Tammi Monty sentenced to a year in prison, terminated from MPS

MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee County judge sentenced Tammi Monty on Tuesday, July 10th to one year in prison plus three years of extended supervision.

Monty is the 40-year-old Milwaukee Public Schools teacher who pleaded guilty on May 21st to a child enticement charge. She was accused of having sexual contact with a 14-year-old boy.

The criminal complaint in the case says the boy told officials he received a text message from Monty, asking him if he wanted to go out with her. He replied in agreement, and Monty showed up to his home between 1:30 and 2 a.m. on January 28th. The complaint says the two drove to an empty parking lot and parked, and were listening to music.

The complaint says Monty then told the boy to get into the back seat, and take off his underwear, after which Monty removed her underwear as well. The complaint says Monty gave the boy a condom, and he opened it and was holding it when police walked up to the car.

The criminal complaint says a Milwaukee police officer saw an SUV in the KK Sports Center parking lot, and walked up to the driver’s side door. Using his flashlight, the officer saw two people in the back seat, both naked from the waist down.

Monty was suspended from her job at Manitoba School. MPS spokesman Tony Tagliavia released a statement to FOX6 News following the sentencing saying: "With the criminal case concluded, she will be terminated."
