sentenced to two years community control
BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA — Former teacher Irene Khan, 34, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to having sex with a 15-year old student.
Khan entered a plea to two years community control followed by 10 years probation. As part of her plea, she will be a registered sex offender for life.
Khan, who was a science teacher at Imagine School in West Melbourne, was arrested in June 2012 and alleged to have engaged in sexual activity with a male student of hers over a period of several months during the 2011-2012 school year.
Khan admitted to initiating the relationship after the student wrote his phone number on a classroom board, and police said she met the student in motel rooms.
“She got into a sexual relationship with him over several months and we got information on that and we brought the victim in and questioned him,” West Melbourne police spokesman Steve Wilkinson told WESH TV.
If Khan breaks the conditions set forth by Brevard Circuit Court Judge James Earp, she could be sentenced to prison for 30 years.
