Jaclyn McLaren was arrested and sentenced to two years in prison after she pleaded guilty to seven sex-related charges. She then must register as a sex offender for the rest of her life and have “sexual treatment.”
The teacher originally faced 42 charges involving eight boys as young as 13, in which, six of them were identified as her students.
The French teacher, McLaren, who will be on two years probation after her release, was banned from having any contact with the victims and families and using any social media.
The “predator” will also not be allowed near playgrounds or public places where children could be present for 10 years after her probation.
According to reports, in 2014, she “purchased beer and consumed it with two boys, then engaged in sexual activity with them in her vehicle. She performed oral sex on both boys before she left.”
McLaren, who was married in 2010, gave oral sex to them separately later and one sent her a photo of his genitals, court documents says.
She also allegedly had intercourse with another boy at her home who by then just turned 18. The incident was detailed in phone messages uncovered by local authorities.
Though she claimed she was not aware the boys were minors, but she also did not take necessary steps to confirm their age.
“There are eight victims who received explicit material from Ms. McLaren,” prosecutor Lynn Ross told the court in Belleville. “Six of the victims were former students of Ms McLaren.”
It wasn’t until February 2016 that an investigation against the teacher was started after a parent of one of McLaren’s victims became suspicious about the nature of the teacher’s relationship with their son.
“Not once did it cross my mind that I would be delivering my son to a predator,” the mother said, “I’m completely disgusted. It sickens me.”
