"A former Montgomery County English teacher was sentenced to six months in jail Thursday for distributing cocaine to a student, according to attorneys in the case.

During her sentencing hearing, Theresa Duarte apologized to the Thomas S. Wootton High School community for the embarrassment caused by the crime, said her attorney, William Brennan.

Duarte, once dubbed "the coolest woman alive" by students who put together a Wootton yearbook, had pleaded guilty to distribution. Brennan said she provided cocaine to a student at her home. Duarte is due to report to jail Monday, and also faces three years of supervised probation, said Emily White, a spokeswoman for the Montgomery County state's attorney's office. "
