A woman accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student while teaching at a Utah high school has avoided jail and will have to serve 100 hours of community service, 18 months of probation and pay a $900 fine instead.

Courtney Louise Jarrell, 23, had faced up to three years in jail, but Judge Bruce Lubeck today decided against any time in prison after both prosecutors, Jarrell’s lawyers and even the student asked that she be kept out of jail.

In February, Jarrell pled guilty to three counts of misdemeanor sexual battery and agreed to give up her teaching license. She initially faced charges of object rape, a first-degree felony, and forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony.

By pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges, she does not have to register as a sex offender.

‘I’ve lost my teaching license and that was something that I worked really hard for and I’ve been punished throughout the year with different things,’ Jarrell told Lubeck, crying, KSL reported. ‘I’ll never be in a school again like that. I don’t even know if I can go on field trips with my nieces’ or nephews’ or kids’ schools and that’s really hard for me. I feel like it was a big deal for me to lose that.’

What was Courtney Jarrell guilty of? It was not the lesbian relationship that created the trouble for Courtney Jarrell, it was the age of the student that did.

As the student was less than 18 years old, the relationship between the two was taken as committing rape on the part of Courtney Jarrell.

The most unfortunate part of the story has been that Jarrell lost her teaching license which she will never get back throughout her life. Her attorney, Ken Brown, said that Jarrell had suggested the student to wait for having sex until she turned 18. But who listens to whom when passions run high?
