Former Catholic school teacher Jennifer Mason will spend the next two years in a federal penitentiary after pleading guilty to sexually exploiting a former student.
The court was told they did not consummate the relationship until the boy was 16.
At that point they began having sex in Mason's car and would spend time in hotels where they would watch Disney movies.
The boy would not testify. He says he loves Mason and would go to jail for her.
While the teenager maintains he was not victimized, judge Sean Dunnigan says he is a victim and may be a ticking time bomb.
“This is not a victimless crime,” said Dunnigan said.
The judge said there were “many, many victims,” including the teen “even though he may not believe it.”
When handing down the two-year prison sentence, the judge says the 31-year-old has lost everything but her behavior must be denounced and deterred.
Mason has friends in Edmonton and the judge recommended she serve her term there. She must also submit a DNA sample and register as a sexual offender.
Mason was charged earlier this year after a member of the public spotted suspicious activity in a vehicle parked in northwest Calgary.
It was alleged she and a teenage male student, who previously attended her school, were in a sexual relationship between August 2012 and November 2013.
Mason was suspended from teaching and charged with sexual assault, invitation to sexual touching, sexual exploitation by a person in a position of trust and sexual interference.
In exchange for pleading guilty to sexual exploitation, the other charges against her were dropped by prosecutors.
