Former Band Director Gets Probation for Sexual Assault

By  | 

A former Brazos Valley band director convicted of sexually assaulting a teenager will get probation.

A Brazos County jury recommended the punishment Friday for William Watson. The 28-year-old was convicted Thursday of two counts of sexual assault of a child.

He could have faced up to 20 years for each of the two counts.

Watson travelled to College Station to carry on a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student he had first met when both were in Iola.

A judge will decide the terms of Watson's probation in 30 days.
