Teacher jailed for student affair

`A female teacher who had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student has been sentenced to five years jail in the Victorian County Court.

Cindy Leanne Howell, who has pleaded guilty to one count of maintaining a sexual relationship with a child under 16, sobbed loudly today after receiving the jail sentence with a minimum term of two-and-a-half years.

The court was told the 36-year-old was employed as an integrated aid teacher at a high school on the Mornington Peninsula and assisted the student with a reading difficulty.

The mother of four began a sexual relationship with him over eight months last year after he started dating her daughter.’
