A Northampton County teacher accused of sexually abusing a student at school has admitted to the crime.

Nazareth Middle School drama teacher Shawn Salevsky pleaded guilty Friday in Northampton County court to charges of statutory sexual assault, indecent assault and corruption of minors.

According to police, 39-year-old Salevsky of Macungie, Lehigh Co., inappropriately touched a student several times over more than two years.

Investigators said the incidents happened at the school between January of 2011 and March of 2013.

Salevsky will be evaluated to determine if he's a sexually violent predator prior to sentencing.
