MANASSAS A city teacher charged with having sex with a 17-year-old student pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge in court Thursday and was sentenced to two years of probation.
Prince William prosecutors lessened the charge against Nicole Michele Brady, 29, from indecent liberties, a felony, to contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor.
Brady pleaded guilty to the lesser charge in Prince William Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.
Judge James B. Robeson imposed a sentence recommended by Assistant Commonwealths Attorney Jeanice B. Wiethop: 12 months of suspended jail time and two years probation. Brady also was ordered to undergo a sex offender evaluation and pay $100 in court costs.
She was to report to the local offenders program Thursday, the judge said.
Brady, a German teacher at Osbourn High School and Metz Middle School in Manassas since fall 1997, is suspended without pay, Manassas Superintendent Chip Zullinger said Thursday.
Any decision on her employment will be made by the Manassas School Board at a future meeting unless Brady resigns, he said.
Brady was arrested Nov. 21, and the School Board put her on paid suspension until December, when the board also suspended her salary.
Her arrest came after Prince William County police received a report from the 17-year-olds father that his son said he had sex with his teacher.
The boy then told police he and Brady had consensual sex 10 to 20 times from October to mid-November in her town house on Three Otters Place in eastern Prince William County.
They went to the Outer Banks in North Carolina together, where they had sex at a motel, according to court records.
Before the sexual contact, Brady gave the boy $200 to help him buy a guitar, and they chatted online about music, he told police.
The student initiated the sexual contact, Bradys attorney William C. Boyce Jr. said after Thursdays hearing.
