On June 15, a jury unanimously found Jason Wesley Keller guilty on six counts of felonious sexual offense with a student and two counts of taking indecent liberties with a student.

For five counts of felonious sexual offense with a student contained in the indictment against him, Keller will spend five consecutive 10-12 month sentences in prison as a result of sentencing handed down in Davidson County Superior Court.

For the remaining three counts, Keller will have to complete 30 months of supervised probation once he is released.

The Davidson County Detention Center lists Keller as a current inmate as of June 15. His inmate ID number is 211234. VINElink, a nationwide database of custody and sex offender registry information, lists his scheduled release as Jun 14, 2027.

In July of 2019, Keller was charged with 10 counts of sexual activity with a student by a teacher, school administrator, student teacher, coach, or school safety officer.

Keller is now 45 years old. He was 42 at the time of his arrest in 2019.

According to the 2019 press release from the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office, Keller had sex 10 times over a one-year period between August 2008 and May 2009 with a female high school student. That female student allegedly reported the incidents in 2009.

Keller had been an assistant principal at Union Grove Christian School at the time of his arrest. He was also a pastor.
