According to an admittedly unscientific survey by Houston PR firm Drive West Communications, Texas has the most incidents of illegal teacher-student sex of any state in the nation.

(Alabama is head of the class for this dishonor on a per capita basis.) Drive West, helmed by Terry Abbott, a former Houston Independent School District press secretary and later U. Department of Education chief of staff, found that were 179 such Texas incidents last year, up 27 percent from three years before.

Abbott admitted that his survey is based on published media reports rather than official crime data, hence the unscientific nature of the survey.

When they turn sour, the risks to all parties to the relationship can be very high.

If the student complains of sexual harassment, the risks to the faculty member and the university are high indeed.

In North Carolina and Ohio, as in Connecticut, these provisions apply even if the student is 18 or older. 53a-71, a person is guilty of sexual assault in the second degree when he (1) engages in sexual intercourse with a minor who is 13, 14, or 15 and (2) is more than three years older than the minor.

However, the crime also includes cases in which a school employee engages in sexual intercourse with a student enrolled in a school in which he works or a school under the jurisdiction of the local or regional school board that employs him.

The recent decision of the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal in the case of Fariba Mahmoodi, a student who accused her professor of sexual harassment, has once again focussed attention on a controversial issue. Mahmoodi complained to the tribunal that Donald Dutton, a psychology professor at the University of British Columbia, and UBC as his employer, had sexually harassed her.
