A Maryville man will spend four years behind bars after he engaged in sexual contact with two teenage girls.

Carroll Jay Jones, 47, pleaded guilty to sexual battery by an authority figure and attempted aggravated statutory rape.

Police arrested Jones in March after the mother of one of the victims contacted police. During the investigation, they discovered Jones tried to have sex with another teen back in June 2012.

A judge sentenced Jones on Monday. He will receive credit for the two months he's already spent in jail.
