The lead of this article reads:

“A Boynton Beach music teacher seduced one of her 11-year-old students and carried on a 19-month sexual relationship with him until the boy’s stepmother stumbled upon evidence of their escapades Tuesday, authorities said.”

Does anyone else think the word “seduced” is an odd choice in describing the ongoing molestation of an eleven-year-old boy?
