She told ITV's Tonight programme the law was wrong because a teacher could legally enter a relationship with a sixth former at another school.
Child protection professionals have criticised her comments.
The plea and sentence are the result of a plea deal with the district attorney’s office that was reached after Forsythe’s challenge to state law defining rape was rejected.
Forsythe admitted having sex with the then 18-year-old girl. I mean an 18-year-old sorority girl can hook up with the 32-year-old assistant football coach and they’d both think it’s cool, but when you slightly change their titles, it becomes a crime.
State law prohibits sex between a student younger than 20 and an employee of the student’s public school or vocational system who is older than 18. I don’t want this to come across like I’m defending the perv, but outside of prostitution, how can it be a crime for a consenting adult to have sex with another consenting adult?

Protecting children Later, Miss Keates told the BBC the NASUWT had raised the anomaly as soon as the legislation was drafted and that it advises members to keep relationships professional at all times.
"Any teacher or adult who works in schools who sexually abuses a pupil of any age should face the full legal consequences," she added.
'Appropriate sanctions' She said: "If a teacher has a relationship with a pupil at the school at which they teach, it could be an 18-year-old pupil in sixth form, then that teacher can be prosecuted and end up on the sex offenders register.
