A former teacher at Cabot Junior High School North was sentenced to six years in prison following pleading guilty last month to more than a dozen counts of sexual assault involving a juvenile student. Stracener was arrested in February 2012 after police received a report from a student’s mother about inappropriate contact, including over 40 text messages over a three day period. During an interview with authorities, the victim admitted to sexual contact and intercourse with the teacher at least 13 times. The sentence was for 15 years in prison with 9 years suspended. Stracener must serve at least two years before becoming eligible for parole.
