DAVIS, Oklahoma (KXII) A former high school teacher in Davis, Okla., who tried to marry one of her students has reached a deal with prosecutors to avoid further jail time.

District Attorney Craig Ladd said Tuesday his office made the deal with Cassandra White, 35, at the request of the 16-year-old victim and his family.

Ladd said the state dropped its solicitation case in exchange for White pleading guilty to four counts of felony computer crimes.

As part of that deal, White will spend the next 10 years on probation, surrender her teaching license, undergo psychological treatment, and perform 200 hours of community service.

She was arrested in April and was being held in the Murray County, Okla., Jail without bond.

White and the boy filed for a marriage license in December 2017, which was signed off on by the teen's father.

She resigned from her teaching position at Davis Public Schools the next day.
