Finally, the Deborah Lafave case is over. And aside from Court TV and Marion County Circuit Judge Hale Stancil, everyone seems pretty much satisfied. Or just tired of hearing about it.
Lafave, however, should have quit while she was ahead. She should have passed on the self-serving press conference. She used the forum to prattle on about being happy to be “out of the spotlight” – and then expressed a desire to write a book, one that would ostensibly put sex with a 14-year-old student into a bi-polar context.
Lafave also used the opportunity to criticize a media that “totally took it out of proportion.” She then indicated that with her previous career as a teacher forever precluded, she planned to take online courses in journalism.
Perhaps she will be back in the tabloids some day.
