What is sexual violence?
A former coach and teacher at Greenleaf Friends Academy pleaded guilty Monday to felony injury to child in Canyon County after reaching a plea agreement on accusations of trying to sexually abuse a child.
Authorities arrested Trevor Douty, 29, in September after police received a tip. Douty was initially charged with attempted lewd conduct with a child younger than age 16.
Greenleaf Friends Academy is a private Christian school for students ages pre-K to 12th grade. Douty is not employed there this year.
Academy Superintendent Rod Lowe said Tuesday that Douty was “released from his contractual obligations last fall.”
After a mistrial in May, prosecutors agreed to a deal in which Douty pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of felony injury to child. He remains out of custody on bond.
Douty is set for sentencing at 8:30 a.m. Dec. 3. Felony injury to child is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
