Outrage Over Sex-Teacher Sentence

South Australian Premier Mike Rann has called for a report into the suspended sentence given to a teacher who had sex with her 15-year-old student.
The decision not to jail music teacher Bridget Mary Nolan , 25, has sparked widespread outrage, with the teenage victim's family questioning whether a male teacher would have been treated with such leniency.
Nolan had admitted having sex three times with the boy, who was a student at the country SA school where she worked, last year.
She had faced a maximum seven years' imprisonment for each of the three convictions for unlawful sexual intercourse, but the SA District Court yesterday suspended a two year jail term after Nolan entered a $1,000, three-year good behaviour bond.
Judge Gordon Barrett said Nolan's sacking as a teacher, and the considerable media publicity given to her case, had already served as considerable punishment.
"I am entitled to take into account the extent of shame you have already suffered," he said.
"You have lost your posting and will, in all likelihood, lose your career.
"While that is inevitable, it is, in your case a significant penalty."
Judge Barrett also noted Nolan, who was depressed after a break-up with her boyfriend at the time, was genuinely remorseful for her crime.
Last year, country SA teacher Kym Slater was jailed after he admitted having sex with two female students.
In Melbourne, physical education teacher Karen Ellis was initially given a suspended sentence for having sex with a student, but was later jailed after an appeal.
Ellis served six months' jail before she was released last November.
The family of Nolan's victim today criticised the decision not to jail her.
"Similar cases involving teachers and students where there have been a male perpetrator and a female victim have resulted in a jail term," the family said in a statement.
They also questioned the extent of Nolan's depression: "Our understanding of depression has led us to believe it usually causes a loss of libido."
SA Director of Public Prosecutions Stephen Pallaras said he would view a prosecutor's report before deciding whether to appeal.
Premier Mike Rann also said he would seek a report on the case.
"This was an incredible breach of trust," Mr Rann said.
"This teacher will never teach again and should never teach again."
