DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A former volleyball coach was sentenced Thursday for sex offenses against a 14 year old Centerville teen.

Joshua Fisher, 29, of Cincinnati, was sentenced to six months in jail, five years probation and will be designated a Tier II sex offender. Tier II offenders are required to register their address every 180 days for 25 years. He also can no longer coach any minors.

Fisher was a junior varsity volleyball coach and instructor at Lakota East High School in West Chester at the time of the offense.

Prosecutors say he met the Centerville girl through a traveling volleyball team he coached that was not associated with either Lakota East or Centerville high schools. They say Fisher had a sexual relationship with the girl near her Centerville home in September and October 2013.

He was found guilty in January of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
