At 24 years old, there is NOTHING sexually attractive about an underage boy! this woman is a pedophile and should be treated as such. Anybody attracted to an underage person is by definition of pedophile.

her husband now, was a very very precocious teen..... sexualy precocious. ... and there is a real solid love btw them...... everything worked out at the end.... i hope they will love each other forever 😊

LaraCroftEyes1 I think there is a real love btw them otherwise they would have split already !!

Not real love and you wouldn't say that shit if Mary was a man and who groomed and raped his female student and later marries her and Villi is unhappy and Mary still emotional abusing
Soo Kymbo (10 days ago)
It's probably more co dependence than love. I feel sorry for her she can never justify her actions morally or legally but she's going spend her life trying. She'll not have peace while striving to do that.
LaraCroftEyes1 (5 days ago)
She doesn't deserve peace and she is a damn child rapist
How could our government allow this? Someone needs to get a law past. First....no statute of limitations on child rape....and life imprisonment. Now that lil guy can never have a life God planned for him. Poor kid. Ill always see him as a little 12 year old kid. Thats how old he was when she first raped him. Had she gotten life....he could have had his own great accomploshments. College and a carreer and the wife God planned She not only raped him but in my eyes she got away with kidnapping him as well. What a loser. Theres a special place in hell for child rapists. Dress it up all you want. Shes just like phillip guerrido if you ask me

So she says she had NO IDEA it was a crime....so what's up with her plea for leniency saying she had no right ethically or legally ...and her statement that it WAS WRONG...shes a pedophile through and through....shes a remorseless SEX OFFENDER
Angela Alvarez (27 days ago)
Everyone who condones what she did, I agree with you only if you would allow your 12 year old son can have done to him the same as done to this 12 year old, if no then your a hypocrite. I do agree they should be left alone today. The crime and damage has been done.

I believe this couple was idolized because of the “Beautiful blonde girl with blue eyes” troupe and that she could never do ANYTHING wrong I mean just look at her she’s beautiful. Fuck that she still groomed a little boy to fuck her and made him think their was nothing wrong with it. If you really still agree with her let’s reverse the roles, imagine if a 32 yr male teacher was to fuck a 11 yr girl . See how disgusting that is , yeah fuck this couple.

As expected, the children look nothing like their white mother. White extinction in progress. This woman is a complete lunatic. How did she fall in love with a 12 year old boy who isn't even the same race as her and looks totally weird, like Garfield the cat? She must have some form of mental illness.

i feel really sad for this man - she preyed on and abused him at such a young age, and still continued to abuse and manipulate him into adulthood. sure, he was older, but when youre in that kind of dynamic, where you've been traumatized and abused, you develop strategies to cope and sort of split off from reality. i hope he will be ok, and i find her behaviour really despicable and reprehensible.

Lots of sympathetic comments here...and the reason is obvious: she's a hot woman who seduced a boy....if it was a bald, ugly, male teacher who abused either a girl or a boy, everyone would be absolutely disgusted and call for the pervert to be castrated or killed...instead they see this blonde hottie( still a MILF btw) and say idiotic things like "What a beautiful love story!"...."You shouldn't judge, life is complicated"....I find it quite amusing.

Most of you are saying the wrong things and your opinions are shit. Let me tell you how this goes. If it were a young girl and the teacher was a man this is bad. But this is a guy. Im a guy. All we do from 6th grade and up is masturbate and constantly think of sex. You cant rape the willing. Dont be such simple minded sheep. Everything is not black and white.

What disgusts me the most is that she already had four kids before. From her previous marriage. Imagine what those kids (now all grown up) feel about her having done all of this. Or have been asked. Their own blood mother. Being taunted by others about her. It makes me sick just thinking about it. The shame must be unbearable. I feel really sorry for them.

This pedophile should rot in hell. The state left that boy without support and in the hands of this predator. Did she tell her daughters that she is a registered sex offender and that the victim was their father? If a man does something like that, life without parole. WOmen should be treated equally.

Charles Ferdinand (1 year ago)
If this obssesive disgusting sick bitch had been a man, he'd still be in jail and he'd be unequivocally and universally labeled a pedophile (which she is). Kids are naturally stupid so they have to be guided by adults in the form of parents and teachers, but this crazy bitch took advantage of her position instead to rape him, while abandon her kids and husband, so fuck her, I hope they're miserable together, that they can't find a decent job and that this stupid kid beats her every fucking day.

Such a sick lady but she really is pretty. Nice body, lovely demeanor, but what a sick mind! that her beauty hid. She ruined so many lives, hers included. She lied and lied and is so fortunate that the judge could only give her 7 ^2 years. As soon as she got out of jail, boom, she's back preying on that poor kid Vili. She still controls him and they are stuck stuck stuck in the muck muck muck that she created.
Hulkerine100 (2 years ago)
Yeah it was inappropriate at the time but she and Vili were in love. Mary Kay's husband was abusive and never showed any affection, her father was dying from cancer and she was having a breakdown and Vili was there to comfort her. If she was abusing him, he wouldn't drop the case and married her.

ripperduck (2 years ago)
What's a scandal was the waste of resources for this "crime." Look at the courtroom filled with bailiffs, cops, court administrators, on and on for this bullshit. She didn't rape anyone. Stupid yes, but not rape, a woman can't rape a guy who has an erection and is ready to do the deed...
Angelbunnys (2 years ago)
+ripperduck It was an example...when there is a stimuli a person will have a sexual reaction. But like i said if that's what you believe then believe it.
ripperduck (2 years ago)
Try to stay on point. We're not talking about men raping men. This is about a woman supposedly raping a boy. It is impossible for a woman to rape a man unless she overpowers him, and how many woman exist that are capable of doing so? And in this case, there was no rape, it simply didn't happen. As in the case of nearly all of these women who have sex with underage boys, it isn't rape, no matter what a DA says....
Angelbunnys (2 years ago)
+ripperduck Men can be raped. If they aren't consenting to sex then it is rape. If a man penis is being stimulated it is natural for it to be erected. Men get raped in prison all the time so are you saying that isn't rape either. Rape amongst males usually are under reported because people like you do not take it as so. But whatever if you believe it isn't rape then believe that.
ripperduck (2 years ago)
+Angelbunnys No one said it was okay. What I did say was that this thing was blown way out of proportion. beyond any reasonable attempt at justice. And no, a woman cannot rape a man. If a man has an erection and he's capable of doing the deed, then it isn't rape. How in the hell can you even think this way when it was the boy who came after her, not the other way around? He stayed with her, he sought her out, he instigated the entire situation. Is it unorthodox? Yeah, but it isn't rape...
Angelbunnys (2 years ago)
Also, women can rape men. That's like saying a man cannot rape a woman because she was aroused. Your body reacting vs your mind state is totally different. People's body will naturally react to a stimuli.

Everyone thinks this is ok. This is NOT okay! She's disgusting and mentally ill.

This circumstance was horrible for him, and it might take him 30 yrs but one day he will see that!

If this was a male teacher who slept with a 12-13 yr old girl and got her pregnant and claim their in love, it would've been a different reaction.

Angela A. (2 years ago)
I'm 35 now but when I was teaching HS students, I was 27, I never could see the 18 y/o kids in my classes as possible dates, I just saw children with grown bodies! It's even worse with middle school children, we are supposed to do our job, to help them understand this world and be prepared to face it. As teachers, it's against all VALUES and ETHICS, beyond the law, to predate our students and harm them in any way. She took the possibility for this young man to meet a person close to his age and values, she denied him the chances to live other experiences, she took part of his childhood. She is a selfish predator and she should be ashamed of the example she has given to her own kids and the teaching profession. Love is not denying someone the possibility to be happy for your own benefit, also, brain washing a kid with your libido is not love either.

Leslie Churchwell (28 days ago)
Angela A. ,man, u wouldn't faire well where I went to high school...lol. Sooo many women teachers had sex with the teenage guys(that was late 90s but it happened all the way up until and thru then, and I am positive it still happens today, but much more under the radar). It happened with girls too--they are/were always the aggressors thur, but it was not even 1/100 of the amount of women teachers who nade it with the males that was going on). This was too young thow just for today's time and standard... 12 and 13 was a bad choice. She had reasons, but it was no excuse...but,they're still married today and have 2 gorgeous, smart grown daughters(u can see a few docs with interviews from whole family together and separate)...Both were willing participants even thow he was way too young, he was the agressoor, and never forced at ALL...Even his mother liked her, and accepted their relationship after them explaining it... so, I say, how is this worse than so many of the grotesque and dysfunctional marriages and relationships, and parentless kids roaming the streets, etc? It looks far better now. They shoulda waited, but they didnt.. She served her time and it's over and done with. They are BOTH ADULTS NOW,and he or She is free to go at anytime. Maybe they will divorce one day, but they are together now, and pretty "normal", if there is such a thing In this World. We have no reason to judge her or them now just because it is socially unacceptable in this age... it's over and done, and the product didn't turn out bad at all, i'd say. [What makes u better anyway...or so "perfect", i should say.] I know MANY kids and families with lives they try to kill themselves to get away from...this is not a black and white case. It's the most unique shade of grey u could ever find!
La Mangue Douce (9 months ago)
for fuck sake shut up. Some kids are advanced, and more mature than adults. Some adults are lost with their life, and they fall in love. There is NO value when you can condemn both people to suffer, when they were happy together and did nothing but hurt YOU. The way people see this affair is disgusting. Can't you understand that sometimes people need love more than anything else and sometimes kids are smarter than adults ? Ethics is nothing if you can't adapt a rule to the real world when there is exceptions.
Tan Ler (2 years ago)
+Angela Oueslati I did get a chance to look at the most recent Barbara Walters interview and what struck me was that even at 13, Vili was really aggressive and deliberate. His goal was to seduce Mary Kay. So, I think it's completely wrong to depict Mary as a predator. Of course, this in no way contradicts your points about values and ethics. It's very likely that it would have been better if she had turned him down and forced him to find a girl closer to his own age. Then again, Mary faced the music. She did do her 7 1/2 year's jail time, which is no small feat. That was no picnic. She suffered great resentment at the hands of her fellow inmates. So I respect her for this, that she survived the system. Their daughters, now 16 and 17, seem pretty normal and well-grounded. Today, both Vili and Mary Kay say they just wouldn't tolerate any teacher taking advantage of their children. It's not so much because of values and ethics, but because they suffered enough going through all that turmoil.

True Tan Ler. But I wanted to emphasize that we, teachers, are the adults that influence the lives of children and it's our job to encourage them to take good decisions, even in love matters. We hear their problems, we give them advice, some kids don't have good relationship with their parents, we are there to show them they matter. Our image is like a second parent, and this lady took advantage of that. But you're right, that's not love in any circumstance, teacher or not.
