CORNITH, Miss. (WTVA) - Michael Shane Casabella pleaded guilty to three child sex charges.
One charge was for fondling, one for child enticement and another for sexual battery.
District Attorney John Weddle says Casabella will serve eight years day-for–day in a state correctional facility.
Weddle says that victims were pleased with the plea deal and that letters from victims were read alound in court.
The former school administrator at a small north Corinth private school was found guilty.
The district attorney says it took courage for the initial victim to come forward as many in the community did not believe her.
Alcorn County Sheriff Ben Caldwell says Casabella will begin serving his sentence in a Rankin County facility.
