A former Dublin coach charged with improper relations with two male students pleaded guilty to the offenses earlier this month.
Norberto Briseno, 27, pleaded guilty to two second-degree felonies and was sentenced to 10 years deferred adjudication probation, according to District Attorney Jason Cashon.
A second degree felony carries a potential sentence of two-20 years in prison.
If Briseno fails to adhere to the probationary agreement, he could be sent to prison for the violation.
Court records show Briseno was sentenced on May 14 in the 266th Judicial District Court.
The investigation into Briseno's misconduct with a 15-year-old male began in 2011 following a complaint from a concerned parent, Dublin Police Chief Lannie Lee said at the time of his arrest.
That same week, Briseno resigned his position as a junior high coach with Dublin ISD. Days later, an interview was conducted with another 15-year-old male. Both victims were Dublin Junior High students when the incidents occurred.
Investigator Chris Wernert said he interviewed both victims, who said they had exchanged explicit photographs with Briseno by text message. The victims reportedly told Wernert they sent photographs to Briseno following a request by the coach. A message relating to the images was reportedly obtained from one of the victim's cell phones.
Briseno will not be required to register as a sex offender since state law doesn't allow for sex offender registration requirements in such cases.
