Police in Davis say they were investigating reports of a teacher having an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year old student when the two went ahead and did something police never expected. They applied for a marriage license.
The teen’s father, William Mann, is broken.
“I’m sick. I’m sick about it. I didn’t want it to happen.”
Mann reluctantly agreed to let his 16-year-old son marry the teacher, 34-year-old Cassandra White.
“We are a small community here,” said Davis Police Chief Dan Cooper. “You read about it in the newspaper but to actually have it happen here in your community, it’s kind of a shocker.”
Police say White has quit her job at the high school. Mann says his son claims he hasn’t had sex with White. We knocked on her door, but no one answered.
So before I even talk about the relationship between Cassandra White and the 16-year old little boy that was nice to her, can we talk about the local Davis police force and the local news station for a second? First, I’m pretty sure a 34-year old woman can’t marry a teenage little boy. It is illegal for a teacher to hook up with a student. It’s wild that the police chief is shrugging and scratching his head saying ‘you read about it but to have it happen here. Shocking.” How about issuing some arrests, guy.
Second, shout out to the local journalist for knocking on Cassandra White’s door for a comment and just walking away when no one answered the door. As someone who has hated every job he’s ever had, I totally respect the complete lack of effort they made to get in contact with this creepy woman. I assume they knocked once and left after a quick 5 seconds.
Shout out to these two love birds though. Can’t wait for their divorce in 24 hours. Dating is hard and sometimes it’s easier to just settle for your teacher.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think this marriage will last right up until this kid’s 18th birthday when he realizes his wife is an old washed up unemployed teacher. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
