WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Amanda Iles, a former teacher at Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains, pleaded guilty Tuesday to raping a 14 year-old-boy, a former student, according to the District Attorney's office.

The former Eastchester resident will be sentenced on May 27.

According to the district attorney's office, she will be facing six months in prison, followed by 10-years of sex offender probation. Iles must register as a sex offender.

According to New York State law, Iles’ assigned sex-offender classification will determine if she will be listed in a public state directory.

Iles engaged in sexual encounters with the boy in Eastchester between June 11 and July 14, 2013, the DA said.

The inappropriate relationship between Amanda Iles and the 14-year-old student happened after Iles resigned her position, according to a statement from Archbishop Stepinac High School.

She reportedly knew the boy was a student at the school, said officials. When the boy's parents became aware of the encounters, they contacted Yonkers police.
