A disgraced teacher who confessed to sleeping with a boy “hundreds of times” is facing jail. Mary Beth Haglin, 24, admitted romping with the 17-year-old almost every day for six months and sending him raunchy selfies to turn him on.
She said “He caught me in my weakest moments, and he used that to his advantage.
“I did ignore a lot of that at first because obviously, I knew that it was illegal, not allowed, frowned upon – everything.”
She said she tried to end the affair but claimed the pupil threatened to expose her if she tried to leave him.
She added: “When things got way out of control, and I wanted out, he began saying ‘I will light a match and burn your life down.’”
She could be jailed for a maximum of two years or fined up to $6,250. She must also register for 10 years as a sex offender.
