Christine McCallum, a former teacher from Massachusetts, has been sentenced to 29 months in prison to go along with 10 years of probation because she drugged and then raped a 13-year-old student. McCallum is 29 and had been arrested back in January of 2009. She was convicted of raping the student, which occurred close to 300 times over a span of 21 months. McCallum did plead guilty to 12 counts of child rape, one count of drugging a person for sex and one count of providing a minor with alcohol.
McCallum taught at Abington elementary school, where she was tutoring the boy along with his 11-year-old brother since 2005. Not long after a period of 20 months, the two boys moved in with McCallum and her husband on a part-time basis. In February of 2006, McCallum had sex with the boy for the first time. She used marijuana and alcohol to persuade the boy to have sex with her. The relationship between the two stopped close to two years after it began when the boy, at the age of 15, started showing interest in a girl of his own age. The father of the boy, in a statement, said that McCallum is “a true predator and a monster” who destroyed his life.
“You put my two sons at grave risk on many occasion with out my knowledge, you gave my kids drugs and alcohol with no regard for their well being, only to fulfill your own selfish needs,” the father of the boy said in a court appearance. “To me you are true predator and a monster.”
