Texas Teacher Guilty in Sex Case - Update

(Paris, Texas) Former Paris ISD teacher's aide Beth Merritt pleaded guilty last Friday to improper relations between an educator and a student.

As a result,
41 year old Beth Merritt received a four year deferred sentence, and was ordered to pay a $500 fine.[…]

If Merritt completes probation successfully, the conviction won't stick on her record. If she violates probation, she'll serve the remainder of her sentence in prison.
Kind of lenient, I'd say.
