FORT STOCKTON - A Fort Stockton teacher, who has been on administrative leave since January, has been arrested.

39-year-old Christopher James Perkins is charged with sexual assault of a child and having child pornography.

Back in January, officials began investigating Perkins after he was accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student.

At the time, the police chief told NewsWest 9 they were reviewing text messages and any other communication the two may have had over computers.

According to the Fort Stockton School webpage, Perkins is a drama teacher at the high school.

He's currently being held in the Pecos County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
