More scary teacher news, sad to say atleast one gets to go free

Today's Google Alert had a bumper crop of news about scary teachers. The following came with a search pattern of [teacher guilty].

The headlines reads State could revoke license of teacher in teen-sex case. The teacher, Nicole M. Long, pleaded guilty to sexual battery, a third-degree felony. And the Ohio Board of Education might revoke her teaching license. It boggles the mind. Is there anything a teacher could do that would automatically revoke the teaching license?

A Manhattan high school administrator, Steven Mark Rubinstein, was caught trying to hook up with more underage girls in an Internet sting operation. Not only do we have to be careful about the teachers, but we need to remember that the school administrators, the ones watching over the teachers, need to be watched.

This is the one I really don't understand. A music teacher, William Liddle Jr., pled guilty to 13 felony sex crimes, but the judge decides to suspend the entire sentence because the teacher has multiple sclerosis. Liddle has a get out a "Get Out of Jail Free" card. It is sad the guy has multiple sclerosis, but it didn't slow him down when he was committing the crimes. It shouldn't excuse him from serving his time.
