AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — A former Amarillo elementary school teacher has received six months' jail time after pleading guilty to engaging in illegal sexual contact with a minor.

The Amarillo Globe-News reports (http://bit.ly/11nPt4j ) that Julie Ann Moore pleaded guilty Thursday to sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child. Each charge was in a separate county.

Local district attorney Randall Sims tells the newspaper that Moore was ordered to serve 180 days in jail, give up her teacher's license and register as a sex offender. She will also receive 10 years of deferred probation.

A Dec. 2 complaint filed by the Texas Rangers accuses Moore of having sex with a 15-year-old high school student.

She turned herself in four days later and resigned from her teaching job shortly afterward.
