A former teacher in north suburban Skokie will not serve time in jail for playing strip poker with two high school cheerleaders.

Thirty-year-old Jeffrey Tackes, of Bensenville, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor sexual exploitation of a child.

Tackes is a former math teacher and former cheerleading coach at Niles North High School.

Prosecutors say Tackes exposed himself to 16- and 17-year-old members of his cheerleading squad at his home back in 2010.

Tackes must register as a sex offender.
