Teacher sentenced for sexual assaulting student

A teacher at a Northampton County school who admitted to sexually abusing a foreign exchange student has learned his fate.

Richard Kim was sentenced to 5-10 years in state prison Friday and will serve 10 years of probation.

Kim pleaded guilty in May to indecent assault and corruption of minors stemming from several incidents in 2011.

Kim sexually assaulted a 15-year-old student 17 times while he was working at ACE Education USA in Pen Argyl, officials said.

The school houses and educates students from Korea.

Kim's parents own the school.
