ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A Bible studies teacher who used to work at Sherwood Christian Academy will serve two years for child molestation.
Shawn Baxley, 35, accepted a plea deal Monday morning, but denies guilt.
He was sentenced to serve two years of a 20 year sentence. He is banished from Dougherty County, and its contiguous counties for the 20 year term. He must also be registered as a sex offender.
Baxley, who was fired from Sherwood, was accused of inappropriately touching a teenage girl who was not his student in May 2008.
The victim says he touched her, but it wasn't until March 2010 that she told a friend, who told school leaders, and they called law officers.
