AIKEN, S.C. -- Guilty is the plea from former North Augusta High school and Paul Knox Junior High assistant principal Steven Eubanks as he faced a judge in an Aiken County court.

"This is not a case where we had a confession. This was a case where we had 6 victims who were very credible and very consistent in the allegations they made against Mr. Eubanks," said Brenda Brisbin of the Aiken County Solicitor's Office.

One of the 6 victims recorded a phone conversation with Eubanks to help indict him. Four male and 2 female victims alleged Eubanks had inappropriate sexual relations with them from 1975 to 1995. The six victims are a product of a special hot-line sled started when the investigation first opened.

"I'm a little shocked at the number of individuals who have come forward and the number of individuals who have been victimized. But like I said, I encourage them to keep coming forward and allow themselves to be healed so that justice can be served," said SLED Agent Paul LaRosa back in November 2008.

And with charges ranging from criminal sexual conduct to a lewd act on child, Stephen Eubanks admitted his guilt on all six charges. And now as he prepares to serve his time, this is one more way his victims can prepare to move on with their lives.

Eubanks' six 10 year sentences will run concurrent meaning he got a decade in prison. The judge did tell him he would get back 23 days of the time he served when he was first charged in 2008.
