LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ A jury has convicted a former Lincoln High School girls basketball coach of child abuse but acquitted him of sexually assaulting a student in a classroom.
Lancaster County District Court records say the verdicts were rendered Friday for 34-year-old Marcus Perry. His sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 2.
Police say a 17-year-old student told school officials and officers that Perry touched her genitals in an in-school suspension room on Dec. 7. She testified that she didn’t consent to the contact but also testified that she didn’t get up and leave or tell him to stop.
