New York Teacher Kisses Boy, 13, on Mouth
pleaded guilty last Thursday to kissing a 13-year-old boy on the mouth.
Sleap admitted to endangering the welfare of a child.
Staff members alerted administrators about her behavior in October, and the art teacher was placed on leave in December. The incident was reportedly caught on video.[…]Sleap faces a possible one year in prison when sentenced in July.
As part of her guilty plea, the 49-year-old will have to surrender her teaching license and will not be able to re-apply. She had been a teacher in the Williamsville School District since 1988.
The Assistant District Attorney said in court, had this gone to a jury trial, she believed there would have been enough evidence to convict Sleap of second- or third-degree sexual abuse.
