Former Texoma Coach Sent To Jail

Newschannel 6 has just learned a former Crowell head football coach will serve jail time for the felony offense of improper relationship between a student and educator.

Brandon Roberts, 27, pleaded guilty today to the offense. He was ordered to serve 100 days in county jail followed by ten years probation. 

Roberts became the head football coach in Crowell in 2007. He was released from his duties in July of 2010. 

Officials said Texas Ranger Jay Foster started investigating Roberts in 2010 after receiving an anonymous letter with information about an affair between Roberts and a student. The letter stated the affair happened in 2008.

Officials said Foster contacted the student who confirmed the relationship. Officials said Roberts eventually admitted the allegations were true. 

District Attorney Staley Heatly said, "The victim and her family were hoping for this resolution to the case and they are very satisfied with the outcome."

In addition to jail time and probation, Roberts is ordered to pay a $5,000 fine and complete 100 hours of community service. He was also forced to surrender his teaching certificate in the state of Texas.

Roberts was represented by Heath Hyde of Sulphur Springs, Texas.
