RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A former Richmond-area high school football coach will serve three and a half years in prison for malicious wounding.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/24sBs16) a judge sentenced 37-year-old Kedrick D. Moody on Friday to 10 years in prison, but suspended six and a half years.

Moody entered an Alford plea in February for badly beating and injuring a man in March 2015 who was seeing a woman Moody had dated and with whom he had two children.

The plea means he does not admit guilt but acknowledges prosecutors have enough evidence to convict him.

Moody’s attorney James Bullard Jr. asked the judge for leniency, saying the attack was out of character for his client.

Moody was a former football coach at Richmond’s Armstrong High School and Chesterfield County’s Meadowbrook High School.
