A former physical education teacher and coach at both Vina High School and Vina Elementary School pleaded guilty in December 2014 to a single count of sexual misconduct, as well as a single count of second-degree assault. Sonny Tibbs, who worked as a coach at Vina High School for the past 9 years, but was working as a physical education teacher at Vina Elementary school at the time of his arrest, was arrested in November of 2013, just five days before another Vina Coach, Brian Keeton was arrested for also having sex with a 17 year old female student.
Tibbs, accused of having sex with a different 17 year old female student than Keeton, was originally indicted on three counts of school employee engaging in sex acts with a student under 19, but those charges were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea to second-degree assault and sexual misconduct. As part of his plea deal, he must surrender his teaching credentials, and register as a sex offender.
Tibbs will also serve a horrifying 60 days in jail, and be a good boy while on probation for 5 years. He was given a 10 year suspended sentence also, which means nothing as long as he completes his probation successfully.
