Alamo Junior High Teacher Accused of Online Solicitation of a Minor

MIDLAND, TX (KWES)

A teacher for the Midland Independent School District has been arrested for his relationship with a student.

Shane Sawyer, 22, was put behind bars for texting inappropriate things to a female student.

It all happened while he was a teacher and coach at Alamo Junior High.

Last week, he admitted to police that he had texted the girl asking for explicit photographs and a sexual relationship.

Sawyer was questioned after the student told the Midland Independent School District employees about the text messages.

He is now facing charges for online solicitation of a child.
