A former athletic director in Georgia has been sentenced to prison for sexually assaulting a student.

Tony Christopher Jay, 33, of Ellijay, was sentenced to three years of initial confinement and 22 years of extended supervision, WJBF-TV reported.

Jay, also know as T.C., is also required to pay over $7,500 in fines, must register as a sex offender, cannot have contact with the victim, and he will surrender his teaching certification.

The charges stem from an eight-month investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation into allegations that Jay was having sexual contact with a student while the student was enrolled at Washington-Wilkes High School in Washington, Ga. 

The inappropriate contact continued for about a year, between August 2018 and May 2019, according to authorities, as reported by WRDW-TV.

On June 8, 2020, the GBI was requested to assist the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Office with the investigation after a complaint was filed concerning Jay allegedly having a sexual relationship with someone while they were a student at the school.
