VANCOUVER - A former private school teacher who sexually assaulted one of her teenaged students and then gossiped about it to his friends is going to jail for six months and will spend two years on probation.

A provincial court judge in Vancouver heard the teacher, who can't be named, convinced the Grade 11 student that if he were sexually active he would be more confident.

After the two had sex, the teen learned the woman had phoned two of his closest friends and talked about what they had done, his lack of experience and her frustration.

While the woman initially denied having sex with the student, she entered a guilty plea in May to touching for a sexual purpose while in a position of trust.

In a written judgment released Tuesday, Judge Jocelyn Palmer said the cases of sexual exploitation of a young person by someone they trust is abhorrent to society and a strong statement must be made to denounce the conduct.

On top of the six-month jail term, the former teacher also has to give a sample of her DNA, can't have any contact with males between the ages of 14- and 18-years-old, and has been ordered to attend counselling.
