JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - A former Joplin High School teacher faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to having sex with a student.

Thirty-three-year-old Jessica Low, a former communication arts teacher, pleaded guilty Monday to statutory rape and having sexual contact with a student. Under a plea deal, Low’s prison time would be no more than five years in prison. Sentencing was set for July 20.

The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/1IIW2791 ) Low sent between 25 and 40 nude images of herself to one student and had sexual contact with a second boy.

Low had resigned her teaching post in March 2014 and was completing the school year when she was arrested in May 2014.
