wfir-linkRADFORD, Va. (AP) _ A former instructor on two Virginia college campuses has pleaded guilty to 68 counts of carnal knowledge with a 13-year-old girl. Arthur William Jones II entered his plea Wednesday in Radford. The charges stem from a sexual relationship with a Pulaski girl he met on a website in 2013. She initially claimed to be in her 20s. The 44-year-old defendant worked at Virginia Tech as a military science instructor. He also previously worked at Radford University as a ROTC instructor until 2011. Jones is scheduled to be sentenced May 29. He faces between two and 10 years on each charge, plus a $100,000 fine per charge. He has been held in the New River Valley Regional Jail since he was arrested in January 2014.
