Former Rock Bridge high school teacher, Judith Burke pleaded guilty to second-degree child molestation after a 16-year-old student accused her of exposing her breasts to him on two occaisions and touching him innappropriately during the school's summer session.

The student said Burke called him ten times over the summer and left an innappropriate voicemail on his cell phone.

Burke received six months in Boone County Jail. Judge Jodie Asel suspended the execution of Burke's sentence, so the teacher will only serve fifteen days in jail before she is released on home detention and will serve two years supervised probation.

Burke will be required to register as a sex offender.
