The Blenheim teacher who admitted sexually abusing two schoolboys has been jailed - but still cannot be named as she continues the fight to keep her identity a secret. She is understood to be the first female teacher in New Zealand convicted and sentenced for sexual offending against students. And it was confirmed in court that the woman did not dispute having sexual relationships with other older boys. The year-old appeared in the Blenheim District Court this afternoon and was sentenced to two years and six months in jail for her offending. She had earlier pleaded guilty to a raft of charges relating to two teenage boys who she sexually abused, often in cars parked in public places, and in school lunch breaks. In court her lawyer sought a term of home detention but Tasman Crown Solicitor Mark O'Donoghue said that would be inadequate given the gravity of the offending. He said if she were a man and the victims were schoolgirls community sentence would not have even been tabled. He said no one should have been more attuned to the needs off young men growing up than a trained teacher. The woman - a mother married to a police employee - was granted interim name suppression at an earlier court appearance. Her lawyer Jonathan Eaton QC argued she should not be named on the basis of her mental health and the impact publication would have on her children.
