PASADENA — A former part-time basketball coach at Pasadena's Blair High School was sentenced to 250 days in county jail Monday for the sexual battery of a 15-year-old girl.
Charles Stringer, 24, of Altadena, who has been in jail since January, was given 231 days' credit for the time he has served.
Stringer was arrested after an incident with a female student in a tunnel under Marengo Avenue.
"There was some inappropriate activity with a young lady at the high school," Deputy City Prosecutor Alison Weissman said. "He won't be working with children anymore."
Stringer was convicted of three misdemeanor counts of sexual battery. Pasadena Superior Court Judge Frederick R. Rotenberg placed him on probation and ordered him to register as a sex offender and enroll in therapy.
