Former Kinston High School Football Coach Enters Plea

Former Kinston High School football coach Ronnie Baker was in court Thursday to answer charges filed against him. The charges he faced were assault on a female, sexual battery and false imprisonment. Baker was arrested in November and is accused of committing these acts against a 30-year-old female employee at Kinston High School. Thursday in court, Baker pled guilty to assault on a female as part of a plea agreement. In exchange, the District Attorney, with the victim's consent, dropped the other two charges and was sentenced to unsupervised probation with a 60 day suspended jail term.
