Key Lawmaker Takes Over Bill to Criminalize Teacher-Student Sex

A Kentucky lawmaker will take over a bill to criminalize sex between teachers and students.

State Representative Kathy Stein, House Judiciary Committee chairwoman, took responsibility for the legislation after its originator resigned to take a job in Governor Steve Beshear's administration.

The proposed legislation would criminalize sex between teachers and older teens who are not protected by Kentucky's age-of-consent law.

From 2001 to 2005, more than 2500 educators have lost their teaching licenses nationwide for sexual misconduct allegations.
