Teacher Who Repeatedly Had Sex With 17-Year-Old Student Will Serve No Jail Time
A former Indiana teacher’s aide and substitute teacher won’t face any jail time after she admitted to bedding a 17-year-old student multiple times.
Kisha Nuckols, 38, pleaded guilty to child seduction as part of a plea deal and was sentenced to home detention followed by two years of sex offender probation, reports said.
According to court documents, the teacher, who is married and has four children, sent explicit photos of herself to the underage student at Mt. Vernon High School and the two later had sex in her home several times.
“Obviously these crimes are serious. What she did was serious. I think it was reflected in the charges filed. I think it was reflected in the sentence she pled to and she got an aggravated sentence,” Hancock county prosecutor Brent Eaton reportedly said in the court room.
According to CBS 4 Indy, Nuckols confessed to having inappropriate relationships with other students to police.
“I’ve embarrassed my family, community and schools,” Nuckols told the station. “I never should have had relationships with students. I brought the schools into a dark spotlight.”
Eaton reportedly said the judge factored in Nuckols’ remorse in his decision.
Nuckols was fired from the school district once the charges were filed, according to reports.
Prosecutors also charged the high school’s principal, Scott Shipley, for waiting two weeks to report the rumors of sexual misconduct to administrators, according to CBS 4 Indy.
Shipley's trial is set for next month.
Nuckols will have to register as a sex offender for ten years.
