A female teacher who was convicted of raping a 12-year-old student has been released due to her declining health.
A Pierce County Judge sentenced Keshia Shaw, a former teacher from Tacoma who pleaded guilty to second-degree child rape, was released from the last two months of her six-month jail sentence because her attorneys successfully argued that she could not get the medication she needs in jail. According to the Libertarian Republic,
“Shaw was sentenced to five years of Sexual Offender Sentence Alternative and will receive treatment outside of prison due to the jail not having the medication she needs to treat her symptoms. She will be GPS monitored on house arrest for 6 months and is unable to have contacts with minors other than her two daughters.”
