BEAUFORT, S.C. — A Beaufort County schools spokesman says a psychologist charged with the sexual battery of a student has resigned.

Spokesman Jim Foster tells the Island Packet of Hilton Head that 28-year-old Megan Michelle Snipes resigned Jan. 7. That’s the same day the county education board was to consider allegations she engaged in a sexual act with a 16-year-old male student at Battery Creek High School.

Snipes was arrested Dec. 21 after a Beaufort woman filed a report with the sheriff’s office, accusing her of inappropriate relations with her son.

Deputies say the student and Snipes confirmed they had sexual contact in October. An order from the state education board says Snipes told officers that, in hindsight, the Facebook messages she shared with the teen could be considered inappropriate and “flirty.”

Sometimes I think the whole world has gone plumb crazy.

It's realy quite simple corgimom

Let's see...we told God to take a hike, removed prayer to God from schools, and laughed His word (the Bible) to scorn. With the underpinnings of our society removed, the fences He gave us dividing right from wrong are quickly disappearing and every person is free to do whatever is "right" in his/her own eyes. The prophet Jeremiah said, "The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked". We saw in Nazi Germany how bad it can get. We are about to see it again. It won't happen overnight, but it is inevitable. I'm sorry.

1 might need might need to sayitagain! People who believe in God's word aren't really surprised by all this...disappointed, yes, but not surprised. The morale fiber of this world is quickly becoming unraveled. Satan is sitting back, laughing, while we do the dirty work for him.
Honestly, there are MANY times I have though how much better it'd be to just stick my head in the TV, no internet, no newspapers, no radio, no nuthin'! Yes, I'd become more ignorant, but, as the old saying goes, sometimes ignorance is bliss!

Nothing new---this has always

Nothing new---this has always gone on in schools. 50 years ago, some men teachers went with high school girls. We report these incidents now because we have laws to protect young people.

Why do these people do it?

Why do these people do it? Risk your good name, your career, violate your professional ethics, for what?
