The former St. Charles County teacher who sexually assaulted a 10-year-old, will serve probation.

KMOV reports the victim's family did not want the case to go to trial and that led to the plea agreement. Joseph Maddock will serve five years of probation after pleading guilty to child molestation charges. The abuse happened in early 2013 after Maddock had convinced the boy's family to allow him to home school the child.

Maddock has previously taught at 10 schools in the St. Louis area.
