ATCHISON, Kansas (AP) – A former Atchison High School truancy officer has admitted that she had an unlawful sexual relationship with a former student.

Twenty-nine-year-old Heather Robinson, of Troy, pleaded no contest Monday to two counts of unlawful sexual relations with a former 17-year-old high school senior.

The relationship occurred while she was a contract worker for truancy reduction at the Atchison Public School District between October 2012 and May 2013.

Atchison County Prosecuting Attorney Gerald Kuckelman Jr. says nine of 11 charges originally filed against Robinson were dropped as part of a plea agreement.

A pre-sentencing hearing was scheduled for Sept. 15.
