A former teacher in Northwest Florida has been sentenced to three years in prison followed by 12-years probation.
Yesterday in a Chipley courtroom, James Seaboch was sentenced after pleading guilty to lewd and lascivious behavior and sexual molestation of a minor.
Last October, the 45-year-old former Vernon High School band director was arrested.
Two former students reported ongoing encounters with Seaboch dating back to 1998.
He allegedly locked the band office door and inappropriately touched them.
Under Florida sentencing guidelines, he could have received a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
