A former Montgomery County dance instructor was sentenced Wednesday to nine to 23 months in jail for having sex with a female student over the course of two years.

Frank Laurenzi met his victim when she was 10, prosecutors said, and began giving her private ballroom dance lessons when she was 14. By the time she was 15, he had sex with the girl during their lessons and videotaped some of their sexual encounters.
