Former Metro Nashville Public Schools principal Ronald B. Anderson II was sentenced to three months in jail and 12 years of probation in Davidson County Criminal Court on Wednesday.

Anderson was suspended from his post as principal at John F. Kennedy Middle School in March 2009. A jury convicted Anderson on four counts of sexual battery by an authority figure in January.

Anderson had sexual activity with a minor he mentored at the Royal Life International Church. The victim, now an adult, testified in court that he suffered from depression following the contact.

In addition to the jail time and probation, Anderson will be monitored on the sex offender registry.

Three months in jail? What a joke.

Guy only got 3months!!! I mean, my exteacher got way a yr and 12 yrs probation for the same charges! The difference? my exteacher was in a relationship on a 17yr high student that she (my exteacher) taught! I strongly believe that middle school teacher should get more time than a high techer with the same charges, not less.
