A former South Carolina teacher has been sentenced to seven years in prison after he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a student.
Multiple media outlets reported that 33-year-old Norbert Richard Ryan IV pleaded guilty to second degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
Police say the charges stem from Ryan's involvement with one of his 13-year-old students at his home in Myrtle Beach on two occasions last October. The eighth-grade social studies teacher at St. James Middle School was arrested after the girl's father called police.
Police say there is no indication Ryan forced himself on the girl.
Ryan resigned in December.
