The former Lexington, Nebraska school teacher who fled to Mexico last year with a 12 year old student was sentenced to six years in prison. James Martin Davis is her attorney.”I think it’s a fair sentence given the fact that there was federal implications. It’s certainly better than the 10 year minimum she was set to receive. Not only is Kelsey going to have to do the six years, but she’s gonna be on supervised release for five years there after.”
Kelsey Peterson was the boy’s sixth-grade math teacher and started having sex with him in november 2006. She will be credited for the year she has already served and will be held at a women’s prison in Pekin, Illinois.
