Boedicker, who used to be the president of the Heritage Elementary Parent, Teachers, Student Organization, is accused of inappropriately touching a child on top of the clothes.
During the hearing, attorneys said Boedicker was confronted about the attention he was paying to the child. He, then told a friend who works at children services about the inappropriate contact and thoughts. Judge Richard Warren says the situation was unusual. He was given the deal because Boedicker quickly sought counseling before the situation escalated.
