Do you think a state should prosecute a teacher for having sex with students if the students are of legal age?

No way. Two consenting ADULTS sleeping together is NOT a crime. I don't even know that termination is warranted.

There has to be a question though of whether or not the situation constitutes consent, particularly when the student is a current student of the teacher given the relatively position of power of the teacher.

Legally I don't think it's an issue. But I think that it's immoral because the situation is inappropriate

I am against any teacher having sex with a student of age and I feel he or she should be prosecuted because he or she is in a power of position. How are we to know if the student felt he or she had to have sex because they are an authority figure. High school students are still young and impressionable whether 18 or not.

totally agree

What a whore! It's not right. She holds a standard for being above them in status. That's like having sex with your boss.

Just my personal opinion here: If a teacher has sex with a student who is above the legal age, they should get fired, but not prosecuted.
I do not feel that a teacher should be prosecuted for having sex with someone of a legal age.

I don't think it's illegal, though she should certainly be fired. Is the issue that she worked for the state technically?
