Former Naperville North High School guidance counselor John Carbonaro was formally sentenced Tuesday to probation and jail for having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student.

Carbonaro, 35, of Warrenville, pleaded guilty in January to criminal sexual abuse in exchange for 30 days of jail work release, 30 months of probation, and 30 days in the DuPage County Sheriff's Work Alternative Program. He also must register as a sex offender for 10 years.

The victim was a female student who had Carbonaro as a guidance counselor and a coach on the school softball team. In the spring and summer of 2010, the two developed a friendship that involved sending each other text messages and the victim baby-sitting for Carbonaro's children.

On four occasions, authorities said, Carbonaro had sexual contact with the teen at his home, including once while his wife and children slept. The DuPage Children's Center launched an investigation after a Naperville North parent reported rumors of the relationship.

Carbonaro's sentence was announced in court last month but Judge Blanche Hill Fawell postponed imposing it until Tuesday. Carbonaro was scheduled to report to jail at 6 p.m., Assistant State's Attorney Enza LaMonica said.

Carbonaro had no prior criminal history and no longer works at Naperville North. His attorney declined to comment outside of court.
