A former Cedar Falls high school coach and teacher has been given 10 days in jail for stealing students' medications from a locked school nurse's office.

Thirty-four-old Douglas Wilkinson was sentenced Monday in Waterloo. The sentence included one to two years of probation. He'd pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of prescription drugs and to making a false theft report. He'd been arrested Feb. 9.

Wilkinson was an English teacher at Cedar Falls High School and a basketball coach at Holmes Junior High School.

Court records say a security camera caught Wilkinson entering the nurse's office at Holmes Junior High on Feb. 5 and stealing the drugs from the medicine cabinet. He told investigators he was addicted to some prescription medications.
