CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A former Cedar Rapids substitute teacher found guilty in December of having sex with a student has been sentenced to 90 days in jail.

Television station KCRG reports (https://bit.ly/2kSnFBy ) that 24-year-old Mary Beth Haglin was sentenced Friday in Linn County Court. She will also spend 10 years on the state’s sex offender registry.

Prosecutors say Haglin had sex with a 17-year-old student while she worked at Cedar Rapids Washington High School.

Haglin agreed to let the judge rule only on the minutes of testimony, shielding her from a tougher felony charge prosecutors brought against her after she did several national TV interviews.

Prosecutors had said that in those interviews, Haglin “admitted engaging in a pattern or practice of sexual conduct with a student while employed as a teacher.”
