Ex-Georgia teacher gets at least 90 days in sex relationship
DALTON, Ga. (AP) — A former Georgia teacher has been sentenced to jail after prosecutors said she had a sexual relationship with an underage student.
News outlets reported Raquel Eleana Spencer must serve at least 90 days at a minimum security prison that provides counseling and life skills classes.
Spencer must also pay a $1,000 fine and perform 300 hours of community service.
She must also serve the rest of a 10-year sentence on probation.
Spencer pleaded guilty to sexual assault by a person with supervisory of disciplinary authority. Whitfield County sheriff’s deputies say the relationship with the student lasted more than a year.
Spencer was an English teacher at Northwest Whitfield High School in Tunnel Hill. She also was an assistant cheerleading and girl’s track and field coach.
She was arrested last April.
