A Millbury man pleaded guilty to an amended charge related to an offense against a student while he was a substitute teacher at Lake High School in 2011.
Jacob Kubuske, 29, appeared Thursday in the courtroom of Wood County Judge Robert Pollex.
Kubuske pleaded guilty to one count of attempted menacing by stalking, a fifth-degree felony, as part of a plea agreement.
He was previously indicted on a single count of sexual battery, a third-degree felony.
Prosecuting attorney Gwen Howe-Gebers said the plea agreement was reached after discussions with the victim, as well as Ted Riley, Kubuske's attorney.
In presenting the facts of the case had the matter proceeded to trial, Howe-Gebers said that between June 1 and June 30, 2011, while a substitute at the school, the then-17-year-old victim and Kubuske had what was termed an "interest" in each other.
Later the victim indicated she was no longer interested. However, Kubuske reportedly twice attempted to have further involvement with her, which she indicated was unwanted.
Howe-Gebers said in court that the facts as presented in court reflected the charge as amended.
As part of the probation in the plea agreement, Kubuske will forfeit his teaching license and also will not coach.
He is to be sentenced April 10 at 3:30 p.m.
