Former Olean teacher sentenced

OLEAN, N.Y. -- A former Olean teacher has been sentenced after he pleaded guilty to a criminal sex act charge. 

Robert Washington was accused of having sexual contact with a 13-year-old boy. He originally faced six counts of sex abuse and other charges. 

On Monday, he was sentenced to six months in jail, 10 years probation and a 10-year order of protection was filed for the victim, whose name will not be released. 

Washington will also have to register as a sex offender. His level will be determined at a later hearing. 

In April, Washington pleaded guilty to a single charge of third-degree criminal sexual act. In June 2016, 2 On Your Side learned Washington had given a statement of admission to an Olean Police captain.
