Surprise! Female Teacher Who Plead Guilty to Sex With Male Student Gets Probation

The double-standard continues: female teacher Jennifer McCullum, 38, pleaded guilty to sex with a 17-year-old male student and will spend a total of five days in jail for it, Oh, and plus five years probation.

Would a male teacher in a similar situation get probation?

A former Petal High School teacher's guilty plea to having sex with one of her 17-year-old students led to five years of probation on top of five days in jail she already served last year.  Jennifer McCullum, 38, pleaded guilty in Forrest County Circuit Court Tuesday to one count of sexual battery for having sexual intercourse with a minor while in a position of authority.  Petal School District Superintendent John Buchanan said all the incidents occurred off the high school campus.

McCullum was indicted by a Forrest County grand jury on May 14, 2010, and according to her indictment, the intercourse occurred between Nov. 1, 2009, and Jan. 13, 2010.
