    BURLINGTON ó A former Burlington high school Spanish teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student has pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

    Forty-four-year-old Giovanna Yaranga was sentenced on Friday to probation and will have to register on the stateís sex offender registry for 10 years and get counseling as part of the plea deal.

    Yaranga had pleaded not guilty in May to four felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. She later pleaded not guilty to a charge of violating her conditions of release by contacting the student after a judge ordered her to stay away from the 17-year-old boy.
