Debra Lafave's Sentence Reduced
(Tampa, Florida) I swear, former-teacher Debra Lafave is like kryptonite to the justice system's super powers.
To refresh memories, Lafave was tagged for mixing it up with a schoolboy and probation violations. The most she's been given is house arrest and today Judge J. Rogers Padgett cut the remaining time that Lafave must serve on house arrest from seven months to three and a half.
Apparently, it was reports of good behavior that prompted the judge to give 27-year-old Lafave a break.
Nevertheless, neither the victim's family nor the prosecutor is thrilled. There is a general belief that Lafave has been treated with pronounced leniency by the courts.
