Debra Lafave - Hot Blonde Gets Off - Charges Dropped In Sex Case

This is freaking unbelieveable. I mean, you gotta be kidding, man! She got off.

Remember Debra Lafave, the totally hot (ok, too skinny for me) blonde teacher accused of having sex with a 14-year-old boy?

Well, today, Florida state procecutors decided to drop charges against her. Dropped them like a hot potato.

The AP reports:

(AP) State prosecutors decided Tuesday to drop charges against a former Tampa teacher accused of having sex with a 14-year-old middle school student.

The decision, announced hours after a judge rejected a plea deal for Debra Lafave, means the victim won't have to testify.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys had urged the judge to accept the deal for the sake of the boy involved. A psychiatrist who examined the teenager told the judge at a previous hearing that the boy suffered extreme anxiety from the media coverage of the case and does not want to testify.

Marion County Circuit Judge Hale Stancil, however, said the lack of prison time for Lafave under the plea deal "shocks the conscience of this court," and he rejected it.

Assistant State Attorney Richard Ridgway, in explaining the decision to drop the charges, said: "The court may be willing to risk the well-being of the victims in this case in order to force it to trial. I am not."

Lafave, 25, already faces three years of house arrest and seven years probation in Hillsborough County, where she was charged with having sex with the same boy in a classroom and her home. She pleaded guilty Nov. 22 to two counts of lewd and lascivious battery under a plea deal there.

In Marion County, she was accused of having sex with the boy in a sport utility vehicle.

Lafave said at a news conference later Tuesday that she has bipolar disorder, and her attorney said she was getting treatment.

"I have a lot of things in my past that have unfortunately become public," Lafave said.

Man, does this ever happen to a black man? Ok...maybe. Yeah, it does. But from another perspective, she also must have been a nice person who did something weird. If she were a jerk, they'd have locked her up.

South Park's Trey Parker and Matt Stone Launch Jihad Against Scientology

According to this NPR story, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of "South Park", issued this statement upon learning that a re-run of their now infamous "Scientology" episode (which makes fun of Tom Cruise who's pcitured at left)-- the one that caused singer and pop icon Isaac Hayes to quit his role as "Chef" on the show -- was cancelled, issued this statement:


Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for Earth has just begun! Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!

-- Trey Parker and Matt Stone, servants of the dark lord Xenu

My question is can Parker and Stone live for a million years to continue the battle?
