Former Brighton Teacher Caught in Sex Sting

By  | 

A former Livingston County elementary school teacher is due in court Tuesday in Detroit to face child sex-abuse charges.

Wayne County sheriff's deputies Monday arrested the 25-year-old ex-music teacher in an Internet sex sting operation.

Investigators say the man had been communicating with undercover agents posing online as a 14-year-old girl since November 2003.

They say he'd arranged to meet the girl for sex.

Brighton school officials say they're shocked by the charges. They don't think any of the district's students were involved. They say a background check on the suspect showed no problems.
