Two former teachers who pleaded guilty to sexual relations with a 17-year-old boy were sentenced to probation Thursday morning, which the district attorney's office has objected to as excessively light.
Gay Davidson-Shepard, 60, and her husband Daniel Shepard, 63, both of Huntington Beach, pleaded guilty Aug. 30 to multiple felony and misdemeanor counts. Davidson-Shepard was sentenced to three years formal probation with four years in jail stayed and Shepard to three years formal probation with two years in jail stayed, according to a release from the district attorney's office.
The Shepards were also ordered to complete counseling and 60 days of community service. If they violate probation, they will have to serve their allotted time in county jail.
