MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – A high school teacher in Murfreesboro has been added to the state sex offender registry after pleading guilty to sending sexual messages to two female students.
Jason Lancaster was suspended from his job at Blackman High School after the girls said he sent text messages and contacted them through social networking Internet sites.
The Daily News Journal reported one of the girls said the 37-year-old Lancaster wanted to "see more skin" after she sent him a digital photo.
Defense attorney Derek Howard said his client pleaded to four of 10 sexual offense counts against him last week to spare his family and the girls a trial.
Assistant District Attorney Laurel Hemenway said Lancaster won't go to jail but he can't teach at primary or secondary schools.
