Double Standards

A California teacher who had sex with a student will avoid jail time, will not be required to register as a sex offender, and will be able to re-apply to teach.  Yeah, seriously.
Samantha Ciotta pleaded guilty to having sex with a student at Beaumont High School in Beaumont, Calif., where she was a teacher. However, the plea deal offered by the California prosecutors allows her to avoid jail time and Ciotta won't have to register as a sex offender. Putting a cherry on top of the double standard, in a few years, she may be able to re-apply to teach again.
One would wonder what kind of sentence a male teacher would get for the same offense.  If it weren't for double standards, California wouldn't have any standards at all.
