To make a long story short, this shows how "Morally Challenged" America has become; especially subtitling it "All-American Girl". They turned a case of pedophilia and statutory rape into "Romeo and Juliet." The USA network was fastest to jump on this media hyped story and redramatized it!
They distorted a couple of things to make it palatable, first they hired a 19 year-old actor to play Mary Kay's 12-year old lover. Secondly it tells the women of America that it is okay to commit pedophilia if your husband is an insensitive jerk! But the movie, and the media failed to ask the tough questions! Like; what if it were a man, that had a baby with one of his sixth grade students? Will he be portrayed as a victim, or will he be instantly prosecuted and put under the jail?
If the teacher were male then the viewers would see this story for what it is; sensationalizing a story about a teacher that put their emotional needs and desires ahead of the well being of a child!
