In , Lafave pled guilty to two counts of lewd and lascivious battery of a minor, which resulted in her serving no real jail time, as she was sentenced to three years of house arrest and seven years of formal probation.

One of which she had held steady conversations with via social media throughout the beginning of last year and the other that started at the beginning of summer break.
Haeli was arrested in December of and charged with two counts of conducting an improper relationship between an educator and a student. Haeli was forced into turning in her teaching certification and was told not to contact either victim.
She was able to be released on bond but from what it looks like the Haeli Noelle Wey has yet to pay her debt to society for the scandal that took place over quite some time. This situation's weird because she's not a bad looking gal either. We're sure she could have found someone of age to help satisfy her needs.

But that wasn't before Jones' mother was charged with a misdemeanor charge of tampering with evidence involved with the case. On a weirder note, after the case came to a close and the debacle calmed down, Jones sued a gossip site claiming that she was being "cyber bullied" and stated that she only had two sexual partners in her life, her ex-husband, and her boyfriend, who just so happened to be the 17 year old student that got her in trouble in the first place.

What makes things even worse is that Kathryn was married and she pled guilty to third-degree criminal sexual conduct as part of a plea deal offered to her by prosecutors and the court system.
She originally faced up to five counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, and was sentenced to 6 to 15 years in prison. We're pretty sure she regrets making such a dumb decision.

It seems like Jacoby got off pretty easy though as she was only sentenced to three years of informal probation and hours of community service.
