Janet McLaren, 36, of Tweed, Ontario has been convicted of sending nude selfies to eight students and having sex with the young boys.
According to The Daily Mail, McLaren was a middle school teacher who engaged in various sex acts with boys 13-18.
Her defense was that the boys blackmailed her by threatening to release nude photos that one of the boys found on her phone.
The court heard that the boy showed the nude pictures to his friends during her French class at Tweed Elementary School. It was alleged that after McLaren, who also goes by the name Jaclyn Jones, asked him to give the phone back to her, one of the boys demanded more pictures in exchange for their silence.
The Canadian judge rejected her defense and found the former teacher guilty. She was originally charged with 42 different charges, but those were reduced to six crimes.
The court ordered McLaren to serve two years in prison, register as a sex offender, and stay away from children.
