JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

A former Sikeston area school teacher who pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct with a child was sentenced to five years probation.   

Andrew J. Delles, 29, of Jackson was sentenced to five years probation on a suspended execution of sentence. If he violates the terms of his probation he could face four years in prison.

Delles had pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct involving a child less than 15 years of age. 

The investigation began nearly a year ago (March 22, 2012) when allegations of misconduct with a student came to the attention of the Sikeston R-6 Junior High staff. 

The cell phone of a student was subsequently searched and police located nude pictures of Delles on the child's phone. 

It was discovered during the investigation that Delles had sent the pictures of himself directly to the student. 

Delles was arrested and removed from teaching at the school.    

In court, Delles admitted to sending naked pictures of himself to a 14-year-old student with the intent to arouse sexual desire.
