BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A former Vermont middle school coach and school safety officer accused of having sex with a student has agreed to plead guilty to one count of possession of child pornography.

Last year, 42-year-old Robert Dykes of Dummerston was charged with sexual assault of a minor and other offenses after police said sexually suggestive communications between Dykes and the student were found on a school computer. The student admitted she had sexual contact with Dykes.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports under a plea agreement, Dykes will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison. He will not be allowed to have any contact with anyone under 18 and be prohibited from being at schools, playgrounds, parks, and other places where children are likely to gather.
