Former Venable Elementary School fourth-grade teacher Corey Schock has pleaded guilty to online coercion and enticement of a 15-year-old Northern Virginia girl.
Schock, 44, was arrested February 10 and indicted by a federal grand jury May 29. According to a March 7 affidavit, Schock’s participation in the online relationship—under the profile name “Nick Nick” and username “spiderx99”—began November 10, 2013 through the platform of the messaging app known as KIK.
In a statement of facts filed with the plea agreement, Schock admitted to exchanging sexually explicit pictures with the victim, whom he knew to be underage. Prosecutors say documents show Schock engaged in similar conduct with numerous other minors over a two-year period.
Schock faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum penalty of life in prison. His sentencing hearing will take place on August 29, 2014.
