Well this is certainly a new one.
While plenty of teachers are hooking up with their students these days, 34-year-old Davis High School English teacher Cassandra Renae White, was so head over heels for one 16-year-old student that she decided to try and marry the teen.
The teacher, from Oklahoma, actually took out a marriage license in hopes of marrying the student. Once it was discovered, White was quickly fired and now the police is involved. It gets even stranger. Apparently the teen’s father gave consent for all of this. Oh boy. Here’s a look at the marriage license issued for White and the teen.
So yep, it’s all real.
The teen’s father spoke out about this bizarre situation:
“I’m sick. I’m sick about it. I didn’t want it to happen. I weighed out the ups and downs of it and I thought, ‘Who am I?’ So, he asked me to do something. I did it.”
The father also added that he doesn’t want White to lose her three children, and that his son is almost 17-years-old and did not have sex with the teacher. Oh dad, you’re so naive.
Here’s what the Davis School District had to say about all this:
“The district is currently cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation of these allegations. The teacher in question is no longer employed by Davis Schools.”
According to The New York Post, “No arrests have been made, but rape charges could be filed against White if she was involved in a sexual relationship with the teen. It is illegal for a teacher to have sex with a student enrolled in the same school system.”
I’m not a dad, but I’d like to think I wouldn’t let my kid marry his teacher. Although, that would be a good way to get them out of the house so what do I know?
