Former Sweetwater Middle School teacher and high school coach, Kevin Oliver, was sentenced to six years in prison on Monday. Oliver pleaded guilty after being in an inappropriate relationship with a student. Oliver is expected to self-surrender to authorities on January 22 a part of a plea agreement.
Oliver had resigned his position with the school district in September 2016, was indicted by a Nolan County Grand Jury on five criminal charges that each constitute second degree felonies in a previous hearing.
Oliver had been charged with two counts of sexual assault of a child, two counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact and improper relationship between an educator and student.
The warrants had been issued out of Nolan County, but the Nolan County District Attorney recused himself from the case, so Taylor County District Attorney James Hicks served as prosecutor. 
Oliver turned himself in to authorities in Roby of Fisher County at the time.
He was released on the very same day of his arrest after posting bonds of $45,000 for each charge.
