STROUDSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A former Pennsylvania public school music teacher must spend three to six years in state prison for his sexual relationship with a student.

The Pocono Record (https://bit.ly/1Lod2AP ) says the female student testified at Monday’s sentencing hearing in Monroe County for 40-year-old Brandon Flatley.

Flatley worked in the Stroudsburg School District. He met the girl when she was 10 and as she matured into her teens, prosecutors say he manipulated the girl into having a sexual relationship and alienating her from her family.

Prosecutors say Flatley sent the girl about 140 text messages daily from April 2013 until December 2014 and would spend more than 100 minutes at a time on the phone with her. They had sex at school and at her home when her parents were away.

Flatley apologized in court.
