Former teacher who had sex with student goes to prison

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Probation has been revoked for a former band teacher at a southwest Missouri high school who pleaded guilty to statutory rape involving a 16-year-old student.

Alison Peck was given a five-year prison sentence in November 2009 in Greene County Circuit Court. But the sentence was suspended, allowing her to avoid prison time if she successfully completed five years' probation and a sexual offender treatment program.

On Friday, a judge reinstated the prison sentence.

The Springfield News-Leader reports Peck faces two criminal counts for failing to register as a sex offender and for multiple instances in which she failed to meet reporting requirements. Her probation officer also reported that she had two drug violations during that time.

Peck taught at Greenfield High School and previously admitted having an affair with a male student.
