PHOENIX (AP) — A former physical-education teacher in Phoenix who was accused of sexual misconduct with a female student has pleaded guilty to a trio of charges.
Nicole Wooten entered the pleas Monday to attempted child molestation, sexual conduct with a minor and attempted sexual conduct with a minor. The 38-year-old is to be sentenced on Jan. 6 in Maricopa County Superior Court.
Authorities say the victim was an eighth-grader at the Herrera School of Fine Arts & Dual Language in Phoenix in 2005 at the time of the alleged sexual misconduct.
Authorities say the charges stemmed from incidents that occurred at Wooten's home in Mesa.
Tempe police say they began investigating allegations of sexual misconduct after receiving information from Phoenix police.
