A former San Diego school administrator convicted of having sex with a student was sentenced to nearly a decade behind bars Thursday.
Kettrell Berry, ex-assistant principal at the San Diego Center for Children in Kearny Mesa, was convicted in July on 11 counts of molestation and sex crimes involving a 15-year-old victim.
Berry was fired from the school for troubled teens in April 2012 after accusations surfaced about an inappropriate relationship, and an investigation led to his arrest that May.
The victim in the case testified that some of the sexual encounters took place on school property.
On Thursday, Berry was sentenced to nine years, eight months in prison.
