Former teacher sentenced for sex with student

By Mike Conroy. CREATED Sep 4, 2013

FOND DU LAC - Former Mayville high school teacher Shannon Cardinal will spend two years in prison after her conviction of sexual assault on a student.

Cardinal was in Fond du Lac County court Wednesday morning for a sentencing hearing. The 44-year-old will also serve one year on extended supervision.

Court documents show Cardinal was teaching at Mayville when she began having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student in 2011.

In May of this year, she entered a plea of guilty to one count of Sexual Assault of a Student by Staff in a plea agreement with prosecutors. Eleven other charges were dropped.
