A Loudoun County High School teacher today pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges following her arrest on allegations that she sent racy photos of herself and solicitations for sex to students.
Alison Briel, 25, a marketing teacher and DECA advisor at the school, was arrested April 30 on three counts of contributing to the delinquency of minors. In Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court six days later, she entered a plea agreement that would result in one year of probation and a three-year jail sentence that would be suspended if she commits no other crimes. She also will have to undergo a psychosexual evaluation, have no contact with the victims and have no unsupervised contact with anyone under 18.
Briel, who was hired by the school system in 2017, was suspended from her position in November, when the Leesburg Police Department began its investigation. The communications with the students occurred between December 2017 and November 2018.
