A former middle school teacher in Naples, Maine, has admitted under a plea deal that she sexually assaulted a teen boy in nearby Sweden last year. 

The Sun Journal in Lewiston reports (http://bit.ly/29AhfFF ) former Lake Region Middle School teacher Michelle Dunn pleaded guilty on Wednesday to unlawful sexual touching. 

The 41-year-old Woodstock woman must complete a sex offender evaluation and isn't allowed to contact the student. She won't have to register as a sex offender and her 90-day jail sentence was suspended. 

Dunn taught English language arts to seventh- and eighth-grade students. Authorities say she sexually assaulted a 14- or 15-year-old boy in September. She resigned weeks later. 

State officials say Dunn's license to teach in the state is active until July 2017. It's unknown if it will be revoked.
