OTTAWA, Ohio (AP) — A former high school volleyball coach in northwest Ohio could be sentenced to 10 years in prison after being convicted of several sex crimes involving students.
Prosecutors say the former teacher and coach had sex with one girl and touched several others inappropriately. They say he was known as "Creeper" among the girls.
Jurors convicted 42-year-old Jeremy Stober on Thursday of sexual battery, gross sexual imposition and importuning. He'll be sentenced in a few weeks.
Stober denied the allegations. His attorney told The Lima News that Stober used bad judgment by texting the girls but maintained there was no proof he committed any crimes.
Five former students testified against him, including some of his former volleyball players. Some girls say he sent them thousands of texts.
