VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A former Vancouver high school drama teacher has been sentenced to five years in prison for having sex with a 15-year-old student.

The Columbian reports (https://goo.gl/Xl5PZr ) that 36-year-old Stephanie McCrea previously pleaded guilty to four counts of third-degree rape of a child and one count of tampering with a witness.

Prosecutors say McCrea and the boy had sex in her home and her office beginning in December.

The witness tampering charge came from communication she had with the victim through a fake Facebook page. Prosecutors say she asked the boy to keep their relationship quiet and practiced what to say if he spoke to law enforcement.

McCrea said in court Wednesday she takes responsibility for her actions and that she feels the pain of knowing she’s hurt many people with her choices.
