ANDERSON, Ind.—A former teacher at Indiana Christian Academy is sentenced after pleading guilty to attempted sexual misconduct with a minor.

Stephen Lingle was sentenced to one year in jail and two years of probation.

Investigators began looking into Lingle acing inappropriately with a girl half his age last year.
