Teacher Facing 18 Felonies For Raping Student Gets Only 2 Years Under Plea Deal

GIna Murry was facing 17 years in prison for repeatedly raping a student but it was reduced to two years by a plea deal.

Los Angeles, CA – A female Los Angeles high school teacher charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old male student by penetrating him with a foreign object will get only two years in prison under a plea deal.

Gina Murry, 33, was arrested in September of 2018 and initially charged with 18 felonies including unlawful sexual intercourse and sexual penetration with a foreign object, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Murry, a teacher at Esteban Torres High School’s Renaissance Academy, was later released on a $250,000 bond.

Prosecutors alleged that the sexual interludes between Murry and the student took place in May and June of 2018.

But in July, the victim filed a civil lawsuit against the former teacher and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) that alleged sexual assault and battery, sexual harassment, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress actually went started in Augusts of 2017 when she became his mentor, KNBC.

According to the lawsuit, the school principal put the boy under Murry’s supervision after he had been bullied by other students his freshman year of high school.

The suit alleged that Murry groomed the student with lots of special treatment such as buying him gifts and playing video games with him.

The complaint said that when Murry and the student went on an overnight field trip, the teacher sexually abused him in her personal car and in a tent that she shared with him, according to KNBC.

In the lawsuit, the now-16-year-old victim claimed that Murry had also molested him many other times on school grounds and at school-sanctioned events.

The sexual assaults didn’t end until other students saw Murry sexually harassing their classmate and reported it to the school administrators, KNBC reported.

Murry pleaded no contest on Nov. 5 to one count of performing a lewd act on a child and one count of oral copulation on a person under 16-years-old in accordance with her plea agreement with prosecutors, the Los Angeles Times reported.

She had faced up to 17 years in prison under the original charges, but her sentence was significantly reduced after the district attorney’s office dropped the other 16 felony counts in the plea deal.

Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office Spokesman Greg Risling said Murry was scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 14, 2020, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Risling said she was expected to get two years in prison, in accordance with the plea agreement.

What a disgusting human being, and shame in the District for dropping most of the charges. If the teacher had been a make, and the victim a young girl, people would be calling for the teacher’s head on a pike. That is a horrible message to boys.

What is it with these attractive but warped teachers molesting teens? Can’t they find a date on Tinder?

Under normal circumstances I'd say the boy was eating this up but I'm sure the penetration with the "foreign object" was a little more than he bargained for.

Can you imagine the public outcry if this had been a male teacher?

"A male Los Angeles high school teacher charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old female student by penetrating her with a foreign object will get only two years in prison under a plea deal.

John Murry, 33, was arrested in September of 2018 and initially charged with 18 felonies including unlawful sexual intercourse and sexual penetration with a foreign object, according to the Los Angeles Times."

There would be protests in the street demanding the DA's resignation

Another bullshit “DEAL”. These deals need to stop why do we even have laws if they make a deal for everything I believe it’s one of the major reasons why people continue to do these horrific crimes because they know no matter what they’re going to get a deal. What the hell is wrong with our legal system with our prosecutors and our judges are you too damn afraid do your jobs? How are you actually protecting the American people but all you do is make deals deals deals all day long I myself just seen such a deal my sister and her husband Were killed by a drunk driver and the son of a bitch got off with 10 years for both of them 10 years and this wasn’t his first time so tell me how the hell are laws and our legal system are working I’d say piss poor myself don’t worry about anything don’t make a deal for you

Another pedophile teacher getting a slap on the wrist. We all know what a man in the same position would get. The bias is favour of women in the justice system is disgusting and wrong. This has been going on for a very long time and should be stopped.

I’ve got a deal for you sweetheart; 15 years without the possibility of parole - life as a registered sex offender. Re-offend: back inside for life. The law needs to tighten up on the pedo teacher issue. Gender should be a detail of the event - not a mitigation during trial penalty phase.

Common place anymore. I wonder how many incidents such as this go unreported?

Teenage boys have emotional distress from NOT being screwed (I mean sexually assaulted). I do agree that the maturity level impacts how well young people handle their sexual exploits. Boys want relief and girls want attention many times and aren’t ready for sex.

Apparently these boys aren’t emotionally ready for sex because they’re crying to mommy about it.
