A former middle school teacher stood before a Franklin County judge Friday to hear her punishment for sending sext messages and inappropriate pictures of herself to at least one student.

Andrea Opell, 29, had previously admitted to sending explicit messages and photos between January 2013 and May of this year while serving as an educator for Elkhorn Middle School.

She later resigned and offered up her teaching certificate as part of a plea deal, according to officials.

We're told Opell will no longer be allowed to teach in the state and will serve five years of probation as her sentence.

Opell is also prohibited from having any contact with students in Franklin County.
