— A former dance instructor has admitted a molesting a boy at his upstate New York studio.

The Post-Star reports that 51-year-old Timothy McGuire pleaded guilty Monday in Warren County court to a felony count of course of sexual conduct against a child and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child.

Under a plea bargain, McGuire isn’t expected to serve any of an 18-month jail sentence since he’d already served 15 months before his previous conviction was reversed by an appeals court last year because of technical errors during jury selection.

McGuire apologized after admitting he sexually abused the boy repeatedly from 1998 until 2006 at his Glens Falls studio.

He was also sentenced to 10 years on probation and forbidden to teach dance to children.
