(Rice Lake, Wisconsin)
A special education teacher who was found guilty of having sex with two underage students and bombarding them with nude photos of herself will serve only six months in jail.Pretty lenient, I suggest.
Andrea Ebert, 31, from Wisconsin, was sentenced yesterday to the jail time plus three years in probation after being found guilty in July of two felony counts of sexual assault.
In addition to the jail time and probation, Ebert is required to perform 500 hours of community service and will have to register as a sex offender for 15 years.
