A 37-year-old woman has been jailed for two-and-a-half-years for sexually abusing students while she taught at Marlborough Boys’ College.

She could only be charged with sexual conduct with a person under 16, not anything more serious.

Male Survivors Aotearoa national advocate Ken Clearwater says they’ve been lobbying for changes for more than 20 years.

He says ACC refused to pay male victims in 1998 because the law didn’t count females sexually abusing men.
