A middle school gym teacher in Woodbridge is going to jail for having sex with a teenage student. Craig Yarnall, a teacher at Colonia Middle School agreed to a three-year prison term in exchange for his guilty plea Thursday.

But he could get out after only a few months behind bars.

Yarnall also must give up his teacher's license and can never hold a public job in New Jersey.

Police say they found Yarnall in a vehicle with the 17-year-old student in a dark area. Investigators say the two had been having sex for nearly a year, starting when she was 16.
