A former San Diego school administrator accused of having sex with a student was found guilty Tuesday of nearly a dozen charges.
Kettrell Berry, ex-assistant principal at the San Diego Center for Children in Kearny Mesa, faced 14 counts of molestation and sex crimes involving a 16-year-old victim.
A jury found Berry guilty of 11 of those counts Tuesday. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for Aug. 2.
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. Berry worked as assistant principal for nine years.
The relationship with the teenage student became physical several months after the two met inside a classroom during school hours, the victim said in court in 2012. She said she developed feelings for him and they would often meet and engage in sexual activities for a span of about four months.
In 2012 Berry pleaded not guilty to the charges. They were dismissed in 2014 pending DNA evidence, but were later refiled.
