Ex-educator gets 15 years for sexual battery

HATTIESBURG, Miss. — A former Forrest County educator can avoid prison time following his guilty plea to having sex with a high school student if he complies with a detailed list of probation requirements.

The Hattiesburg American reports Brandon Hill filed a petition to enter guilty plea to a sexual battery charge Friday in Forrest County Circuit Court.

On Monday, Judge Bob Helfrich sentenced him to 15 years in Mississippi Department of Corrections' custody to remain suspended on the successful completion of five years of post-release supervision.

Some of Hill's requirements include remain at home between midnight and 6 a.m. and immediately register as a sex offender.

Hill's indictment accuses him of having a sexual relationship with a then-17-year-old Oak Grove High School senior basketball player.
