ALBANY — Jason Glen Schultz, a former girls soccer team coach at Sherwood Christian Academy, was sentenced on Monday in Dougherty County Court to a sentence of five years in prison followed by 20 years on probation, according to court documents.
Accusations surfaced in December 2014 when Schultz, son of former Sherwood Christian Academy headmaster Glen Schultz, was dismissed from his teaching position because of an improper sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student.
The incident did not occur on school grounds, according to officials.
Warrants for sexual assault by a person with a supervisory or discipline authority over another individual were later issued against him by the Dougherty County Sheriff’s Office.
According to reports, Schultz was residing in South Carolina when the warrants were issued and he turned himself in to authorities in January 2015.
Schultz, 40, pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault of a student.
According to court documents, Schultz was sentenced to five years in prison followed by 20 years on probation on each charge, with the two sentences to be served concurrently. He will also be credited for time served from Jan. 27, 2015 until Feb. 10, 2015.
Schultz also was ordered to pay $5,000 in fines and must register as a sex offender. The court ordered that he must turn himself in at noon on Feb. 1, 2017 at the Dougherty County Jail.
