A 24-year-old high school athletic trainer was sentenced Wednesday to community service for having sexual relations with a male high school student, prosecutors said.

Hope Ashley Jacoby of San Juan Capistrano pleaded guilty this month to four felony counts of unlawful sex with a minor. Orange County Superior Court Judge Gregory Jones reduced the felonies to misdemeanors and sentenced Jacoby to 240 hours of community service.

The sexual relationship between Jacoby and the youth started in 2008 when he was 16 and lasted about a year. She met him while working at Tustin High, prosecutors said.
