(Mandan, North Dakota) Yesterday, a jury convicted former Hebron High School teacher Jennifer Katherine Schultz, 25, of distributing alcohol to minors but acquitted her on charges of sexual assault of students.
Schultz was a family and consumer science teacher at Hebron High School. She resigned during an investigation into her alleged actions last winter.Closing out the case, South Central District Judge Thomas Schneider sentenced Schultz to one year in jail with all but 60 days suspended and fined her $500.
The state agreed to drop a charge of Class A misdemeanor corruption or solicitation of a minor when it concluded its case Wednesday afternoon at the Morton County Courthouse in Mandan.
Morton County Assistant State's Attorney Jackson Lofgren said this was because none of the state's witnesses could remember Schultz asking them for sex.
