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.
