Nadine Nunnelee is 40 and, until recently, was employed as a teacher in good standing at Garden City High School in Kansas.
Today she stands accused of participating in America's hottest crime trend -- female teachers having sex with male students.
Nunnelee was busted Wednesday at the school. A police captain had been working on a runaway case and stumbled across a tip that a teacher was doing a student, in this case a 16-year-old who stayed at Nunnelee's home between Dec. 17-25 (insert your own "helping her hang balls on her tree" joke here).
The Associated Press reports that Nunnelee wouldn't be accused of a crime if the teen wasn't a student; in Kansas the age of consent is 16, but it's illegal for a teacher to have sex with a student who attends the same school.
Cops say the sex was consensual. Nunnelee has been suspended with pay.
The Smoking Gun has her mugshot. Such a sad sight.
