    I understand what David54's saying: what that girl did or didn't do is irrelevant.  She was the victim of a crime.  Even if she had been pursuing this teacher sexually, she was a child in his care, so she wasn't responsible.  
    Pointing out her behavior on any level smacks of victim-blaming, and in this case it seems the judge and defendant tried to invent some non-existent slut-shaming to make themselves feel better (about being lascivious, unconscionable pricks).
