CAMDENTON, Mo. -- A former teacher in the Macks Creek, Missouri school was sentenced to 5 years in prison Tuesday on charges of statutory rape involving a former student.

Jenner Shaffer, 41,  was arrested in 2012 and charged with having sex with the student, who told investigators she  gave birth to a baby as a result of the relationship.  The baby was a year old when the case came to light in 2012.

The girl told investigators Shaffer was her English teacher at the time, and that she went to his home in Camden County several times in 2010 when she was 15 and Shaffer was 38.

Shaffer left the Macks Creek school district and had moved to Wheatland, Missouri, where he was arrested in August of 2012.
