At want point does one become responsible?

Lot's of talking heads bemoan the fact that Debbie LaFave has pleaded guilty to 2 counts of Lewd and Lascivious behavior (isn't that the name of a rock band?) and got no prison time....

I say KUDOS to the judge for having the balls to sentence the woman appropriately, she will serve probation but no hard time.

If you don't know, this 25 year old teacher in Florida engaged in some sexual activities with one of her students (he was 14 at the time). At what point can we say that the 14 year old "boy" bears SOME responsibility for his actions? It takes two to tango, if the kid walked into the mall and stole a bottle of acne cream, we would slap his wrist and send him to a Juvenile Detention Center because he is responsible for preventing himself from stealing someone elses personal property.

But for some reason, when a super hot teacher asks him to do a remake of the Van Halen video, "I'm hot for teacher," SHE is the only person that engaged in the lewd and lascivious behavior? Was he not present? Was he forced into it? Was it against his will? No way...he got his friend to drive the SUV, he put himself in the back seat with her and I am pretty sure there was no force...

When I was in school, they would have called the kid "lucky" and we would have gathered around him wanting to know "everything".
