A former teacher and coach in Bennington County admits he molested a former student.

40-year-old Stephen Peters, of Woodford, pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of a minor. Prosecutors say when he worked at the Bromley Brook School in Manchester, he had sexual contact with a 16-year-old girl there. It was consensual.

Under the plea deal, Peters will not go to jail. He will be placed on probation for five years and receive sex offender treatment.

Peters no longer works at the school.
