    A former teacher in Georgia who pleaded guilty to having sex
    with an underage male student has been sentenced to spend at
    least three months behind bars.

    Raquel Eleana Spencer, who previously taught English at
    Northwest Whitfield High School in Tunnel Hill, was sentenced
    Friday to spend between 90 and 120 days at a minimum-security
    detention center that also provides life skills classes and
    substance abuse counseling, the Dalton Daily Citizen reports.

    Spencer, 29, must also serve the rest of a 10-year sentence on
    probation, perform 300 hours of community service and pay a
    $1,000 fine after pleading guilty to sexual assault by a person
    with supervisory and disciplinary authority.

    Spencer, who resigned after being arrested at the school last
    April, was also found in possession of heroin after staffers
    suspected that she was under the influence while at school.
    Those charges were dropped, however, as part of a plea
    agreement, according to the newspaper.

    A grand jury indicted Spencer last year after sheriff’s
    officials in Whitfield County accused her of having sex with a
    student at the school between October 2017 and April 2018.
    Investigators uncovered the illicit encounters during a search
    of Spencer’s phone after heroin was found in her possession, the
    Daily Citizen reports.

    At the time, three administrators reported Spencer acting oddly
    during school hours, rapidly changing subjects during
    conversations and having difficulty staying on one topic. That
    prompted an assistant principal to ask a school resource officer
    whether Spencer had been using drugs, the Chattanooga Times Free
    Press reports.

    The district’s superintendent, Judy Gilreath, declined to
    indicate whether she thought Spencer’s sentence was appropriate.

    “But I do hope that she gets the treatment and help she needs,”
    Gilreath told the Daily Citizen.

    Spencer, who also coached cheerleading and girls’ track and
    field at the school, had worked in the district since January
    2013 prior to her resignation.
