ANTIGO, Wis. (AP) -- A former Antigo High School football coach and retired special education teacher has been sentenced to six months in jail after pleading guilty to drug charges.
Fifty-five-year-old Scot Peterson entered the pleas to 13 charges including manufacturing marijuana. Thirteen other charges were dismissed.
A criminal complaint says Peterson admitted selling marijuana to friends for five years.
Peterson was also sentenced Thursday to four years of extended supervision. Several other educators in the Antigo and Merrill school districts have also been charged or are under investigation.
WSAW-TV says (http://bit.ly/KI2bSJ ) Petersen had previously pleaded not guilty to all 26 charges in Langlade County Circuit Court.
