By Rachel Sharp For Dailymail. A married high school teacher in Michigan has been jailed for four years for having sex with two teenage students and plying one of them with drugs. She had sex with the students on multiple occasions, at least one time in a car while other students watched, and another time in one of the victim's homes. She also plied one of the students with Xanax, with the victim's guardian telling the court the vulnerable teen came home 'high as a kite' after being with Houghtaling, while he was struggling to cope with the death of his mother. Kathryn Houghtaling pictured in court Tuesday , who was 26 at the time of the offenses, sexually assaulted the male students aged 16 and 17 when she was working as a special education and science teacher at Rochester High School. She was sentenced to 51 months to months in prison after she pleaded no contest to six counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct with the boys. Houghtaling, now 27, was also charged with providing a controlled substance to one of the boys.

By Joshua Rhett Miller. March 5, pm Updated March 5, pm. A married, former Michigan high school teacher charged with having sex with two students — and plying one with drugs — has been sentenced to more than four years in prison, according to reports. Kathryn Marie Houghtaling, a year-old special education teacher who worked at Rochester High School, will spend at least 51 months behind bars after pleading no contest to having sex with two students who were 16 and 17 during the December encounters, the Oakland Press reports. The former first-year teacher pleaded no contest in late January, just two days before she was set to go to trial. The teen was ultimately forced to transfer to another school due to avoid being mocked by fellow students about his connection to Houghtaling, his uncle said. None of the sexual encounters occurred on school grounds, but sources told WDIV that Houghtaling had sex with the victims at an apartment, as well as in a car while other students watched. Houghtaling, of Sterling Heights, got emotional in court while apologizing for her actions, according to the station. Houghtaling also referenced her marriage during her statement, saying that being incarcerated will further negatively impact her relationship. Read Next.
