The interim track coach at Colonial Forge High School was arrested Wednesday on charges that he solicited prostitution from a boy who attends the school.

Delvin Ladon Jackson, 37, is charged with three felony counts of soliciting prostitution from a minor under the age of 16, Stafford County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Amanda Vicinanzo said Wednesday night.

Jackson, who is also a security guard at the school, was confronted by police at the school before being taken to the Sheriff’s Office to be interviewed. He was later placed in the Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond. According to his Facebook page, Jackson used to work at the jail.

It was not clear Wednesday how Jackson delivered the propositions to the boy, when the offenses took place, how police were tipped off about the offenses or the exact age of the boy.

Because the child is younger than 16, each charge is a Class 5 felony that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Jackson’s girls and boys track teams recently won district and regional championships. The teams are preparing for next week’s state championships and likely will need new leadership in light of Jackson’s legal troubles.

Jackson was an assistant coach for the Colonial Forge teams before being named interim head coach this school year.

Anyone with information about Jackson’s case is asked to call Detective Robert Firkin at 540/658-4400.
