Bismarck teacher pleaded guilty to sex with teen

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- A former Bismarck middle school teacher scheduled to stand trial next week on allegations she had sex with a 15-year-old boy has pleaded guilty.

Thirty-five-year-old Susan Duursma was charged in September with three counts of felony corruption or solicitation with a minor. Authorities say she had sexual contact with the student from March 2013 to July 2013.

Duursma pleaded guilty Friday to one count of abuse of a child.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the plea agreement calls for Duursma to serve three months in jail.  A judge will decide whether to accept the plea deal.

Duursma was a physical education teacher at Wachter Middle School. She resigned in February after school district officials suspended her without pay in November.
