TREYNOR, Iowa (AP) - A former teacher has agreed to give up his teaching and coaching licenses as part of a plea deal in his sexual exploitation case involving students.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/1hosT6l ) that Michael Travis pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of assault. He also agreed to surrender the licenses to the Iowa Education Department. He won’t have to register as a sex offender or serve any time in jail.

The newspaper reported that Travis maintained his innocence despite his negotiated plea of guilty. He was arrested in May 2014 on two counts of sexual exploitation by a school employee.

Travis had been an assistant softball coach at Treynor High School and taught elementary school.


This story has been corrected to show that the plea was entered on Tuesday, not Wednesday.
