NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A former high school teacher in New Hampshire accused of sending sexually explicit emails and videos to a 16-year-old female student has pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child and has received a suspended sentence, avoiding jail time.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2sYqENr) Tuesday that under a plea agreement, Robert Todd Wiley was sentenced to two 12-month jail terms, all suspended.

The teen told the court that after the exchange of emails, her life was devastated.

In March, Wiley’s lawyer argued that the material isn’t obscene and is protected speech under the state and U.S. constitutions.

The 63-year-old Wiley, who taught in the Merrimack school district, was arrested last year.
