Comments Off on Former Chico school worker, Jessica Hays, 41, who had sex, baby with underage student, sentenced

CHICO, Calif. – A former school employee in Chico who had pled guilty to having sex with a student and having the student’s baby was sentenced on Wednesday.

Butte County investigators said Jessica Hays, 41, was a former yard duty at Fair View High School in Chico where the student, then 16, now 17, was attending. Following a tip to police about the relationship, Hays was arrested and charged with unlawful sex with a minor, furnishing controlled substance and marijuana to a minor.

According to Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey, Hays was ordered to serve 120 days in custody. She was also placed on three year’s probation and is required to register as a sex offender.

Hays faced a maximum state prison term of five years and eight months.

Deputy District Attorney Matt Taylor argued to not give Hays probation because she has housed the student for a period of time and acted as a mother figure for him. The prosecutor added Hays gave the teenage meth and other drugs, and the pair had sex many times while under the influence. He also said Hays violated a position of trust, manipulated the student and questioned whether she was remorseful.

The judge said she was placed on probation for having no prior record, appearing to be willing to comply with the terms of probation and appearing remorseful. The DA argued that if this was a man, he would have gone to prison.
