(Valley City, ND) -- A former Valley City Schools substitute teacher and coach has been sentenced to 270 days in jail for solicitation of a minor.

64-year-old Davy Zinke pleaded guilty to luring minors through the internet this week.

The former teacher was charged after a student told police she and Zinke had messaged on Snapchat for 900 consecutive days, starting when she was just 14.

Some of those messages included pictures of Zinke exposing himself.
