PIKE CREEK, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A former teacher and athletic director at a Delaware high school has pleaded guilty to sexual solicitation of a child.
    
The Delaware Department of Justice announced Brian R. Budd's plea on Monday.
    
Police said that in July 2016 the 34-year-old Columbus, New Jersey, resident told the 16-year-old boy he would introduce him to a 20-year-old woman. But when the teen arrived at the meeting spot behind a store, he found Budd. Police say Budd pretended to be the woman in a text, asking the teen to allow Budd to perform a sex act. The boy called 911.
    
Budd was the athletic director at Thomas McKean High School in Wilmington, where he also taught math and coached swimming.
    
He faces up to 15 years in prison at sentencing later this year.

    Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Conservationists call it a "threatened historic place." The Phillips Packing House in Cambridge was built in the 1920s. At its peak, nearly 10,000 employees packed vegetables and shucked oysters inside its factory. But after closing in the 60's, the building and its two, towering smokestacks have sat untouched. But now, a new initiative aims to restore the Phillips Packing House as soon as this year.
