    A former Pennsylvania teacher has pleaded guilty to charges she had sex with a 17-year-old student.
    Former Bangor Area High School reading teacher Rachel Farrell could face jail time when she's sentenced next month for corruption of a minor.

      Farrell on Thursday admitted she had a sexual relationship with the student between August 2010 and January 2011. She was charged earlier this year.
    Northampton County prosecutors say they suspect Farrell had relationships with other students but a lack of cooperation may prevent additional charges from being filed.
    Defense attorney Steven Mills says the relationship was an isolated incident and mitigating information will be presented at sentencing.
