Former Montgomery County Math Teacher Sentenced to 1 Month in Prison for Sex with Teen

A Philadelphia woman will spend one month behind bars for having sex with a teen boy -- a student at the Lower Moreland High School where she taught AP math courses.

Erica Ann Ginnetti, 34, was sentenced to 30 days in jail and 60 days of probation, according to the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office. She is scheduled to report to authorities on April 17, the DA's Office said.

Ginnetti, who was arrested in January 2014, had faced up to seven years for two offenses -- institutional sexual assault, and obscene and other sexual material. She pled guilty to those counts in December 2014.

Investigators said the relationship between Ginnetti and the student began in May 2013 when Ginnetti approached the boy at prom and asked him if he would like to work out at her gym. A few days later the boy allegedly emailed Ginnetti and she replied with her cellphone number.

The pair communicated regularly and Ginnetti sent a series of sexually-charged messages, including videos of herself undressing and performing sex acts on herself as well as “sexually-suggestive” photos depicting her in underwear and a bikini.

In July 2013, investigators said, the teacher had sex with the teen boy in her car in an industrial park near the border of Lower Moreland Township.

According to investigators, Ginnetti admitted to having sex with the teenage boy after officials became aware of the relationship.

Following Ginnetti's January 2014 arrest, the Lower Moreland Township School District suspended then fired the teacher.

As part of her bail conditions, Ginnetti was not permitted to have contact with any children except for her own kids — the eldest of which is a teenager.
