Former Phoenix PE teacher sentenced to 20 years in prison on trio of child-sex convictions


PHOENIX — A former physical education teacher in Phoenix who was accused of sexual misconduct with a female student has been sentenced to 20 years in prison and lifetime supervisor probation.

A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman says 38-year-old Nicole Wooten was sentenced Tuesday by Judge Sherry Stephens.

Wooden on Dec. 1 pleaded guilty to charges of attempted child molestation, sexual conduct with a minor and attempted sexual conduct with a minor.

Authorities say the victim was an eighth-grader at the Herrera School of Fine Arts & Dual Language in Phoenix in 2005 at the time of the alleged sexual misconduct.

Authorities say the charges stemmed from incidents that occurred at Wooten's home in Mesa.
