High School Coach Admits to Giving Alcohol to Students
A cross-country girls’ coach from Alabama recently pled guilty to giving alcohol to one of his students, a 17-year-old girl. The coach is 24 years old now, is no longer an employee of the school district, but had taught for the past two years before this disgrace. He has been sentenced to one year of probation for the charges of disorderly conduct and selling or furnishing alcohol to a minor.
“When parents send their kids to school or a school-run program, I think there’s an expectation there that the faculty is going to act almost as second parents,” said Heather Levandoski, the Assistant District Attorney. This is just one more story that undercuts exactly how much alcohol can impact someone’s life. Though it might not be you getting caught giving alcohol to minors, alcohol can still ruin your life to the same extent as for this coach.
