The assistant principal at a Tennessee high school where basketball players are accused of raping younger teammates has been sentenced to community service and a class on mandatory reporting for failing to report the abuse.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports (http://bit.ly/27dSeVS) the judge on Wednesday approved a pre-trial diversion plan for Allard "Jesse" Nayadley, which includes 10 hours of community service. If he complies, his record can be wiped clean after six months.

District Attorney Neal Pinkston has said four boys from Ooltewah High School in Hamilton County were sexually assaulted during a team trip. One required emergency surgery for his injuries.

Pinkston charged Nayadley, basketball coach Andre Montgomery and assistant coach Karl Williams with failing to report the abuse in Hamilton County. Charges against Montgomery and Williams are pending before the grand jury.
