Sex With a Student Likely to Get Former Assistant Six Years

Demario Thomas pleaded guilty to having sex with a student and admitted he knew how old she was.

INDIANAPOLIS--Sex with a student will likely put a former teaching assistant in prison for six years. Demario Thomas, 29, pleaded guilty in Indianapolis to sexual misconduct with a student. 

Thomas was arrested in June after the student's mom contacted authorities. Thomas admitted to sleeping with the 15-year-old girl whom he met while teaching at West Lane Middle School in the Washington Township School District. 

He also admitted he knew how old she was, but told police he was in love with her.

Thomas has not been sentenced yet, though his plea deal calls for no more than six years in prison. He will have to register as a sex offender, reported RTV6's Jordan Fischer. A sentencing hearing is Oct. 25.
