A former sixth-grade English teacher in New York City was sentenced Monday to six months in jail for statutory rape.

Daniel Reilly, 36, pleaded guilty to having sex with a former student at his home in Forest Hills, Queens.

Police say Reilly carried on a more than nine-month affair with the girl that began when she was 14 years old.

Reilly will be on probation for 10 years and will be required to register as a sex offender.

The victim's family had contacted the school after the girl's sister saw sexually explicit text messages on her phone.

Reilly taught at Intermediate School 237 in Flushing.
