Mary Kay Letourneau - A Must Read!
Since Mary Kay Letourneau, middle-aged Washington State school teacher, shocked the world by seducing and having babies with her young male student, there have been a rash of women teachers brought to light who engaged in romantic or sexual relationships with their male students. But Mary Kay was the first and surely the most infamous. She was jailed for 7 years and branded a pedophile. Now out of prison, she and her lover married and are raising their children. Gregg Olsen is a gifted true-crime author and he has a fascinating story to work with.
