CORONA, Calif. (AP) - A former Riverside County high school teacher who admitted having sex with five male students has been sentenced to three years in state prison.
KNBC-TV reports Summer Michelle Hansen sobbed and apologized for her actions before the judge sentenced her on Friday. The 32-year-old, who taught at Centennial High in Corona, could have faced up to 13 years in prison.
The special-education teacher pleaded guilty to seven felony counts including statutory rape unlawful oral copulation with a minor.
A mother of one of the victims called the three-year sentence a slap on the wrist and called Hansen a predator.
Prosecutors identified five boys under age 18 who allegedly had sexual contact with the teacher on school grounds, in a car, and at the home of one of the teens.
None of the alleged victims were her students.
