Jim Parsons may not live a very scandalous life, but sometimes scandal finds you anyway.
It seems that one of Jim's oldest friends, to whom he referred in his 2010 Emmys speech, has been arrested for having an improper relationship with his student.
Greg Stanley, who was The Big Bang Theory star's college roommate, had been teaching theater arts at the College Station High School.
He was arrested last month after allegedly inviting a 17-year-old student to his home, giving him alcohol, and "initiated unwanted sexual contact" with him.
In a recording made later, Stanley reportedly offered the student a lofty student organization position in exchange for his silence.
Stanley is being charged with Improper Relationship between Educator and Student, a 2nd degree felony that could land him up to 20 years in prison.
"They were friends but have not been in contact for several years."
