UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WUSA9) -- A Beltsville high school teacher and football coach has been sentenced to 10 years for having sex with a student the Prince George's County State's Attorney's Office said.

High Point High School teacher, Andre Brown, 34, was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being found guilty in September of sex abuse of a minor.

"We are pleased that Mr. Brown was given this sentence because he was in a position of power and had the responsibility to care for and protect the children in his school," said Alsobrooks. "Instead, Mr. Brown violated that trust and now not only is his life forever changed, but so are the lives of the victim and her family, as well as his own children and family."

Brown took the 17-year-old to the boy's locker room at High Point High School during homecoming of September 2013. He had sex with the girl in the locker room, officials said.

Brown will have to register as a sex offender for life once he gets out of prison.
