ALFRED, Maine (AP) - A former Maine teacher is going to prison for seven years for having sex with a 15-year-old student.
Thirty-six-year-old Jessica Pomerleau of Limerick pleaded guilty Thursday in York County Superior Court to two counts of gross sexual assault and two counts of aggravated furnishing of scheduled drugs.
Pomerleau was sentenced to 12 years, with five of those years suspended. Following her sentence, she'll be on probation for six years and have to register as a sex offender for 10 years.
Pomerleau was a special education teacher at Massabesic High School in Waterboro when she was arrested last fall.
Prosecutors say the victim told investigators there were at least seven sexual encounters, and that Pomerleau also provided the boy with marijuana and alcohol.
