HANCOCK COUNTY, Ind. -- A former Mt. Vernon substitute teacher accused of having sex with students pleaded guilty Monday to one count of child seduction.

Kisha Nuckols was sentenced to two years of home detention through community corrections, and two years on probation.

After that, she will have 10 years of sex offender probation.

The probation department will determine if she will have access to her children. Three of her four children are under 18.

Nuckols was initially charged with four counts of child seduction and one count of dissemination of harmful material to minors.

Nuckols, previously a teachers aide/substitute teacher at Mt. Vernon Middle School, allegedly sent inappropriate photographs to a male student at the high school.

The student told investigators he and Nuckols had sex at least 10 times at her home, including when her children and husband were there.

In an interview with police, Nuckols reportedly admitted to having sex with the student and she "knew that the 'relationship' was wrong."

Nuckols also reportedly admitted to police that she had an inappropriate relationship with at least one other current Mt. Vernon Schools student and at least four other previous students.

His trial is set for Dec. 20.
