COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A former Council Bluffs high school math teacher has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for having sexual contact with a student.

KETV reports (http://bit.ly/1MSBQTg ) a judge on Monday sentenced 30-year-old Jeffrey Daugherty to the prison term and ordered that he be placed on a lifetime sex offender registry. Before resigning in February, he taught at Thomas Jefferson High School.

In September, Daugherty pleaded guilty to numerous charges involving sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl, including third-degree sexual abuse, sexual exploitation by a school employee and sexual exploitation of a minor.

As the judge read his decision, Daugherty cried with his head buried in his hands.

Daugherty will be eligible to seek parole in about 7½ years.
