If Shannon Young is lucky, her picture won't be splashed across media sites like Debra Lafave or Pamela Rogers Turner or Mary Kay Letourneau-Fauulau or, the latest woman accused of sexing an underage boy, Stephanie Ragusa, who was just sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Young, 36, is charged with three counts of unlawful sexual relations with a 17-year-old male student, identified as GJF, between August 1,
2009, and June 2, 2010. Prosecutors say the sex was consensual (save the 'but she's hot" comments).
Young is a former teacher and volleyball coach at Pleasant Ridge High
School in Easton, Kansas. She was arrested yesterday around 10 a.m. -- without enough warning to pull down her Facebook page. Here's a superficial look at Young's interests and wisdom.

If you missed out on what happened this month, you're in luck -- we look back on all the moments we captured during the month of June in this slideshow. You can also share snapshots you've taken this month -- or anytime -- in the Pitch's Flickr pool.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe says that his teammates aren't mad at him about his now infamous interview with ESPN The Magazine in which he claimed his teammates used social networking to import NFL groupies while on the road.
"No, because now they are finding out it definitely wasn't me," Bowe said during an interview with 790 the Fan in Atlanta. "But I took that like a man. People that really know the Dwayne Bowe that clowns but on a serious note won't let anything out of the locker room that is not supposed to be out."
