STROUDSBURG, Pa. -

A teacher from Monroe County will spend more than a year behind bars for sexually assaulting a student.

Cynthia Hartopp, of Stroudsburg, was sentenced Tuesday to 15 to 48 months in state prison.

Hartopp was an art teacher at a high school in Pike County, but she was put on leave last April after she was accused of sexually assaulted a 16-year-old boy.

Hartopp pleaded guilty to the charges last year.
