Anna Walters Accepts Plea Deal
Anna Michelle Walters, 24-year-old former substitute teacher from Chesterfield, Virginia, has been sentenced to 12 months in jail after she accepted a plea deal that reduced the sex crimes to misdemeanors
Walters was originally facing two felony charges for a sexual relationship with a student. She was convicted of sexual battery and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
She was sentenced to 12 months in prison on the sexual battery charge and given a 12-month suspended sentenced on the delinquency charge. Walters must continue going to counseling, undergo a sexual offender evaluation and have no contact with her victim who is still a student at Cosby High School
She was also accused of seducing another teen who tweeted explicit pictures and texts messages that were said to be from the teacher. No charges were brought in this case because the ex-student was 18.
The 'inappropriate contact' with an unnamed male student happened last spring, police said, in a classroom but after school hours.
They had exchanged text messages for a sustained period of time.
The relationship was discovered after Justin Foster posted the nude photos of the teacher saying he wanted to 'screw her over'. He says Walters sent him the pictures after the two had sex. Anna Walters, whose mother also works at the high school, was fired when officials became aware of the allegations that she had sexual relations with a student.
