Brent Woody, the one-time substitute teacher and freshman girls basketball coach at Parkway Central High School, pleaded guilty in October to charges of transporting a minor across state lines for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity. Yesterday he was sentenced to 151 months in federal prison for taking a 15-year-old to the Illinois home of his parents with the intent of having sex with her. According to the federal sentencing standards, he could have received life in prison.

To his parents house? Ugh.

But wait -- that's not all Coach Woody was up to when it came to afterschool activities.

Woody still has charges pending against him for eleven counts of statutory rape and four counts of statutory sodomy from two incidents with different girls in 2009 and 2010. Both of those victims were 15 years old as well.

He certainly has a type.
