Teacher to serve prison time for encounter with student

A science teacher has been sentenced to serve two years in prison for taking indecent liberties with a student at the Virginia high school where she worked.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports a judge formally accepted a plea agreement Friday between Hanover County prosecutors and 35-year-old Miranda Nicole Pauley.

She had pleaded guilty to four indecent liberties counts in October and also pleaded guilty to using a communications system to solicit a minor.

A Hanover prosecutor said previously the activity happened at Patrick Henry High School, where a minor told a Hanover sheriff’s investigator that he had a relationship with Pauley.

The prosecutor said that Pauley also sent photos of herself to the minor.

Pauley worked as a Hanover teacher for more than a decade.
