A judge sent a local teacher directly to jail, moments after she admitted to sexually assaulting a student. Keri Ann Brekne admitted in Northampton County court to repeatedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old female student at her Bethlehem home.

The 28-year-old taught in New Jersey, and brought the student to her home.

After Brekne entered the guilty plea, the judge immediately revoked bail, and sent her to prison to await sentencing in October. She faces up to 50 years in prison.
