Teacher Kristen Margrif guilty of rape of 16-year-old student, judge delays sentence for one yearCARO -- A 28-year-old teacher has lost her job, her marriage and - possibly - her career for her sexual encounters with a 16-year-old male student last summer. But Kristen A. Margrif avoided jail or prison - for now - when a Tuscola County judge delayed her sentence for one year on Tuesday. If the former Kingston Community School District English teacher obeys the rules of her probation for the next 12 months, she also could avoid having felonies on her record. At that point, however, she would stand convicted of three counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, high-court misdemeanors carrying a maximum penalty of two years in prison. Full story...
Another Woman Gets No Jail Time
English teacher, 27, had relations numerous times with 16-year-old A Michigan woman is following in the path of other female teachers who rape their students by receiving no jail time. Kristen Margrif, 27, of Mayville, Mich., was given a one-year delayed sentence on three felony counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a student. Tuscola County Circuit Judge Patrick Joslyn said if Margrif remains trouble-free for a year, prosecutors will reduce the charges to three counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, which are misdemeanors, meaning she'll only have to serve probation.
