Teacher avoids prison after statutory rape allegation

MCALESTER, Okla., Sept. 3 (UPI) -- An Oklahoma substitute teacher was spared prison time after pleading no contest to rape charges alleging she had a sexual relationship with a male student.

Andrea Antrich, 24, a substitute teacher at Quinton High School, was initially charged with five counts of second-degree rape. She faced a potential 15 years in prison for each count but a judge granted her a 10-year suspended sentence on a single charge of second-degree rape and dismissed the rest.

The McAlester News-Capital said Quinton Police Chief Tim Reavis was called to the school in November after allegations surfaced that Antrich had been involved in a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student after school hours at her home in October and November.

Reavis said the teen's statement led to the second-degree rape charges.
