WILLOWS, Calif. -- A man prosecutors identified as a teacher retired from the Chico Unified School District entered a plea of no contest to committing sexual acts on a child and was found guilty Nov. 13 in Glenn County Superior Court.

When sentenced on Jan. 9, 2009, Robert Dudley Theile Jr., 67, faces up to eight years in state prison.

He will also be required to register as a sex offender for life. The charge stemmed from allegations Theile performed lewd and lascivious acts on a 12-year-old girl during visits to his Capay home. Glenn County District Attorney Robert Holzapfel said four counts were originally filed, but three were dropped. He said the other three counts can still be factored into the sentence.

Theile was first charged in March. He remains free on bail until sentencing.
