A Reno County jury says a former Buhler high school debate coach and teacher is guilty of child sex crimes involving a foreign exchange student.

Jurors returned a verdict Friday finding Richard Young guilty on two counts of taking indecent liberties, one count of aggravated indecent liberties and one count of solicitation of a child. He is accused of sexually abusing a 15-year-old foreign exchange student who stayed at his home last year.

The student testified last week that Young inappropriately touched him.
