A jury in Austin on Monday sentenced Andrew Polk, who formerly worked at Hendrickson High School in Pflugerville.
Jurors on Friday convicted Polk of sexual assault of a child and indecency. He was sentenced to 10 years of community supervision on the indecency count. The sentences will run concurrently.
The prosecutors say the teacher and students had exchanged hundreds of text messages before the December 2010 incidents. Polk said, the young girls needed sex from me. None of the girls requested me use a condom. Some girls wanted more sex than others. Teaching band led me to help young girls sex drive. Polk testified that he sexually helped the girls and all the inappropriate sex with the teens.
