Former Mississippi teacher arrested, accused of sending inappropriate photos to 16-year-old
WATER VALLEY, Miss. (WTVA) — A former art teacher at Water Valley High School is free on bond after her arrest over an accusation she sent inappropriate pictures of herself to a student while employed at the school.
Prosecutors charged Emily Swinkowski, 27, with enticement of a child and child exploitation.
District Attorney Jay Hale said police started investigating several weeks ago after the allegation arose that she sent the photos to a 16-year-old student.
Hale added another student found out what happened and informed the principal, who got police involved.
Swinkowski resigned and turned herself in to police last Monday. A judge set her bond that same day at $50,000.
