Allison Marchese, the lust-crazed Canadian teacher who stalked students in Connecticut for sex and sent her young victims naked selfies, has been sentenced to three years behind bars.

The 39-year-old, former Daniel Hand High School (Madison, Conn.) teacher, confessed to texting two male students – aged 17 and 14 at the time – suggestive messages, including nearly-naked images that surfaced during the investigation. Last Friday, she received her sentence.

Marchese's apparent obsession with the boys was first revealed during court proceedings last November.

According to the Hartford Courant, an arrest warrant stated Marchese – a mother to two – messaged her younger victim “nonstop” and told him she couldn’t concentrate during class due to his good looks. She claimed she was sleepless as a result.

Things progressed much further with the 17-year-old victim, who told cops Marchese sent him raunchy texts three years ago before having oral sex with him in a secluded classroom, according to court proceedings.

The court heard that the victim agreed to keep the encounter a secret if Marchese paid him $200.

But if the boy told anyone of their inappropriate interactions, Marchese warned the younger victim that her father – who spent time behind bars – had mafia ties and the means to hurt the older victim, according to the report.

Marchese pleaded guilty to multiple counts of unlawful restraint and reckless endangerment, and one count each of harassment and threatening, according to Connecticut’s FOX 61. Marchese also faces five years probation and must register as a sex offender for a decade.

She faced a maximum of 20 years in prison prior to the plea deal.

It’s unclear if Marchese will be deported.
