COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A judge sentenced a former central Ohio teacher to 4 years in prison for having sex with a 13-year-old student.

The judge in Franklin County on Thursday also told Brooke Wright, 40, she could be released after 12 months for good behavior and will have to register as a Tier III sex offender.

Under terms of a plea agreement, Wright pleaded guilty to sexual battery and prosecutors dropped charges of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Wright was working at Ventures Academy in Delaware when prosecutors alleged she had sex with the boy she was tutoring between May and September 2019. She was suspended and placed on leave from her job after the allegation surfaced.
