The former Greco Middle School teacher pleaded guilty in 2005 to two counts of lewd and lascivious battery for having sex with a 14-year-old student. Facing trial and a potential prison sentence, Lafave agreed to complete her full sentence, three years of house arrest and seven years of probation. Lafave, 31, completed the house arrest, an accomplishment Timmerman called a difficult one that many fail.
I can’t speak for anyone else, but when I hear the word “pedophile,” I picture a man. Indeed, the sexual abuse of children is societally understood to be a crime perpetrated by males—in general, I think, we assume that women are extremely unlikely (and maybe even incapable) of sexually abusing a child. Traditional stereotypes of women as nurturing, inherently maternal, instinctively sympathetic toward children, and (perhaps more insidiously) less sexually active or sexually violent than men, all contribute to this belief. And yet the BBC reports that Childline, a British organization that offers support and counseling for child victims of sexual abuse, has seen a steady increase in the number of calls from young boys who have been abused by women—in fact, in the past five years, the number of children reporting sexual abuse by a woman has risen five times faster than the number of those reporting abuse by a man.
-Mary Kay Letourneau in Washington had sex with an underage boy and was able to get probation on the first offense instead of 7 years which is the mandatory punishment for this sentence until she did it again.
-Debra Lafave did not serve jail time for having sex with a an underage guy numerous times.
*A former middle school teacher serving house arrest for having sex with a 14-year-old student was arrested Tuesday for violating her probation, state records showed.
According to a Department of Corrections report, Debra Lafave discussed her personal life and other subjects with a teenage waitress at a restaurant where they both worked. One of the terms of her probation had been that she was not allowed to have unsupervised contact with any minors without permission.
Lafave could technically be sentenced to prison for up to 15 years for a probation violation, but people close to the case say it's unlikely she'll serve any time behind bars for such a minor offense.
...Lafave became a tabloid sensation after being arrested in 2004, above, for having sex with a 14-year-old male student. She was 23 at the time. Lafave later said she "crossed the line."
Lafave, now 26, is serving three years house arrest and seven years probation after pleading guilty to charges that stemmed from having sex with the boy in a classroom and her home. The judge felt she was too pretty to go to jail.
Lafave has said that her bipolar disorder contributed to her state of mind at the time she had sex with the boy. She avoided prison by pleading guilty in 2005 to two counts of lewd and lascivious battery.

You don't have to live in the states for this to affect you. Remember Omar Khadr? All the states had to do was ask for him and we handed him over quite willingly, against the protests of citizens and NGOs alike. The fact that we're Canadian means nothing. We might as well be Americans-by-proxy. That's how they see us.

Have any of you actually read the bill?
The bill is total garbage but it does not contain what the article in the OP states it does.
This bill would require ISPs to keep only a record of the temporary IP address they assign to you for one year; not 18 months. There's nothing in there about storing your entire internet record for 18 months...TBH I don't think that would even be logistically possible. Text of the bill.
Trying to fight a garbage bill like this without reading it to verify the information only weakens our arguments and makes defeating it even less likely.edit on 1/22/2012 by NoArmsJames because: Typo and punctuation.

Hi, just wanted to let you know it's not just men that have to worry about this aspect.. so now we'd need to install 24 hour surviellence in our homes, provided by an outside company to monitor any and all activity on our computers to prevent anyone of us being victim to foul play. yipppeee

What would be the point of just recording ip addresses temporarily used? any ip sniffer can do that plus tell how long your ip was in communication with another ip address, how many packets were sent, etc. The ip sniffer can detect all the traffic flow through a typical network, the peaks and lows and spikes of a typical day. Then there are the keyloggers.
