The apple doesn't fall far from the tree

The case of "Monica" of the prestigious Milton Academy (discussed previously here and here) continues to get more and more twisted. The Boston Globe did a little investigating into her family's background, and came up with a few interesting items:

1) Her older brother, when he was 15, had "sexual relations" with a 38-year-old male teacher. The teacher is currently serving time in prison for the incident.

2) Her father teaches at a private school. At a prior school, he was fired for fondling himself in front of female students. He was later tried for indecent exposure, but acquitted. Both his children attended the whole trial.

3) Nine months after that accusation, the father was accused of "improperly touching" a teenage girl at his current school. No charges were filed in that case, and he is still employed.

There is yet no word on a sexual scandal involving her mother, but I think it's just gotta be a matter of time.

This story keeps getting sadder and sadder.

Update: Julie points out I forgot to include the link to the actual Boston Globe story. (Doh!) My thanks, Julie -- the story is here.)

That was my first thought. Ick ick ick ick ick. I feel like I need to sentence myself to 10 years for even thinking it.

Oh, just stop already! How dare you continue to criticize a young girl's innocent and natural exploration of her budding sexuality by doing the entire varsity hockey team in the locker room. Prude!

When I first read this story, I thought that there was most likely some sexual abuse in this girl's past. Promiscuity in young girls is a BIG BIG sign of previous sexual abuse.

Truly sick. The mother probably zoned out on Prozac and valium years ago.

Sad thing is we all know this is just the tip of the iceberg. Titanic didn't sink because of what you could see above the waterline. I'm afraid to think just how degenerate this family is.

How does one properly touch a teenaged girl? Just curious.

You may pat her on the head. That's it.

It depends on if you're a male or a female. If it were a male coach, it is NOT proper or you would be accused of sexual harrassment. If you were the father, you may hug, but even that is becoming circumspect because everyone is worried about sexual harrassment.

If you're female, hugs are almost mandatory.

Chuck,

That depends on which side of your local age of consent laws she's on and how well armed her daddy is.

Yes, it does get sadder and sadder. No, not the story of this family, but the baffling need for you to continue commenting on it. I guess the moral superiority that it provides has a soothing effect.
