PELL CITY, Ala. (AP) - A former fifth grade teacher in Pell City has pleaded guilty to having sex with students.

Ashli Gilley pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of being a school employee engaging in sexual relations with someone under the age of 19.

Al.com (https://bit.ly/1TJDdpP ) reports that each charge involved a different student, and the sexual contact happened over a period of time.

A judge sentenced Gilley to two 10-year sentences under a plea deal but also scheduled a hearing for June 2 where she could get probation. St. Clair County District Attorney Richard Minor says his office will oppose probation.
