A Teacher's Crime is a 2008 made-for-television movie that tells the story of a high school English teacher, Carrie Ryans (played by Ashley Jones), who begins a dangerous love affair with one of her students, Justin (played by Erik Knudsen). The movie begins by introducing Carrie as a talented and dedicated teacher, who is admired by her colleagues and respected by her students. She is married to an architect, Doug (played by Chris Mulkey), and they have a young son together.

However, Carrie's life takes a dramatic turn when she becomes infatuated with Justin, a student in her class. At first, their relationship is innocent enough, with Carrie offering to help Justin with his studies and offer emotional support when he confides that his father is absent and his mother is struggling with addiction.

However, as their relationship deepens, it becomes clear that Carrie is no longer able to maintain the boundary between teacher and student. She starts to become obsessed with Justin, phoning him at all hours of the night and demanding that he spend time with her outside of school. Eventually, they embark on a sexual relationship that leads to a series of dangerous and illegal actions.

The consequences of their actions are severe, and Carrie's life begins to unravel as her affair with Justin becomes public knowledge. Her reputation as a teacher is destroyed, and she faces criminal charges that threaten to tear apart her family.

Throughout the movie, the audience is left to question who is to blame for the situation. Is it Carrie, who should have known better than to cross the line between teacher and student? Or is it Justin, who was underage and vulnerable to Carrie's advances?

A Teacher's Crime is a gripping movie that explores the taboo subject of teacher-student relationships. It is a cautionary tale about the dangers of crossing professional and personal boundaries, and the devastating impact that can have on everyone involved. The movie is well-acted, with Ashley Jones giving a compelling performance as Carrie, and Erik Knudsen portraying Justin as an angsty teenager struggling to navigate his own emotions.

Overall, A Teacher's Crime is a thought-provoking movie that raises important questions about consent and responsibility. It is a movie that will stay with viewers long after the credits roll, and is definitely worth watching.
