Gadsden teacher charged with sexting students

GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) – An Etowah County teacher has been accused of sexting four high school students.

Sheriff Todd Entrekin said in a news release that 31-year-old Kayla Lynn Hodges was arrested Monday on four misdemeanor counts of a school employee having sexual contact with a student under the age of 19.

Investigators say Hodges sent sexual photos and text messages while she was employed at Gadsden’s Gaston School. The Gadsden Times (http://bit.ly/1QoyovB) reports that Hodges taught seventh- and eighth-grade math.

Etowah County Superintendent Alan Cosby says Hodges resigned from her job on Jan. 7.

It is unclear whether Hodges has an attorney.
