Former Quincy Teacher Sentenced for Criminal Sexual Conduct
A former teacher and Information Technology Director for Quincy Community Schools received his sentence following a no contest plea of criminal sexual conduct Monday.
Jason Ferrell will spend between seven years, 11 months, to 15 years in prison for two counts of criminal sexual conduct after having a sexual relationship with a then-15-year-old student beginning in 2016. Ferrell pleaded no contest in November on the two counts, with a plea bargain that dropped two first-degree and two third-degree CSC charges.
Ferrell has been credited for 285 days spent behind bars at the Branch County Jail since his April 2017 arrest.
