A special education teacher who admitted having sex with a 17-year-old student and oral sex with six other teens has been jailed in Nevada.
Bethyl Shepherd was told she must serve 60 days behind bars Thursday – despite pleas from the Reno victims’ parents that she be spared the time.
Even prosecutors said they did not want the 35-year-old mother of two jailed after it was revealed bi-polar disorder could have fuelled her sexual misconduct.
But rejecting a plea for probation, a judge said she must serve at least 60 days with the remainder of her 19 month to four year sentence suspended.
Shepherd was also told she can never be around minors, apart from her children, and not allowed to drink alcohol during her five years of probation.
