A former substitute custodian in the Grossmont Union High School District pleaded guilty Wednesday to texting a teenage girl to meet him for sex.
Elias Morales II, 21, was working as a substitute custodian at El Capitan High School in February when he attempted to have a relationship with a 14-year-old student.
Morales accepted a plea agreement Wednesday that could lead to jail time. He may also have to register as a sex offender.
The custodian asked the student to skip class and meet him off-campus, and San DIego County Sheriff's Department detectives — posing as the student — agreed to meet up for a sexual liaison.
When Morales drove to the planned Lakeside location Thursday, deputies arrested him.
District officials said Morales passed screening done by Department of Justice and FBI before his hiring.
