NORWALK, Calif. (KABC) -- A former high school coach pleaded no contest Friday to molesting a teen girl over a five-year period.
Bryan Shepherd, 49, is accused of molesting the teen beginning when she was 13. Shepherd is a former track and girls basketball coach at Bellflower High School.
Shepherd pleaded no contest to one count of continuous sexual abuse of a child and two counts of forcible lewd acts on a child.
The prosecutor said Shepherd would received 28 years in state prison under terms of a negotiated settlement. Shepherd's sentencing is scheduled for March 25.
