(Milwaukee, Wisconsin) Former teacher at Messmer High School Megan Garland, 29, pleaded no contest yesterday to illegal sexual contact with two students.
Garland pleaded to reduced charges of child enticement and sexual assault by school staff.
Garland was arrested after she was caught performing a sex act on a 14-year-old male student May 23 in the parking lot of Destiny Church and School in Milwaukee.Garland faces sentencing in January 2014.
Prosecutors later added a second charge, that she groped a 15-year-old male Messmer student while giving him a ride in her car earlier that month.
In court Friday, her attorney, Alex Flynn, told the judge that she was entering a no-contest plea rather than guilty pleas because she could be facing a personal injury lawsuit over the incidents.
