MASSILLON, Ohio (AP) -- A former northern Ohio high school cafeteria worker who sent nude cellphone pictures of herself to male students is getting out of prison after serving six months.

The Independent newspaper in Massillon (http://bit.ly/WDd1eG ) reports that a judge agreed Wednesday to release 35-year-old Stacey St. Jean-Barton after she served part of her 22-month prison sentence.

The judge also ordered that the former Washington High School cafeteria worker has to stay away electronic devices and the Internet for two years and have no contact with students.

Prosecutors did not object to St. Jean-Barton's early release.

Prosecutors said St. Jean-Barton -- who also was a bus driver and a coach in the school district -- sent the photos from her cellphone to two male students between September 2011 and February 2012.
