BROWNSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A former West Tennessee gym teacher and coach has pleaded guilty to youth sex charges in a second county. A plea bargain let her out of jail.
Chanda Franks entered her latter plea Monday in Haywood County Circuit Court, according to The Jackson Sun.
She accepted a six-year suspended sentence and was released on time served. It was the same sentence agreed upon in Madison County on Jan. 11.
The plea agreements free the 35-year-old Franks from jail, where she was held for nine months.
Franks was formerly employed at Haywood High School in Brownsville.
The eight statutory rape counts and one of witness coercion involved one 14-year-old girl.
