FORT WORTH (AP) - A 45-year-old ex-business teacher and cheerleading coach in North Texas has been sentenced to probation for having sex with a male student.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Tuesday that the boy graduated last year and was Bedinger’s student while a junior and a senior. Investigators say the boy was 17 at the time of the sexual relations with the educator.

An affidavit indicates the boy admitted the relationship to his father.
