FOX LAKE – A former Grant Lake High School teacher who admitted to having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a student last year has been sentenced to 30 months of probation, The Associated Press reports.

As part of a plea deal, Amber Kraus, 30, of Mundelein, pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, the wire service reported.

The judge barred Kraus from having any contact with the 16-year-old victim, his family, the high school or any minors under the age of 17, the AP said.
