WEST LINN, OR (KPTV) -

A former teacher at West Linn High School pleaded guilty to sex abuse charges involving two male students.

Jonathan Peachey, 34, pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of third-degree sex abuse. As part of his plea agreement, additional charges of official misconduct and furnishing alcohol to a minor were dismissed.

Peachey was arrested last September at his home in Lake Oswego.

The investigation began when police received a report that a teacher was "inappropriately touching male students" at a home in Lake Oswego.

Peachey, a Spanish teacher who had been teaching for 12 years, was put on administrative leave at the time of his arrest. He later resigned.   

Peachey is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 24.

Peachey was also arrested for DUII in 2012 and had his license suspended for a year while serving two years probation.
