Former Noblesville High School teacher pleads guilty to two counts of child seduction

A former Noblesville High School teacher pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of having inappropriate sexual relationships with two students.

Michael Andrew Douce, 31, was employed as the assistant director of choirs at Noblesville High School until December, when the school confirmed it was "beginning the process of terminating employment" of a then-unidentified teacher.

Probable cause documents were filed in January accusing Douce of dissemination of matter harmful to minors, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and child seduction.

The charges stem from alleged relationships with two female students at Noblesville High School, both between the ages of 16 and 18.

Both students told police they had engaged in sex acts with Douce on school property.

On Thursday, Douce pleaded guilty to two counts of child seduction, a "C" felony.

A sentencing date was set for 4:15 p.m. on September 3 in Hamilton County Superior Court 1.
