PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A former Paradise Valley High School teacher accused of having sex with a female student pleaded guilty Tuesday.

Jordan Doneskey, 26, pleaded guilty to three counts of attempted sexual conduct with a minor.

Doneskey was arrested in August 2012 on accusations of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl. The teenager's mom was also arrested in August for knowingly allowing her daughter to be in the relationship, police said.

Phoenix police said they were contacted by school officials at Paradise Valley High School about a possible inappropriate relationship between a student and a teacher.

During the investigation, police learned Doneskey had been in a relationship with the teen for several months.

"It's kind of surprising cause he didn't seem like he'd do anything like that, he seemed like a good teacher too, we had a sub today and I just thought he was sick or something, I didn't know," said sophomore Tyler Vandenheuval.

"I mean I think that's sad, I mean I don't think people should be doing that kind of thing. Especially from a teacher to a student," said sophomore Ernesto Rocha.

Police also learned the girl's mother had allowed her daughter to have a sexual relationship with Doneskey at her home. According to the police report, the mother knew since April and that both her daughter and the teacher told her their relationship was sexual in nature.

Police said the mother had an extensive employment history with both Child Protective Services and as a social worker and had an obligation to report the relationship.

Police said Doneskey admitted his involvement and was booked into jail on one charge of sexual conduct with a minor. The girl's mother was charged with child abuse and failure to report.

Donesky was arrested at home on the night of Aug. 23, 2012.

He will be sentenced April 25 at 8:30 a.m.

The name of the victim's 49-year-old mother was withheld to protect the identity of the victim.

Doneskey was placed on administrative leave. He's an English and journalism teacher at the school.

Paradise Valley School District released the following statement Aug. 24, 2012.

"The administration of Paradise Valley High School called Phoenix Police yesterday, Aug. 23, after a member of the school community expressed concern that teacher Jordan P. Doneskey was having a relationship with a 17-year-old female student at PVHS. Phoenix police arrested Doneskey last night, and also arrested the student's mother, whom they report was aware of the relationship and approved of it.

"Doneskey was hired at PVHS in August 2009, possessed a valid fingerprint card from DPS, and has no disciplinary actions on his personnel record with the district. There is no indication at this time that he had relationships with any other students during his tenure at PVHS.

"Upon Doneskey's arrest the Paradise Valley School District contacted the Arizona Department of Public Safety to invalidate his fingerprint clearance card, without which Doneskey cannot return to the classroom. Doneskey has been placed on paid leave, as required by state law (ARS 15-549, Compulsory leaves of absence for criminal charges, continued salary)."
