Nancy Boggs is handcuffed and taken to jail after being sentenced Tuesday to 10 years for battery against three special education students at Holz Elementary.

Saying she wished she could impose a more severe punishment, a Kanawha County judge on Tuesday sentenced a former Holz Elementary School teacher to 10 years in jail for battering three special education students in her classroom.

Nancy Boggs, 67, will serve a year in the South Central Regional Jail, the maximum sentence allowable, for each of the 10 misdemeanor counts of battery she previously pleaded guilty to, Kanawha County Circuit Judge Maryclaire Akers ruled.
