Cotton County woman pleas "no contest" to second degree rape of teen

Cotton County_On Monday, a Cotton County school teacher pled "no contest" to the second degree rape of a 17-year-old in 2006, and was convicted and sentenced all in the same day.  Geronimo school teacher Regina McKay was accused by one of her students of giving him cigarettes and alcohol to go to her home in Walters and have sex with her.

The District Attorney's office says the two had consensual sex, but it's considered second degree rape.  Under Oklahoma state law, it is illegal for high school teachers to have sex with students aged 16-20.  The Cotton County DA says McKay received a sentence of five years in prison, but she will serve only 30 days, and those will be on weekends.

McKay will be on probation for two years and must pay a $1,000 fine in addition to court costs.  She will be required to register as a sex offender, and will be required to confirm her address every three months.  McKay will be permitted to be with children only when there is adult supervision, however she will be allowed to attend her children's school functions.

McKay resigned from the school district last September, but must surrender her Oklahoma Teacher's License by this Friday.  She also must attend professional counseling for the next year.
