LITTLE VALLEY, NY - A former Southern Tier science teacher is headed to jail for the next six months for sending inappropriate texts to an underage girl.

That was the sentence handed down Tuesday by State Supreme Court Judge William Boller to 39-year-old Shane Riethmiller on charges of disseminating indecent material to minors and third-degree sexual abuse.

Police say the Dunkirk man, who taught at Salamanca High School, sent and received nude pictures from the girl over a period of three months back in 2011.

Riethmiller will spend five years on probation after he gets out of jail and was required to surrender his teaching certificate as a condition of his plea.
