CLEVELAND, Ohio - A former East Tech High School security guard was sentenced Wednesday to four years behind bars on multiple charges stemming from inappropriate relationships with students.

Derrick Dugger, 29, was arrested in November.

Court documents said he forced a 15-year-old girl to perform oral sex and sent students inappropriate photos on social media.

Detectives said there were at least three victims.

Dugger entered a guilty plea in June as part of a plea deal to have his charges reduced.

He was sentenced on two counts of sexual battery, two counts of importuning and two counts of gross sexual imposition.

The judge said he took into  consideration it was Dugger's first offense, but Dugger violated the trust of the victims and that fact could not be ignored.

Dugger is a registered tier 3 sex offender; upon his release, he can't life within 1,000 feet of a school or day care.
