ALBANY, Ore. (AP) - The former principal of Central Linn High School has pleaded no contest to a charge of second-degree sex abuse.  

The Albany Democrat-Herald reports that Michael Bremont was sentenced to 30 days in jail and five years' supervised probation. He will be required to register as a sex offender.  

The 39-year-old man is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 30 in Deschutes County on similar charges involving a 15-year-old Redmond student.  

Bremont was arrested in June on the Linn County charge, which involved improper contact with a 17-year-old Central Linn student between October 2005 and June 2006.

He then took a job with the Redmond School District and founded Redmond Proficiency Academy in 2009, where he was the principal.
