Vermont Teacher Gets No Jail for Sex with Student - Update

(Burlington, Vermont) Former teacher Giovanna Yaranga has been sentenced in accordance with a plea agreement.
She would admit having sex with a teenage student throughout the 2012-13 school year.

She would receive a prison sentence of up to four years, but it would be suspended, keeping her on probation — and under the constant threat of jail if she steps out of line. She would be listed on the state sex-offender registry for a decade and would undergo counseling.

A judge outlined the plea agreement and all the rights the teacher would give up by agreeing to the arrangement with prosecutors.
Even though she gets no jail, Yaranga cried in court while whimpering that she was so sorry.

Vermont Teacher Accused of Sex with Student
[Previous 5/6/13 post]
(Burlington, Vermont) A 44-year-old Spanish teacher at Burlington High School, Giovanna Yaranga, has been accused of engaging in multiple sex episodes with a 17-year-old male student.

Yaranga faces four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
Chittenden County State’s Attorney T.J. Donovan said the investigation started after police found Yaranga and a teenage boy in the back seat of a car behind a building at about 8 p.m. on April 29.

Yaranga told police she was a teacher and the boy was a student and they were in the back seat because they needed more leg room, Detective Pete Chapman said in a court affidavit.
Details on booking are not available.
