A gym teacher who repeatedly had sex with a 14-year-old boy faces up to 12 years behind bars after pleading guilty to sex assault.
Disgraced Rochelle Cressman, 33, had sex with the schoolboy twice a week for eight months before she was finally caught.
Police in Titusville, Pennsylvania, said she told the victim she would kill herself if he told anyone about the abuse.
Cressman also threatened to harm him, according to reports.
The teacher, who taught at Titusville Middle School, reached a plea bargain after admitting three sex assault charges – which would normally carry a term of 20 years.

She had initially faced 66 criminal charges, but the majority were dropped as part of her plea deal.
Cressman was arrested after another person – who was not identified – found out and contacted police.
The abuse lasted from September 2018 to April 2019, the The Meadville Tribune reports.
Court documents reveal she told the boy “to not tell anyone of the relationship and threatened to harm herself and him if anyone were to find out”.
