“He Seduced Me” — Former Teacher Who Slept With Her Student Claims She's The Victim. Photos

A former substitute teacher from Iowa facing sex abuse charges involving one of her students has insisted that she was the real victim in the case and accused her teenage paramour of ruining her life and career.

Read according to Daily Mail; Appearing on the Dr Phil show Monday, Mary Beth Haglin, wearing a striking red mini-dress and matching lipstick, revealed that since her arrest in July, she has turned to stripping in order to make a living, performing under the stage name ‘Bambi.’ Haglin, of Cedar Rapids, pleaded not guilty last month to a charge of misdemeanor sexual exploitation by a school employee in connection to her illicit six-month affair with a student at Washington High School. Her trial date has been set for November 14. The sultry 24-year-old brunette told Dr Phil McGraw that the boy had seduced her with fawning love notes written on Post-Its and twisted her brain into accepting their forbidden love affair, until she became convinced that the pair were in a real relationship, which she could keep a secret. ‘He did so with such intelligence and such an elevated vocabulary that i was completely duped by the whole facade,’ Haglin said on the show. Haglin admitted to having sex with the 17-year-old almost every day for nine months, sometimes in her or his car, other times in the homes of the boy’s parents. Eventually, she said he convinced her to send him sexy photos of herself, including some naked selfies, which he later reportedly shared with his friends at school. ‘I don’t know what was going through his brain,’ Haglin said. ‘He thought it would be cool… bragging rights… I don’t know.’ Haglin said she did not think he would disseminate the intimate snapshots ‘because in my mind if you’re in a real relationship, you don’t just run around with your phone saying, “Hey, look, look everybody, look how hot my girlfriend is.”‘ She added, ‘Looking back now I think, “Oh, my God, what was I thinking? What was I doing?”‘ The 24-year-old woman placed the blame on the teenager, saying that he caught her in her ‘weakest moment,’ at a time she was having trouble with her boyfriend, which made her vulnerable to the underage Casanova’s romantic advances.
