DOVER, N.H. — A former New Hampshire high school math teacher who was accused of kissing a 15-year-old female student has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports the 41-year-old Blanc was accused of hugging the student and kissing her neck and hand in January at Somersworth High School. Blanc, a math teacher, resigned a few days later and was charged in February.

He was sentenced to 12 months, with all but one month suspended. He’ll be on probation for two years after his release.
