A New Underwood teacher admits to having sex with one of his underage students.
Kyle Keegan, 26, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual contact with a 15 year old child in a 7th circuit courtroom Tuesday.
Keegan changed his plea to guilty, after state prosecutors agreed to drop a forth degree rape charge against him.
The state has also agreed not to pursue any other charges in relation to the matter, as part of the plea agreement.
He faces 15 years in prison when sentenced on March 11th.
"We take all these types of cases very seriously because they effect the community and they are important to our office. Clearly, I don't know if it's making an example, but we want to pursue the prosecution as best we can," said Ryan Ryder, with the Pennington County State's Attorney's office.
The rape occurred in the early morning hours of October 6th.
