Sex between Older Men and Teens above 16


From what I understand it is legal in Connecticut for consensual sex to be legal for anyone over 16.

16 year olds can emancipate themselves from their parents in court in Connecticut. 18, I believe is the age for consensual sex in most other states.

A Hartford Courant Story about a teen having consensual sex with her 28 year old music teacher (below the * * * *).

A music teacher is accused of having consensual sex his 16 year old student. She exchanged emails, instant messages, and cell phone calls- all easily documented. The teacher is charged with a class C felony, up to 10 years in the hole.

Should he have to register as a sex offender like a rapist or child molester?

Why should Connecticut police officers get away with having sex with 16 year olds and young teen prostitutes with no punishments and a teacher is punished?

I don’t condone sex with children, nor the breaking of ethics codes in schools and churches.

I am sensitive to the ways laws are enforced, whom they are enforced against, the consistency of punishments, and who is and isn’t targeted.

I was first targeted for a retired cop tenant’s behavior of flooding my basement with sewage and I faced serious jail time for ‘negligence’ and health code violations for not being able to the messes fast enough when the retired cop flooded my basement 3 days in a row and I had to sleep after having little sleep.

I then got wind Connecticut State Police Officers tried to con a woman into making false sexual allegation against me to not be violated on probation and be able to see her kids. She didn’t give into the sleazy ploy of the police officers and was sent to prison for violation of probation.

I was then attacked on my property during a robbery attempt. Police were right there to arrest only me as self-defense isn’t legal in Connecticut.

So without a record I was sentenced to a year in prison, 3 years probation for having used pepper spray. I read while in prison that a teen with a long criminal record got probation for rape. What!!!???

And, another career criminal, but young, got 10 years probation for armed robbery and NO PRISON. What!!!???

I had been complaining to the former Governor John G. Rowland's Office about Heroin and Crack Cocaine being sold off and near my Stafford Springs, CT, rental properties. I also proposed Civilian Oversight of Police to elected officials. Complaining to the Governor's office and proposing laws directing police powers to serve the public, not just mainly collect revenue, upset the former Connecticut State Police Commissioner Arthur L. Spada. Is that the real reason I was arrested and railroaded to prison?

Teacher Faces Sex Assault Charges
June 7, 2005 By CAROLYN MOREAU, Hartford Courant Staff Writer (ctnow.com)

WEST HARTFORD -- A former music teacher at Northwest Catholic High School is facing felony charges he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student at his Hartford apartment. Matthew Glasser, 28, was the band director at the private Catholic school until he resigned in late May in the wake of a police investigation. He was arrested by Hartford police June 1, and charged with eight counts of second-degree sexual assault.

Although the warrant describes the relationship as consensual, police charged Glasser under a provision of the law that deals with sexual relations between teachers and students. School officials at Northwest Catholic learned of the affair in early May after the girl feared she might be pregnant, according to the warrant.

Michael Griffin, the school's president, declined to comment Monday on details of the arrest. But he said school officials have not received other complaints about Glasser and, prior to the investigation, had been happy with his work with the band and choir groups.

"He always had satisfactory evaluations," Griffin said.

"This was surprising to us."

Glasser was released on $150,000 bail and is due in Superior Court in Hartford today. His lawyer, David Poirot, declined to comment on the allegations Monday, and calls to Glasser's apartment were not answered.

According to the warrant prepared by Hartford Major Crimes Det. Mark R. Fowler, the girl had known Glasser for many years. He had been her teacher at St. Thomas elementary school, but their relationship turned sexual from April 12 to May 3, the warrant says.

The warrant outlines a series of changes in their conduct toward each other leading up to that. Starting in November, Glasser and the girl, who was involved in the choir and class musicals, began exchanging cellphone calls, e-mails and instant messages.

The pair flirted and talked about relationships, in exchanges police describe as inappropriate.

During an online conversation in February, Glasser suggested they "spoon" - lie next to each other front to back - after the girl told him she was upset.

"Aww yes," the girl replied to him in a message, according to the warrant.

In March, Glasser called the girl on her cellphone at 2 a.m. and told her he was in Bloomfield Center, looking for her house. The girl gave him directions and she sneaked out to meet him without her parents' knowledge, the warrant stated. The pair drove around that night talking for two hours in his Jeep Wrangler.

After that, the girl and Glasser met on "two or three" similar occasions, the warrant stated.

Once, after driving to Glasser's apartment at 115 Oxford St. in Hartford's West End to watch a movie, the pair was lying on Glasser's bed.

He told the girl he wanted to "hook up," which she understood to mean have sex, the warrant stated. They kissed but did not have sex. But starting on April 12, Glasser and the girl had sex on about eight occasions, the warrant stated. The teacher told the girl to keep their relationship secret "because he would be in a lot of trouble," the warrant stated.

The warrant does not say who informed school officials about the relationship in early May.

School officials placed Glasser on leave and contacted authorities when they learned about the affair. He resigned a few weeks later.Second-degree sexual assault, a class C felony, is defined in part as sexual intercourse between a school employee and a student.

In December 2002, a music teacher from East Catholic High School in Manchester was sentenced to nine months in prison after she engaged in a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl who was a student at the school.

Thankful Meo-Burt, who was 24 at the time, pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree sexual assault. She admitted to police that she engaged in a consensual sexual relationship with the student after the two got to know each other through the school's music program.
