An ex-teacher at Cholla High Magnet School was sentenced Tuesday in a case involving inappropriate conduct with a student in 2016.

Under a plea agreement, Pima County Superior Court Judge Deborah Bernini sentenced Eddie Rodriguez to three years probation for aggravated assault on an incapacitated victim, said Krisanne LoGalbo, a court spokeswoman.

Rodriguez is not eligible for early termination. He also was not ordered to register as a sex offender, but if he violates his probation a judge could decide otherwise, LoGalbo said.

In October 2016, Tucson police were called to Cholla, 2001 W. Starr Pass Boulevard, where a 15-year-old student reported that Rodriguez made sexual contact with her while on campus.

Rodriguez was arrested on a sexual abuse charge. At the time, district officials placed Rodriguez on administrative leave.
