An Idaho middle school physical education teacher has admitted having sexual contact with a 14-year-old male student.

Kari Atkinson, (pictured left) of Idaho Falls, taught at Sandcreek Middle School in Ammon, which is near Idaho Falls.

The 28-year-old Atkinson was originally charged with five counts of lewd conduct with a child under 16.

Atkinson pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of lewd conduct with a minor. In exchange for a guilty plea, prosecutors agreed to drop three other counts against Atkinson.

She was arrested on Sept. 8, after the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous phone call revealing Atkinson’s relationship with a student.

A self-written profile of Atkinson on the school’s Web page says that she was a student at Sandcreek when she was 13 and that she also now directs a youth bootcamp class for teens at an athletic club.

A judge ordered her not to have any contact with the victim and she must undergo a psychological evaluation.

Atkinson will return to court on Dec. 17 for sentencing. Her maximum penalty is life in prison with a $50,000 fine.
