LAKE OSWEGO, OR (KPTV) -

A West Linn High School teacher convicted of inappropriately touching students was sentenced Wednesday.

Jonathan Peachey, 34, was sentenced to two months in jail and three years of probation for charges of sex abuse. He pleaded guilty to the charges earlier this month.

Investigators said they received reports in September 2015 that Peachey had inappropriately touched male students at a house in Lake Oswego.

In court Wednesday, Peachey did not look at any of the victims’ families or anyone else, keeping his head turned to talk to his lawyer throughout the entire proceeding.

The father of one of the victims said the teacher abused the “position of trust” he had with students.

"You are a pedophile, the last nine months have been the most difficult ever for our family," the father said. "You are going to have time to reflect on your sick actions."

The mother of another victim said her family has “forever been impacted” and that her son was “scarred by Mr. Peachey's actions."

Peachey will have to register as a sex offender and undergo sex offender treatment.

Peachey had been arrested on DUII charges in 2010 in an incident where he crashed into a student’s car.
