FAIRFIELD — A children’s music teacher who molested five of his students more than a decade ago was sentenced Friday to 11 months in jail.
Corey G. Wilkins, 35, has been in jail since his arrest in April by Dixon police. Wilkins’ arrest came after he told someone at his church last year that he had molested young boys years earlier, according to his defense attorney Denis Honeychurch.
The students are all now adults, with the youngest now 21, according to the prosecutor. The victims’ ages at the time they were molested ranged from 9 to 17.
Wilkins pleaded no contest in December to a felony charge of committing lewd and lascivious acts on children.
He was set to be released from jail Friday night and will face lifetime registration as a sex offender. He was also placed on four years of formal probation and was ordered not to be near children or to possess pornographic material without the permission of his probation officer.
In addition to teaching music in Dixon and Vacaville, Wilkins was active in the Bay Area music scene and worked with students in productions at Will C. Wood High School in Vacaville.
