HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- (WTVR) -- Ashley Weber, who most recently taught history at Freeman High School, pleaded guilty to having consensual sexual contact with a minor, according to the Henrico Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.
In exchange for the guilty plea on Friday, the 31-year-old woman received a 12-month jail sentence for one count of contributing to delinquency of a minor.
A second 12-month jail sentence, for the second count of contributing to delinquency of a minor, was suspended for five years.
Weber was initially charged with using a communication device to propose sex to a minor, but she was not convicted on that charge.
Police were called to the school in June to investigate a situation that was deemed “suspicious,” according to testimony. Weber was later arrested in August after Henrico Police took a report about a sexual relationship between Weber and the 16-year-old student.
