IONIA, Mich. (WOOD) - A former Saranac High School teacher, the soon-to-be father of his ex-student's baby, was sentenced Tuesday to nine months in jail.
Krag Sanford, 59, received credit for one day served and will be on probation for 24 months. This sentence in Ionia County will run concurrently with a sentence on similar charges in Kent County. He is scheduled to be sentenced in Kent County August 14.
While a teacher in Saranac in the summer of 2010, Sanford had an affair with a female student, who was 16 at the time. The two filed for a marriage license in March.
In May he entered a No Contest plea to two counts of distribution of sexually explicit visual or verbal matter to a child, one day after pleading no contest to accosting a minor for immoral purposes in Kent County.
As part of the plea agreement Sanford gave up his teaching certificate and had to register as a sex offender.
