TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A former Ohio school superintendent and school board member has pleaded guilty to a sexual conduct charge in Michigan involving a former student from decades ago.

Patrick Hickey pleaded guilty Wednesday in Michigan’s Lenawee (lehn-uh-WAY’) County and faces up to two years in prison.

His plea deal required him to acknowledge in court to groping a 15-year-old girl and to register as a sex offender.

Hickey resigned in March from the Washington Local Schools board in Toledo after being charged.

A police report from 2016 says a woman told investigators she had sex with Hickey during the late 1980s when she was 14 and he was a teacher in Addison, Michigan.

Authorities say she didn’t want to pursue charges, but they reopened the investigation after she changed her mind.
