Andy Douglas sentenced to years' supervision; likely to face suspension

Quincy High School's Boys Basketball coach has been sentenced to a year's supervision after pleading Guilty to a DUI charge.

Court records show that sentence was handed down Monday against Andy Douglas, based on an early June incident. A DUI charge was filed in mid July, and Douglas was free on $1,000 bond. Douglas will also have to pay just over $2,000 in fines, court costs and fees. The case was handled by special prosecutor and former Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard, due to a conflict of interest. QPS Public Information Officer Bob Gough issued a short statement Thursday saying that the District was "aware of the situation" regarding Douglas. He added that "as it a personnel matter, the district cannot comment at this time."

Douglas also issued a statement apologizing for the incident, saying he made an "extremely selfish decision that could have had a negative effect on myself and others." He added that he's likely to face a suspension from the District, saying "I am behind them on that." See Douglas's full statement below.
