Thirty-four-year-old Andrew Scott Hasty, of Cumberland, Wisconsin has resigned from Shakopee Public Schools. He’s charged with three felonies after police say he asked a 15-year-old boy to send him photos of his genitals. Authorities say the two met at the Chaska Valley Family Theater drama group.

Hasty was a volunteer with the theater until February 18th. A statement released on behalf of Chaska Valley Family Theater says the theater has policies prohibiting offensive and unwelcome behavior, and “swiftly followed” those policies.

Investigators say there’s no evidence other juveniles were solicited.

Hasty is being held in the Carver County Jail.
