CALGARY—A Calgary teacher will spend two years in federal prison for sexually exploiting one of her students.

Jennifer Mason, 28, was charged with four offences, including sexual assault and invitation to sexual touching, in an incident involving a male student from the school where she was a teacher.

Police say that the student was 15 years old when the contact first began so he could not consent to a sexual relationship.

The boy did not testify, stating he is not a victim and saying he would go to jail for Mason and wants to marry her.

Through her lawyer, Mason accepted full responsibility for her actions and apologized to the boy, the families and her ex-husband.

Her teaching credentials will be permanently revoked in Canada.
