The former Chattahoochee H.S. Teacher, Preston Paris was sentenced to 25 years behind bars. He confessed to molesting a 13-year-old girl, according to the Fulton County District Attorney.
Preston Paris will also serve a year on probation after pleading guilty to child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes as well as statutory rape, the DA's office stated.
Preston Paris was a social studies teacher as well as a swim coach at Chattahoochee High School in Johns Creek. A Roswell investigative previously claimed that Paris met the victim on Tinder and then communicated with her on Snapchat.
During his statement in 2018, Investigative Chad White read aloud a section of the messages Paris sent the target, in which he described himself as "daddy." According to White, Paris drove her to his apartment on Barrington Oaks Ridge in Roswell. Where he violated the girl and then drove her back home, according to cops.
The 13-year-old went to the same Cobb Area school as Paris' child. Roswell authorities became aware when the girl informed her gym teacher that she and Paris were "dating."
Paris was arrested by Roswell police at Chattahoochee H.S. on October 1, 2018, and was "immediately divided from our district" according to Fulton County Schools. The North Fulton teacher was denied bond following the charges.
