A former Marlborough teacher has admitted a list of sexual misconduct charges with school students.

The offending was serious enough for a judge to impose the first strike under Three Strike Law when he convicted the 37 year-old, after she pleaded guilty in the Blenheim District Court.

The woman, whose name is suppressed to protect the victims, admitted seven charges of sexual relations with minors and two charges of sending sexual material to minors.

RNZ Nelson-Marlborough reporter Tracy Neal was in court in Blenheim. Lisa Owen asks her about the offending.
