Carrie enjoyed her work as a teacher, and really loved her students. Literally.
On Thursday, Carrie Cabri Witt received a 10-year sentence, the Decatur Daily report. However, Witt will only spend 18 months in state prison, followed by 18 months in a community corrections program. She will serve the remainder of her sentence on probation.
Witt pleaded guilty in March to one count of a school employee engaging in a sex act with a student under the age of 19. Prosecutors had dismissed a second count. The now-48-year-old was arrested in March 2016 and accused of having sex with two students, ages 17 and 18. She was a teacher at Decatur High School.
After her arrest, Witt’s attorneys argued that she had a constitutional right to have sex with the students. Under Alabama law, anyone over 16 without a specified infirmity is capable of consenting to sex.
I’m all for invoking your constitutional rights, but I’m not sure claiming you have a right to diddle teenagers was the best strategy.
Also, I would hit that so hard, whoever pulled me out would be crowned the king of England.
