A former high school teacher has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge related to her sexual relationship with a teenage boy.

Ashley Leigh Lewis Weber, 31, admitted to two counts of having consensual sex with a child who was at least 15 years old.

She was sentenced to 12 months in prison for the offences, but is ultimately expected to serve six months.

The history teacher turned herself in on August 1, two months after police were tipped off about the relationship.

She met the student during the 2015-16 school year and brought him to her parents' home that summer where they had sex.

The presiding judge has ordered her not to have any contact with him going forward.
