Student teacher accused of inappropriate texts to Parkway student

BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

A student teacher at a Bossier Parish high school has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, accused of sending inappropriate texts to a student.

Lt. Bill Davis with the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office confirms that 22-year-old Jacob Sullivan has been issued a summons on the charge.

"We were informed by school officials, as well as the Centenary Police Department," said Davis.

Sullivan is accused of sending inappropriate texts to a student at Parkway High School, where he is a student teacher.

The text messages were reportedly sexual in nature, and investigators believe Sullivan had been sending them for two or three weeks.

Lt. Davis believes these allegations require immediate attention, and points to other cases in which the texting became a prelude to actual contact. "This thing stayed at the level of text messaging, and never got physical, and that is the fortunate side of this case," said Davis.

A spokesperson for the Bossier Parish School Board confirms the district is also investigating but deferred all questions to the Bossier Sheriff's Office saying it's now a criminal matter.
