A former high school teacher was sentenced Tuesday after pleading no contest to having sex with one of her students.
Shebana Rajput of Lenoir County used to teach at Jones Senior High School. Rajput was arrested last year on the charges.
A Lenoir County superior county judge gave her a 45 day active jail sentence and ordered the woman to register as a sex offender for the next 25 years.
Rajput will also be on probation for 36 months and fined $10,270.
Authorities say Rajput had sex with the 17-year-old boy at her home in Kinston between March and May of 2008.
