A former Spanish teacher in the Canandaigua School District has admitted to having a sexual relationship with a student.  

Lisa Footer pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to endangering the welfare of a child and having sexual contact with a 16-year-old student in the parking lot of the Canandaigua Byrne Dairy last November.

Earlier this month, Footer also pleaded guilty to a similar charge in Manchester Town Court. That plea was for an incident that happened at her home last summer.

Stephen Sercu, Defense Attorney, said, "She expressed full remorse for her conduct. She recognizes that it was inappropriate. She hopes that the family and the victim can heal over time and she's also doing the best to heal her family also."

Footer was place on three years probation. She resigned from the Canandaigua City School District back in December after the charges were announced.
