A former Prince George’s County teacher and head football coach was convicted of sexual abuse of a minor Friday after a 17-year-old student alleged that he had sex with her in the boys’ locker room during homecoming.
A jury found Andre Brown, 33, guilty Friday in the case stemming from a September 2013 incident at High Point High School in Beltsville, prosecutors said.
Brown had been out on bond, which was revoked after Friday’s conviction, according to prosecutors.
Brown’s first trial in March ended in a hung jury. He faces up to 25 years in prison and is scheduled to be sentenced in October.
“As an educator who had the responsibility to care for and protect the students of his school, there is absolutely no excuse for Mr. Brown to engage in sex with a 17-year-old student,” Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said in a statement announcing the conviction.
The attorney listed for Brown could not be immediately reached for comment.
