PITTSBURGH - A fired Pittsburgh high school teacher who got tattoos in a failed attempt to discredit two students who claimed he had sexual contact with them must serve three to 10 years in prison.
Michael White, who was sentenced Monday, lost his job at Perry Traditional Academy after police charged him last February.
The victims had told investigators they didn't see tattoos on Michael White, when the 31-year-old teacher allegedly had sexual contact with them in late 2012.
White had first denied having contact with the girls. He pleaded guilty in November to fondling the 15-year-old and having sex with the 16-year-old after Allegheny County prosecutors found a tattoo artist who confirmed White got the tattoos after the alleged incidents.
White also made the 16-year-old perform lap dances for male students.
