classroom 1

A disgraced Indiana school teacher got slammed with a four-year prison sentence for sexually assaulting a student in his classroom when she was just 13 years old, according to a report.

Eric Gerdes, 39, pleaded guilty in October to charges that he molested the girl between 2011 and 2013 while he was a teacher at the now-defunct Imagine Master Academy charter school, WPTA-TV reported on Monday.

The young victim told investigators that Gerdes, of Huntington, Indiana, also forced her to perform sex acts while video chatting.

Gerdes later taught at Crestview Middle School in the Huntington school district, WPTA said.

He was initially charged with two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, one count of child molesting, one count of vicarious sexual gratification, and one count of dissemination of matter harmful to minors, according to WANE-TV.

Gerdes pleaded guilty to one count of sexual misconduct with a minor in exchange for prosecutors dropping the other charges against him, the station said.
