Teacher who had sex with student out of prison

November 13, 2009 10:04:08 AM PST
A former East Texas teacher sentenced to nine years in prison after pleading guilty to having sex with a student is out of prison after serving four months. A state district judge has granted probation to 25-year-old former Hudson High School teacher Clark Lewing. The Lufkin Daily News reports the order comes at the request of the mother of the girl with whom Lewing had the inappropriate relationship.

At a hearing before state District Judge Paul White in Lufkin, the mother testified that her daughter blamed herself for Lewing's imprisonment and that keeping him there was harmful to her mental health. The family says it did not initiate Lewing's prosecution.

Lewing must now serve 10 years of probation.

Hudson is five miles west of Lufkin and about 150 miles southeast of Dallas.
