Former DARE Officer admits to relationship with teen

A former DARE Officer admits he had a relationship with a 14-year-old girl.

Last May a Mercer County Grand Jury indicted 31-year-old Jason Elder on more than 140 counts of rape, sodomy, and sexual abuse.

Elder pleaded guilty to those charges Friday.

As part of a deal with prosecutors, he will spend three years in prison and complete a sex offender treatment program.
