Teacher Pleads No Contest in Student Sexual Relationship Case

Lynchburg, VA - A former Jefferson Forest High School coach and teacher pleaded no contest to charges that he had a sexual relationship with a student Friday.

Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Kelly Osterbind says George Weston Katze, 24, started a relationship with a female student in September 2011.

She says it started with flirting but turned serious in October when Katze invited her to his apartment.

Osterbind says Katze confessed the relationship to his wife and an assistant principal at Jefferson Forest as well as police.

A judge found Katze guilty on both counts and set a sentencing date for October 26.
