RENO, Nev. (AP) — A former substitute teacher in Reno has been sentenced to three months in jail and probation for having sex with a student.

KOLO-TV reports that 41-year-old Darrell Baldwin II was sentenced Monday following an investigation that began last April when a Washoe County School District counselor of the relationship.

Prosecutors say the student told investigators she met Baldwin while he was working at Wooster High School and the two first had sex at a Reno motel after a Homecoming football game in September 2018.

In the months that followed, she said they had sex so many times she couldn’t count. Court records say her phone records showed 6,000 phone calls and text messages between the two.

Investigators say the two exchanged gifts during the holidays and at one point he bought her a diamond ring.

Baldwin, who also worked previously as an assistant football coach, turned himself in to authorities last May. He must register as a sex offender and faces up to five years in prison if he violates his probation when he’s released from jail.
