TUCSON, Ariz. -- A former snowboard instructor has been sentenced to seven years in prison for having sex with a 13-year old Tucson girl.

Pima County prosecutors say 23-year-old Alexander Peth was sentenced Monday following a guilty plea to two counts of sexual conduct with a minor.

After his release from prison, Peth will serve 10 years of probation.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that Peth met the girl and her family in February while working as a snowboard instructor at Sunrise Ski Resort in the White Mountains.

The family hired Peth to teach their daughter to snowboard.

Prosecutors say Peth and girl continued their relationship in Tucson, where they each live.

The girl's parents found out about their relationship and notified police.
