Jan 28, 2013 -- 4:43am

A Sussex Technical High School teacher who was arrested in January 2012 for engaging in an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student, has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Department of Justice Spokesman Jason Miller says Judge T. Henley Graves on Friday accepted Charles Coursey's guilty plea to two felony charges of sexual abuse of a child by a person in a position of trust and an obscenity charge.

Police say the 38-year-old Milton resident also sent the teen obscene pictures of himself.

Coursey was also a part-time men’s basketball coach at Wesley College.
