Carrie Shafer, Married teacher found partially naked in car with 17-year-old student avoids jail


Carrie Shafer, 39-years-old biology teacher at duPont Manual High School, was arrested in March when police caught her partially clothed with a 17-year-old male student in a car.

According to a police report, the car was in a handicapped space and the windows were steamed. Shafer and the student were found partially clothed and a used condom was found outside the vehicle, police said.
Shafer, who was married and has two children, faced charges of unlawful transaction with a minor for giving the boy alcohol and unauthorized parking in a handicapped zone.
In the beginning of the June 2011 Shafer was indicted on a a new felony charge, custodial interference.

Soon after the new charge Shafer made plea deal with prosecutors, and pleaded guilty to both charges. She received a three-year sentence for the custodial interference charge and 12 months for the unlawful transaction with a minor charge. Those sentences will run concurrently and came with a recommendation on diversion -- a type of supervised probation. If Shafer follows the rules, she will not face ANY jail time.

The plea agreement won't require her to register as a sex offender and states that the case can be dismissed once she completes the terms of her supervised probation. She must pay a $1,000 fine and continue “to attend counseling to address any psychiatric issues.” She cannot do work that would put her in a position of trust, and she is not allowed to have alcohol.

Shafer could legally try to get a teaching job after her probation is completed, but may have difficulty getting hired.

Shafer resigned from Manual shortly after she was arrested. She had taught in the school system since 2007 and had no previous disciplinary record.
