed the jail term to three to 23 months. The teacher will have to spend only 30 days behind bars, after which she is to remain on house arrest for 60 days. Ginneti will be on probation for another three years, and is required to do 100 hours of community service. She also must register as a sex offender for 25 years, The Intelligencer reported.

The teacher cried in the courtroom while reading an apology, which she said might provide “closure for this nightmare.” According to prosecutors, the victim’s grades and social life have suffered as a result of the sexual abuse.

“One bad day because of sexual hunger has resulted in all this avalanche of harm,” Page said. He remarked that when Ginetti sent the boy X-rated photos and videos of herself, it was like “dangling candy” before the boy.

Ginetti is now a fitness teacher and church volunteer, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. According to Page, the woman is not a “bad human being” even though she committed a “bad act.”
