Teacher accused of sex with student during husband's bachelor party

Bad things tend to happen at bachelor parties, but they are usually legal.

Sara Domres

In Wisconsin, a teacher is charged with having sex with a 16-year-old student, including once while her now-husband partied with friends at his bachelor party.

High school teacher Sara Domres, 28, is accused of two felony counts of sexual assault of a student.

According to police, who have interviewed the student, Domres had sex with the boy about 15 times while planning her marriage.

The trysts usually occurred in a parking lot, but at least once at a hotel, police say. Detectives determined the boy's cellphone connected to a Motel 6's wi-fi the same day Domres paid $56.54 in cash for a room and her fiance was having his bachelor party.

The boy has told police his teacher sent him "selfies" while she was on her honeymoon.

Police also recovered more than 1,000 text messages between the teacher and student.

Hand-written notes, some passed during class, included one saying "Baby Boo, I love you now & forever! Please be mine forever & ever. Always, your baby girl. P.S. Good luck on your quiz [smiley face]," reports local news station WISN.

If Domres was administering the quiz the kid probably scored fairly well.

Police have also tracked digital footprints suggesting the teacher was worried she would get caught, including a Google search for "What's the prison sentence for a teacher sleeping with a student?"

The answer is 6 years for each count.

She was fired from New Berlin West High School in January, but the police investigation began in February, which is a bit unusual. In Georgia, teachers are generally placed on leave and paid until their case is adjudicated. New Berlin must have less tax money to waste than Atlanta.

Documents reveal the affair began in May of 2015, when the boy was Domres' English student.

Domres pleaded not guilty Friday [video]. She was released on a $1,000 bond. Her husband, who allegedly had caught his wife in a parking lot with the boy, was at her side during the Friday hearing.

Now, for my standard question: Would a male teacher be given equal treatment?  The Constitution says yes , but I'm thinking most judges would say no.
