Teacher Strikes Plea Deal in Sex Abuse Case Involving Student

A WOMAN ACCUSED OF HAVING SEX WITH A FEMALE STUDENT -- WHILE TEACHING AND COACHING HER, AT RIVERTON HIGH SCHOOL -- HAS PLEADED GUILTY TO REDUCED CHARGES.

COURTNEY JARRELL, 23, PLEADED GUILTY TO THREE COUNTS OF MISDEMEANOR SEXUAL BATTERY.

PROSECUTORS REDUCED HER FELONY CHARGES, AFTER SHE AGREED TO FORFEIT HER TEACHING LICENSE.

SHE WILL BE SENTENCED IN APRIL, WHEN PROSECUTORS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO SEEK JAIL TIME.

HER ATTORNEY SAYS THE RELATIONSHIP -- WITH THE 17-YEAR-OLD STUDENT -- WAS CONSENSUAL.
