Omar Curry has a two-year-old child by one of his teenage conquests.

He was found to be the father after DNA tests were carried out when the teen came forward to say she fell pregnant after having sex with her coach.

The unnamed teenager was the third girl from Belleview High School in Marion County, Florida, who came forward to say they had slept with the basketball coach.

Police launched an inquiry in 2009 after he was accused of having sex with a 15-year-old-girl in the school’s locker room.

The girl said Curry, a social studies teacher, called her out of class and took her to the female locker room where they had sex.

After she told friends Curry was arrested on sexual battery charges.

Another girl aged 17 came forward a few days after his arrest and said they had sex in March 2008.

She claimed Curry removed her clothing and carried out a sex act.

The girl also told investigators that in March after Curry sent her a text message they met at a store near the school after which they went to the school and had sex.

After initially being reluctant to come forward, a third girl, also aged 17, said she and Curry had sex in January 2008.

Tests later showed Curry was the father of her child.

The 32-year-old was sacked from his position after being charged with under age sex.

Curry had been expected to contest the charges when he appeared in court in Ocala, Florida, but instead entered a guilty plea to all the charges.

Prosecution lawyers said by pleading guilty he had spared his three victims from having to give evidence.

‘I think that he should take responsibility for what he did, and by entering a guilty plea he did presumably take responsibility,’ said Lisa Herndon, sex crime supervisor with the State Attorney’s Office.

‘I always think it’s better for victims not to go to trial, but on the other hand it can also provide closure for them.’

Curry was remanded in custody to await sentencing on three counts of sexual battery on a child.

His sentence will be determined by Circuit Judge Hale Stancil.

While the maximum penalty is life, sentencing guidelines call for just less than 25 years in prison.
