SOMERVILLE – A 29-year-old Montgomery High School teacher has been arrested and charged with sending nude photos of herself and engaging in sexually explicit conversations through social media with a 17-year-old student.

Bronx high school teacher who admitted to performing oral sex on her 14-year-old student won’t face jail time — and she might even return to the classroom.

Dori Myers, 30, last month pleaded guilty to criminal sex act for the Nov. 2016 incident at her former workplace, New School for Leadership and the Arts in Kingsbridge, where she taught social studies.

Myers’ heinous crime, which reportedly happened multiple times, was discovered after another teacher found out by way of the victim’s friend.

On Wednesday, Judge Michael Obus sentenced the woman to 10 years’ probation and found her to be a Level 1 sex offender. Prosecutors had asked the judge to sentence Myers to a minimum of two years in prison.

As part of her plea agreement at Manhattan Criminal Court, Myers also got to keep her teaching certificate

Witnesses say Whetzel did not wait until graduation.

In a frail voice, the 36-year-old former McKinley High School teacher apologized for having sexual relationships with three male students and to the teaching profession, school district and the victims “for putting everyone in this position.”

Her attorney, Brad Iams, addressed Stark County Common Pleas Judge John Haas, pleading for leniency and predicting she would not re-offend since she’ll never again be in a teaching position. He also spoke of how she wrecked her career and subjected herself to public humiliation.

Then it was Stark County Assistant Prosecutor Christy Donnelly’s turn. She asked for prison time, citing concern the defendant “has not fully held herself accountable for her actions.” In a court-filing, she specified a term of four years.
