CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Laramie County School District No. 1 reached a settlement with a student who was sexually abused by his elementary school teacher for nearly two years.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports the details of the settlement, which was reached late last month, aren’t included in court filings. A message left for the district’s attorney was not returned, and the student’s attorneys say they would not comment.

The student’s lawsuit - filed by his guardian in April 2016 - alleged the district could have done more to prevent the teacher, 52-year-old Anna Andersen, from sexually abusing the boy, who was 12 at the time.

Andersen pleaded no contest to two counts of sexual abuse of a minor in spring 2015 and was sentenced to eight to 12 years at the Wyoming Women’s Center.
