Washington Teacher Gets Treatment for Sex with Boy, 12 - Update
Keshia T. Shaw
(Tacoma, Washington) Earlier today, former sixth-grade teacher at Gray Middle School Keshia Shaw pleaded guilty to raping a 12-year-old male student. She was sentenced to sex offender treatment.
Pierce County Superior Court Judge John McCarthy ordered Shaw to complete two more months in home detention with an electronic monitoring device and to begin sex-offender treatment.So, no jail for sex with a 12-year-old. Quite compassionate, eh?
Her treatment progress will be monitored by the court for five years.
She must also register as a sex offender and be subject to ongoing monitoring for life under a provision known as lifetime community custody.
One factor McCarthy considered in his sentence was Shaw's need for medical treatment. Her attorneys submitted a statement from Shaw's physician stating her need for specialized medical treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS) and other medical conditions.
