JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A former substitute teacher accused of taking a boy to a Jonesboro motel for sex will not go to prison but she will have to register as a sex offender.
On Monday, Latasha Schoolfield pleaded guilty in Craighead County Circuit Court to sexual indecency with a child and was sentenced to 36 months of probation.
In addition to paying court costs and fees, the judge also ordered her to register as a sex offender.
In 2016, police arrested Schoolfield after she admitted to having sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old boy at Motel 6 in Jonesboro, and four more times at his home in Caraway.
Because the incidents occurred in separate jurisdictions, the cases were tried separately.
Schoolfield was originally charged with four counts of second-degree sexual assault and one count of sexually grooming a child. Those charges were nolle prossed, according to the court documents.
