Afterwards.....Mary Jo.....an honors English teacher at Freedom High school....drove with the male students over to the HoJo (Bama chat for Howard Johnson motel) and drank booze together. In Bama...we wouldn't have this problem because we'd have a dry county and none of this teacher-student stuff or teacher foreplay or disgusting behavior. But this is Florida....the sin capital of America (after New Orleans, New York City, Las Vegas, Portland, Austin, Del Rio, Mobile, Memphis, St Louis, Boise, the whole state of Rhode Island, Philly, Boston, Seattle, Atlanta, and Dayton).
At some point in this meeting at the Hojo....the two guys wanted to let their friends know of their meeting place....and were were texting some friends that they were going to have a party at this motel. You know guys....they gotta brag about booze or women. So at some point....three other students joined them in the motel room.
At some point here....with the booze flowing, the rock & roll music playing.....a 17-year-old apparently had close physical contact with Mary Jo in the shower. The door was closed....so none of the other four guys in the other room saw anything....and it might have been bogus....but who knows?
Apparently....Mary Jo.....45.....of Wesley Chapel....got arrested Thursday at Freedom High. She is charged with one count of unlawful sex with a minor and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor....this kinda stems from giving booze to a punk kid....seventeen years old.
How does this get out and get reported? Well...some teacher sat there in the school and heard a student tell the entire story......and reported it to Freedom's administration. The good news about all of this....Mary Jo wasn't the student's teacher....she was actually the honor's English teacher and usually only hung out with the geeky folks who were destined for university....and not the football squad dopes who don't get scholarships offered and end up working at Wal-Mart restocking the shelves.
What happens now? Well....right away....Mary Jo will let every know that she is a nice person and simply a out-of-control alcoholic....and needs rehab....which the teacher's health care program will pay for. The school will investigate...but to be truthful....its a seventeen year old guy and he won't cooperate in court for the government. Her teaching certificate will be dissolved and I'm guessing at best...30 to 60 days in jail....and thats it. She will be selling real estate within twelve months and probably married to the seventeen year old guy.....and in five years....he'll dump her for a younger gal. Such is the state of the Republic tonight. Oh, and the icing on this cake....she's the second teacher of the year in this county arrested for stuff like this.
