A former teacher in northwest Indiana has been sentenced for child solicitation.

Twenty-seven-year-old Eric Winn of Crown Point will spend six months behind bars and twelve months on probation.

Winn pleaded guilty earlier this month. He was accused of soliciting a former middle school student to engage in fondling and improper touching.

Winn will also have to register as a convicted sex offender.
