A female teacher who admitted to having sexual relationship with two students has been sentenced to probabtion.

Karlie Brooke Taylor, 22, a substitute teacher for Campbell County High School, in Jacksboro, Tennessee, was indicted by a grand jury on several counts of statutory rape and statutory rape by an authority figure.

The Campbell County Sheriff’s Office said Taylor engaged in sexual acts with the boys, aged between 15 and 17, sometime between February-March of 2016.

Taylor pleaded guilty to four counts of mitigated statutory rape and was sentenced to serve four years of supervised probation.

She must also pay court costs of $2,500 and have no contact with the students.

As a condition for her probabtion, she is also barred from volunteering or serving "in any capacity with any organisation, association, institution, club, team or any other group that involves persons under the age of 18 years”.

At a previous court hearing, Campbell County director of schools Larry Nidiffer said Taylor was a substitute teacher during the 2015-2016 school year.

Nidiffer said he heard Taylor may have been involved with students after school and off campus.

He took her off the substitute teacher list and contacted police
