Former NC preacher, teacher sentenced to 4 years

GRAHAM, NC (AP) -- A 51-year-old former Baptist preacher and
Christian school teacher has been sentenced to up to four years in
prison for having sex with an 18-year-old student he taught and
coached.

The Times-News of Burlington reports that Denny Glenn Wall
pleaded guilty Monday to 10 counts of sex
acts with a student. He must complete 200 hours of community
service.

Wall was a pastor at Hico Baptist in Graham and a teacher at
Alamance Christian School. He resigned from those positions after
his arrest in February.

Investigators say Wall had sexual relations with the student
from September through January. Wall was previously the teen's
ninth grade Bible teacher, had coached her in soccer since eighth
grade and counseled her for emotional issues.

Wall apologized in court.
