GARLAND COUNTY, Ark. - A former middle school principal has changed his plea to guilty to sex charges involving a student.
Lester Dewayne Curry, 60, was arrested last year on charges of sexual assault and sexual indecency with a child.
On Monday, Curry pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual indecency with a child. Curry was sentenced to five years in state prison on each count. The terms will be served concurrently.
Officials say Curry had an inappropriate relationship with a 13-year-old female student at Lake Hamilton Middle School.
Curry retired as a principal at the end of the 2016 school year.
