VANCOUVER, Wa. -- A former teacher from the Douglas County Area was sentenced in a Clark County, Wa. courtroom on Friday.
Richard Parrett, 42, pleaded guilty to two counts of 1st degree sexual abuse back in September, after he had sex with a student while he was a coach and teacher at Vancouver Christian High School in Washington state.
The judge sentenced Parrett to a little over 17 months in prison, but according to the Prosecutor's Office he could out in less than year with good behavior.
Parrett was a youth pastor at a church in Riddle, Ore., and was also a coach and teacher at the Canyonville Christian Academy.
