Something that still bothers me..

Former teacher, gave birth to child from incestuous affair, self admitted, paternity test done by state and verified dna... and still not in jail.

"Michelle VanMeter, 35, who is listed in court records as living in the 2100 block of Vance Avenue, is charged with three counts of child molesting, three counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and one count of sexual battery.

VanMeter had not been booked into Allen County Lockup by Sunday evening."

Karen "tough on crime" Richards hasn't met a sex offender that shouldn't receive a lenient sentence. Is this the best we can do in this county? How does a poor excuse for a prosecutor like Richards run unopposed?

I do hope they give her a harsh sentence, and find a good home for the infant.

She probably is not considered a flight risk since she confessed. They would place a lower priority on collaring her than a violent suspect, or a suspect who was likely to flee. They'll arrest her soon, if they haven't already.

She was arrested last Thursday, the NS gives a little more detail.

Jennifer - Your choice of the word "incestuous" in this affair is not correct - she was in no way related to the 15 year-old - it's still wrong, but not incestuous. John B. Kalb

John,

I see your point, I guess I was referring to the fact it was siblings she was violating and that a child was produced.

I could have used better word choice.

Hi, If this was a man he would have been arrested the day he confessed but it took two months. I don't see why this hasn't hit national news. I think when convicted she should get the stiffest punishment for her crimes! R. M. K.
