I can never wrap my head around this stuff. A teacher at Mountain View High School has been busted for having sex with a student.

26 year old Rebecca E. Mason-Cales of Boise has been charged with six felony counts of sexual battery of a minor.

Investigators say the relationship between Rebecca and the unnamed victim started in August 2017 and that they do not believe she was involved with any other minors.

The West ADA School District received an anonymous tip yesterday that led to the arrest.

I blows my mind that these situations are happening in our own backyard.Most of us remember Mary Kay Letourneau, the Seattle teacher who was caught having an affair with her 12 year old student back in 1996. I had never heard or even imagined anything like that happening prior to that case and although this is a 17 year old which is a far cry from 12 when will people ever learn that these teacher/student relationships just cannot happen without very serious consequences?

We'll keep you updated as this story continues to unfold.
