A former Aplington-Parkersburg teacher will serve prison time for having sexual contact with students.
Monday morning, a Butler County judge sentenced 24-year-old Ashley Anderson of Ackley to up to five years in prison. The judge also ordered her to pay a $750 fine.
In October of last year, prosecutors charged Anderson with four counts of sexual exploitation by a school employee. Court records show Anderson admitted to engaging in sexual misconduct with four students.
The alleged victims were between the ages of 16 and 18.
Anderson took a plea deal, admitting guilt to three of the charges.
