Stacy Schuler's family walked out of the courtroom without making a comment after their daughter was found guilty of 16 counts of sexual battery and sentenced to four years in prison.
Schuler was convicted of having sex with five different Mason High School students while she was a teacher and athletic trainer there. She has since resigned.
Jimmy Kinderdine, a junior at Mason, said the sentence was fair.
I actually think it was pretty fair because I knew if she was going to be found guilty she faced a potential of 81 years so that fact that she got four is pretty fair," said Kinderdine.
Senior Lauren Robertson had Schuler as a teacher.
"Kind of overwhelming because she was my teacher and it was kind of weird to watch your own teacher being taken to prison," said Robertson. "She needs something different than prison, I feel like she needs help, I don't think she needs to go to prison for four years. "
Assistant Warren County Prosecutor Teresa Hiett, who tried the case, did not talk to the media, but Prosecutor David Fornshell says he hoped Schuler would have received more jail time.
"There is some concern that she will be eligible for release after 6 months," he said.
After the verdict, the defense stood by their client's insanity plea.
"I thought it was a legitimate defense, there is no other explanation for what happened," said defense attorney Charlie Rittgers. "My heart goes out to those young men and my heart goes out to my client."
