NASHVILLE — A former Nashville-area high school football player has been sentenced to three years' probation for making racially motivated threats to an African-American assistant coach at the school.
The U.S. attorney's office says 20-year-old Jonathan Caine was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Nashville. He was charged with a misdemeanor hate crime and pleaded guilty to interfering with a federally protected right in November.
Prosecutors say Caine made repeated anonymous threats to the victim and other school officials.
The victim and the high school where he works were not identified.
The plea agreement also requires that Caine be placed on home confinement for two months, complete a comprehensive substance abuse and treatment program and complete 520 hours of community service directed at needy minority communities.
