UNION COUNTY, N.C. – A North Carolina man was arrested and fired from his job at a high school for allegedly exchanging inappropriate photos with a student.

WSOC reported that Jeffery Long, 31, of Monroe, was employed as a monitor in the computer lab at Piedmont High School.

On Thursday, school officials became aware of allegations about Long and a student possibly exchanging inappropriate photos through Snapchat.

Union County Public Schools officials and Union County deputies began investigating the matter and found that Long had “exchanged inappropriate photos with the student and inappropriate physical contact had occurred between them.”

Deputies charged Long with three felony crimes for indecent liberties with a minor and one charge for disseminating harmful material to a minor, a misdemeanor under North Carolina law. The suspect has since been fired from his job at the school.
