DAVIS, Okla. (KXII) - The former Davis High School teacher who tried to marry one of her students has reached a deal with prosecutors to avoid further jail time.

District Attorney Craig Ladd said Tuesday his office made the deal with 35-year-old Cassandra White at the request of the 16-year-old victim and his family.

Ladd said the state dropped its solicitation case in exchange for White pleading guilty to four counts of felony computer crimes.

As part of that deal, White will spend the next ten years on probation, surrender her teaching license, undergo psychological treatment, and serve 200 hours of community service.

She was arrested in April and was being held in the Murray County Jail without bond.

White and the boy filed for a marriage license last December, which was signed off by the teen's father.

She resigned from her teaching position at Davis Public Schools the next day.
