A former Greenwood High School basketball coach and teaching assistant was sentenced Wednesday to nine months in jail for the sexual assault of a student by a staff member.
Dylan M. North, 26, of Greenwood previously pled no contest to the charges as part of a plea agreement. Clark County Circuit Judge Lyndsey Brunette also placed North on three years of probation and ordered him to work at least 25 hours a week or go to school full time, have no access to social media, internet or other interactive devices, undergo counseling deemed appropriate and have no contact with underage girls. She also ordered North to have no contact with his victim, her family or the school.
North was a basketball coach for the district from 2015 to 2020 and a special education assistant from August 2019 until Nov. 4, 2021, when the district put him on paid leave, according to court documents. North resigned his position with the district in January 2022.
A second charge of sexual assault of a student by a school staff member, a charge of child enticement and a charges of exposing a child to harmful material were dismissed but considered during sentencing.
