Former Cobb County teacher sentenced for sexually assaulting student

A former Cobb County teacher will spend five years in prison after admitting to repeatedly sexually assaulting one of his students.

Spencer Herron, who taught video production at Kell High School, pleaded guilty last week to five counts of sexual assault of a student.

Investigators say Herron's relationship with the victim began when she was 16 and lasted several years.

Records indicate the sexual acts took place on the school's campus and against the student's wishes.
