Nelson Track Coach to Serve 7 Months for Sex with Teenager

April 8, 2010

A former Nelson County High School track coach and special education teacher will serve seven months in jail on a sex charge involving a 16-year-old girl.

Richard Seely Noles was sentenced this week in Charlottesville Circuit Court to five years with all but seven months suspended. The 23-year-old Charlottesville man also must register as a sex offender.

He had pleaded guilty in October to taking indecent liberties with a child by a person in a custodial or supervisory relationship.

Noles resigned in February 2009 after being charged in Nelson with computer solicitation of a juvenile. Nelson prosecutors decided not to pursue that charge after Noles pleaded guilty to the Charlottesville charge.
