LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 25-year-old former teacher who pleaded guilty in Las Vegas to romancing a teenage student will have a chance to reduce her felony conviction to a misdemeanor if she completes five years of probation.
But Amanda Brennan faces one to four years in prison if she slips and violates probation imposed Tuesday after her Oct. 31 guilty plea to a felony luring a child charge.
She also has to register as a sex offender.
The former Foothill High School teacher told investigators she knew it was wrong to date the boy, who was under 16 years old, but she did it anyway.
Brennan's sentencing came a week after a 22-year-old former substitute teacher was arrested on kidnapping, child sex and lewdness charges in a separate case involving a 15-year-old student.
