A married former high school teacher in Wisconsin wailed in court after she was sentenced to two years behind bars for having sex with one of her students.

Sara Domres sobbed and dropped her head as she was escorted away in handcuffs after her sentencing hearing on Wednesday sentencing, The Journal Sentential reported.

The 29-year-old former teacher pleaded guilty back in August to sexual assault after allegations surfaced that she repeatedly slept with one of her male students, including one time at a motel, the same night her husband had his bachelor party.

As part of her punishment, Domres will serve three years of probation after her release and will be ordered to register as a sex offender.

The woman, who has no prior criminal history, is also prohibited from having contact with the teen victim, his family or with a school.

Waukesha County Circuit Judge Lee Dreyfus told Domres at her hearing that her behavior “went well beyond a mistake in judgment.”

Domres informed the judge that because she is now banned from the teaching profession, and because of the extensive media attention she has received, the consequences of her behavior had been magnified tenfold.

The victim’s family was not present in court, and they did not give any impact statement.

Domres was criminally charged in April but initially pleaded not guilty, maintaining she had only hugged the male student when they saw each other outside of school.

In August, her tone changed, and she pleaded guilty to sexual assault.

Court documents allege that the sexual relationship began with her 16-year-old student in the 2014-2015 academic year.

The student, whose identity is unknown, told authorities that the two had sex between 10-15 times.

A criminal complaint revealed that the two had sex at a Park and Ride parking lot in July 2015, and also at the Motel 6 off on the same night as Domres’ husband’s bachelor party.

Authorities confirmed that the teen’s phone was connected to WiFi at the motel and that Domres paid for the room.

The boy even informed police that she had sent him pictures of herself while she was on her honeymoon.

The criminal complaint stated that the boy was in Domres’ English class and they started to text frequently.

One time, the woman’s husband caught the two in the parking lot of the New Berlin Ale House which led to a verbal altercation.

However, it was one of the victim’s worried friends who reported the relationship to police, and an investigation was launched this past January.

Domres was put on administrative leave after school administrators learned of the relationship. She was later terminated from her position.

It is alleged that the relationship was going on since May 2015 and that the boy was a virgin before the relationship with his teacher began.

Over the course of their probe, law enforcement officials discovered over 1,000 text messages between Domres and the student, who she referred to as “baby boo.”

“Baby Boo, I love you now & forever! Please be mine forever & ever. Always, your baby girl. P.S. Good luck on your quiz :),” one of the texts stated.

Another text said: “Hopefully, you’ve been thinking of me Baby Boo. I should go because he will be home soon. I love you. Be good, think of me and no one else! Haha.”

The two traded letters, which the student kept.

One letter that was exchanged in class said: “We will have to plan something soon. I want a night again. Xoxo.”

“Yes! Soon. I want another night with you too baby boo!”

“I want to do you ๐Ÿ™‚ NOW!!”

The messages also revealed that the woman was scared of the consequences if their inappropriate relationship would be exposed.

After law enforcement officials had confiscated her cell phone, they found that she searched on Google: “what’s the prison sentence for a teacher sleeping with a student.”

And in one message to the student, she asked him to stay quiet even if they did break up.

“I love you, too, baby and will forever. I’m just saying that if you ever don’t, please still love me enough as a person to know how much that’d hurt me,” she stated.

It is not clear whether the two maintained their relationship even after Domres got married to her husband in 2015.

Interestingly, her husband remained by her side after she was arrested and he even appeared in court when she declared her innocence back in April.

But, it is not clear if they are still together after her she pleaded guilty and was sentenced to time in prison.
