Former teacher pleads guilty to sexual misconduct with child | Crime
A former Bootheel Missouri school teacher accused of sending sexually explicit photos of himself to a student has pleaded guilty.
Andrew J. Delles, 29, of Jackson, MO appeared before Judge Benjamin Lewis on Monday and admitted to sending naked pictures of himself to a 14-year-old student “with the intent to arouse sexual desire,” according to a news release from Captain James McMillen of the Sikeston Department of Public Safety.
Delles was arrested on March 22, 2012 following allegations of misconduct with a student came to the attention of the Sikeston R-6 Junior High School staff where he worked.
Captain McMillen said a search of the student’s cell phone revealed nude photos of Delles.
Delles will be sentenced on March 11.
