A Nebraska teacher charged with having birthday sex with a 16-year-old led a “double life” — because she’s mentally ill, her lawyer claimed in court.
Emily Lofing, 27, who taught at Nebraska City Middle School in Weeping Water, slept with the boy last year, and was sentenced Monday to 90 days’ jail, two years’ probation and 240 hours of community service.
The whore’s lawyer, Desirae Solomon, blamed her predatory behavior on her family history of depression and work stress, according to reports.
“That’s the tragedy of mental illness,” Solomon told Judge John Steinheider. “It doesn’t know demographics. It doesn’t know race. It doesn’t know age. It doesn’t know education, and, when mental illness strikes, it can sometimes do so without any warning.”
Solomon said letters of support indicate the female pedophile’s crime was completely uncharacteristic.
“They speak to a period of time when Ms. Lofing was living a double life,” she said. “People who have known her for her whole entire life were shocked at this type of behavior.”
But Steinheider noted the child predator craftily dodged more serious charges.
“This alleged indiscretion, I’ll say, took place on the victim’s 16th birthday,” the judge said, according to reports. “You were less than 24 hours from a felony here.”
The age of consent in Nebraska is 16. The bitch was charged with misdemeanor debauching a minor and pleaded no contest.
She voluntarily surrendered her teaching license.
The hoe could be sprung from jail in as little as 53 days for good behavior, Steinheider said.
