UPDATE: Fmr Teacher Sentenced to 4 Years in Prison; Schuler Found Guilty of All Counts After Being Accused of Having Sex With Students

UPDATE, 4:08p ET: A former Ohio high school teacher has been sentenced to four years in prison for having sex with teenage boys at her home.

Judge Robert Peeler has ruled that Stacy Schuler is guilty on all counts after being accused of having sex with students, stating that Schuler is not insane. The judge said that the state has proven sexual battery on underage persons.

The verdict was issued shortly after closing arguments were presented in the trial of the former southwest Ohio high school teacher.

Earlier this week, five former Mason High School students testified that they had sexual encounters with Schuler at her Springboro home.

Schuler, 33-years-old, had been a teacher and athletic trainer at the school north of Cincinnati since 2000. She resigned in February after being charged with sexual battery.

She had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. Her lawyers argued that she had medical and psychological issues and doesn't remember the alleged incidents, and that students took advantage of her.
