One year probation and a $250 fine is the punishment for a former Crestline teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student.

Brittany Hall, 25, of Bucyrus, pleaded no contest Tuesday in Crawford County Common Pleas Court to an amended charge of first-degree misdemeanor assault. She also surrendered her state teaching license.

Hall was originally charged with felony counts of sexual battery and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. She could have been sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison if she had been convicted of the original charges.

Authorities say the victim was a Crestline High School freshman when the incidents occurred between March 1 and May 31, 2012.

Hall was placed on paid administrative leave May 3, 2013 after the police department opened an investigation. She resigned in March 2014.

Hall was hired in 2011 as an English teacher. She also worked as the girls basketball coach and baseball volunteer at Crestline.
