A man who worked as a substitute teacher pleaded guilty to sex charges after having inappropriate relationships with three high school students in the space of a single school year.
Jamar Ballard, 29, accepted three concurrent 15-year prison terms on two counts of improper relationship between an educator and a student and one count of sexual assault of a child.
Ballard was arrested in April after a student told a staff member at Nacogdoches High School that she had sex with the substitute in a classroom. Additional victims came forward after Ballard's initial arrest, the station reported at the time.
An arrest warrant affidavit outlined in a separate KTRE report states that Ballard asked a student to meet him in the classroom after school.
The affidavit noted that video surveillance from the school "shows the girl go into the classroom and then Ballard looking right and left down the hallway before closing the door." The victim told police that she told Ballard not to have sex with her but that he proceeded despite her objections.
According to the Nacogdoches County Sheriff, the former teacher initially faced additional charges.
The state dropped two counts after it was determined one of the victims had consensual sex with Ballard, according to KTRE. In one incident, the station noted, Ballard offered to give a student a ride home from school but instead drove to a hotel and had sex with her.
