FOLKSTON, Ga. (AP) A former high school teacher has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for having sex with multiple students.

Morris News Service reports 33-year-old DaNita Wilson appeared in court Monday and pleaded guilty to six counts of sexual assault. Wilson, a former south Georgia math teacher, has been ordered to spend 15 years on probation after her sentence. She's also barred from having contact with minors, other than her children.

Wilson was arrested in 2013 and was removed from her job teaching ninth grade students after she posted her $35,000 bond.

Six students Wilson had sex with were 16 or older. Although the age of consent is 16 in Georgia, state law prohibits teachers from having sex with students.
