NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. – A former Nassau County high school teacher was arrested Friday and charged with sending sexually explicit texts to a student, according to the arrest report obtained by News4Jax.

Shari Braddock, 50, was a teacher and tennis coach at West Nassau High School.

According to the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office, Braddock started sending inappropriate messages to a minor back in May.

According to the arrest report, Braddock knew she could get into trouble when she sent a text to the teen saying quote: “I hope your momma doesn’t see these messages. I’ll be in big trouble. You should delete after.”

The report went on to say that Braddock eventually sent an apology text to the teen and stated that she had been drinking and that drinking makes you “make bad decisions.”

News4Jax found that Braddock resigned from the district around the time the texts were discovered.

Braddock remains in jail without bond. She is facing one count of transmitting harmful materials to a minor.
