Former Staunton River High School teacher and football coach Richard Isaac Witt was sentenced Tuesday to four years in jail for his convictions of 10 misdemeanor counts of having sexual contact with a minor.
Bedford County Circuit Court Judge James Updike handed down a 10-year jail sentence, with all but four of those years suspended, during a hearing in which both victims of Witt's crimes, along with their mothers, testified about the impact Witt's actions had on them and their families.
