NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. -- A former Nassau County Sheriff's Office school resource officer was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Thursday on two counts of sexual battery involving a minor.

Alan Jon Manchester, 47, was also sentenced to 10 years of sex offender probation, according to a release from the State Attorney's Office. He pleaded guilty to the charges in April.

Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper told First Coast News in June 2013 the incident happened several years ago.

Leeper said at the time "we got word of something," that may have happened and handed the case off to the State Attorney's Office.

According to the State Attorney's Office, Manchester impregnated the victim, who is now 22, when she was 15 and 17 years old.
