Taylor James Guthrie

MURRAYVILLE, Ga. (CBS46) A former teacher at a Hall County high school has been arrested after allegedly sending inappropriate texts to a student.

Taylor James Guthrie, 26, was arrested on Monday and charged with furnishing obscene material to a minor.

The charges stem from an investigation that found Guthrie, a former teacher at Chestatee High School in Gainesville, sent unlawful texts to a 16 year-old female student in early March.

He was suspended from his teaching position as soon as the investigation began and Guthrie later turned in a letter of resignation on March 18.

Guthrie turned himself in to the Hall County Jail on Tuesday and has since posted bond.

No word on when he's expected in court.
