Jennifer Mason, 30, is already serving a two-year sentence for the affair with the boy between August 2012 and November 2013.

But before she pleaded guilty in July, she met the boy in a hotel room while out on bail.

She will also have probation for three years.
The court heard she met the boy in May at the Econo Lodge on Macleod Trail.
