The Monster Gets Off the Hook

  • Print

This is 44 year old Anne Knopf.

In 2008 the substitute teacher was convicted of sexual degree sexual assault after she repeatedly had sex with 13 year old Jacob Brekken at her home while other members of her family slept in other areas of the house. 

Brekken sued the dirty teacher for battery, emotional distress and defamation.

It took a Pierce County jury about three hours this week to decide that although Knopf's conduct was extreme and outrageous, she had no intentional offensive conduct with Brekken, and did not intend to cause emotional stress to Brekken.

Huh? She was 44 and had sex with a 13 year old boy.
