MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A former Crawfordsville teacher and coach will avoid prison time for child seduction.
According to online court records, 26-year-old Michael Demeter was in court today for a plea and sentencing hearing.
The court found him guilty of two counts of child seduction.
Demeter was a teacher from 2013 to 2016 within the Crawfordsville Community School Corporation.
He also coached girls tennis and boys basketball. Superintendent Scott Bowling said Demeter was released by the corporation as a part-time coach after the investigation.
According to court documents, Demeter had sexual relationships with two female students in 2015. Both girls said they tried to end the relationship and Demeter would become irate and threaten to harm himself.
The girls blocked Demeter from social media. The mother of one contacted Demeter on Facebook, telling him to leave her daughter alone.
He was sentenced to four years of home detention followed by four years of probation.
