THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - A former Thibodaux High School teacher has been sentenced to a year of probation for having sex with a then 17-year-old student.

The Daily Comet reports (https://bit.ly/1Je7owQ) 25-year-old Celeste Bergeron, of Thibodaux, pleaded guilty this week to two counts of prohibited sexual contact between an educator and student.

State District Judge Christopher Boudreaux handed down a suspended sentence of five months in prison and ordered Bergeron to pay a $500 fine and complete 32 hours of community service.

Bergeron had faced up to six months in prison and a $1,000 fine on each count.

Since she pleaded guilty to misdemeanors, she will not be required to register as a sex offender.

Bergeron was arrested Jan. 7 for having consensual sex with the student at least twice.
