WICHITA (AP) — A former Kansas school teacher has been jailed and charged with child sex crimes.

The Wichita Eagle reports 48-year-old Shawn Wingfield was arrested Saturday on two counts of sexual exploitation of a child. A Wichita Northwest High School spokeswoman says Wingfield began working there in 1997. He resigned July 19.

Wingfield posted on Facebook last week that he was resigning for his personal health and wellbeing. He’s in the Sedgwick County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
