Jaclyn McLaren, a 36 year old teacher was sentenced to two years in prison and banned from social media. She sent her nude selfies to eight students who were aged 13-18 and gave oral s*x to two of them before having s*x with the third boy.
She sexted for three years before doing it with the boy and said that she started it after one of the boys found nudes on her phone. She claims that she was blackmailed by the students.
It all started when a boy founded the nudes and showed it to his friends, and when she asked him to return, one of the boys asked for more pics in exchange of their silence. She admitted to sending photos of her breasts in 2014 to one of the boys, who was 13 via snapchat.
Another boy claimed that even he got pictures in 2014 when he was 14. She even admitted that she met both of them and had a beer with them before taking them into her car where she ‘fondled and kissed’ them. Then she performed oral sex on both.
A third student then said that she started sending nudes to him when he was 15 and had s*x when he turned 18. A fourth student showed the pics to the police and the fifth who was not a student of McLaren received pics when he was 16.
The sixth boy received a video of her fondling her breasts and he was 16 at that time. He and the seventh complainant, who also received photos of her breasts, were both her students at the time.
The final complainant, a 17-year-old reported that she sent him photos and a video of herself in which she was seen a performing s*x act. She was charged with 42 cases initially, but the Canadian courts don’t allow someone to be convicted twice of the same crime and therefore it was reduced.
She was finally charged with two counts of sexual exploitation, two counts of luring, one of possession of child pornography, one of making explicit material available to people under 18 and one of making it available to people under 16.
She is banned from going to playgrounds or public places where children are likely to be present. The ex-teacher will also be registered as a sex offender and has been ordered to undergo ‘sexual treatment’.
‘We are aware that sentencing took place today for Jaclyn McLaren,’ said Mandy Savery-Whiteway, director of education for the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, where McLaren worked, on Friday.
‘We recognize that this has been a challenging and difficult situation for everyone involved. Employee matters are confidential. No further details will be released at this time.’
