A judge in Massachusetts gave a teacher probation when she pleaded guilty to statutory rape for running off with a 15-year old student  because he says he does not see her as a sexual predator. Lisa Lavoie and the boy were found in West Virginia after they were reported missing two years ago. Prosecutors wanted five to seven years in prison for Lavoie. But Judge Cornelius Moriarty says he doesn't think Lavoie will reoffend and instead sentenced her to five years probation. He says the teacher's interest in the boy's well-being is what led the boy to his sexual interest in her. She is ordered not to have contact with the boy or his family.
