BIRMINGHAM, AL (WAFF) -

The man accused of an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old girl apologized to a grand jury Thursday afternoon before being sentenced Thursday.

John Bradley Nash was sentenced to 60 months' probation and six months home confinement in a Birmingham court. He will serve no jail time.

Nash pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography, for which he must register as a sex offender and have no access to pornography of any kind.

Nash apologized to the girl involved and to his family, admitting that what he did was wrong, and that he was embarrassed and ashamed. Police said Nash volunteered at Discovery Middle School, where his father was band director.

The judge overseeing the trial said this is one of the hardest cases she has dealt with. She said she took issue with the fact that you cannot be prosecuted for having sex with a 16-year-old at his age, but that he can and is being prosecuted for sexting with one.

Nash's attorney said he thinks the judge made the appropriate decision given the circumstances.
