California Teacher Gets Jail for Sex with Student - Update

(Placer County, California)
A former Newcastle special-education teacher was ordered Thursday to serve 90 days in Placer County jail on a sex-abuse conviction related to a relationship she admitted having with a 16-year-old former student.

Jennifer Lynn Woods, 36, had pleaded guilty in June to two felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. On Thursday, Judge Richard Couzens sentenced Woods to a total term of 365 days in jail and placed her on probation for five years.

The victim, now 18 and graduated from high school, had a 13-month affair with Woods, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. With the guilty plea, Woods’ teaching credential was revoked. Defense attorney Bradley Wishek said Woods’ marriage has ended.
Judge Couzens ruled that Woods won't have to register as a sex offender since a pre-sentence evaluation indicated she is not a sexual predator.
