DILLON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A military recruiter in Dillon County that found himself behind bars over allegations of sexual misconduct with a student has pleaded guilty of the crime.

Corey Wilson pleaded guilty to two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor on March 19, 2014. He was sentenced to three years in prison to be served concurrently, a sentence that was suspended to three years probation.

Wilson agreed not to work in any South Carolina schools in the future and must also pay $1,000 restitution to his victims.

Captain Cliff Arnette with the Dillon County Sheriff's Office told WMBF News that Corey Wilson, a recruiter for the South Carolina National Guard, was arrested in January 2012 and charged with sexual battery and a lewd act on a minor, a charge involving a 16-year-old Latta High School student.

The victim was 16-years-old at the time of the alleged incident in May 2011, during the time that Wilson visited the school as a recruiter. An investigation into those allegations by the Dillon County Sheriff's Office began after an individual from within the school system notified the school's resource officer about the alleged behavior.

Wilson turned himself in to the Dillon County Sheriff's Office with the assistance of an attorney. He posted a $45,000 bond shortly after the arrest.
