Former Bossier Parish school teacher accused of sexually assaulting students at Benton Elementary School has pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated rape in Bossier Parish District Court Tuesday morning.
After entering his plea, Aubrey Norcross, 50, was sentenced to 50 years in prison.
He faced charges of first-degree rape, video voyeurism of child under 17, eight counts of molestation of a juvenile under 13 and two counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile.
Previously reported by the Press-Tribune: Aubrey Norcross, 47, was originally arrested Oct. 17, 2018, for video voyeurism and more charges were added as more victims came forward.
On Nov. 19, a Bossier Parish grand jury handed down an indictment that included eight counts of molestation of a juvenile, two counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile, one count of first-degree rape and one count of video voyeurism.
The criminal charges allege sexual intercourse with a 5-year-old boy in October; inappropriate touching of others between August 2016 and October 2018; inappropriate behavior involving watching a video; and recording one child with an electronic device in September. Boys and girls ages 11 and under were involved.
