      Former Palmyra coach gets five-year prison sentence

      Former Palmyra High School teacher Randall Shepard pleaded guilty to charges related to an inappropriate sexual relationship with a student.

      The former assistant football coach was charged in an investigation that began in January.

      An agreement with the Marion County prosecutor allowed Shepard to plead guilty to a lesser charge.

      Marion County Circuit Judge Rachel Bringer sentenced Shepard to five years in prison.
