A former LaFayette High School teacher and city councilman pleaded guilty last week to having sex with one of his students.

probation after making the plea in Walker County Superior Court on Nov.
4. Hodge also had to pay $2,850 in fines and fees.
According to a police report, Hodge had sex with a student from his
economics class twice during Christmas break last year. The first time,
the two met at a McDonald's. Hodge, 42, told the 17-year-old that he
bought her a Kavu bag, which looks like a backpack with one strap.
