This story has all the fixings of a delicious scandal: A former supervisor at a youth detention facility slept with a 17-year-old boy she was responsible for supervising—then continued the affair after he escaped, the Associated Press reported.
Beccy Hasselbarth, 36, of Murrieta, Calif., was sentenced to a year in jail after pleading guilty to several felony sex charges; plus three years' probation. Hasselbarth also has to register as a sex offender. Bet she's wishing she'd had an affair with a 17-year-old in a state where that's actually legal. She was found out when the guy was arrested yet again and told a social worker in Los Angeles of his relationship with Hasselbarth.
The affair, which prosecutors said lasted from February 2005 through October of the same year, was with a young man held as an inmate at Los Pinos Youth Facility in Orange County. His charges? Robbery, grand theft, domestic violence and vandalism. Hasselbarth, hopeless romantic she is, allegedly gave the troubled teen cash after his escape from the youth facility in November 2005.
Some chicks just can't resist “bad boys.”
