Corruption of a Minor

N.D. Teacher Pleads Guilty To Corruption Of Minor

A former math teacher from Finley-Sharon High School in North Dakota pleaded guilty to a charge of corruption of a minor.

Jonathan Champagne was accused of having sexual contact with a 17-year-old female student. As part of a plea agreement, he was sentenced to five years in prison, with all but 60 days suspended.

Prosecutors dropped two other counts of corruption of a minor and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Champagne was hired by the Crookston School District in Minnesota last summer, but was fired after charges were filed in the Finley case
