But some of the students also said in court that they didn't feel like victims and that they were happy to be at Colleps' home the night of the encounter. One, according to Colleps' lawyer, said he wanted to testify on his teacher's behalf.

"They didn't feel like I victimized them. They didn't feel like victims, you know, last year, they don't feel like victims now. And they didn't want anything to happen to me either," Colleps said.

But something did happen -- after her conviction, Colleps was sentenced to five years in jail. The sentence came despite pleas for leniency from Colleps' husband. Christopher Colleps, 31, was serving as an army specialist in Louisiana when he learned of his wife's deceit.

He called the news of her betrayal the "toughest thing I've ever had to hear," but said he nonetheless stands by his wife. She doesn't, he said, deserve jail time.

"When our children get old enough, she has to look them in the eye and tell them what she did. That is punishment," he said.
