After pleading guilty to second-degree rape and soliciting sexual conduct by use of technology, Hunter Day received two 10-year prison sentences which will be served concurrently.

Day appeared before Canadian County District Judge Paul Hesse today. He ordered to her serve three of the 10 years in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections and serve her remaining sentence under ODOC supervision. She was ordered to pay for two victim restitution assessments to determine the costs she will be ordered to pay on behalf of the victim. She will be forced to register as a sex offender.

Day was charged with second-degree rape and soliciting sexual conduct via technology in 2017 after she was arrested for having sex with a then 16-year-old student in her Yukon high school chemistry class. Day was 22 at the time and was an emergency certified teacher.

Day entered a blind plea last month when she threw herself on the mercy of the judge to determine her sentence.
