Notorious Naughty Teacher Diana Canter sentenced for sex with student

Diana Canter, female teacher from Christiansburgh, Virginia, who came infamous when her sexual relationship with a male student came public, has been convicted of eight misdemeanor charges. Canter pleaded guilty Wednesday to contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

She originally was charged with taking indecent liberties, a felony, but the charges were reduced. The former English teacher pleaded no contest. She was sentenced to a year in jail on each of the eight counts, with all time suspended.

Canter was arrested on one seemingly usual Tuesday night in 2010, and was charged with eight counts of custodial sexual intercourse with a minor. The acts with her student occurred between December 2008 and August 2009.

Arrest warrants filed in Montgomery County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court showed that the charges against Canter have offense dates of January, February, March and April 2009, with two charges stemming from each month So far the investigation indicates that none of the offenses took place on campus.

Police began their investigation after the boy contacted the police department. According to search warrant affidavits, last week the boy “made a report of a prior sexual relationship with Diana Canter, a teacher at Christiansburg High School, while he was a minor going to Christiansburg High School.”

Christiansburg police obtained warrants to procure from Christiansburg High School and the Montgomery County School Board office “documents, letters, files, disciplinary actions and complaints made in reference to” Canter between August 2008 and June 2009. Assorted documents were taken from both, but court records don’t specify what they are.
