Kelly Lynn Dalecki Sentenced

(St. Augustine, Florida) Last March, former Hartley Elementary School teacher Kelly Lynn Dalecki, 28, pleaded no contest to lewd and lascivious acts on a minor and distributing harmful material to a minor in incidents involving a 13-year-old boy. In the plea agreement, the prosecution wanted Dalecki sentenced to six months in jail.

Interestingly, although the prosecution and defense agreed on sentencing, Judge J.Michael Traynor felt differently and Friday he sentenced Dalecki to 364 days in jail, effectively doubling the time specified by the plea.

In addition to the jail time, Kelly Dalecki, 28, was sentenced to seven years of sexual offender probation. Judge J.Michael Traynor also ordered Daleki to give up her teaching certificate and pay $30,000 in restitution to pay for a camp the boy is attending.
Frankly, I'm glad the judge upped the sentence, but I think that if she were a he, the punishment would be much harsher.
