The alleged behavior that led to charges against the Colonial Forge High School track coach took place throughout the previous school year, according to court records.

Delvin Ladon Jackson, 37, of Stafford, who is also a security guard at the high school, is charged with three counts of soliciting prostitution from a minor. At least two more people have come forward with allegations against Jackson since he was arrested Wednesday, but no charges have been filed in those cases, Stafford Sheriff's spokeswoman Amanda Vicinanzo said.

According to an affidavit for a search warrant filed in Stafford Circuit Court, Detective Robert Firkin interviewed the juvenile Monday after receiving a complaint about Jackson. The boy told Firkin that during the 2017-18 school year, Jackson told the boy on multiple occasions that he could make a "substantial amount of money" by engaging in sex with older men.

The boy told police that on at least one occasion, Jackson offered to pay the boy himself if he would engage in the suggested activities.

The affidavit states that the boy told Firkin about a time when he received a request to engage in illicit sexual activities from an unfamiliar number. The boy said Jackson contacted him later and admitted sending the message, according to the affidavit.

Firkin wrote that the boy received phone calls and text messages from Jackson and the boy described an occasion when Jackson showed him a number of pornographic images on his phone.

The search warrant allowed investigators to search Jackson's cellphone to obtain data in an effort to corroborate the boy's story.

Jackson, who is on administrative leave from his Colonial Forge duties, is being held in the Northern Neck Regional Jail. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for April 1 in Stafford Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.
