CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

A former music teacher at Bible Baptist School in Shiremanstown has pleaded guilty to charges he fondled and inappropriately touched young boys.

William Jackson, 58, of New Cumberland, entered the guilty plea Tuesday to 11 of 25 charges, including three felony counts of sexual contact with a student, five felony counts of corruption of minors, and a single felony count of indecent assault.

He will face a maximum penalty of 26 years in prison when he is sentenced at a later date, and will have to register as a convicted sexual offender for the remainder of his life.

Jackson was arrested in September for having inappropriate contact with seven boys as young as 10 years old.

According to the criminal complaint, one student told investigators that Jackson fondled him while his pants were down and sometimes gave him private massages while the two were alone together in the music room.

Other boys reported that Jackson beginning in 2009 touched their groins over their clothing, kissed them on the cheek, massaged their buttocks, and spoke to them of masturbation and pornography during private music lessons and counseling sessions in the music room, according to the complaint.
