HAWKWARD: ‘What Young Man Would Not Jump On That Candy?’, Judge Gives Slap on the Wrist to Teacher who Had Sexual Encounter with Student

Uuuummm… I thought judges were supposed to uphold the law?

A former high school calculus teacher from the suburbs of Philadelphia was sentenced to 30 days in jail and 60 days under house arrest on Friday for her role in a 2013 sexual fling with a male student who was 17 at the time.

But that’s not the interesting news.

No, the interesting news is that the judge asked in open court, “What young man would not jump on that candy?”

The judge is Montgomery County Court Judge Garrett D. Page, according to the Daily Mail.

The teacher is Erica Ann Ginnetti, 35.

The tryst between Ginnetti, a married mother of three young children, and the student occurred in May 2013.

The requisite, large trail of easily traceable text messages between the star-crossed pair followed a prom night invite to the teacher’s gym. Some messages were sexually explicit. Some contained suggestive photos. Ginnetti also sent an explicit video starring herself.

On the fateful July night when Ginnetti and the student eventually consummated their affair, the romantic locale was inside a car in an industrial park. She sent him a text afterwards urging him to “do it again,” according to court records.

It’s not clear how local authorities became wise to the teacher-student affair, but both Ginnetti and the student owned up to it when police questioned them.

Ginnetti tearfully read an apology letter at her Friday sentencing hearing, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
