Former High School Trainer Awaits Sentencing

by Alex Carias

It only took a jury in Bryan two days to find a former Livingston High School trainer guilty of sexual assault of a child. But testimony in the sentencing phase for Shannon "Doc" Wheat continues.

39-year-old Wheat was accused of molesting several male students during overnight trips from Livingston to Bryan. Prosecution called members of the victim's family to testify. Wheat's defense team called friends and family of his to testify on his behalf. Some of those witnesses said that Wheat had been molested as a child by his grandfather. Deliberations is expected to begin on Friday.
