WINNSBORO, La. (AP) - A Louisiana district attorney says a former principal at a Christian school has pleaded guilty to five counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile stemming from encounters with underage male students.
District Attorney Mack Lancaster says Stephen Couch of Winnsboro accepted a plea deal in 5th Judicial District Court on Monday.
He could spend up to 7 years in prison and face a $5,000 fine per count when sentenced in May.
The Monroe News Star reports Couch previously worked at Apostolic Tabernacle Christian School in Franklin Parish.
