BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A former Burlington High School teacher accused of having sex with a student is expected to be sentenced in court Friday.

The Chittenden County State's Attorney says Giovanna Yaranga, 44, is expected to admit her guilt.

The move would be a change in course for the one-time Spanish teacher who pleaded not guilty in May to four counts of sexual exploitation of the 17-year-old.

The Burlington School District fired Yaranga following its own investigation.

    A fall hearing could provide the first clue to the fate of the state's recently-passed GMO labeling law. A group of food producers is suing Vermont over the mandated labeling of some products made with genetically engineered crops by 2016. The legal process is expected to take years, but experts say the first ruling could mirror the final ruling.
