Social Rot Los Angeles: LA School District Lawyers Argue 14 Yr Old Student Mature Enough to Have Sex with Teacher

Liberals are slowly sending out societal signals to De-stigmatize sex with children as “normal” adult behavior. Two articles appeared last year in the media; the first being Is Pedophilia Just Another ‘Sexual Orientation’?  The second boldly claimed Student-Teacher Sex Should Not Be a Crime. 

What happened in Los Angeles last week is a continuation of the same theme. We’re rapidly approaching a point whereby Libs will demand the sexual freedom of children in their single digit years as a civil right. As Rush Limbaugh would say, “Don’t doubt me!”

Southern California Public Radio reports last November, Los Angeles Unified School District lawyers fighting a civil lawsuit argued in court that a 14-year-old middle school student was mature enough to consent to having sex with her 28-year-old teacher, and that she bore some responsibility for what happened. The district’s attorneys also introduced the girl’s sexual history into the trial as part of their defense strategy.

Two legal experts sharply criticized the school district for using those tactics. They also said the case highlights a little-known conflict in California law: while the age of consent is firmly set at 18 in criminal cases, at least two appellate court rulings have found that in civil cases, it is possible to argue that a minor can consent to sex with an adult.

Last November’s case involved a math teacher at Thomas Edison Middle School in Southeast Los Angeles who in December 2010 began a six-month sexual relationship with a girl who went to the school. The teacher, Elkis Hermida, was convicted of lewd acts against a child and sentenced in July 2011 to three years in state prison.
The girl’s family filed a civil lawsuit against L.A. Unified, claiming the district was negligent and the experience had emotionally damaged the girl, endangering any future romantic relationships she might have.

During the three week civil trial, district lawyers denied that L.A. Unified had any knowledge of the relationship, argued the girl knew what she was doing when she chose to have sex with Hermida and suggested the girl was to blame for her situation, not LAUSD.
“She lied to her mother so she could have sex with her teacher,” said Keith Wyatt, L.A. Unified’s trial attorney in the case, in an interview with KPCC. “She went to a motel in which she engaged in voluntary consensual sex with her teacher. Why shouldn’t she be responsible for that?”
