A judge has sentenced a former California special education high school teacher to three years in prison, after admitting to having sex with five underage male students.

Summer Michelle Hansen, 32, plead guilty back in February to multiple felony counts of sexual abuse. Charges include seven counts of oral intercourse with a minor, six counts of statutory rape and three counts of providing pornographic material to a child.

The married mother of three, who taught at Centennial High School, is required to register as a sex offender for life.

The victims’ parents voiced their anger at Riverside County Superior Court Judge Becky Dugan, who approved the plea agreement.

If convicted, Hansen would have faced 13 years in prison.

Hansen fought through tears as she made an emotional appeal to the victims’ families, saying she was heartbroken and prayed for them every night.

“I am not a monster; I just made some very wrong choices in life and for that I’m so truly sorry,’ Hansen said.

Police began investigating Hansen after a former student admitted to having sex with the ex-teacher.

The misconduct occurred between 2012 and 2013; Prosecutors said the sexual transgressions took place in various locations including her classroom, a school utility room, her car and at a victim’s home.

Although Hanson didn’t teach any of the victims, all were under the age of 18.

The Court documents detailed sex acts involving Hansen and the victims, which included, engaging in oral sex with a student during a Saturday school session in her classroom. Texting naked images of herself to students and engaging in sexual intercourse with two students on campus.

During the sentencing hearing on Friday, a mother of one of the victims called Hansen a “predator, who stalked my child in the sanctuary of a school”.

The mother voiced her dismay and disappointment over how the Judicial system could have allowed such a ridiculously low offer. Another parent called the three-year sentence a slap in the face for the victims.
