GATINEAU A former physical education teacher from Quebec has been sentenced to 20 months in jail for carrying on a two-year sexual relationship with a high school student.
Despite her pleas in Gatineau court Friday to serve her sentence in the community, Tania Pontbriand received an 18-month sentence for two counts of sexual exploitation and a 20-month sentence for one count of sexual assault. She will serve the sentences concurrently.
She was also sentenced to two years probation following her jail term.
Pontbriand was convicted of the three offences in January for having a sexual relationship with her student at a high school in Rosemere, Que., north of Montreal.
The two-year relationship started in 2002, when Pontbriand was 32 and the victim was 15. The victim went to police in 2007 and Pontbriand was charged the following year.

Gentlemen of the jury?
When I was 15 that would have looked pretty good to me.Even now that I’m well past 15 it doesn’t look bad.
Your Honor, Not Guilty with an explanation.
Whoops! My apologies.
Was she messing with a boy or girl?
Michael Myers playing the “It’s a man, baby” character.
Phy ed teacher???????? it was a girl.......NO doubt!
Male. From the article.
not guilty .....and the kid is a jackass...
She’s guilty as are all adults who have sex with minors. Appearance has nothing to do with it.
Many (most?) teachers are liberal. Most liberals are immoral. When a person is sexually immoral in their private life, that attitude may very well extend to their professional life given the opportunity.
Teachers are in an authority position over students. In my opinion, it doesn’t even matter if a student is legal age. People, like President Clinton, who use positions of authority to have sex with subordinates are at least very unprofessional.
Minors, by definition, are incapable of giving informed consent to sex with an adult—the perceived hotness of said adult being completely irrelevant.
nope, no indication there....my verdict remains the same...!!!!
No contest, with qualifications.
The relationship, if that’s what it’s called, took place a dozen years ago, right?
Prolly back then she would have looked pretty good to anyone.
The sexual exploitation of a male adolescent by a female teacher must be punished just the same as a male posing the same actions towards a female adolescent
Hence my statement.
......assuming that Tania is a lot more attractive from the neck down than the neck up, if she had laid me 200 times at 15-16 she would have been receiving birthday presents and Christmas presents for the last 51 years...............!
Lighten up, dude (or dudette)
It's an ongoing joke around here to judge the guilt or innocence of females based on their appearance. It's meant to be lighthearted, not a sign of moral deficiency.
