    FL - Debra Lafave accused of having sex with 14yo student

    http://news.tbo.com/news/MGBOGLVQV8E.html

    TAMPA - A former teacher accused of having a sexual tryst with her 14-year- old student is expected to enter into a plea deal within the next four weeks, lawyers said in a court hearing Wednesday.

    Debra Lafave's attorney, John Fitzgibbons, told the judge that his client has been analyzed by state and defense psychiatrists. In the next few weeks, he said, he and prosecutors will review the reports and try to find some mutual ground.

    Fla. Teacher to Claim Insanity in Sex Case

    A teacher will claim she was insane due to emotional stress and did not know right from wrong when she had sex numerous times with a 14-year-old student, her attorney said Monday.

    "What teacher in her right mind would do something like this?" attorney John Fitzgibbons said after a brief hearing for his client, Debra Lafave, a middle-school reading teacher.

    The judge agreed to appoint two mental health professionals to evaluate Lafave, 24. Prosecutors have said a state psychologist already determined Lafave was not insane, while one hired by the defense concluded that she was mentally ill.

    Lafave's trial was set for Dec. 5 on four felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery and one count of lewd and lascivious exhibition. Each carries a maximum 15-year prison term.

    Fitzgibbons said plea bargaining broke down because prosecutors wanted Lafave to serve too much prison time, though he did not give details.

    "To place an attractive young woman in that kind of hell hole is like putting a piece of raw meat in with the lions," said Fitzgibbons. "I'm not sure she would survive."

    My personal opinion is who cares if she survives in prison? I mean do you think we would give a crap about a man teacher surviving in prison if he did this? Nope we wouldnt!

    Lafave's attorney tries to block photos

    Everybody knows about Debra Lafave. They know about her alleged trysts with a 14-year-old student. They even know what she was wearing that day in the portable classroom. But few know about the graphic photos police took of the former Greco Middle School teacher.

    On Tuesday, Lafave's attorney filed a motion to block public access to six photos taken of her last year, saying officers violated Lafave's constitutional right to privacy when they shot close-ups of her genitals.

    Questioned by detectives a week before Lafave's arrest on charges of lewd and lascivious battery, the boy told them things about his teacher that only intimate contact would have revealed. He mentioned belly button rings and butterfly tattoos. Then he told them about Lafave's "V" shaped tan line along her waist and that she had shaved her pubic area in a "unique" pattern.

    When detectives brought Lafave to the county jail, they told her they had a warrant to photograph her body, according to the motion filed Tuesday. A nurse draped a sheet over Lafave and a female jailhouse deputy snapped four pictures of her hips, legs and back. Then they placed Lafave's feet in stirrups and took two close-up photos of her genitals that Fitzgibbons described as "pornographic."


    Under Florida's public records laws, any citizen can request access to the Lafave photos.

    Wow! I wonder how they are going to present those photos in court? I mean, I agree with the taking of the photos under these circumstances, but the way it is handled in court is going to have to be very delicate.

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    She obviously wanted her privates to be seen. Most people don't go to all of that trouble for their own amusement.

    The case of Debra Lafave has taken lots of odd twists since she was charged with lewd and lascivious battery last summer. On Thursday, it took another: A Temple Terrace police officer with ties to her case was accused of sexual misconduct.

    The Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office charged Temple Terrace police Detective John Gillespie on Thursday with soliciting a prostitute.

    Gillespie, 43, was one of three police officers who ordered jailhouse staffers to photograph Lafave's body after the former Greco Middle School teacher was arrested last June for allegedly having sex with her 14-year-old student. Gillespie was not present when a jail deputy snapped graphic close-ups of Lafave's genitals, but his name appears on the search warrant for her body and he read the warrant to Lafave before the pictures were taken, Sinacore said.

    TAMPA Two Tampa television stations have requested explicit photos taken of former schoolteacher Debra Lafave by police.

    Courts spokeswoman Pam Bondi said Monday that WTSP Channel 10 and WFTS Channel 28 made written requests for the photos from the state attorney's office, citing Florida's public records laws.

    Yeah, just what is not needed in this case. Some little kid seeing teacher's privates on some TV channel.
