NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) _ A 31-year-old former teacher at a parochial school in Sprague has been sentenced to five years of probation for sending inappropriate texts to a female student.

Robert Pfeiffer of Hebron had pleaded no contest in April to a charge of risk of injury to a minor.

Prosecutors say Pfeiffer sent messages seeking a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student at the Academy for the Holy Family in 2010.

They say he resigned after telling the principal at the school he was texting hypothetical scenarios to ensure the girl would be able to say `no’ to boys in the future.

As part of his plea deal, Pfeiffer has agreed not to teach for the next five years.
