CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A former Montgomery County Central High School coach has been found not guilty of sexual abuse by reason of insanity.

The Leaf-Chronicle reported Phillip Horsey was found not guilty of rape and sexual abuse of a 16-year-old girl.

The incident was alleged to have happened in 2011.

Horsey was found not guilty because the judge ruled Horsey has a type of dementia.

He will receive treatment for the condition as an outpatient.

Horsey was the former football coach at Central High School, and the field is named for him.
