A former Wisconsin school teacher was sentenced to just 2 years in prison after being convicted by a judge for having sex with a minor in her care.
The former teacher admitted to the court that she had sex with her 16-year-old victim dozens of times in her classroom.
It was only when another student began to get suspicious that the affair was called off.
The Daily Mail reports:
Novak pleaded no contest in April to three of the 12 felony counts of sexual assault of a student by school staff filed in December 2015.
In addition to the prison term, Novak will serve three years of supervised release. She will be unable to work in any school setting, including as a volunteer at her own children’s schools, and must register as a sex offender.
Novak reportedly admitted to police that she’d had intercourse and oral sex more than a dozen times in her classroom with the student, now 17.
She also admitted that although she knew the relationship was wrong, it was mutual and the two had ‘very strong feelings for each other’, according to the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.
The boy had reportedly agreed not to tell anyone about their relationship but, in December 2015, another teacher allegedly saw Novak and the boy embracing, and possibly kissing, inside her classroom and made a report.
Novak was married at the time of her affair with the student. Her husband filed for divorce on the same day that she was seen in court, in 2015.
Recently, Novak was arrested again after she had shown up, visibly intoxicated, to her ex husband’s house, yelling profanities and him and his girlfriend.
Novak will have a nice long time in prison to think about what she did to her victims.
