CARLISLE — The former Bible Baptist School music teacher pleaded guilty in Cumberland County court Tuesday to a host of charges filed against him for sexually abusing children at the school.

William C. Jackson, 58, of New Cumberland, pleaded guilty to seven counts of corruption of minors, three counts of institutional sexual assault, and one count of indecent assault.

Jackson was charged in September, after a 17-year-old boy told police that Jackson had fondled him, court documents state.

But as police conducted the investigation, Senior Assistant District Attorney Christin Mehrtens-Carlin said the total number of victims increased to seven, coming from six different families.
