(Scroll down for video) Prosecutors released a shocking and disturbing video, showing a male teacher kissing his student on the lips.

Now, the teacher has pleaded guilty to battery and to the surprise of many parents, the judge allowed him to return to work as a teacher.

28-year-old Brian Kornbluth was teaching fourth grade at the Somerset Academy charter school in Boca Raton, Florida, when he asked another teacher to sent the boy into his class.

The teacher became suspicious and later questioned the child. The 10-year-old victim’s sister said that the teacher offered the two of them gummy bears in exchange for kisses so they both kissed him.

Police were called and Kornbluth admitted to kissing the young boy, but he denied kissing the sister, according to the arrest report.

The teacher was arrested after the 11-second video showed Kornbluth sitting at his desk and talking to the boy. Soon, the boy embraced his teacher and kissed him on the lips.

Kornbluth’s Attorney Kristine Rosendahl asked the judge to drop the charges against her client in regards to kissing the girl as there was not enough proof of that.

Prosecutors agreed to drop that charge and Kornbluth pleaded guilty to one count of battery.

He was given a light sentence of one year probation, and he was allowed to continue teaching children while on probation.

Rosendahl said that her client “is not currently teaching, but he plans to continue his career as an educator at a different school.”
