LEEDS (AP) — A former Alabama middle school teacher is free on bond after being arrested on charges of sexting a 14-year-old boy.
Authorities say 31-year-old Ashley Casiday posted $100,000 bond after surrendering at the St. Clair County jail on Wednesday.
Casiday taught eighth-grade English at Leeds Middle School until she resigned on Feb. 19.
Now, authorities say she is charged with transmitting obscene material to a male student. The child's father alerted officials.
Court records aren't yet available to show whether Casiday has a lawyer.
At least 10 female teachers have been arrested statewide in similar cases since 2011.
