DeSoto County Schools investigating teacher's explicit video

DESOTO COUNTY, Miss. (WMC) - DeSoto County Schools is investigating an explicit video “inadvertently and unknowingly” shared from a teacher’s phone, according to local police.

The Horn Lake High School teacher is now out of a job.

Students told WMC Action News 5 Thursday that the video circulated throughout the school over the past couple of days. The teacher in the video, however, was not at school Thursday.

In fact, a district spokesperson says that teacher is no longer an employee. The spokesperson did not release the teacher’s name.

A statement from the Horn Lake Police Department says they were contacted about the video Wednesday.

The department says DeSoto County Schools is investigating the matter, but if they determine the video’s release was criminal police will launch their own investigation.
