A former Muenster teacher arrested last year for having sex with two teen boys has avoided jail time in a plea deal with prosecutors.
Lynn Burge, 33, was given five years probation and a $2,500 fine for each offense, according to the District Attorney. She will have to surrender her teaching license. Burge will not have to register as a sex offender.
Burge pleaded guilty to two counts of improper relationship between an educator and a student. One count of online solicitation of a minor was dropped as part of the agreement.
An arrest warrant states Burge started in the fall of 2017 by sending nude pictures of herself to a 16-year-old boy through Snapchat. She then went “backroading” and drank alcohol with him before taking the student home to have sex.
In March 2018, she pulled the same routine with an 18-year-old male student.
She admitted to having sex with the 18-year-old, which is illegal because she was his teacher at the time. She admitted to almost everything the 16-year-old boy said happened, but told investigators she couldn’t remember if they had sex since she was also intoxicated at the time.
