Ex-Md. Teacher Pleads Guilty in Affair With 17-Year-Old

A former Maryland teacher charged with plotting to kill his wife so he could be with a 17-year-old has pleaded guilty to two counts of fourth-degree sex offense.

In exchange for Ethan Richard Estevez's guilty plea Monday, prosecutors dropped charges of sex abuse of a minor and soliciting someone to commit murder, The Baltimore Sun reported.

Estevez, 31, of Churchville, entered the plea in Harford County Circuit Court. He was sentenced to 11 months in jail, to be served beginning Feb. 16.

Estevez was a teacher at the Center for Educational Opportunity in Aberdeen. He was charged last year with having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl who wasn't his student.

Estevez's wife has filed for divorce.
