It’s difficult to image a teacher doing something more twisted than feeding her class semen-laced cupcake, but that’s what a now former teacher in Louisiana did.
The sick, disgusting act will result in Cynthia Perkins, 36, forfeiting the next 40 years of her life, which will be spent in prison.
Perkins was sentenced to 41 years, with no possibility of parole for 40 years, after admitting that she gave her students cupcakes laced with her husband’s sperm. She was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to second-degree rape, production of child pornography and conspiracy of mingling harmful substances, according to The Advocate.
Facing a total of 150 felony charges including rape, child pornography, sexual battery of a child and video voyeurism stemming from a sweeping 2019 child pornography probe, Perkins struck a deal with prosecutors in the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office, agreeing to testify against her ex-husband, former Livingston Sheriff’s SWAT lieutenant Dennis Perkins, the newspaper reported.
“These three [charges] we thought [were] representative of what she had done and by agreeing to the facts as we put them out on the record, she prepared herself to testify against Dennis Perkins,” Assistant Louisiana Attorney General Barry Milligan told WTRF.
The couple was arrested in 2019 after authorities received a tip and charged with sexually abusing a child together, and other crimes. Investigators would find nude photos of them with the victim.
Her attorneys suggested Perkins, who taught at Westside Junior High School, was influenced in part by her former husband, and she offered a tearful apology for her crimes in the courtroom.
“To the family of the victims, I can’t imagine what this whole process has been like for you,” Judge Erika Sledge said, according to The Advocate. “To the juvenile victim, I hope this has given her some sense of closure.”
The father of one juvenile victim read a statement from their child directed at Cynthia Perkins.
“You are a selfish and horrible person, and I hope you rot in prison,” the victim said in the statement, adding, “I wrote this to let you know that you didn’t break me down.”
Perkins’ attorney, Paul ‘Woody’ Scott, said she “looks forward” to testifying against her ex-husband.
“He is the real monster. That’s what she wants to make clear,” Scott said, according to WTRF. “It’s not about shifting blame, she took responsibility today. I mean, that’s what she did, but, she looks forward going after the real monster.”
The reaction online seemed to center on the length of the sentence, with some looking no further that the cupcakes while others stress that there was also sexual abuse of a minor.
Here’s a quick sampling of the responses from Twitter:
Can we agree that the headline is not why she got 41 years?

I can’t help but think that something is wrong when you can spend less time in jail for killing someone. Regardless of state of mind.

Something more than that, yet, yeah 41 years sounds a bit too much.

She was looking at life. She plea bargained to turn state’s evidence. At 38, this is an effective life sentence.

I think 40 years without parole is a righteous sentence for anyone sexually abusing a child. But re the cupcakes: What makes people think it‘s a cool idea to do this?

No sentence is too short for feeding kids semen imo, but my question does become why do other people whom have committed murder, violent rapes, and numerous violent assaults that have left some people paralized or with lifelong health problems; why have they gotten less?
