MILF teacher Bernadette Smith avoids jail after sleeping with student

4 years ago1K views

Bernadette Smith, 35, a former history and English teacher at Bannockburn High School in Scotland, slept with a student but will not go to jail — because she only slept with him.

The student in question, Gary Ralston, had Smith, a married mother of three, as a teacher during his third, fourth and fifth year. Ralston, now 16, said lots of students fancied her. The next year, when he was no longer her student, they would smile would smile then they passed each other in the corridor. Then one day, Smith called Ralston into her classroom and told him she had feelings for him. Ralston was 16, she was in her mid-30s.

They drove to a park in Falkirk and went for a walk. When they got back to the car, they started kissing.

Ralston told his father who, surprisingly, did not report Smith. "I wasn't pleased about what happened, but you're an adult at 16 in Scotland so I didn't want to interfere too much," Richard Ralston, 42, was quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.

"I want Gary to make decisions and learn from any mistakes."

But Ralston's grandmother called Bannockburn High School and Smith was suspended.

She then spent the night in his room. Ralston said he was nervous when she took her shirt off and got into bed wearing pants and her bra. But they just cuddled and talked, which is why Smith is not in jail.

The court was told Gary did appear to have suffered any long-term harm.

Smith pleaded guilty to engaging in sexual activity with a pupil while in a position of trust. She was merely placed under supervision and on the sex offenders' list for two years.
