US: A central California teen has been sentenced to two years in state custody for the attempted rape of a teacher at a Fresno elementary school.
The Fresno Bee reports that the teen was sentenced Wednesday for his attack on a teacher at McKinley Elementary School last November.
The 17-year-old, who was charged as an adult, pleaded no contest to assault with intent to commit felony rape and sexual battery by restraint.
Prosecutors say the boy attacked the teacher on a Sunday while she was preparing for the week ahead in her classroom.
The teen will serve time in the California Youth Authority before finishing his sentence in state prison.
His lawyer, Manuel Nieto, says the teen will likely be deported to his native Philippines after serving his sentence. (AP)
