Golden, Colo. (AP) A former teacher's aide at a Lakewood Elementary school faces up to six years in prison after pleading guilty to a single count of internet luring of a child.
Thirty-one-year-old Frank Pierce of Golden entered the plea Tuesday in a Jefferson county courtroom.
He was accused of using sexually explicit language online and trying to arrange a meeting with someone he thought was an underage teen. That person was actually an undercover investigator.
Pierce was arrested in November.
He was a teacher's aide at Stober elementary school, and a girls' basketball coach in a youth recreation league.
Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 8.
