WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — A former New Berlin West High School teacher has been sentenced to two years in prison for having sex with a student.
Twenty-nine-year-old Sara Domres, of Sullivan, pleaded guilty in August to sexual assault of a student by a school staffer.
Waukesha County Circuit Judge Lee Dreyfus Jr. told Domres at sentencing Wednesday her crime went “well beyond a mistake in judgment” or a single moment of weakness. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports he said it was to meet her needs, not those of a child.
Domres told the judge that because she’s now barred from the teaching profession, and because of extensive media coverage, the consequences of her actions had been increased tenfold.
She cried and hung her head as she was led away in handcuffs.
