Judge finds parent guilty of assaulting coach


A judge found a Lauderdale County man guilty of assault after the man attacked an employee at his child's school.

Edward Jenkins of Killen was convicted of second degree assault.

Jenkins attacked a coach at Rogers High School in March for yelling at his 8-year-old son.

Jenkins said he was upset because the coach, Chris Krieger, was talking inappropriately to his son. He said the coach made a threatening move and he was just defending himself.

Krieger sustained minor injuries.

Jenkins will be sentenced on December 20.
