NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Davidson County Criminal Court jury has convicted a former Smyrna High School teacher of sexual battery by an authority figure.
Kenneth Anderson was found guilty Wednesday of eight counts involving a 16-year-old student in his biology class at the time of the incidents, which occurred in Anderson's Davidson County home.
He will be sentenced Dec. 5.
This is the second time in a little over a year that Anderson has been convicted of charges involving teenage girls. He was convicted in September 2007 of five counts of statutory rape and two counts of simple assault. His victim in that case was a 13-year-old friend of his daughter. Anderson was sentenced to one year in jail for that conviction.
