Former Coach Guilty in Sex Assault Case
Former River Ridge High School coach Robert Leslie Morrow faces between one and 25 years in prison.
A Cherokee County jury last week found Robert Leslie Morrow guilty of felony sexual assault.
Morrow in August 2011 was arrested by the Woodstock Police Department after the agency learned the former coach had sex with a student in 2010.
The student told police the incident took place inside Morrow's vehicle in a business park inside the River Park subdivision. The student also told another teacher, Kristin May of Canton, of the incident, but the teacher did not report it to authorities.
After an internal investigation, both Morrow and May eventually resigned in 2011 from the Cherokee County School District.
Morrow will be sentenced on March 14 in Cherokee County Superior Court, and faces between one and 25 years in prison, said Blue Ridge Judicial Circuit District Attorney Shannon Wallace.
