WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - A former religion teacher at a Catholic high school in suburban New York has pleaded guilty to having sexual encounters with a 14-year-old male student.

Amanda Iles entered the plea Tuesday after reaching an agreement with prosecutors.

According to the Journal News (https://lohud.us/1hSC6jc ), she must spend six months in the Westchester County jail and register as a sex offender. She also faces nearly 10 years of probation.

She was a teacher at Archbishop Stepinac High School.

Iles surrendered to police in November. Prosecutors say the incidents happened at her Eastchester home between June and July.

Sentencing was set for May 27.

Iles and her attorney did not return requests for comment.

The White Plains school has operated independently from the Archdiocese of New York since 2010.
