A police officer who had repeated sexual encounters with a 15-year-old girl in the back seat of her car has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Steven Wayne Morris, 28, was an officer for the East Texas town of Bullard when he began texting a student at Bullard High School. Within a year, the two began having sex in the back of her car, according to media reports.

Morris initially denied the charges but confessed to Texas Ranger investigators. He entered a guilty plea as part of a plea bargain, KLTV reports.

He had been suspended from the force once rumors began circulating about the relationship in 2009, and later was fired.
