EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A former southern Illinois math teacher and cross country coach pleaded guilty Wednesday to federal charges involving sexual misconduct with girls.

Timothy Going, 43, of Fairfield entered the pleas to a three indictment counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a minor, and one count of possessing visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

Each exploitation charge is punishable by 15 to 30 years in prison. The other count carries a possible 10-year prison term.

Going remains jailed without bond, pending sentencing scheduled for Jan. 5.

St. Clair prosecutors also have charged Going with four counts related to the videotaping girls ages 15 to 18 last November in the bathroom of a Super 8 motel in Fairview Heights, near St. Louis.

Going also is accused in Wayne County with illegally placing a video camera in the girls’ locker room at Fairfield Community High School, where he taught and coached cross country.
