MANHATTAN, Kan. - Katherine Harder, 31, appeared for arraignment and sentencing in the Pottawatomie County District Court Thursday.
Harder was found by police in a parked car with a 17-year-old student near Tuttle Creek Dam March 26, 2008.
Harder pled no contest to an amended count of Aggravated Endangering of a Child. The amended count is a level 9 person felony.
Harder was found guilty and sentenced to 6 months with the Dept. of Corrections. She was granted immediate probation for a period of 12 months.
The amended charge was more severe then the charge of Unlawful Sexual Relations, but does not require registration pursuant to the Offender Registration Act, however, the charge cannot be expunged.
The Pottawatomie County Attorney's office says this resolution was reached after extensive discussions involving the victim and his family, the state and the defendant and her attorney.
