Grundy County court officials tell us sentencing for Thomas Christopher Andrews will come at a later date, but no date has been set yet.
Andrews was a teacher at Swiss Memorial Elementary.
Grundy County Sheriff Clint Shrum says the victim was a 14-year-old student. But Shrum would not say whether that 14-year-old was once a student of Andrews.
