Strict Muslim Miss jailed for sex with teens
A TEACHER who had sex with teen students, aged 14- 16, blamed her strict Muslim upbringing for her randy ways.
Linda Hardan, 22 ( above), was sentenced to three years in jail after pleading guilty to sending sexually explicit text messages and engaging in sex acts with students while a supply teacher at Manchester Regional High School, Haledon, New Jersey.
Defence lawyer Alissa Hascup argued her sexual activities with students had been in part a result of her religious upbringing, and suggested that serving time in prison would do no good, asking that she be treated by a therapist under strict supervision instead.
But prosecutors said Hardan had sent 40 images of herself “in varying states of undress” to a boy, 14, then drove him to the Great Falls in Paterson, New Jersey, where she committed a sexual act on him.
