A married middle-school English teacher and cheerleading coach will serve six years in prison after she pleaded guilty to having sex multiple times with a 15-year-old student while she was pregnant.
Katherine Ruth Harper, 28, was arrested in April last year and charged with having an improper relationship with a student in Trophy Club, Texas, a wealthy suburb northwest of Dallas.
She pleaded guilty to one court of sexual assault and one count of having an improper relationship with a student, the Denton County District Attorney’s Office said.
After her prison sentence, Harper will be placed on 10 years’ probation. She will also be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
