Former Cleburne Co. teacher/coach sentenced

CLEBURNE COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — A former Cleburne County teacher and girls basketball coach who pleaded guilty to having sex with a student will have to spend another 7 months in prison.

Bronson Ward, 33, was sentenced on Friday to 15 years. But, because the sentence was less than 20 years, the judge granted his request for probation. The judge also gave him credit for the 155 days he’s already served in jail.

Ward will also spend a year under monitored house arrest.
