CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) — A former eastern New Mexico assistant track coach accused of sexual misconduct with a student will have to register as a sex offender after entering a plea agreement.

The Eastern New Mexico News reports Scott Fly pleaded no contest to criminal sexual communication with a child, a fourth degree-felony, on Tuesday.

Under the plea agreement, Fly will receive a deferred sentence of 18 months of probation, register as a sex offender for 10 years and pay various court fees.

Deputy District Attorney Jake Boazman says the 24-year-old was arrested last year after authorities learned that he had sent "lewd and obscene" images to a 14-year-old Clovis Christian School student.

Fly stopped working at the school after his contract ended in mid-2017.

The girl has relocated out of state with her family.
