Forty-nine year old David Kenneth Daniel of Lyerly was sentenced to 7 years in prison and 20 years probation late last week. 

Daniel was arrested after responding to an advertiesment on Craigs List that was posted as part of an on-line predator sting set up by the Trion Police Department.  Daniel responded to the online advertisement the same day it was posted and went to the Trion track field to meet up with what he thought was a 15 year old boy.  Daniel admitted to Trion Police that he had made the contact on his own laptop computer. 

Daniel was a veteran teacher with the Chattooga County School System and was teaching at Leroy Massey Elementary School at the time of his arrest.
