A former Denton school teacher was sentenced to nine years in prison for having sex with a 13-year-old girl. Twenty-six-year-old Lee Holmes pleaded guilty earlier this month to one count of second-degree sexual offense. According to court records, Holmes originally faced six charges. Prosecutors say the sexual contact was discovered last January after Holmes dropped the girl off at her home. The girl’s mother followed Holmes’ car and caught up with him when his car struck a tree in Queen Anne’s County. Holmes taught at Lockerman Middle School.
