RALEIGH — The former coach of the varsity girl’s softball team at Wakefield High School pleaded guilty Monday to 11 counts of sex offenses with a student.
Jamie Lloyd Ayers, who was also an assistant coach on the boy’s football team, a PE teacher, and a health teacher, was sentenced to minimum of 5 years in prison.
He was first arrested in May 2013.
WTVD reported that Ayers began the relationship with the student when she was under the age of 16.
The victim in the case told a judge in court Monday that she became a victim shortly after meeting Ayers.
“He victimized me from the moment I set foot on the softball field,” she said.
The victim also told the judge that he introduced her to his daughter and they were close “like sisters.”
