A 35-year-old soccer coach at a private school has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for sexually abusing a child.

According to a report in The Dallas Morning News, the now 16-year-old girl, who testified Friday, told Matthew Alan Adams that "you took my innocence away."

Adams also taught P.E. and health at Fairhill School, a private school in Dallas that specializes in teaching children learning disabilities. The girl Adams abused is dyslexic.
