Nine years; that's how long a former East Texas teacher will spend in jail for having sex with a student.

Donald Dudley was convicted Monday for sexually assaulting a student who was 15 at the time.

Tuesday in court, Dudley's defense attorneys asked for leniency, pointing out the fact that the victim was the one to initiate the relationship. Prosecutors in the case were hoping for the maximum 20 year sentence, saying it would send a message to the community that this type of behavior won't be tolerated in our schools.

Prosecuting attorney Jason Parrish says, "Obviously, we wanted 20 years. We definitely felt that the defendant deserved 20 years. The jury came back with nine years confinement. Somebody that was eligible for probation didn't get probation. We were very pleased with that."

That sentence is in addition to a six month term Dudley is already serving for a June conviction in a similar case, with the same girl. He's also facing charges in Henderson County.
