HARTFORD (AP) - A former special education teacher from Hartford has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for having a sexual relationship with a teenage student.

Thirty-one-year-old Kari Jo Boll earlier pleaded guilty to fourth-degree rape and sexual contact with a child under 16 after admitting to having sex multiple times with the student, who was 15 at the time.

The Argus Leader says Boll initially faced 21 charges that could have led to a maximum 300 years in prison upon conviction. A plea deal capped the sentence at 30 years.

Boll was a teacher at West Central for three years before her arrest. She told investigators her relationship with the student began after he started working at her Hartford farm.
