OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - A former high school softball coach will spend the next three years in prison after pleading guilty to the enticement of a child.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (https://bit.ly/1ZzCfw9) reports 36-year-old Billy Joe Dill was sentenced to 10 years Thursday, but the judge suspended seven years. He will also have to serve probation for five years, and he will have to register as a sex offender.

Dill, a former softball coach at Vardaman High School, was originally charged in April 2015 with fondling, sexual battery and enticement of a child in Calhoun County Circuit Court.

Calhoun County Sheriff Greg Pollan said the incident allegedly occurred in March 2015 on school grounds. He said the incident was reported to an assistant teacher, who told school personnel, who contacted law enforcement.
