Teacher Jennifer Mally Sentenced

(Phoenix, Arizona) In May 2007, English teacher and cheerleading coach at Paradise Valley High School, Jennifer Mally, was arrested for allegedly engaging in sex with a 16-year-old male student. Mally was charged with multiple counts of sexual conduct with a minor.

In March 2008, Jennifer Mally, 26, pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual conduct with a minor in accordance with a plea agreement. In exchange for her guilty plea, the prosecution dropped 14 counts of sexual conduct with a minor.

Yesterday, Jennifer Mally, now 27, was sentenced by Judge Andrew Klein to six months in prison and ordered to register as a sex offender. The prosecution had asked for five years in prison.

A forensic psychologist testified that Mally had issues. Apparently, she was unable to conduct herself as the adult in the student-teacher relationship and resorted to being "one of the girls" in high school.

Mally wept during the proceedings.
