WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita substitute teacher has pleaded to a lesser charge in a sex case involving a teenage girl.

Thirty-one-year-old Jarrod Alan Acquistapace will be sentenced May 22 on two counts of indecent liberties with a child.

The Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office says Acquistapace pleaded guilty to the reduced charge on Monday. He had originally been charged with aggravated indecent liberties with a child, which alleged he had sex with a 15-year-old girl.

The Wichita Eagle reports the reduced charge accuses Acquistapace of lewdly touching the girl, which would make him eligible for probation.

Wichita school officials said last year that Acquistapace’s a substitute teacher from September 2011 to October 2013, but would not say how often he worked or at which schools.

      How long will it be before the so-called “victim” acts on her urges again. How many more men will have to go to jail because this girl is promiscuous? She is 15 and was not forcibly raped. Mom and Dad should have kept a closer eye on their little girl who has obviously grown up faster than either of them realized.

    My experience today made it easier for me to understand how this can happen. Two teenage girls and their mothers were ordering food in line ahead of me. They had just come from some dance routine and were wearing short short nylon stretch panties that revealed every dimple, pimple, mole and more. It was hard to look away. I later asked another lady who had a young pre-teen daughter if she would ever allow her daughter to dress that way. She said she would and appeared insulted that I would have even noticed. I asked her if she wanted every man in the place to be looking at her daughter’s behind. She said she didn’t think most men thought like that. Lady, you are wrong. When a man get that kind of visual, the testosterone takes over. Some men either cannot or will not control their temptations. Mothers need to wise up and at least make your daughters dress appropriately when in public. I am happy the thought police were not on duty or I would have been in jail. Instead, I came home and took a cold shower because I felt so dirty.
