A former Houston school police officer who was charged with two counts of indecency with a 14-year-old middle school student has pled guilty to a lesser charge and will spend no time in jail.
Jacob Ryan Delgadillo, 30, pled guilty to having an improper relationship with the student on Wednesday. According to testimony reported by KPRC, another student said that the victim told her that she performed oral sex on Delgadillo in the girl’s bathroom. Other witnesses say he was seen blowing kisses to the victim through a classroom window. He even sent her nude photos of himself that were taken while he was in his office on campus.
After Delgadillo admitted to fondling the girl in her genital area, the judge offered him a plea deal of 5 years probation with no need to register as a sex offender — dropping the two felony charges. After his probation stint is up, Delgadillo will have a clean record.
After resigning from his job in December 2015, Delgadillo was arrested in January 2016. At the time, the school, which did not respond to Vocativ’s request for comment, sent a note home to parents saying that the district “take[s] situations such as this very seriously.” According to the school’s calendar, Delgadillo’s sentence came just a day before classes let out for the summer.
