Former Philadelphia middle school band teacher Bridgett Szychulski, 31, who taught at Lenape Middle School in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty to having sex with a 14-year-old student over a 6 month period in 2012.

Appearing in court, Szychulski pleaded guilty on Tuesday to statutory sexual assault and aggravated indecent assault on a minor.

Szychulski admitted to having sex with the 14-year-old boy ‘at least’ three times, including once in her vehicle and twice at the middle school, including her office and a storage room near the band room.

The former teacher had also been sending him lewd sexual text messages.

According to Prosecutors, she could receive two to three years in prison when she is sentenced in April.

A judge delayed the sentencing to evaluate if she is to be considered a sexually violent predator.

She will remain free on bail while awaiting sentencing.

Police launched an investigation back in September after a tip was phoned in on the child-abuse hotline.

The mother of two who is married, was pregnant at the time of her arrest. She was suspended from her teaching post she had worked for seven years at the Central Bucks district.
