Ex-NH teacher accused of sending sexual emails, videos to student will plead guilty
NASHUA (AP) — A former high school teacher in New Hampshire accused of sending sexually explicit emails and videos to a 16-year-old female student has agreed to plead guilty to two charges of endangering the welfare of a child, and will relinquish his teaching certificate and seek counseling.
The Telegraph of Nashua reports the notice was filed shortly before the start of a hearing Monday on Robert Todd Wiley's motion to dismiss the charges. Wiley is scheduled to formally plead guilty June 2. The plea agreement says he would be sentenced to two 12-month jail terms, all suspended, and serve three years of probation.
In March, Wiley's lawyer argued that the material isn't obscene and is protected speech under the state and U.S. constitutions.
The 63-year-old Wiley, who taught in the Merrimack school district, was arrested last year.
