    If they are found out? Somewhere close to exactly the % at which it can be proven in court that it happened, because it will be prosecuted and the law is very clear and cut.

    Don't you consider the complications that could arise with a teacher/student sexual relationship? Such as favoritism, or if the relationship sours, the teacher is not so "nice" to the student anymore, among other ethical problems. Don't you consider anything else besides the fact that they are adults.

    That is the implication of the text, re-read. Employee in the same school district. No requirement to ever be on the same school property.

    Why do you want it to be okay for teachers to have sex with students?

    I would like for you to answer this.

    but what jury would convict under those circumstances? It just doesn't seem like it's going to happen

    It is tougher but it happens with relatively small age gaps (I don’t have exact ages). Of course, Texas being Texas, there appears to be some gender bias to the verdicts. Plus, that there are charges at all, with the defense costs, and potential the consequences and every time something goes to trial being a crapshoot?

    There was already a generic statute on the books to cover rape via abuse of position. The person that wrote this bill and brought it to the Legislature even weighed in publicly on a recent case and said that her intention had NOT been to include 18 year-olds, that was an amendment that was made once it got to the floor.

    Classic overreach.

    I agree that there seems to be some issues with it, but as I said before, I have no issue with holding teachers to strict standards (even when discussing two adults), in relation to their students.

    So i'm honestly unsure of how to handle the situation
