Former Jerome elementary teacher was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Monday following an April 2019 stabbing.

In December, Tawna Day Huttanus pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated battery and one count of domestic violence — traumatic injury in the presence of a child, according to court documents obtained by KMVT.

Each count comes with its own 10 year sentence, 5 years of which is fixed and 5 years of which is indeterminate, to run concurrently. The court will retain jurisdiction for 365 days. Huttanus will also be evaluated and undergo treatment through the Department of Corrections Rider program, according to court documents.

In April 2019, KMVT reported on an
