Pa. teacher pleads guilty in student sexting case
ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - October 19, 2012 (WPVI) -- A Pennsylvania high school math teacher has admitted to sending sexually explicit text messages to one of his students.
Twenty-five-year-old Timothy Moll of Emmaus pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of corruption of minors, a misdemeanor that carries up to five years in prison. Under the plea deal, felony charges of corruption of minors and unlawful contact with a minor were dropped.
Moll was employed by the Allentown School District as a teacher at Dieruff High School when police said he sent text messages asking a 16-year-old female student for nude photos.
Investigators said Moll also offered extra credit points in return for the pictures.
Moll is no longer with the school district but officials wouldn't say whether he was fired or resigned.
He will be sentenced in December.
