A former Delaware county jail corrections officer admitted in court Tuesday to having sex with a female student while he was a volunteer instructor at the Delaware Area Career Center.
Eric Jaynes pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual battery and one count of disseminating material harmful to a minor. Jaynes told a judge the sexual encounters happened on three separate occasions earlier this year. He also admitted to sending a sexually explicit video via social media to the teen.
Jaynes could be sentenced to a maximum of 16 years in prison and must register as a sex offender. He will be sentenced in January.
Jaynes was working as a volunteer instructor at the school, teaching law-enforcement to high school students there. He remains free on bond until sentencing.
