By LESLIE MIELKE
BLACKFOOT â€”Â Christopher Charles Cox, 39, the former principal at the Snake River Junior High School, was sentenced in August for one count of sexual abuse of a child under 16 years of age.
He was originally charged with three counts of sex abuse but Bingham County Prosecutor Scott Andrew said his office dropped two of the charges in exchange for Coxâ€™ guilty plea.
Seventh District Judge Gregory Moeller sentenced Cox to not less than three and not more than 18 years in the Idaho Department of Correction.
