A former Aurora teacher is sentenced to three years in prison for sexually abusing a student.

Robert Steck was a teacher at Cowherd Middle School.

Last December, he was convicted of abusing and soliciting a child.

Prosecutors say he had sexual contact with the boy between December of 2005 and April of 2006 when the victim was 13-years-old.

In addition to the prison term, Steck must undergo counseling and register as a sex offender.
