Mona McGrady

The victim of former Mother Lode Christian School Coach Mona McGrady cried as she embraced her mother outside of the South Washington Street courthouse Thursday afternoon.

Moments earlier, McGrady was found guilty of two counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child aged 15 and one count of sexual penetration by a foreign object.

"Even Satan knew His word, the word of God," Jane Doe 1 said. "Her justice is coming. There's no result here that will give her justice."

McGrady was taken into the custody of the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office to await her sentencing date.

She was acquitted on eight additional counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child.

"Not guilty sometimes means not proven to the level that it needs to be proven," said Judge Kevin Seibert. 

Tuolumne County Assistant District Attorney Eric Hovatter said she faces up to four years and four months in state prison, which McGrady will serve at 50 percent time because her crime was not considered a violent felony. 

She will have to register as a sex offender.

McGrady's attorney, Clint Parish of Sonora, declined to comment.
