Idaho Teacher Gets Prison for Sex with Boy, 13 - Updated

(Boise, Idaho) With additional details revealed today in court, former middle school teacher Ashley Jo Beach, 38, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for engaging in sex with a 13-year-old boy for several months. She will be eligible for parole in four years.
Prosecutors said Beach would buy the boy shoes and clothes and that she said he was the 'light of her life." Prosecutors said that the former teacher, who admitted that she loved and needed him, wanted the boy to mow her lawn and babysit her three children.

It was also revealed that Beach, who's birthday was Tuesday, was having an inappropriate relationship with five other students. She has since written apology letters to those teenagers. Details of those relationships include talking about getting "tipsy" and other inappropriate matters.

In court, Beach said losing her job was punishment enough and that she hopes she can talk to other teachers about her wrong-doings and help prevent any future inappropriate teacher, student relationships.
It's not known whether Beach will be required to register as a sex offender.

(Meridian, Idaho) A 37-year-old math and science teacher at Meridian Middle School, Ashley Jo Beach, was arrested yesterday for allegedly engaging in a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old former male student.

Beach faces a felony charge of lewd conduct with a child under 16.
It started with a call from neighbors in the area of Cherry Lane and Vineyards - who say they saw something suspicious about 9:30 p.m.

When officers arrived, they say Beach and the boy were between a fence and some bushes, laying down - partially concealed from view. They questioned Beach and the child, and said there were inconsistencies in their stories.

Detectives started investigating and say they found that Beach had been involved in a sexual relationship with the boy since April.
Beach was booked into custody at the Ada County Jail. She faces arraignment today.
