A former West Genesee school district teacher has pleaded guilty to having lewd conversations with a student.
Investigators say 49 year old Michael Spath was trying to engage an 8th grade girl in sexual contact recently. Spath is a former technology teacher at West Genny and had a 20 year career with the district. Investigators say Spath had lewd conversations with the girl between November and December of last year and he told the young girl that she made him "excited."
Spath is expected to get six months behind bars and five years probation. He also has to surrender his teachers license and register as a sex offender.
