Ashley Parkins Pruitt, a 30-year-old mother of one and former English teacher, pleaded guilty to two counts of sex act or deviant sexual intercourse with a student and two counts of porn distribution to a minor in Blount County, Alabama.
Pruitt, a married teacher and mother of one, pleaded guilty to inappropriate sexual behavior with three of her male high school students.
If she takes a plea agreement, she will be sentenced to 15 years in prison, according to AI.com. Pruitt will have to register as a sex offender and she will also face a $1,000 fine on each count and a $100 Crime Victim Compensation Fee.
Pruitt was originally arrested in November of 2014 after she turned herself in. She admitted to sexual encounters with three different students at Appalachian High School. All three students were in her class at some point.
She had oral sex with one male, who was under age 19, in a car. She told another student age 18 she wanted to take his virginity and sent him sexual messages and nude photos of herself to him on Snapchat. She also “made out” with another student under the age of 19 and sent him nude photos on Snapchat.
Blount County District Attorney Pamela Casey told Al.com: “I am pleased we were able to resolve this case before trial. These three boys have already been subjected to enough public scrutiny as a result of Ms. Pruitt’s actions.
“It is not easy for victims of sexual predators to appear at trial to discuss such personal and private matters with 12 jurors and a room full of spectators.”
