Former Prosser Career Academy teacher pleaded guilty Monday to sexually exploiting a student in 2013 when she was a 16-year-old sophomore.

Scott Gallus kept his hands clasped behind his back and spoke in a quiet voice as he admitted to getting the girl drunk on sangria at a North Side tapas restaurant and then sexually abusing her in his car.

Under his plea, Gallus will serve 90 days in jail followed by two years of specialized sex offender probation in which he agreed to have no contact with children or the internet. He also will have to register as a sex offender for 10 years.

Dressed in a white pullover and gray slacks, the 58-year-old blew a kiss to family members in the gallery before he was led from the court chamber to jail just before noon.

Family members declined to comment through Gallus’ attorney David Will.
