Former Missouri Teacher Sentenced to 60 Days
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A former Jefferson City middle and high school band teacher has been sentenced to 60 days in jail for having sexual contact with a student.
The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports that Christopher Knehans's attorney argued for a 30-day sentence Wednesday. But Judge Dan Green Wednesday ordered the maximum 60 days allowed by the plea agreement, beginning immediately.
The 39-year-old pleaded guilty in September to two counts of sexual contact with a student.
Under the sentence, Knehans will serve three years supervised probation after he is released from the jail. He also will be required to register as a sex offender.
The indictment said he inappropriately touched a 17-year-old student in September 2011.
