BELLEVUE, Wash. — A 33-year-old literature teacher at Bellevue’s Interlake High School has been charged with sexual misconduct for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student.

Prosecutors say teacher Patrick Colgan started a sexual relationship with the student in March and continued to send her sexual e-mails even after she ended the relationship in June.

Colgan was arrested Nov. 7 and booked into the King County Jail. He is now out of jail on $10,000 bail.

    these “STUDENTS” should be held accountable in some way. they are old enough to know better too. I sympathize with these teachers that have to see these girls looking like hookers everyday, cuz their parents allow them to look like that. I know I know..that shouldn’t mean men have the right to take advantage-but hey, it’s the real world..GIRLS..START DRESSING LIKE YOU WANT MEN TO TREAT YOU-WITH RESPECT!!

      He pursued her, she broke off the relationship and he continued to harass her. Stop attacking a 17 year old girl and become a respectable human being.
