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.
