Pittsburg ISD employee jailed, allegedly sent offensive picture to student

PITTSBURG, TX (KLTV) - A Pittsburg ISD employee turned himself in Friday after authorities said he allegedly sent an offensive picture to a student.

According to a Facebook post from the Camp County Sheriff's Office, 32-year old Jackson David Boyd of Pittsburg turned himself in on a warrant for the offense of Sale, Distribution, or Display of Harmful Material to Minor.

The post said that on Tuesday, August 21, the Camp County Sheriff's Office was requested to assist the Pittsburg Independent School District Police Department in a criminal investigation involving a Pittsburg ISD employee and a high school student.

Sheriff Alan McCandless and Chief Deputy Chris Clark met with Pittsburg ISD Police Chief Tyrone Rogers and obtained information collected by the Pittsburg ISD Police Department to continue the criminal investigation.

The Sheriff's Office said they determined in June, Boyd sent an inappropriate and offensive picture through a social media application to the Pittsburg ISD high school student. The student later reported the incident to another Pittsburg ISD employee which led to the initial investigation with the Pittsburg ISD Police Department.

The post said upon further investigation, Chief Deputy Clark presented the case to Camp County Attorney Angela Saucier, and it was determined that there was probable cause to move forward in obtaining an arrest warrant for the offense of Sale, Distribution, or Display of Harmful Material to Minor. The post said the elements of that offense are a Class A Misdemeanor.

The Sheriff's Office said they are still investigating other allegations related to this case.
