A former Oklahoma teacher teacher has been sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to having sex with multiple students over a three-year period, KFSM reports.
On Tuesday, Janet Kaye Barnes, 44, a former teacher at Pocola High School in Pocola, pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and one count of sexual battery.
She will serve her sentence at Oklahoma’s Mabel Bassett Correctional Center and is required to register as a sex offender, local station 5NewsOnline.com reports.
Her attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Barnes is married to Clayton Donovan, The Daily Mail reported.
Prior to working for Pocola High School, she worked at Smithville Public Schools.
Her role at Smithville is unclear but students described her as a teacher and a coach, KFSM reported.
